What a day!

Today is Little Elvis' 5 month birthday, and we're all celebrating, even the cats.

Apparently he's super excited about it -- so excited that he doesn't want to sleep. He woke up three times last night in celebration of this big event! Three times! He hasn't done that in a while.

This morning, after the third wake up, Bob asked, "Did he wake up last night?" He apparently didn't even hear us this morning!

Bob was up before the final wake-up and he encountered Slappy, our shy cat, in the hall outside of Little Elvis' bedroom.

Slappy has apparently decided that she wants to be Lassie. She sat outside the door and meowed at Bob plaintively.

I was asleep, but here's how I imagine that scene:

Slappy: Meow! Meow! Meow!

Bob: What is it girl?

Slappy: Meow! Meow!

Bob: Little Elvis has fallen down a well?

Slappy: Meow!

Bob: But there isn't a well in his nursery.

Slappy: Meow! Meow!

Bob: Alright, let's go look.

Bob opens the door and peeks in the crib to find a peacefully sleeping boy. Bob tiptoes out of the room and closes the door.

Bob: Silly Slappy, he's just fine.

End scene.

Little Elvis also proved that he was my dad's grandson this morning. I was trying to feed him and he was fighting me. In an attempt to prove that he was not hungry, he rolled onto his back and grabbed the remote control out of my hand! He didn't change channels, but he also didn't want to give it back.

Needless to say, I turned off the TV and laid him on his back to kick for a while.

Happy 5 month birthday my little rock star!
