As for the subtopic here, let me tell you, nothing shows exactly where you stand in the order of affection in your child’s eyes quite like the first time you go into her room in the morning, and she gazes up at you from her crib, smiles, and asks “Where’s Boo?”.
But hey, she loves that she can smack that cat as hard as she likes and he loves the attention. I don’t want to speculate how this bodes for the kind of relationships she’ll forge in the future.
Yay, another pregnant Doper! Congratulations! My midwives think that my due date is about a week before I think it is – I am also reasonably certain about the date of conception.
I was just commenting to my husband last night that the cats have no idea how their life is going to change in the next few months. The baby already likes them, though – he kicks when they sit on my lap/belly and purr.
