Alexander Daniel

The Bulldog Brigade has a new member. Alexander Daniel was born on October 2, 2015. He was 6 weeks early and weighed just 4 pounds 14 ounces, but he is strong and healthy and we think he's pretty cute.

On the day we brought him home, Olivia was at daycare, so Grif saw him first. He wasn't particularly interested and didn't really understand what the baby was. When Olivia got home, she basically lost her mind. She was VERY curious and wanted to smell him for a long time. For the rest of the evening, she wanted to be where ever he was. She followed us around and when it was time to go to bed, she was NOT having it. She barked and cried and wanted to be right next to his cradle. I was a little surprised by her reaction- I didn't expect her to care at all.

Now that he's been here for a while, both dogs have calmed down and mostly just ignore him. It will be interesting to see how they react when he starts to grab things, crawl or walk! We've got a little time before that happens, so mostly we just spend a lot of time snuggling.
