birthday boy

Last year when we got Yoshi, we were told he was a day short of being 7 weeks old. I counted backwards and put his birthday on my phone's calendar. I can't believe that day is already here!!

Happy first birthday to our little guy!

Leaving his mama for the first time!

We kept him in a bedroom until he was big enough to be able to explore on his own. And until his big sister got used to him being around. She was Not Thrilled for a long time, but there was never any bloodshed!

So little!

Having a kitten was a new experience! It had been so long since his older sister was little that we'd forgotten how quickly kittens get into things and how much they love to play.

He loved playing in his "house" and soon destroyed it with his needle-like claws.

We soon learned that he could fall asleep anywhere, in any position....

But he absolutely loved being held. He's so cute that we never minded!

As you can see, he sometimes likes to get rightupclosetoyourface when he sleeps. He especially likes to rub his cheeks on his daddy's prickly chin.

He is curious about e.v.e.r.y.t.h.i.n.g. Sometimes it gets him into trouble...

He shares his sister's love of bags and boxes of any kind.

Speaking of his sister, they get along exist together. He has reached the point that I call "typical pre-teen boy." He likes to annoy his sister just because he can, then manages to look completely innocent when he gets into trouble for it. Just this morning, we had the "I'm not touching you!" scenario.

He likes to surf the internet with his dad. Or he could be keeping an eye on the mouse....

He even prays with us.

Dear Lord, bless that bite of chicken I'm about to attack...

All in all, life would be very quiet and boring without him around!
