Happy Birthday Mitzie!

Today, my cat is 1 year old!

Yes, I keep track of my cat's birthday. I have to admit since we brought Brynlee home, poor Mitzie has been a bit neglected.

But I don't love her any less. It's actually the opposite, Mitzie appears to be pretty self sufficient and low maintenance compared to a new baby, which I appreciate! Mitzie has been pretty good around Brynlee. I was afraid Mitzie would try to climb in the crib with Brynlee, but a few shakes of a water bottle have taught her that the crib is not hers.

If anything Mitzie's behavior has gotten better with a new baby home. I think it's because Mitzie's was already phased out by the dog, so she is used to being old news. Either way I'm grateful for it!

I'm slowly but surely adjusting to my new role of Mom, for right now stay at home Mom. For a while I would get frustrated at the fact that I had to just sit and hold the baby instead of doing more productive things ( ie cleaning, laundry, eating, peeing, etc...). I felt like I wasn't getting anything done, but now I'm just taking it for what it's worth.

I mean sitting and holding a cute baby for a while isn't such a bad thing right? I don't necessarily have a long list of accomplishments at the end of the day to show for it, but right now being a Mom is my job and that is what I need to focus on.

Brynlee has her 2nd Dr's appointment and I'm crossing my fingers that she has put on enough weight. Her cheeks look fuller and she has a little double chin now ( it's funny how that type of stuff is only cute on babies!) but she still has little chicken legs and arms. She should be at least back up to 6lbs 13 oz so we'll see!

I'm sure she'll be ok with the weight thing. Charlotte has only gained like 13 lbs since birth and is 15 mo old. She's always been a skinny baby. Some babies are just that way.
