She turned four over 3 weeks ago.
I adore her more each day. Yesterday on the way into the grocery store I scooped her up and asked her to please stop growing. How did she go from a newborn to this funny, inquisitive, little being with her very own firm, distinct personality? A girl that has her mind set in STONE every day about what she is or isn't wearing that day. A girl that can upset her 8 year sister by chasing her around the house & shouting, "Ayla loves avocado". A girl that will position her chair exactly in my way at supper time just to peel the onions & crack the eggs for me. Love her. She is just what we needed four years ago and every day since.
And yes, that stupid cat was pregnant again. She has since had 5 more kittens. That brings our grand total to 13 kittens since spring!! Luckily some friends of ours want some barn cats and have asked for all 5 of them when they are weaned.
