Then we remembered that we have a foster baby. Michonne is doing great! She had been very sick but now she seems mostly in recovery. She is a little delayed as far as motor skills but we think she is coming along. At about 10 weeks old she is late in learning to navigate stairs. She is at the 7 - 8 week old point of sitting on the landing and watching any of us well-schooled stair navigators come and go.
Michonne got to hang out with some of our cousins from North Carolina. A nice group they are! She spent a lot of time with cousin Kerry who seems to have a knack for making friends with cats. Dogs, too, since I think he's pretty groovy.
Michonne will soon be on the fast track to health. As soon as the vet gives us the A-OK she will get to be vaccinated and spayed. As soon as all of that is done she can find a new home.
She's the best baby. She makes uncomfortable days in to happy days. We'll be sad when she goes even though she'll need her own space and we'll need space for new babies who need to grow.
