A New Member of the Family!


I'm sorry I haven't updated my blog in a while...but things have been rather hectic with work and home life!  Also my brother is visiting from Italy so I didn't even get a chance to check my email yesterday (shocker for me!)  As most of you are probably already aware if you follow me on Twitter/Facebook, we have a new member of our family!  Albi has a baby sister, Sisina!  Isn't she adorable?!  

We were actually planning on adopting a Westie who had been found by my mom's neighbour's friend and had gotten ourselves all excited about it, only to find that his previous owners had been in touch and took him back.  Then we heard through a friend about a Maltese litter (2 boys and 1 girl) and last night we went to see them...I fell in love with the little girl!  She seemed to really bond with me and is very licky :)  Also, I think Albi would get along better with a girl rather than a boy.

She spent her first night here last night and has been doing so well!  Albi is a little bit jealous but we've been sure to give him lots of attention so he doesn't feel sad.  I'm sure they'll be best friends in no time!  Another fun fact about Sisina...she was born on November 2nd, a day before my birthday!  Aww!  I can't wait for my family to meet her.  They're coming over later and I just know they will love her.  

A few people have asked why we chose the name Sisina.  It was actually my nonna (grandmother)'s name on my dad's side.  Her full name was Tomasina but she went by Sisina and she didn't like her name!  Neither did my dad really, but I always did!  I think it's a beautiful name!  Apparently it means "twin".  We're calling our little puppy Sina for short and she already seems to react to it!

I'll post more pictures later today when I get a chance.

Lots of love!
xoxo

  13. Awww that's lovely! I'm sure Albi will love having her around to play with (once he gets over the wee bit of sulking they all do when a new family member arrives!).
    Really pleased for you. Lou.

  16. Oh my gosh she is SO adorable, look how small she is! That's it, I'm going to start pestering my boyfriend to let me have a puppy! I'm sure she and Albi are going to be the best of friends, and he's going to have someone to keep him company when you guys pop out somewhere. xo
