About a month ago, Mommee commissioned a friend of hers who is a storybook writer/illustrator to do a portrait of Gus and Waldo for the baby's room. She wanted it to showcase their personalities, and also reflect the story of the pears (one of Mommy's favorite memories of us).
Mommee met Jennifer through her church, and has been excited to see her publish her first children's book called Sir Bumble. It is one of Avonlea's favorite stories. Mommee loves Jennifer's art style, and asked her if she would do a portrait.
Jennifer sent Mommee the final draft tonight, and she could not have been more pleased!! She captured the boys' personalities so beautifully, don't you think?
If you have never heard the pear story, you can follow this link to find it.
Mommee wanted to highlight the boys' love for each other, demonstrated so clearly in the pear story, with the hopes that the human kids would have the same relationship with each other.
If you are interested in a custom portrait, let me know in the comments, and i can get Jennifer's info for you!

Guess what, everybody? I, Waldo, am going to be a big brother AGAIN! Mommee is going to have another hooman kid at the beginning of February.
People have been wondering how I have been doing. Well, to be honest, I am okay. I miss my big brudder a lot. He was my bestest fur-iend in the whole wide world. The only doggeh I got along with, really. I was really mopey for a while after he crossed the Rainbow Bridge. But, I am happy to say that I am doing much better. I am more mellow now, and I don't get worked up quite as often, but I am not sad all the time like I was before.
I am very attached to Mommee now. In fact, when Daddee tries to take me for a walk, I refuse to go down the driveway! Daddee will pull and tug, and I just sit down and refuse to move. Sometimes, Mommee will help out and walk me down the driveway and then "pass me off" to Daddee so we can walk. I love to walk--I just don't like to be away from Mommee.
My little hooman is good. She loves to give me head rubs and pat my shoulders, which I am learning to tolerate. I didn't like her much as a baby--she screeched all the time and hurt my eardrumsicles. But now she is better and doesn't scare me so much. I let her play with my ears, too, which always makes her giggle.
Of course, Mommee humiliated me AGAIN this Christmas by making me wear the fat man's hat. Why do I let her put me through that nonsense? I swear, if it weren't for the amazing chicken treats, I wouldn't bother.
Hope you all are doing well!
