As you know, I've had a birthday, and I've been quietly reflecting on how my life has changed --- and has not changed --- since November 11 when I was adopted. This is something that remains the same: Sunday afternoon naps with my dad. His snoring has a way of lulling me to sleep. It always has and probably always will!

And here is something that has changed. At one time, Tad could jump on the bed to get away from me, and I was too short to follow him.

I'd have to wait until he decided to come down before we could play. But not anymore! Motch had mercy and found a great big step-stool-type-of-thing that helps me get on and off the bed. So in spite of my size, I can keep up with Tad now, and life is so much better!

You really are getting to be a big girl. I think its almost time for you to find a boyfriend...

Lorenza said...

Hi, Petra!
I missed you yesterday!
Glad your mom got you that step-stool! Now you can go up and down as much as you want!
As you know... I am pretty short, so my mom made for me some of those steps and now I have one at every bed and couch in the house!
I loved those videos of you and Tag playing.
We use here the word "gacho" when we want to say mean. So... Tad was gacho being there up on the bed knowing that you could not jump!
Kisses and hugs

I could not imagine not being able to get on the bed. I am glad Motch got your a step stool thingie. If I was there I would let you use me to get up there.

That sure looks like a comfy place to nap. Sometimes I try to nap on top of Mom and she always fusses about me "not being lap-sized," whatever that means.

Yes you are pretty talented jumping up on that bed. Callie was getting really good at running up the stairs with that cast on. Thanks for your lovely comments.. We can't wait till she gets home.. The house is too quiet..

Big Sloppy Kisses

Tadpole said...

Oh how I wish I felt like playing with you now.... In a couple days I'll make my way over and give you a good chase.

As long as you don't bite my tail.

Love the photo of you and your Pop. Isn't that just the best?! All curled up and snoring away the day.

(Scarlett's snoring away on the floor next to me right now. Sometimes it so loud I can't hear myself think.)
