Bad CatBad Cat: 01/11/07

Any regular reader of this site will know that I am a cat person. Caligula, my cat for the last eleven years has her rebellious moments and can nap on anything in any position. Bad Cat, the book version of the My Cat Hates Me website celebrates felines at their worst, their least photogenic, their clumsiest and goofiest moments.

The book has 244 full color photographs, each one with a caption, the cat's name, age and hobby (if any). The photographs were done by amateurs and are often times low quality. Many are staged but it's the captions that make the book so funny. There are enough funny photographs to have me laughing out loud every few pages.

Spelling and Eating:

Sean has been learning how to write and spell some words at school. That daily work plus the exercises we've been doing at home are really paying off. Today Sean proudly showed us his school work where he had written a bunch of words including: cat, web, bug and a few others I can't recall right now. On our refrigerator Sean has been practicing making words and names. He likes to spell out his own name. He has also spelled out "magazine" (with Ian's help), ow, eat, tea and others.

Meanwhile, Harriet's big accomplishment is the eating of solids. She started eating solids at the start of December but since returning home from the holidays she has really made eating solids part of her daily routine. Earlier this week Ian and I set up Sean's old high chair and now Harriet can join us for breakfast and lunch. She goes to bed too early to join us for dinner. For breakfast (after her dawn nursing session) she has rice cereal mixed together with water and some sort of puree. So far her favorites are sweat potatoes, squash, peas and apple sauce. For lunch she has just a few spoonfuls as she's usually full from nursing but she still likes to participate in the meal.
