This is Bear on the morning of her birth-day :) she got to spend some time with grandpa from out of town, and we had a little gathering of family, kitties, and doggies. Cheeseburgers, cat shaped salmon patties, snacks, and cupcakes and ice cream. She got some lovely gifts and thoroughly enjoyed figuring out how to open them. Used up way too much energy and loved spending time with her close in age cousin and her other relatives. We plan on having another party in a month or so for the rest of our family who couldn't make it.
Bear's learning so much every day, and she's truly becoming a jewel.
