Only 5 days after the official first day of Fall, and Rockford has definitely abandoned summer without looking back. The leaves are already changing AND falling. The temperatures are already consistently in the 60s and 50s. And my vitamin D levels are at an all time low. Who wants to lend me their SAD lamp?
Liam is getting bigger by the minute. He has already grown since his three year well check in July! He is 40.25 inches tall and 38.6 pounds heavy! He is a funny little character too. Patrick and I have so much fun entertaining and being entertained by him! Liam is still very much into his dinosaurs, but lately he has really gone back to his true roots of loving farm animals. All day long, if you had our house bugged, you would think we had horses, cows, roosters, and goats for pets.
The sad news that we have just experienced is the loss of our sweet Sammy girl. She was a part of mine and Patrick's lives 6 months after we started dating. So from 1997 to 2011, Sammy lived a long,happy life. She tolerated the addition of a Rottweiler and a child to our family. She endured many moves from state to state--too many to list, really. She will be greatly missed by us and those of you who knew her. Say Hi to Bo for us, old girl. Have fun chasing squirrels with your new legs!
