As a way to sort of better introduce my little munchkins, I thought I would post some pictures of them from their first night home up until today.

I'll start off with Bentley. He came to live with us on 11/14/07. He was around 11 weeks old and weighed in at just under 1 pound. When we got to the breeder's, he slowly walked right up to me, put his paw on my knee to lift himself up, and gave me the sweetest kiss. Needless to say, I was sold. Since then, he has been my angel. I lost my baby boy, Tiny, on 11/03/07 and was so distraught I didn't know what to do with myself. Coming home to an empty house was killing me. So, I decided I still had lots of room in my heart for another baby...but I had no idea how much he would help me to heal. Bentley is very much my angel. He is a total Mama's boy who loves to give kisses (but he loves his Daddy very much too). He is a little lover. He doesn't meet a stranger and always offers up kisses freely (even when they're not wanted!).

He is my little floppy-eared boy (and before you ask, yes he CAN stand them straight up...but his floppy ears are his happy ears so they are most often floppy and I love them). He is very in-tune with my moods and what I'm feeling and he is always there when I need some munchkin loving. He is also my goofy boy. He has a multitude of expressions and a good portion of them come across as goofy, which makes him that much more lovable.

And now on to Lexus. She came to live with us on 04/29/08. She was around 12 weeks old and weighed in somewhere around 1.5 pounds. Unlike Bentley, she didn't come from a breeder here in SC. She was flown in from Oklahoma. But, the moment I saw her picture I knew she belonged with us. And after speaking with her breeder numerous times about her and her personality, it sealed the deal for me. And she has been such a joy to have around since then. Lexi is very much a Mama's baby as well (but she very much loves her Daddy too). She follows me everywhere and loves to cuddle with me. At night, she refuses to go to sleep until she has given my feet a good thorough licking. If she doesn't have access to my feet, she will make do with some other exposed body part (leg, arm, hand, face, etc.). As strange as it may sound, I thoroughly enjoy her feet-licking session every night. For some reason it soothes me and helps me to sleep as well. I think somehow she knows this and that it soothes her or comforts her as well.

She loves to give kisses, but she isn't as free with her kisses. She gives Mommy and Daddy and other family members or friends that she is close to kisses pretty freely, but won't even attempt to kiss strangers. Every now and again we'll catch her licking the hand of a stranger that is petting her, but it isn't something she practices routinely.

Lexi is also very in-tune with mine or hubby's moods. She is very quick to comfort us or snuggle with us if we are having a bad day or feeling sad. She is pretty spunky. She will fuss at strange dogs without a second thought sometimes, which is something we are working on.

She is a super jumper. She can jump as high as the counters in our house. She has even jumped high enough to take things OFF the counters. She loves to run. When we go out into the backyard, she immediately starts running circles around the yard. Sometimes Bentley will chase her and it looks like the Chihuahua derby in our backyard!

She loves her Bubba. She likes to cuddle with Bentley, but she doesn't always like to share Mommy and Daddy with Bentley. She is very quick to push him out of the way to get kisses when he is getting kisses. If he is laying or sitting where she wants to sit, she will sit or lay on top of him until he moves or will worm her way in the middle. But, if she wants to play with Bentley and he doesn't want to play with her, she will twist and turn and pout and whine and cry and make the cutest little noises to try and get his attention.

She is most definitely our sweet little girl.

Her first night at home. Gotta love those ears!


Our precious little pumpkin.


She is about 5 months old here.

This is the "intense" side of Lexi.

Tiffany, that 5 month old pic of Lexi looks exactly like Lilibell, right down to the facial expression!

I don't think I've ever seen pics of your munchkins when they were little babies....OMG, how cute and sweet were they!! I love Bentley's little floppy ears and Lexi's how they stood straight up. I swear, your two are just like mine, Lilibell's ears were always at attention, ever since a baby, and Chewy's were always floppy too, yes, his does stand up, but when he's sleeping, lol!

I love your little munchkins and I always enjoy seeing pics of them!

Thanks Mandy. Yes, those beach pictures were from the very same day that Lexi decided sand was a nice snack!

I keep saying in certain pictures and with certain expressions, they could be dead ringers for each other. However, that's where the resemblence ends. Chewy is your "problem child", well Lexi is mine (sort of). We are in the process of teaching her not to bark at and be afraid of strange dogs.

Thank you. They were such sweet babies. I miss those puppy days. And I adore Bentley's floppy ears, then and now. But I'm also a fan of large ears, so Lexi's extra large puppy ears were such a delight for me. She grew into them very quickly though. That's so funny that Chewy's ears stand up when he's sleeping. Bentley's will stand up when he's sleeping if he hears something but doesn't really want to be bothered. When he ears stand up, you know he is very alert. Otherwise he is all floppy and happy (which is usually the case).

Thank you Nadine!

Aww They are to cute! I love the intense look
Thank you. I'm so glad I captured her intense look because its not always easy. Pretty much the only time she will do it (and not always) is when we are eating dinner and she is staring at our food, which is exactly what she is doing in that photo.

Happy Anniversary guys!!
Thanks Nadine! It's on the 21st. We are taking a mini vacation and spending most of it at home! Why not when you live exactly two minutes from an awesome beach? We are taking a little trip for two days to Savannah to go to The Lady and Sons restaurant (gotta love Paula Deen).

Adorable photos!!! The babies are so cute and mommy and daddy sure make a handsome couple!!
Thank you. I do so love my munchkins. You are too kind. :)

Oh Tiffany, what an awesome set of pics. It's amazing how much the two resemble each other. I've seen your beautiful face but not your cute hubby. You two look great together. What a gorgeous family and you can sure tell those babies are loved. Thanks for taking the time to post and I'm so glad you joined us over here for some "chi" fun. Love the sand pictures!!!

I love Paula Deen!! I think she's the sweetest lady. You'll have to let me know how her restaurant was!
