Pupdate and a Book Challenge

I realized last week that I've been neglecting Tallulah in the blogosphere.  Not in real life.  In real life she gets nearly constant attention. Anyway!  Baby girl turns 1 at the end of this month, and I wish I had done a better job documenting her first year.

Tallulah tapped out at about 60 pounds, and while I whine about her not being as big as I wanted, she's really the perfect size.  Big enough to snuggle like a champ, but small enough that she fits in most of the places I need her to be (including under my head board...).

She sleeps like a champ, and I finally figured out what she'll eat, so that's nice. Her chewing of inappropriate things is still going strong, but she loves her crate and is pretty happy to hang out in there.  I'm enrolling her in shock collar training later in the month, in an attempt to teach her to come. Her favorite thing to do is stay just out of reach, taunting me and slowly draining me of my will to live.  Can't wait for that to end.

Overall, she's a joy. Even when she's being a little booger, she's often very funny and always damn cute.  She's been such a trooper with all the traveling we've done this summer and has been so adaptable to all the changes. I'm excited to see what her second year brings!

And now for something completely different!  I'm joining Kristen for her literary challenge.  Below is my list of ten books that I'll be reading -

YA book // I'll Give You the Sun, by Jandy Nelson
Non-US author // Last Letter from Your Lover, by Jojo Moyes
Recommended book // Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up, by Marie Kondo (recommended by Estee, essiebutton on youtube)
Book that's been on my list for 1+ year // Farewell to Arms, by Ernest Hemingway
Book with a kickass female character // It Was Me All Along, by Andie Mitchell (the memoir that one of my favorite food bloggers published)
Book that's been adapted for the screen // Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince, by JK Rowling (sorry not sorry, Mom)
Book written by a celeb // Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me, by Mindy Kaling
Book with a one word title // Beloved, Toni Morrison
Suspenseful book // Eyes on You, Kate White
A summer related book // One Summer, byBill Bryson

And that's that!  Mindy Kaling and Beloved are up first, can't wait!
