The physical embodiment of Dan's descent from social normalcy
Mami, ¿Por qué soy tan guapo?

I just realized the new season of It's Always Sunny starts two days after my Lasik surgery. By god, I'd better be able to see by then.

It's so funny seeing Kaylee grow and learn day by day. When we first brought her home, she was more or less helpless — she was far too small to get on or off the couch, and even single stairs were impassable (she'd just stand there, hopping an inch off the ground and whining, asking to be let up). She never barked, and when we took her in the front yard to go pee, she never strayed farther than a few feet from us.

She has now been home for about a week, and we've seen her discover her barking abilities (mostly by aping the other dogs when they bark at a cat or neighbor), and has gotten much more confident in exploring the yard. We now have to keep her on a leash when we take her outside, because she will happily run off into the street or neighbor's yard, and hasn't yet learned to come when called.

But most remarkable for me has been seeing her growing ability with stairs. We got her a set of doggie steps to let her get up and down from the couch, and though at first she had no idea what to do with them, she figured out how to get up the steps within a few minutes, and figured out the descent by the end of the day. She now climbs up and down them with ease, and that victory has apparently encouraged her efforts with the full-size stairs.

She's not any bigger than she was a week ago, but a few days ago she figured out how to make it up the first of the two stairs on the front porch that have been her daily obstacle. This morning she made it up both steps, and, flush from her recent discovery, a few hours later she climbed up the entire staircase from the basement, all on her own. This girl is smart, and it's so cute to see her learning new things.

It's not as momentous as a baby announcement or anything (don't expect that anytime soon :), but I just wanted to let you all know that Naomi and I just got a new puppy, a miniature dachshund that we've named Kaylee :) As you might expect, there are plenty of pictures.

We'd been talking about getting another pet for a while, considering sugar gliders etc, but we decided that a non-exotic animal would make more sense. We saw Kaylee at Puppy Zone and fell in love. We went home and discussed things for a few hours and decided it was the right decision, so we went back and brought our newest family member home.

She's got the perfect personality — she loves to run around and play with toys etc, but she also loves to be held and as soon as you pick her up she calms right down and will lay in your arms for hours. We're so happy with her, and hope you all get to meet her sometime soon :)

Update: We had initially chosen the name Panini for her, but after saying it a bunch of times we realized it started to get a little tiresome, so we went with our second choice, Kaylee. As you might have guessed, that one was my suggestion :)

Hey Internet, I know you don't care about my relationship, but today marks the six-month anniversary of me becoming the happiest I've ever been, and I think that's pretty great.

I love the crinkling sound of caramel hardening in an array of ramekins. http://yfrog.com/06vkvmj
