Henry and Cricket
Surely those of you with older children will laugh at me for saying this, but they really do grow up so quickly! Henry is just three years old, but he amazes us with the "big" things that he does and says. This morning for example, I was down the hall with Jonah, and Henry decided he was ready for breakfast. So he grabbed out a bowl, filled it with cereal and milk and sat down to eat. I was so impressed! He didn't even spill the milk--quite a feat for a three year old! Then when I joined him at the table, he put down his spoon, folded his hands, and said, "Mommy, we need to pray!" What a sweetheart, huh?
It is so fun to watch Henry with Cricket (the new kitten). First thing in the morning (and then about 8 more times during the day!) Henry runs out to check on her food. He wants to make sure he takes good care of her. He also changes her water about 8 times a day, just to make sure it's clean. She's such a mellow kitten that she endures all the 'loving' that both my kids give her. Such a very fun pet!
