If you've been reading awhile, you know that we have a cat, Cyrus. Before Ting Ting joined our family, I wondered if we would be able to handle a baby, given that we really couldn't handle the cat.
Cyrus does still seem to be under the impression he owns the joint.
But I have to say he deserves to sit in Ting Ting's chair from time to time -- what a great cat.
He lets Ting Ting give him rides in the wagon, even though it bores him.
He sits patiently at her kitchen table and waits for her to cook his meal.
He checked out the toys Santa left to make sure they were safe before Ting Ting woke up.
Sometimes Ting Ting and I play with her barrettes and hair ties. We fix the doll's hair and Ting Ting fixes my hair. Then she always looks for Cyrus.
And he's a good sport -- he proudly wears a barrette even though yellow really isn't his color.
And he patiently submits to hugs.
Lots and lots of hugs. Is it any wonder he was at the top of the list of the the things that made Ting Ting thankful in the last year?
