Back to normal here

Things are sort of returning back to normal here... Ollie is back to blurpy-sitting. And, he's doing almost TOO good a job. Last night, in the middle of the night, Daddy woke Mommy up and said "Look in the Co-Sleeper"* and Mommy woke up out of a sound sleep and there was Ollie lying in the Co-Sleeper RIGHT NEXT TO SOPHIA. And, Ollie knows he is NOT SUPPOSED TO GO IN THE CO-SLEEPER. We get squirted and yelled at when we try to go in there. Ollie knows better but I guess he decided to break the rulz. Well, Mommy quick fast got the blurpy out and then yelled at Ollie and squirted him. And he did stop doing it - for a little while. But, then he kept trying to get back in there, Mommy kept yelling and kept squirting. Finally, everybody went back to sleep. But, then Mommy woke up and looked over and yep, there was Ollie, all curled up and sleeping hard in Sophia's co-sleeper. Do you believe it? He's really bold, isn't he??? According to Ollie, he was just helping blurpy-sit. I don't know, I think he was just being B-A-D. Mommy wishes she had the flashy box near the bed because she says she would have taken a picture of him sleeping in the co-sleeper right beside Sophie before she squirted him and yelled to get out even though he is not supposed to be in there.

*Pawnote: A Co-Sleeper, for those of you kitties with no blurpies around, is a little bed that attaches to the side of the bean bed so blurpies can be close by when they're sleeping. In Ollie's defense, I do have to say, it looks ALOT like a kitty bed. But, still...

Tails Tuesday

See how our tails curl up differently here? Mr. Chen's makes a round hook like shape and Ollie's has a little bend in it. We are still recovering from the sadness of last week. We are all holding each other a little tighter still and being a little extra loving. Hope everykitty is doing the same...

Goodbye Sweet Violette Angel

Goodbye darling Angel. You touched all of our lives in ways you will never know... We send you and your family all of our love and all our deepest comfort and support today.

We love you, Violette Noelle!

The Cord

We are connected,
My child and I, by
An invisible cord
Not seen by the eye.

It's not like the cord
That connects us 'til birth
This cord can't been seen
By any on Earth.

This cord does it's work
Right from the start.
It binds us together
Attached to my heart.

I know that it's there
Though no one can see
The invisible cord
From my child to me.

The strength of this cord
Is hard to describe.
It can't be destroyed
It can't be denied.

It's stronger than any cord
Man could create
It withstands the test
Can hold any weight.

And though you are gone,
Though you're not here with me,
The cord is still there
But no one can see.

It pulls at my heart
I am bruised...I am sore,
But this cord is my lifeline
As never before.

I am thankful that God
Connects us this way
A mother and child
Death can't take it away!

What can we do...

We are still wanting to help. We are still wanting them to know how much they are in our hearts. We have sent our fabric square to help wrap Sweet Sprout in love, we have light a candle and said a prayer, we have donated to help pay medical expenses, we have sent a card, we have emailed Monty and his family, we have changed our blog violet, we will wear Violet tomorrow, we are hugging each other extra tight, we will join our friends from all around the world tomorrow to have a moment of silence at 9am to mark the beginning of the services for Sprout. Our eyes have leaked and leaked and leaked some more. What else can we do? There must be more....

Most Awful News

This morning we learned the most horrible news... Our dear close friend, Monty Q, has had a terrible tragedy in his house. His beautiful baby sister, Violette (aka Sprout), has been taken from his family way too soon. It is with so much sadness in our hearts and so much grief that we send our deepest sympathies to Monty, MomBean Tracey, and the entire family. We can only say that Heaven is a sweeter place now for having dear Sprout there so early. Mommy's eyes cannot stop leaking and she might not stop hugging or holding Sophie all week. Please stop by and send Monty and MomBean and the whole family your love. They will need it this week and beyond...

A few weekends ago Mommy and Daddy took the blurpy girl to go see some ducks. Um, guess it didn't occur to them that we might want to go, too. Oh well...

Anyway, look what else they saw besides ducks though - an EGRET! Isn't that cool? We've never seen an egret before. Well, we've never seen ducks before either for that matter.

By the way, we realize that the title of our last post might have seemed offensive. We apologize to any kitty who is also on a diet, like us. We thought the double entendre was witty. We really are sorry if anyone felt bad about it or got upset.

Hope everykitty has a super weekend!
