Happy birthday to my little sister Maggie! She turns eight today (the same day Mom turns 40). We'll be having some stinky goodness cake tonight. Mom and Dad took the day off for her birthday (or maybe for Mom's) and are giving us extra snuggle time. I'm happy to have my sister. She started life a little rocky and touch and go, but she's a force to reckon with now and always good for a wrassling match or a chase.

This past weekend was an adventure. Mom and Dad were babysitting their friends' two 15-month-old twins so their friends could go to Savannah for their anniversary. There's a boy and a girl (Elliott and Eliza), and they are very sweet. Or so I'm told. I stay upstairs away from them. So does Maggie. Sometimes Huggy Bear will venture through the room they are in, looking for treats and fallen food. He managed some chicken lunch meat, so I guess it was worth the risk. And then there's Josie, who for some odd reason decided to hang out with these two. She would sit in the room, even getting near them. At one point, she even let Elliott "pet" her. (He needs to work on his petting technique.) She was very brave, and I'm mixed between being proud of her and being concerned about her judgement.
Here's Josie hanging out on the DJ cat scratcher. This turned out to be the babies' favorite toy. We ignore it more than we play with it, so at least someone is enjoying it. But Josie decided to sit on it for a little bit, just to make sure they knew who it belonged to.

Here I am first checking out the box to see how I fit.
It seems an OK fit. (Sorry, I didn't realize this one was blurry until just now.)
I had to do a curly Q tail to get in just right.
See ... just right!

Maggie is benefiting from the stack of pillows on the guest bed. She likes to get way up on there and perch and sleep. Who wouldn't like to sleep on a giant stack of pillows? The guest room has become our new hangout. I sleep on a suitcase that needs to be put away (but couldn't during the repairs since it gets stored in the secret storage space we're not supposed to know about, but is off the room we were locked in during the repairs). Josie has been sleeping under the guest bed. I think Huggy Bear is the only one who hasn't migrated to this room. He still hangs out on Mom and Dad's bed.

Here are the four babies a few days ago, on the fourth.
And here they are now, just five days later. You can really see how well their feathers are coming in. I doubt they'll be hanging out in that nest much longer.
