The Bedraggled......

We've been home five days now, and I don't know who is more bedraggled--me, Bella, or Jake the cat? LOL

Nole's saving grace is that he is a cutie patootie!
Seriously, he is a very busy little guy. But, oh so loveable! Except to poor Jake!

I think Nole thinks that the cat is a toy and that when you pull his tail, you get the coolest "meooooow" (emphasis on OW") sound.But the dumb cat, keeps sitting by Nole and following him around. He is certainly a glutton for punishment. Or, it could be that any attention is better than none!

Bella is slowly adjusting to this little "bother" (ok, brother). She still gathers up her most valued possessions and keeps an eye on them very closely.


Bella and Nole have played together a bit--but I have to be there to run interference. Nole doesn't realize that Bella outweighs him two to one and that she is being very patient with his pushing, pulling, and stealing her things. Soon, her patience will give way, hmmmmm? Note the space she has placed between them....smart girl!



Praying that they develop a close relationship and that Nole slows down a bit....or I might just wear out! :)

  2. I sure agree with that boys comment! They are both just adorable and sounds like they have a good share of normal sibling behavior down pat! :o)

  5. I think that Amy Lucas is the one that said that boys with Ds are very active.....well, I just wanted to let you and Amy know that I have one little GIRL with Ds that is very active....so, so, very active. So I will put you on my prayer list to help you keep up with your busy little guy. The pictures are great and I love the girls boots!!!!

  7. What a funny post!! Like the others, I love the one of Bella with her possessions! I also love the one of them watching TV sitting so far apart! LOL

    Poor Jake the Cat, maybe Nole should try to give him some diet cat food. It worked for Bella...!
