The Sound and the Nerdery

I was fairly good at recording Beauty’s every move and word and discovery, but less so with Kitten.  This is life.  We do have plenty of photos of her, so that’s something. Kitten is more cheerful than Beauty was at … Continue reading

Scent

I smell of blood and baby and breastmilk: earthy and powdery with hints of caramel. That sentence formed itself in my mind when Kitten (Kitten and its variants have been displacing Snuggle) was a few days old, and is still … Continue reading

Little Face

The other day Beauty climbed onto my bed in the morning after she’d eaten her peanut butter.  (She’s *supposed* to eat her peanut butter and then play quietly for a while to let me sleep longer.  Nowadays she pretty much … Continue reading
