The evolution of wrestling

There is a lot of wrestling going on in our house these days. My dad just loves to wrestle. It started out as "boyfriend wrestling" when my dad and Brandon would wrestle. Dad will say, "It's time for boyfriend wrestling", and Brandon will grunt and drop to the floor. Then, Paige came along and it became "boyfriend and girlfriend wrestling." I mostly supervise, as I don't like to be on my back. But Molly gets right on in there. Most times, Paige is the cheese and Dad and Brandon are the bread in a Paigey sandwich. She giggles the whole time. The kids just love to wrestle with dad. And I love to watch it. I repeat, WATCH it. So you can imagine my surprise when Paige tries to take me down all on her own. Looks like I have to remind her who the alpha Bugg is in this house.

Crawl Coach back again

Paigey learning to crawl

I know I've been offline for awhile now, but I have been one busy Bugg. We moved houses for one and I was a HUGE help with the packing and orchestrating the move (as you can imagine, I am sure). My family went on vacation to New York and Molly and I stayed with Uncle Randy and his girlfriend. I was tasked with guarding the new house of course. But most of all, I have been busy raising these babies of mine. Paige is starting to crawl. So I am right there to coach her, just as I was there to coach Brandon.

I am a man, err Bugg, of many trades...that's why you love me, right?

Man's, er kids, best friend

A Bugg's work is never finished around this house. I have so many responsibilities as the head of this household. I've been working on potty training with Brandon, and I am so proud that he is basically potty trained three months shy of his third birthday. I have been working on tummy time and crawling with Paige and she is not too far away. I have been taking care of the kiddos as we survived two rounds of stomach flu and countless colds. I know that being close for cuddles is the best medicine. I am the best at that! And of course, I am the kids' best friend, always just a paw away when they want to play. I love my babies....

Brandon returns the favor, by showing me how to use the snot sucker

Encouraging Paige-y to push up off her tummy

A shoulder to cry on, when things just get too frustrating

Silent encouragement as we work on potty training (plus, Brandon likes to eat goldfish crackers when he is on the potty, and if I stick close by, I just may snag a few of those crackers)

Brandon makes me into a "dit-dit" (Blanket) burrito, just as he does every night...I'm a good sport

What happens in Vegas...

Molly and I took a road trip to Las Vegas this last week. We had to bring the family along of course (since they are our ride!) We sat in the front seat because we run things around here. I just love visiting my Hal and Cody too. The three of us dogs were peas in a pod all weekend. Grandpa Hal set up a pool so we could cool off. Just a nice refreshing dip...

Buggs are funny...

At least Paige thinks so...

Getting summer ready

It's warming up around here so we Buggs are gearing up for the summer. We convinced our parents to break out the pool. I, of course, don't like to get my paws wet, but Molly jumps right in. In fact, when my mom filled up the pool this weekend and went inside to get the kids dressed, she came outside to find Molly splashing up the water and trying to bite each splash! I just prefer to sit poolside...

Still a kid at heart!!

Even though two news kids have filled out home, my parents can't forget that I am still a kid too. I still love a good cuddle session, I still need comforting when I get sick, I still need to be disciplined when I do something bad. I still think my parents are the best!! See...still a kid!

Here I am, pooped after playing with my toys

I still like to sleep with a little luvie!

A problem of physics

My dad got us this great big comes from a cow or something? Now, I had no problem dragging it out here, but any idea how I can get that back in through the doggy door? I am in a bit of a pickle here...

Snow Buggs

We went on vacation this past week. It was this Buggs first time in snow. I LOVED the snow. And Molly LOVED the snow. We went on long walks in the mountains. Imagine all the new smells. I did my share of marking! There were squirrels to chase. New trees to smells. It was paradise. But next time, I'll remember to bring my coat!

Who needs personal space anyway???

Some people want their own personal space. But Paige has never told me to move back, so until she tells me to back away, I'm going to stay put...

Tummy Time Training

Here we go again...with yet another baby, it's time for yet some more tummy time. Paige seems to like her tummy time more than her brother did. Brandon usually gives her a toy to have by her side, and of course, I place myself just right, so I can give her gentle encouragement. I've got this baby training stuff down!
