Cameron Seven Months

Cameron turned seven months old last Monday. I was looking at his monthly stickers and it made me a little sad to realize that he only has a few left and that these months of babyhood before he turns one are going to fly by. I already have ideas for his first birthday but I'm trying not to think about that too much...

While wobbly, he can sit up for short periods before toppling over. He has definitely found his feet and chews on them constantly. He now has two teeth and is sure to try to put anything and everything into his mouth to test them out. He has started eating some solids, a mixture of purees and baby led weaning. Basically if you're eating he wants to be too, although Momma's milk is still his favorite. 

This kid loves to laugh and one of his favorite games is to grab your face and push it every which way. It's apparently the funniest thing ever. Now if only we could get to sleep longer than 2 hour stretches at night again...

Powder and Domino

We are surrendering our almost 12 year old cats today. For the last five years they have lived in our spare bedroom since one has horrible anxiety. Now that we have Cameron, that room is becoming his bedroom. We've tried several times to find a home for them with no luck. So to the shelter they go.

I know that they deserve more attention and care than what we have given them, but that doesn't mean I don't feel horrible about it. My grad school roommates adopted them when they were six weeks and eight weeks old and they've been with me ever since. They moved from IN to PA and back to IN. I'm terrified that they won't be adopted and will live the rest of their lives in a tiny cage. I'm upset that they're leaving the only home they've known and are going to be so scared and confused.Alan thinks I'm being ridiculous but I'm entitled to feel how I feel and my feelings are valid. Right now I feel like crap.
