High Five

Today is Noodle Battlecat Bear's Fifth Birthday. I know he probably won't read this post, but I'm hoping the positive energy created by typing kind words will fill his cat naps with sweet and precious dreams.

Noodle has had a rough year... if such a thing is possible for a beloved indoor cat. Exactly a year ago, morning sickness hit me with a vengence. I was too sick to play with him. Then I became too fat to play with him and then I brought home a tiny little thing that cried a lot, hurt his ears and monopolized the majority of my time. It was a rough transition for Big Noods, but he has made his peace and even curls up with me at night again... despite his irritation at the nighttime feedings.
Noodle believes all things baby belong to him. I even need to ask permission for River to borrow the crib or car seat. I love, love, love him. He was truly our first step in becoming a family and great baby practice. Happy Birthday Noodle! Thank you for pushing through the tough times.

I am fascinated with the whole animal and baby mix. Poor Battlecat Bear. Someday, he will hopefully be grateful for his good friend, River.

Happy Birthday Noodle!!!

Nikki says hi... well, not really, he is hiding somewhere waiting for all the kids to go to bed so he can come out and just roam around the house and not worry about being caught somewhere with no exit.

I LOVE that the cat is in the car seat!
