My best bear friend.
We have fun :)
We fully embraced our title this trip.
Our baby girl turned one <3 She also recently turned into a couch potato.
At 11 months, Umi continues to prove she is the very best, but also very bonkers and bananas.
Snow ruled everything around Umi in month 10.
Umi retired from listening in month 9, she now does as she pleases.
Umi discovered snow at 8 months and it was love at first sight.
7 month Umi continues to grow up too fast, gaining independence and stubbornness.
Umi turned 6 months and met the sky water fountain aka rain for the first time!
This girl was a straight up bum all of week 25.
We played hard and napped hard in week 24.
We spent week 23 up in Tahoe for our first trip away, where Umi found much joy in the mountains.
Week 22 was dog parks galore, meaning lots of fun and slobber.
Keeping busy and cool during a toasty week 21.
The rebellion grows stronger in week 20.
A whole lot of new places and friends in week 19.
We had some surprises in week 18, but it gave us some extra quality family time.
Raissa was out of town most of week 17 so Umi and I had much one on one time together.
Week 16 was a busy week. We brought Umi, which means ocean in Japanese, to see the ocean! She also graduated from her first puppy class!
Finally with week 15 comes more freedom to the outside world, providing tons of explore and tons to dream about afterwards.
Week 14 was just a lot of quality time with this girl :3
We introduced Umi to the bed in week 13, which yields us an either cuddly sweet bedmate or one that wants to devour you.
Much of week 12 had to be spent apart due to a conference and race. At least she did not forget me!
My girls! Neither of whom really listen to me. But we’ve made it to week 11!
This girl is getting heavier and into lots of trouble at week 10. Requires rotating among lots of people to carry her around.
Umi is getting braver at week 9. She is a big fan of the yard where she enjoys sitting on every bush/plant there is.
We brought home our lovely Umi at 8 weeks. Plenty of accidents and worries for a hectic first week, but she’s quickly getting comfy!
