Sammy and Natalie are at a good place right now.
He has finally come to terms with the fact that she is a mobile creature and I am letting them have more contact as I grow more confidant in Sammy to give warning signs if he feels threatened.
She hasn't figured out how to climb onto the couch, so the dog can still go perch up there if he wants some peace. But I think that they entertain eachother. Natalie goes after dog toys, Sammy goes after baby toys, and I just sit back and make sure things don't get too heated.
Natalie can climb up the stairs now, but I have to spot her because it hasn't yet sunk in that if she plops down, she will fall.
In other news, Micah did go with a small group from schurch to clean up some damage from Isaac. He left this afternoon and will be gone through Sunday. I mis him already! But I'm glad he went and hopes that he can have a good experience and help out.
