We had a new addition to our family this last week! No, we didn’t have a secret baby, haha. We bought a pet!
Maybe this doesn’t seem particularly exciting to you, but let me tell you, we’re psyched about it. Greg and I have been married for nearly ten years now, and we’ve never had a pet that whole time – mostly because of the constant moving. The horrible, horrible moving. But we’re here to stay now, and so we have a pet. He’s a parakeet!
We named him Cumulus (nicknamed “Cloudy,” for the children) because the feathers on his belly look like a blue sky with puffy white clouds on it. I should mention we’re calling him a him despite having no clue if that’s true or not. Force of habit, I guess. No girls allowed in this house.
Also, did you know? Cameras are scary.
He’s pretty cute, and he’s starting to warm up to us. Max and Charlie have both managed to get him to sit on their fingers inside his cage as long as they have a millet spray to offer him. (Millet is apparently crack for little birdies.)
Hooray for pets!
