I am still changing, growing and learning to be myself.
Just a little diary entry from a little moment Momma and I shared this morning.
I am laying with Momma and I let her wipe eye boogies out of my eye and didn't flinch, then I woke up from a nap and rubbed my head into her hand for a quick pet before I fell back to sleep.
What a difference from when I first got to my home. I didnt want to be touched at all, let alone snuggle, demand to be petted and let someone touch my face. All in a span of 10 minutes no less!
I am not 100% yet, but being able to track my progress in this diary is really helpful.
One area I still need to get comfortable is with Daddy and other men. We're trying to have me lay on the couch with Daddy more or having Daddy carry me on walks when I get tired rather than Momma so I can keep remembering that Daddy only wants to help me. He's not mean because he has a deep voice.
I am the keeper of secrets so I dont tell Momma and Daddy why I am scared. Just yesterday though I was asleep with Daddy on the couch while he was watching TV and I pushed my head into his hand to be pet. This is the first time I have done that. :)
Progress still happens.

Yes! and things can only get better, right? We are so very proud of you. You may have heard this before, but it can help a little to have your dad feed you and give you treats instead of your mom whenever possible (I know dads work a lot). Keep the spirit!
That's a great tip Shiloh. We do try to do that and I have been a lot better. Still tough getting me to go to my Daddy if he doesnt have a treat but I take them from him really nice now and I dont run away after anymore. :)
Kiki- you've come a long ways Baby! So proud of you....
Yes, you have come a long way! Wonderful progress! Continue to let your Dad be close - remember he really only wants to help you!
Big hugs...and great progress fur sure!
small steps and everything will be good in the world
