The boys adore him and Nick and I also soak in his cuteness, he's wiggled his way right into our hearts and has been a welcome addition. I realize I'm saying all of this and we haven't even had him a month, maybe I'll be signing a different tune once he's grown or as he goes through his "teenage" months. But for now, I'm quite happy with our little guy.
He sleeps quite a bit, much like a newborn does, but he sleeps though all the sounds and shrieks the kids make. He's almost potty trained, we are getting there. And he sleeps in his crate at nighttime and when we're away during the day. However, he's a smart little furball...he managed to unzip the crate door and get out while we were gone yesterday. I imagined the worst as I looked around the house for a pile of doo or a chewed up chair. We looked and saw nothing out of the ordinary, so maybe he wasn't out long or maybe he just knew, I can't be sure.
The amount of growing he's done in just one month is quite astounding. I think he was about 10lbs when we got him, and he's gaining daily. You can see a difference in the pictures below
This morning was his first experience with snow, you'd have thought he was in heaven. He LOVED it. It was fun to watch him and the boys play in it, but cleaning him off afterwords is no fun but still worth it.
Here are LOTS of pictures for your viewing enjoyment!

This picture sums up how much he really loved the snow!
Having a new puppy is great, but having a goldendoodle is even better. :)
