Our kitten nuggets are two weeks old today!
To celebrate, they are becoming more vocal,
more mobile, and more interested
in the world around them.
Their personalities are starting to show themselves too.
All of these things make it more difficult
to create the perfect baby picture though.
But it does make them cuter in person.
They pop up and mew for attention when I'm nearby.
They also straighten their legs to stand
and make hilarious attempts to toddle off
(occasionally getting somewhere in the process).
And so, without further ado...
The two-week-old update
(complete with photos and weights)
Fern is the undisputed drama queen of the litter.
She weighed in this afternoon at 10.8 ounces.
And couldn't wait to run off and tell the rest of the gang
that she was no longer the "chunky monkey" in their midst.
You get extra pictures of Marigold today.
Mostly because she's the extra sleepy muffin head who will sit still for it.
She must know she's gorgeous.
She's also a delicate little thing at 10.6 ounces
(making her the 4th kitten out of 5 in terms of size)
Pay attention to those toes.
They become important on Toesday.
That handsome devil Forrest weighed in at 10.8 ounces today.
He's the kitten most likely to be on the move if you give him half a chance.
That's why Dahlia likes to sit on him.
He's also mastering the "selfie" quite nicely.
Our normally easy-going Violet was not... having... it... with the pictures today.
It probably had something to do with finding out that she is now the
undisputed heavyweight champion of this litter at 11.0 ounces.
She hardly looks a thing over 10.9 ounces.
(In fact, I was and still am shocked that she outgained Fern.
Fern must be all fluff)
Our teeny tiny peanut pirate barely makes the scales move at 10.2 ounces.
But what he lacks in size, he makes up in personality.
He generally is the first one in the box to ask for attention.
(Well, besides his mother)
And he likes kissing on that little fluffy head of his too.
