A few new tricks

So Gideon has done a few new things to bring in his eleventh month. Two days ago he started giving Mommy and Daddy kisses after we would kiss him. Now of course his kisses are his open slobbery mouth against our cheek but it is priceless and its so nice to see he knows what we are doing. Also he has about 2-3 upper teeth coming in right now--the first one has already broken thru and is not a center tooth but one to the side. And also when we take pictures he closes his eyes, not sure why but it makes for cute pictures!

A New Member to our Household

Well we have decided to get a mouser-in-training otherwise known as a kitten! So last night we took the plunge not really being prepared and adopted a cute calico kitten. Its about three months old. She doesn't have a permanent name so right now I just call her by what she was called at her previous home which was meow meow. Gideon is quite interested in this wild creature that is running all over the house exploring. She will be an outside cat as soon I figure out how you transition a brand new member to your family to outside without her running away. Right now everything is just so new to her and she's scared of us so I want her to get a little comfortable with us first. We need a mouser badly being in the country...and plus its about time we had our first pet! :-)

This Morning on the Porch

I love our mornings here in the mountains...after Gideon has had his breakfast and his bath we go out on the porch where he can explore, crawl and try to jump off the steps. He loves to find leaves and touch everything! It is so nice and cool in the morning and we have a lovely view of the mountains and there are no mosquitoes which is the best part for me...
