I had this brilliant plan to put together a video of Eli's first year and post it on his birthday. I actually got a good start at it, too. But then I got derailed because instead of getting my one year old a reasonable present like some sort of Little People's playset, I went ahead and LOST MY FOOL MIND and got him this:
Yes, it's a puppy. A puppy who is half mastiff and will probably grow to be anywhere from 70 to 150lbs. There's really no way of knowing. Except that he weighed in at 17lbs at his 8 week check up, so we're probably looking at the higher end of the scale.
In summation, they are ADORABLE...
... and I AM INSANE.
