After scrubbing the carpets, Pete and I went on a run together. About five minutes into it, I started thinking I'd made a huge mistake. I had assumed that since I've been running for the past six weeks and Pete has not, that our abilities would even out. No chance. He's miles faster than me. I'd like to believe it's just the longer legs, but something tells me that the differences in our BMIs and general fitness might have something to do with it.
Needless to say, I ran a bit faster than I normally do. Five minutes toward the end of the run, I started thinking that I need to bring him more often. His presence sure pushes me!
After the run, we went to a birthday party for Pete's cousins' 1-year-old, Ethan. It was a fun time, but we ended up sneaking out early (there are only so many toy trucks and books you can ooh and ahh over). Then Pete's parents came over to our house to see Cosmo. It was Pete's dad's first time meeting him, but his mom had met him the first weekend we got him. It was interesting to hear her response to how much he's grown. Living with Little C, we don't really notice his growth. That got me wondering just how much he's changed. So I grabbed my camera to take a few head shots. Here's a "then" and "now."
Granted, the camera was a lot closer to him this time, so his nose looks all out of proportion...but that's a big difference, no? And it's only about two weeks later!
He's still cute as a button, but his ears are definitely taller and less floppy!

And lest you start thinking he's huge, here he is at my feet. Still just a li'l guy!
By the way, I had a request for an updated picture of the wall in the backyard. Here's Pete's progress so far.
