On January 9th we celebrated three wonderful years with my handsome little evil one Zumi. Here are a few pictures. Enjoy! (sorry for the poor picture quality)
i know the stacked pictures aren't wonderful, he wanted to chase the cat, and well, mom was taking pictures lol.
On a bit of a sidenote, I am now in my third trimester and Zumi is loving all the new stuff! all the strollers, crib, CLOTHES!!!! and oh he did enjoy snuggling the Boppy pillow. He loves to snuggle up to my tummy at night, and if the baby is very active he watches my tummy, sometimes with his head tilted at it, and/or he will lay his head on my tummy. He seems to know there is something different, but is not upset with it at all. i let him check everything out, and he doesn't mind at all. though he is a bit of a pain when i'm trying to put things together. so nosy!
I have never had an issue with him and children of any age yet. My sister brings her small children over all the time. He is very careful around her younger baby (one year old, in the picture above), and often gives her a little lick in passing, and of course he loves to do the B500 with the 6 year old. Its quite comical!
The only thing i am not sure of right now is his anxiety when a baby cries. We had put the little baby down for a nap, but she was having a cranky day and was crying, Zumi was running to the door and to us, back and forth, just absolutely frantic. After a bit of her just not settling down we decided to give it up for now and took her out of her room, Zumi was standing on hind legs to sniff her, his hackles were raised, his tail down and was shaking a bit until we set the baby down to him to "inspect" and make sure she was ok, and he immediately calmed down, but would not leave her side! Does anyone know if this is normal? He was whimpering, and sneezing, pacing, very upset.
