In Memory of Skye

Today we said farewell to our sweet furbaby, Skye.
She had gotten seriously ill in November and I don't think she truly ever bounced back. Last night she refused a can of tuna and just stared weakly at her water. This morning I found her barely able to move next to her litter box and we knew it was her time.
John adopted Skye while we were dating. She came to us in 2003 as Miss. Molly. We found her on Petfinder and John had to request a special meeting.
She was insanely shy at first, but it was hard not to love her. One look at those intense blue eyes and that fluffy cloud of white fur and John knew her name had to be Skye.
She for sure was John's girl. They had a super special connection and she never loved another human so much, until Munch was born and she warmed quickly up to him.

She was always happy to visit company and sit down for a chat.
She loved being pet and wasn't afraid to let you know by giving out love nips.

She probably would have preferred to be the only furbaby and never quite warmed up to Kaiser and Joplin. She did tolerate Gandalf though and at times her relationship with The Old Bear resembled an old married couple.
I never met a single person that didn't live her. She had some crazy quirks, but on the whole was an amazing, sweet and beautiful girl. We will miss her terribly.

Nox believes she has crossed the rainbow bridge and found a good beach to play on with plenty of fish to catch. I hope that's true.

One is Fun

Saturday Morning our Happy turned ONE!
He woke us up at 3am sharp. He was sick and miserable, but after a few hours of snuggling brightened up a little. 

We didn't get to do the amazing weekend we had planned, but we did get to open presents. 
Which was insanely exciting.

AND we got to have cupcakes. 
Also, super SUPER exciting.

Happy at one is a pretty amazing guy. 

He is super focused on learning to walk. 
He coasts easily all over the place, stands on his own like nothing and even manages a few small steps before crashing. He loves holding hands though, because then he can really move. 

He is SUPER into music. Doesn't matter what really. If it's got a beat he'll dance to it. 

He loves LOVES animals. Our personal, at home zoo cracks him up and delights him. He also loves watching animal videos. Those are pretty much the best things ever. 

He likes to wave, salute and point and everything. He's working on a heart stealing trick of blowing kisses too. 

He likes to talk to and watch strangers, but isn't all about them touching him. Lately, you really have to be the right person at the right time to get holding rights. 

Through this whole year it has been so delightful to have such a joy filled baby. From day one he has been quick to smile. He almost always has a laugh for you, even when he's just gotten tackled by his brothers. 

We all adore this sweet boy and are looking forward to seeing his journey from babyhood to toddler.

Scrappy Sunday: 3 Loves

I have been working on getting pictures organized for Happy's baby album this past week. Most of the book will be PL style which so far is working beautifully. However, there are always those stray pictures that just have to be in there, but can't really go on a PL spread all by their lonesome.

This is one of my favorite pictures and one of the very few of Happy and my sister (and my niece). It was a lucky snap with my phone and I'm so glad I captured it. 
Created using: Piccadilly collaboration by Designers for Pixels and Co and Geocaching template by 2Paws Designs.

I'm loving the flow I have right now with Happy's book and hope I can go back and finish up Munch and Nox's books in the same style.

Eleven Months

Just one more month till our Happy little ginger turns ONE year old. 

Those top two teeth have come in, but he's still chewing everything. 

He thinks wishes make for the perfect snack. His brothers find this HILARIOUS. 

Happy is trying to go out of our 6-9 month clothes and onto our 9-12...although the pants are still insanely long and loose. 

Mama is pretty sure that walking is coming VERY soon. Happy is certainly thinking long and hard about it.

Right now Happy only gives very rare kisses, but when he's sleepy he will grab your face and pull it close to his and just smile. 
And my heart swells.

Ten Months of Happy

Our little man turned ten months old on Monday. 
This month our little guy is in to EVERYTHING and loves tearing into the book shelves and toys like a hurricane. 
He's still working hard on those top two teeth and is loving trying new foods. 
He is all about Daddy at the moment. His whole world lights up when Daddy comes into the room. 
He recently learned how to wave. Which is a pretty fantastic trick if you ask me.
