So before fire place season started we brought her outdoor playpen inside and set it up around the fire place. Soon it will be expanded so that it can protect our hapless Christmas tree (although with the level of determination Sadie is going to bring to the table I'm not sure that anything will save any tree in our house from total destruction). The cats enjoy the fence too, because, in times of extreme Sadie stress they can take refuge in the cat bed on the hearth and try as she might Sadie will not be able to reach them (although she may resort to throwing toys at them).
Tomorrow is the first OB appointment! I'm only 8 weeks and since I didn't go to the doctor with Sadie until closer to 12, because we didn't find out until later, I don't know whether we'll be able to hear a heartbeat yet. I hope we will! If not it's only a few weeks away!
