What the February?

Today it’s so beautiful outside (almost 60 degrees), I can’t not be outside. I went to my Hot Mamas exercise class (no joke, that’s what it’s called-oh and don’t type wwwdothotmamasdotcom cuz that’s a porn site-I know from experience and NOT because I was looking at porn-minds out of the gutter!) but I must have been the only one who didn’t get the memo because not another soul was there. I don’t get it, it was 50 degrees out, where was everybody? Since I made the effort to gather all my exercise paraphernalia and Petunia and her must haves to go to this class I didn’t want to just turn around and go home so Petunia and I went for a run around the park. I knew I had to take advantage of the opportunity of the warm weather and sunshine, we won’t be seeing those for a while. Tomorrow we are to get 4-8 inches of the white stuff. UGGGG.
Sick. of. Snow.

My day’s are numbered. In fact I probably only have one or two left. Petunia is so so close to crawling. She gets up on her hands and knees and can stay there for 5-10 seconds before she tires and is back on her tummy. She just mastered the rolling over, she had back to front down at 4 or 5 months but didn’t get front to back until last week and that has opened a whole new world for her and me too. I don’t have to “rescue” her from laying on her tummy any more. She can already scoot around and of course gets into all sorts of stuff, like the stereo and remotes. I think it’s time for the baby gates…….

I have a problem. My dog growls at my baby. We are a concerned about this and of course watch them closely when they are in the same room together. Usually, I am right down on the floor next to them to intervene if need be. Most of the time he doesn’t seem bothered by her. He will come up to her and lick her face or her hands but if she enters his space or touches him he is all out growling just shy of showing his teeth. I think he is jealous of her. I make sure to give him plenty of attention and pets especially, while we are all on the floor together. I don’t want to punish him for growling because that’s his warning system. The funny thing is he LOVES other peoples kids, loves them! So I think it’s a territorial thing and I understand, I mean he was our baby and now not so much. I hope he gets over it soon. Giving him away is a last resort and I don’t want it to come down to that. Do any of you have tips? or suggestions?
