Happy Birthday, Baxter!!!

My baby boy turned one year old (or I guess really seven years old) today!
Here he was as a baby. Baxter is the one in the middle, resting his head on his sister. He still loves to rest his head like that everywhere!
This was his first night home. Poor thing was scared to death. He cried all night long!
Which made for lots of rest the next day.
And since he came home in February, we tried to keep him warm in his winter coat, but Baxter did not like this coat very much and would fall right over as it was a bit to heavy for him.
And now my little boy has grown up (but his playful pup mannerisms are still sticking!).
I think he's working on his tan here. He loves the sun as much as his mom and finds all the warm sunny spots at the beach!
Boy, did he need a spa treatment in this picture! Good thing I took him for a nice cut today and he got to pick out a yummy cupcake to celebrate his special day. I wish I had taken a picture, but the little thing scarfed it up before I could get my camera out of the case!

Happy Birthday, Baxter!
Here's to many more years of lots of licks!



  1. He is too cute!! Happy Birthday Baxter!

  3. Thanks girls! No, Kates, I was hoping to get a picture of him with his new 'do and the cake! But noooo….he was too quick for me to take my coat and boots off and get my camera! ;)

  4. I'm your newest follower. Also a Baltimore girl but living in Virginia Beach now:) Great recipes. I can't wait to try some of them. Thanks for sharing.

  5. I think we did everything just a few months apart. We brought home our pup on 1/15 and he turned one on 11/16. Congrats on making it through the first year! I had no clue how much work they are. We were joking over thie weekend, that this time last year he was not with us. My how our lives have changed!
