I love Sunday mornings

The house is still tidy from the night before, Mitch is sleeping in, the kitties are eating wet food in the kitchen and I have Isadora all to myself.

Kirby loves Isadora and follows her where ever she goes.

Kirby loves the brush!

On February 15, 2009, in Kitties, by Wendy

Kirby normally HATES being brushed, but he really seems to dig the dish brush I’m using here. Many thanks to Kavita and her mom for giving us this brush which proved to also work on Conan who also disliked many a brush before meeting this style. Conan and Kirby have similar mannerisms and markings. Conan is a bit younger than Kirby, but I wouldn’t be too surprised if we were able to track down their lineage that they’re closely related.

Those strange utterances in the background are Shelly and Izzy playing around.

I put Kirby in the swing and turned it on. I thought he might enjoy it.
I was gently blowing in Isadora’s face, and she was so surprised. The first time I blew in her face, her reaction was hysterical. Mitch grabbed the camera the second time and you can see that the faces she’s making here are pretty funny. Now, she’s totally over it. She’ll kind of half smile, but is more annoyed.

Isadora was cracking up at the faces I was making. I love the sound of her laughter.

Izzy likes to hang out in her high chair while Mitch is getting a bottle ready for her or when I’m cooking dinner. We’ll be introducing her to solid foods in about two weeks. We’re going to start off with Happy Bellies Organic Brown Rice Cereal. When she’s ready for fruits and veggies, I’m expecting that we’ll make her food from scratch using the Beaba Babycook. High goals, yes I know, but now that we have the dishwasher, we should have plenty of time to steam and puree fresh food. Our refrigerator is pretty big too, so we can make big batches and freeze for future use. I’m even thinking about renewing our subscription with Planet Organics, so I can save even more time by having my groceries delivered.

This is one of my favorite photos of Isadora. I took it with the iPhone. I love the lighting and the angle she’s looking.

Wherever Izzy is, Kirby is not far behind. He loves her very much.

We went to my friend’s wedding reception in Atascadero–it was a costume party. Mitch was a pirate, I was a mermaid and Izzy was a lobster. It was pretty hot out so her lobster hat didn’t last long.

Another pretty baby shot.

Happy Halloween! We were going to try to make a brief appearance at Cafe Royale, but it was a very long week for me. I was too tired to go anywhere so we stayed in. I love these PJs. Our neighbor received three sets for her son, Dex, so she gave us a pair. They are size 9 mos! She’s only 5 1/2. She’s baby gigantico.

Shelley and I had a full day of Colma/Daly City shopping yesterday: Party City, Pet Store, Target, JoAnn Fabrics and Crafts, Babies R Us. We stopped along the way for lunch at Fresh Choice. It was a busy day for the little baby, and she konked out while we were in the check out lane at Target.

The kitties haven’t made an appearance in a while…

Murky looking slightly ashamed for wanting to enjoy the baby’s play mat. She knows what a fool Kirby makes of himself when he’s playing on it. She does not want anyone to think she is a fool.

Kirby is trying to master high places. I fear for him because I think he has kitty vertigo–he is always falling over. I’m glad it is only six feet and not six stories tall. He should be able to survive that fall.

Kirby and Izzy on the play mat

She doesn’t sound like she’s interested in sharing, but Kirby doesn’t care.
