Cat Scratch Fever

I'm going to let you in on a little family secret. It might be hard for you to believe that it's true. But, I assure you, it is 100% accurate. This is my Daddy and he and I share something that no-one else in the family does. The secret is...
are not
We never have been. The cats and dogs in our life have always been closer to My Mom or My Brother. The animals we have had all seem to know...."I don't think Jana or Daddy are crazy about us." That is what makes these pictures
Apparently that memo has'nt been recieved by the cats in this house. And when Daddy sits down in the evening to read, they come to him like the pied-piper. They just sit there with him and watch him read and they don't get up until he does. And the truth is....I laugh. I really laugh. I was laughing when I took the pictures.I'm laughing right now. Only because I know how I feel when the cats come surround me like that. I feel like....ewww...gross....go somewhere else!
But, even as I type this I am sitting on my bed and there are not one, not two but, three....yes, three cats sitting on my bed just staring me down. I'll admit that even six months ago, that wouldn't have happened.Maybe the tides are beginning to change.
Maybe we ARE becoming pet people.
Maybe we are the ones who haven't gotten the memo yet.

For Christmas this year, PopPop gave Baby Girl an inside jumpingplene. So, she just
jumps and jumps and jumps and her hair just looks like it's in a commercial for
shiny baby shampoo.
Look at the bounce. Look at the curls. She has never had a haircut. Never had any
highlights and her hair is big and beautiful.

I absolutely love to watch her use her precious little hand and wipe her hair out of her eyes.
You'll have to bear with me. I am a Grandmother in love.

I believe this is the most beautiful head of hair in the world!

And the back view is stunning. Just stunning.

Should we send her to an acting company for baby hair modeling? Nahhh...we'll just keep her here and enjoy seeing it everyday for ourselves.

What a precious gift she is to all of us. We are in love. We can't help it. Even she was bald we would be.
