lola, allergies, and ear infections oh my.

IT'S NOT LOLA SHE'S ALLERGIC TO!!!!! we just heard back from the dr. and brooklyn is not allergic to pet dander OR eggs!!!
translation: we get to keep lola AND feed brooklyn waffles again! you can just imagine what i look like doing my happy dance ;)

as most of you know, my sweet husband got me a puppy for christmas this year (see below)

i know what you're thinking: a baby AND a 7 week old puppy! are you insane?" my answer: probably. but it's TOTALLY worth it! lola is such a love. and while this past month has been a complete whirlwind of crazy dog training, waking up multiple times throughout the night to let her out, (seriously, it's like having a newborn all over again) and trying to teach her the difference between my shoes and her play toys, we have fallen in love with her. she is now a part of our family.

that said, brooklyn has been suffering from a severe case of eczema since we brought lola home... sigh. we recently had b tested thinking it was an allergic reaction to dairy or eggs or something food related - ANYTHING but lola. we have since received the results from her allergy tests and all results came back negative. YAY! how awesome that my sweet little preemie isn't allergic to any foods.

that's the good news. the bad news, she wasn't tested for animal dander... this past monday we brought b in to have her tested for animal dander and eggs. so what have i been doing the past two days? checking my email incessantly of course! i am biting my nails, waiting to hear the results - PRAYING that she is not allergic to lola.

me being me, i am choosing to believe it's something else! i am probably the most optimistic person i know - sometimes to a fault ;) and while i await the results, i am enjoying every minute i have with our sweet christmas puppy.

that is until i have to take b back to the dr. today to have her ears checked out. she has a temp of 102... WHAT THE WHAT?! one of these days we'll have a quite day in the lorenz home!

here is a series of images i took on b's birthday. lola wanted that birthday hat more than anything!!! they are friends - i swear.

"Just looked at Brooklyn's Chocolate Discovery pics... love em! Can't believe the miracle of her has turned 1! Amazing.
So I have to ask because I always love your shots even the indoor one's... What kind of lens do you use for those spontaneous kid, indoor shots? If you don't mind my asking :)"

Oh my goodness this series is soooo great! Lola must meet my Guinness (a fellow chocolate puppy) because he would love to play:)
