Testing a New Look

I’m testing a new look for the blog. One big change you may notice is that on the right side of the blog I now have my Instagram feed – which replaces my Twitter feed. I’m still working on getting my “about me” page back up and running. Overall, what are your thoughts? Please follow […]

Computer Changes and Crashes

After a few days of computer troubles we seem to be back in business. We tried out a little netbook for a couple of days and all I will say is, don’t buy a single core processor! I had no idea what the difference between a single, double or triple core processor was until this […]

On Monday of this week Brown Bear figured out how to pull herself […]

Brown Bear starts to stand-up for herself

We saw something that excited and frightened us this morning; Brown Bear was sitting beside the Exersaucer, on the outside of it. She grabbed the top of it and she started to pull herself up into a standing position. She got about halfway up and then collapsed back onto her hinnie. Exciting to see her developing and […]
