It finally happened. The moment I’ve been waiting for almost ten months. Well, today I realized it was more than that. It was one of those once in a lifetime kind of moments.
Today I met my little person. Carter Joseph Schmidt. I didn’t think it was possible to love something so little so much.
Ooooh! So exciting to get a new family member! I can feel the excitement through the video! I absolutely love this. I’m very happy for you!
Yay! I love that you felt the excitement! That was the idea, and is the idea as part of sharing my perspective on joy, from the ground up with the world. Please come back and visit me again soon!
I will! Thank you for sharing your experiences!
It brought tears to our mummy’s eyes.
Happy tears, I hope. 😉 Same here – and I thought those hormone things were supposed to calm down after the baby came, but she’s been crying more tears of joy now than before! 🙂
the moment of truth ) so cute, both of them, and it seems like wiley is in awe of his new little brother and cannot wait for him to throw the ball for him to catch. congrats ) beth
I loved it. Wiley was just so awesome! I remember when we brought Linus home as a puppy and my sons were 3 and 7! It was the reverse. We were teaching our sons to be gentle with a puppy! Where did the 14 years go? Linus is my old boy now and there us more love than I could describe. Thx for sharing Alesia and Linus
It was indeed a moment of truth. Apparently my parents thought of this as some sort of test…I’m fighting the urge to not take this personally since (obviously) I am doing just fine. He smells so good. 🙂
Lots of love,
unfortunately the plugin kept crashing 😦
Bummer! Any luck now? It’s worth seeing. 🙂
Yep, I’ve seen it now thanks Wiley
Wiley how beautifully gentle you are with Carter, even though you were excited too, I could see your love for your little brother already. Yay, to an extended Schmidt household! Enjoy the family and continue to do what you do best – give love and joy,
Hello dear friend. Yeah, I had all kinds of emotions running through my heart in those moments. If you listen really closely you can hear my tail wagging – it was going a mile a minute. I will definitely take your words to heart, dear one.
Lots of love,
Wyles, all that practice paid off! The love for every member of your family really comes thru. I could hear your tail wagging in the background! This must be so exciting – I wonder what Carter makes of it all… Your Dad calls you Wyles, too! 🙂 Give your Dad and Mom and yourself a big snuggling, snuffling hug from us. HuntMode Family
I guess “they” say practice makes perfect. I’m not a believer in that – nobody’s perfect – but I do think it at least helps when you have an end goal in mind. For my mom the day she went into labor, the end goal was to meet Carter. What a beautiful way to keep perspective in what we do. I was sure to give mom and dad all kinds of snuggles from the HuntMode family.
Lots of love (and the same to you!),
We accept your love and I can feel your snuggles from here, Wyles! Love the HuntModes (giggle – first time I think I’ve used the plural HuntModes!)
I like the plural HuntModes! It works. So I’ll dish it right back at you! 🙂
Wiley – what a lovely greeting you gave Carter. I’m so proud of you plus I’m so glad that you didn’t get too excited and bark at him! I think I even saw Carter wave at you?? Thank you so much for sharing.
Oh goodness no – I am not a barker, unless there are animals on television. Then I must protect my house from them (obviously). Instead of barking, I simply wanted to give him some kisses and make sure he knows he is loved. I think you’re right about the wave – that beautiful little hand…well, it warms my heart to think about.
Lots of love,
Wiley, you did GREAT! I like how you got right in there and tasted him and sniffed him. Is he as delicious as we thought he’d be?? He’s a beauty – and the luckiest little brother ever!
Love and licks,
Great news! He is even more delicious than I thought he’d be! I try not to give him too many kisses though, since his little baby skin is so sensitive. I’ve got to suffer for the greater good on this one. 😉
Lots of love,
How beautiful. 🙂
Oh Wiley, that was so beautiful!! I can see many, many happy years ahead for you and Carter 🙂
That’s good, because happy tears are the only kind of tears allowed around here these days. 🙂
The start of something beautiful – one dog and his boy!
Aw…reading this touched my little doggie heart. 🙂
Oh Wiley, I know you will wuvwuvwuv and take good care of your little person! Woooooowoooooooo!
I have been taking very good care of him…in fact, I think I will blog about that tonight. 😉
Congratulations to Wiley and the Schmidt family! A wonderful video of a wonderful moment. Thank you for sharing this with us.
Thank YOU for letting me share it with you. I love seeing new paw prints on my pages. Please come back and visit me again soon!
well done Wiley
I could hear your tail wagging Wiley! Happy Day all around! All kinds of new adventures ahead!!
I hoped the world would catch that tail wagging sound! My tail was wagging a mile a minute that day, all with enthusiasm and excitement over what’s to come!
Congratulations! How exciting! I’m sure you two will have lots of fun together 😀
I know we will…now I just have to wait for him to be able to run. That should be soon, right? 😉
This is awesome “big” brother! You did it so well, Carter will always remember you. Congratulations to your mum and dad . Licks and kisses to you all
Aw, thank you for everything you said here. You have a way of warming my heart. 😉
This just made me cry! What a GOOD BOY Wiley is!!!! Soooo adorable!!!! ❤
I’m never happy to make someone cry unless they’re tears of joy. Were they tears of joy? I sure hope so. 😉
Oh my goodness…seeing you place your head as close as you could to his nose and all the kisses…you are such a sweet sweet boy…and hearing your tail wag against the baby blanket…oh the joy!!!! You are so in love…your family is so blessed!!!! Mwah!!!!
I had hoped people could hear my tail wagging in the background of the video. It was going a mile a minute, and it says even more than the rest of the video. A dog’s tail never lies, as you know. 😉 Thank you for all of your kind words, and for all the encouragement – you were right – this is such a fabulous journey for a doggie to take!
