Puppy Love

Eleanor and I survived the week at home while Drew was working in Canada. 
I'm not even going to pretend that I'm embarassed over how much television I watched this week.  I'm in love with Downton Abbey (I'm late to the game) and I watched an absurd number of episodes on Amazon Prime while Drew was away.  
Eleanor has had a good week (minus the evening that I decided to put new nipples in her bottles and the milk flow was too much for her, causing her to swallow a lot of air, have a terrible tummy ache and cry A LOT).  Other than that, she's really been quite happy.  
Drew got home before the rainy weather rolled in Thursday evening.  It was really quite beautiful as it rolled in.  
Eleanor's new trick is twisting in circles.  I'm not even sure that she realizes she's doing it yet.  It's just so funny to put her down one way and 5 minutes later she's upside down.  I'm a proud momma, so you will have to humor me with this progression of photos.  Warning: chubby baby in a diaper! 
She can also roll on to her side, but no other rolling just yet.  
Today I tackled my tomato plant.  I've paid almost zero attention to it since E was born and it's gone crazy.  Drew came out to help me move something and took this pic of me cutting it up to compost.  Add that to the list of things I can do while wearing my baby.  
Hanging out in the playroom this evening... Eleanor & Mac.  She was very interested in him and he let her check him out.  She's definitely paying closer attention to the dogs and today she laughed at Foose.  I'm not sure we can call it puppy love just yet, but we're getting there.  
Then he laid down beside her, which she was fine with.  Her funny face is from him licking her hand. 
Poor old Toto, he's just not moving very well today.  He made it about 1/3 of the way up the stairs and then took a tumble.  It scared us so much, but he got back up without a complaint.  I carried him upstairs and I think that we will have to carry him any time there are stairs involved.  I just love this old dog and I'm grateful that while he's slowing down and age is taking its toll, he doesn't seem to be in any pain.
