Opie Simon James!
What??? Three names? Well, your distracted blogist here wrote the names down on her handy dandy lined pad, cut them apart, tossed them all together and stuck in her hand to pick.
Unfortunately, this was a post-it note pad and there was an edge of stickum on one of the strips. Three of the names stuck together. So, since we do bonafide random drawings here, all three names win! (OK, I'll be honest, I read James first, but somehow he seems more like an Opie to me, so I put that first, and liked the sound of the three names in this order best. Sorry, Alexa!)
So, metzdarling and Judy (Opie), Milo & Alfie and Webbthistle (Simon), and Alexa (James) our boy is named for you.
On the kitten front:
OK, on the cat front first... yesterday, Mama Lucia came out from under the bed to watch me prepare her food and stayed out while I put it down! And ate in front of me! And today she moved forward toward the bowl while I was putting it down on the floor. Happy days! We are making progress, bit by bit!
And now, more somewhat blurry cell phone pics of the babies. I promise to try to remember to take down the camera tomorrow. Really!
