NBR: A sad day in my house

First let me say no to worry, the twins are doing great. We had my 24-week growth scan the other day and they're both growing perfectly! Jake is 1 lb 7 oz and Jillian is 1 lb 5 oz. They're only 8% in size apart and the Dr. likes to see anything below 20%. So they're awesome.

I'm so sad for another reason. We had to re-home our dog Jimmy. He has never been a fan of EJ and it's just getting worse as EJ is looking play more and more. It's something I've been thinking about for well over a year (when EJ started crawling after Jimmy) and lately it's become obvious that was the best choice for our family. There are so many factors that went into this and I'm too sad to talk about them now. As we speak, Ed is delivering Jimmy to his new home. It's a perfect fit and if I could have my pick of any family, they would be it. I found them through the Basenji Rescue that I used to volunteer and foster. I have thought long and hard about this decision and weighed all of our options. In the end, I want Jimmy to be happy and he deserves a life that he's excited about...not just hiding from a running toddler. Many many tears have been shed even though I know it's for the best.

I will always remember and love my sweat pea.

That sucks and I get it. We have dogs and I feel so bad for them - they used to be the center of attention....I have been thinking of getting a new home for the younger one - it is really hard.

You absolutely did the right thing, especially if he is not a kid lover...and trust me when I tell you that you will have your hands full in a few months!

What a difficult choice for you to make, but it sounds like you made the best one for your children. Glad that the twins are still thriving.
