Welcome Aiden- the newest Pennington family member
Aiden Elias Pennington was welcomed into our family on Wed. August 26th at 12:50PM. We were able to go home on Saturday. Kana and Amici were both here (Shawn- Kana's human was in a wedding so we had Kana for the weekend). Kana left us a present in our room when we returned (poo- ick...which wasn't the nicest welcoming home gift). Shawn and Mary Ellen had brought home one of Aiden's hats that he had been wearing in the hospital. Kana went crazy when he sniffed it but Amici just sniffed it and then went on his merry own way. That is how the first introduction went too. Amici just sniffed Aiden and then went and rested. Kana sniffed and sniffed and barked- he was basically really hyper. Kana was good with Aiden just a lot more excitable and he wanted to shove his nose all over Aiden most of the time. Once Kana went home Amici paid a little more attention to Aiden. He has given him some kisses and has seemed to just accept that this little one is now a part of our family. So far the only mishaps we've had are: Amici some how got a hold of a used vaseline pad and chomped on that for a bit until we caught him and he spilled Aiden's breast milk once as well (I have to pump already because my breast milk supply has been low). Other than that, Amici has seemed to do well. He is confused why I am home every day and still tries to go into the kennel each morning. We've tried to keep the same eating and bathroom schedule for Amici so when I do return back to work he isn't too messed up.
I hope to get a picture of Aiden and Amici soon. I am not comfortable yet having Aiden lay on Amici with no one else around and me holding a camera trying to get their picture. I hope we get one of the 2 of them soon!
