6 months!

DSC00287It’s hard to believe it’s been 6 whole months since our little bundle of joy was born. Looking at him now, it’s crazy to think he was ever so small!

photo14Miles has been home with us for almost 4 months now and we can hardly remember life before him. He makes us laugh constantly and we can easily interact with him or just watch him play for hours at a time.

iPhone-Misc-032He has such a personality and it’s fun to identify his expressions and behaviours – sucky, playful, pensive, excited, etc.

iPhone-Misc-018Miles wants nothing more than to be with us 24/7 and tends to stay within an arm’s reach at every possible moment. Whether he is playing with a toy or vegging on the couch, if one of us gets up and leaves the room he will inevitably follow. He is also extremely affectionate and loves to give kisses and snuggles.

iPhone-Misc-023 Miles-013He is full of energy and we can’t wait until he is fully grown so we can start running with him. For now, he enjoys running around fields and will fetch his ball for as long as we let him.

iphone-009Just as much as he loves to run and play, Miles enjoys his rest. He takes great naps and winds down every night by 9PM like clock work. He’ll chill out or snooze on the couch (in various positions) before we bring him to bed.

Kempenfest-007Happy (Half) Birthday, Buddy!

Thank you for bringing more joy to our lives than we ever dreamed. ❤

  1. Isn’t it funny how one little creature can capture our hearts. I hear you on all those points about Miles. Our dog is the same way. I can’t picture my life without my dog!
    Happy Birthday Miles!

  2. I am so happy that Miles has been such a fabulous addition to your clan! He is adorable and the stories/pics you share are a joy! Enjoy each and every moment. 🙂

  3. They grow up way too quickly don’t they? I’m sure Miles and Toby would be great mates if only there weren’t an ocean between them. They’ll have to make do with looking at each others pics on-line.
