Yikes, they multiplied overnight

How did this happen to me? Yesterday there were three of those two leggers, and now look - FIVE of them!!!

OK, all of you, let's get this photoshoot done. If I have to go through this everyday for the Momster, you can do it too. Everykid's eyes on the flashy beast NOW!

Oops, looks like the littlest one needs more practice. Brady Bear, pay attention.

Sheesh, Mom - you cut MY head off.

Hey, you over there on the far right, you are the oldest, you should know better than to sleep during phototaking time. Wake up now!

OK, not too bad, let's see if we can get one more good one.

I guess this isn't as easy I as I thought it would be. These are five of the grandkiddos. Brady Bear age 2, Cambrie and Jack (twins) age 4 1/2, Tyler (brother to Brady) age 4, and Kaeleigh (sister to twins)age 7 1/2. Oh, that's me, Ciara in the front and I am 1 1/2. Be sure to take note - you never know when there could be a test.

Woos, Ciara


Gus said...

Surely a cute bunch! You are lucky to have grandbeans around. Me and Teka have to make do with strange children to love on.


Barbara said...

My goodness, that's almost 1 dog per kid! How are you coping with all the two-leggers in your house? Whew! I'd be worn out!

Corbin said...

What a beautiful lookin' bunch!

Sue said...

Gee Ciara, you lost your seat on the couch. That's what you get for hogging it yesterday. We'll bet you have lots of fun playing with all those kiddoes.

Mrs. JP said...

The kiddo in the middle just makes me laugh! He is trying so hard. Isn't it fun to try and make them be still? Was Ciara in charge of biting little toes that tried to get off the couch?
Really good pictures.

Zona said...

Ciara, you look like you're loving every minute of the multiplying grandkiddos!! What an adorable bunch the six of you are!

We enjoyed seeing the photoshoot of you and the 5 grandbeans! Looks like they are going to be a pawful but if you work it right, they can give you lots and lots of massages this summer!

Sagira said...

Ever see that movie Gremlins? Don't give them water they will multiply again! haha...very cute though. :)

scotsmad said...

Two-leggers are just as hard to photograph as four-leggers! Ciara you look great!

XXXOOO Daisy, Kendra & Bella

Uhoh - wonder how many two leggers there'll be tomorrow! The sibes are getting out numbered!

Anonymous said...

OMD Ciara I knows that they is cute and all but they wiggle more than puppys! BOL

woos, Tessa

Siku Marie, White Dog said...

You must get LOTS of attention, Ciara, with all those kidlets around! I bet they are GREAT at cuddling and playing. You all look so cute together...Phantom and Thunder are hiding out and taking a nap somewhere cool, right?

Furkidsmom said...

That's a whole lot of two leggers! We think you'll all need lots of naps to keep up with that cute bunch!!

Lola and also Franklin, too said...

You are so lucky to have such a beautiful assortment of human puppies to play with! I love human puppies, but don't have any of my own. Give yours some extra licks for me, K? They look very lickable!

Thank you for your good wishes for Sarge. For horses, colic is a very common, but also very serious, situation. Their intestines can get all sort of tangled up and they can die from it, so it's quite scary when it happens.

Team Beaglebratz said...

Well at least there iz only a couple more - at least they don't multiply the way that bunniez can - they iz way cuter than bunniez r tu. (And so r u tu Ciara an'it'z obvious tu u no more 'bout lookin'good fer a photoshoot tu)

They sure need some training on what to do during a photoshoot. What a cute bunch, though. But did you realise that they have taken up your space on the sofa?

Tweedles -- that's me said...

Oh my gosh,, all that cuteness must make your heart sing everyday!
They are all adorable!

Lorenza said...

Sure it was an interesting photo session!
I know you love having all of them at home with you!
Take care
Kisses and hugs

Stella said...

Ciara! Where do you get all those cute little beans? I tell my Mom I just want one, just one boy about the age of that middle one. But she says I better find someone in the neighborhood to play with cuz we don't have an extra bed for a bean!

Stella, who is jelly like Frankie!

sprinkles said...

No tests for me please, I'm on summer break! bol

rottrover said...

Ciara, excellent coaching! You're a regular Heidi Klum!

TwoSpecialWires said...

We hear Moma saying, "Someday I'm gonna be taking pictures like that!" We gotta admit, those little two-leggeds are VERY VERY cute! (And you, Ciara, are VERY VERY beautiful!)

Much love
Jake and Fergi

KB said...

Wow, that is the cutest group of bipeds that I've ever seen!!! And, Ciara on top of it all! She taught them how to be a model. Way to go Ciara.

So, now I can visualize your life and I can't imagine how you manage. Five young and cute bipeds and 3 sweet Sibes... Oh my! You are my hero.

Holly and Khady said...

Well, I must say, that as the youngest, you certainly did the best job! But, you ALL look adorable!

Now, did they finally get off your couch so you could have it back?

Khady Lynn

Suka said...

hey Ciara,

What an adorable group of little humans! I bet they are super play pals! I think they did a smashing job posing, with your professional help, of course!

When the oldest fell asleep, you looked like you were ready to doze off too! BOL!

A beautiful family! I am good at numbers so I think I will get an A+ on the test!


p.s. Hope you pups are surviving this humidity.

I am impressed they're all dressed & sitting still. Is there velcro on that couch? Nice job herding them all together like that, Ciara!

Ruger said...

Well, I hope all those hu-kids are good for treats & games!!!? They look like big trouble to me otherwise.
My Mumma says you hopes you all & your Momma have a fun summer with them. I say you should steal their ice-creams.

Hi Ciara I would worry that they might be more every day.

Licks Bobby.

Siku Marie, White Dog said...

As Siku says, Life was SO much easier when it was just me! Thanks for the insight and advice.It totally goes against our sense of fairpaly that Quinn, our oldest boy might not be the Lead Male...I know it is assigning a lot of human emotions to the situation but it is hard to stay objective, especially since Quinn is so Gandhi like.

We know NOTHING of Quinn's past because, of course, he was rescued from animal control on deathrow. He had not been neutered until we adopted him. He has always been timid and gentle (afraid of cameras, totally yielding to the "girls" pushing him out of his food bowl) but had gotten a bit more confident up until YoYoMa's arrival and then Puff's heat.

YoYoMa has only been going blind for the past 6 months or so. In his pre-abuse days, before the breeder's health collapse, he was a show dog with a fair record who had been used for stud service...he too was intact until he came to us.

The boys for the most part ignore each other and like I said this was the 1st real fight, usually it is just the pushing and elbowing out of the way stuff that we experienced with the girls. YoYo does at night sleep across the dog door which essentiall makes him the "gatekeeper" for the others.

I so appreciate the encouragement and your examples that our children are not the worst in the world...the fact that they are not getting along makes me feel like a rotten momma but they are not listening to reason...but oddly, when they totally out of hand they DO listen to Siku's warning growl or her standing between them. All the girls shunned poor YoYo last night to the point that I felt bad for him...he was just being a boy.

I wonder if YoYo just wants to do the bitey-face wrestling that many dog do but Quinn doesn't get it? Pulled out the O'Connell books and are turning to those of you with more experience for guidance and love...thanks for being there!
