Uninvited Guest and a "Big" Girl
This is who I found on our porch in the middle of the afternoon yesterday. And he really didn't care that I was there too and I could not scare him away. He just sat there staring at me like, "Yeah, whatchya gonna do?" Eventually he meandered off on his own. He is a freqent visitor at night and Dave is usuallly able to scare him off, but I have never seen him during the day and apparently I am not threatening to him. Fortunately, he always leaves the outdoor cats alone.
And little miss Sylvia is getting so big that she able to enjoy her play center in little spurts here and there. She has more and more stomach muscle control and last Friday morning I was able to have her sit on her own for about a minute before she finally flopped over. Her little arms are kind of short yet, so she can't reach much on the play center, but she enjoys being up higher and looking at everything from this new angle. She is growing so fast!
We live in the country and have a little zoo: Three indoor cats (Audrey, Edgar, and Orange), too many outdoor cats, and our little parrot lovebird named Duncan. Our daughter, Sylvia, was born in October 2008; our second daughter, Veda, was born in January 2010; and our third daughter, Guinevere "Evvie," was born November 2011.
