There are little things about our life now that I would like you to know about when you are older. This is one of those letters that I am writing now in hopes that when you are 18 or 20 you will sit down with a hot cup of coffee and read. This is a little note explaining to you what our life is like now. In 2010. In 17 years this will seem like the stone age to you.
Right now we have 3 cats and 2 dogs.
Jasmine - Our mini kitty. She's 4lbs and full grown. She's solid white with ice blue eyes. She's your favorite one to chase around. (Probably because she doesn't run and hide or hiss when she sees you coming) She lets you pull her tail and bite her stomach.
Lilly - Our Russian blue kitty. She actually looked blue when she was a kitten but now she's more of a soft gray. She was rescued one fall day out of a tree. Her owner had tried to drown her in a pond but she got away. Her will to live was stronger than his will to drown her. She's a survivor. She hates new people and is VERY protective of those she loves. (Which is pretty much just the 3 of us) Lils stays far away from you when you are moving around.
Sasha - Our solid black kitty with white paws. Sasha is a lover. He loves to wrestle with you and he loves to sit next to you as you play. Sasha is friendly with you so you are not as interested in chasing or abusing him. He's your buddy.
Lina & Sophie - Our puggle dogs. (Half beagle, Half pug) They were both rescue dogs. I don't know their history. I do know that they love to lick you to pieces. They love to come right up to you and smother you in slobber. You adore them. You giggle as they lick you and you try your best to get to them as often as possible.
I stay at home with you during the day. You spend the day with me or Granny and Papa Joe. They both adore you and LOVE having you come and visit.
Daddy works as a nurse 3 days a week. He's going back to school this September to advance in his career.
We have just started trying to Eat Clean. By the time you read this Clean Eating with either be something very normal that a lot of people do, or it will be a dumb fad diet from the past. I hope it's the former.
We are about to go on our first beach vacation with you! In 3 weeks we leave for Myrtle Beach in S Carolina. I know that you are going to love it. You are, in every sense of the words, my water baby.
Your favorite time of the day is bath time. You love to splash, drink the water, crawl, dunk your head, and try to stand.
This is your room:
I know you have some pink things in there, and I know it's not decorated yet... I'm working on it.. (I thought you were a GIRL!)
This is your favorite blanket:
This is the living room, where we spend most of our time...
