  • Welcoming pitter-patter of little feet

    Lately I’ve been hearing the pitter-patter of little feet in my home.

    Yep. My significant other, Rebecca Ricks, and I got a bundle of joy a couple of weeks ago.

    We’re fostering the little girl, and she’s keeping us on our toes.

    Even though she’s just a little more than 4 months old, she has an incredible amount of energy. I sometimes wonder how she can contain herself when I leave her in her crate when Rebecca and I have to be away from our home.

    Oh, did I forget to mention the new temporary addition is a puppy?
