One year ago today we picked up Léa from the breeder's place. It was about a two hours drive away, which, as it's always the case when you are excited, seemed longer than it really was I'm sure.
August 27, 2011 - Just got home!
To say I was smitten with her already back then is an understatement. Although she reluctantly went into the travel cage (after all, we strangers were plucking her from out of cage play time), she did really well in the car and came out all on her own when we got home.
Look at those big baby eyes!
She didn't wait very long before taking her first bath at home!
I have, time and time again, gone over the progress she's made during her first year of life when I celebrated every monthly milestone. I could gush some more I guess, but I think I'll keep it simple and just say she brings me a lot of joy and, although I had hesitated at first to take the plunge when I heard of those eggs (was it the right time?), I do not regret for one moment the decision I made that has led me to add her to the family.
Time has definitively flown by quickly, and it's hard to believe that she's lived with us for a year now. I'm loving her more every day and it's hard to think about how things would be without her.
I do hope that this is the first of many years that we'll spend together!
