Friday Update

Wow! We can't believe it has been a whole week since Joel was born. He has been home for 4 1/2 days and things are going great with me and him. He isn't a bad little guy...but "#2" has certainly taken on a whole new, and disgusting meaning. gag.



I won't make that mistake again...

I mean, yeah, he is cute, but how bright can he be? Check out what all Little Bit's kittens are doing and Joel can't even figure out a litter box. Well, he is a product of my human beans so it is to be expected I suppose.



Bendrix sayz "Yeah, the flash is annoying but, hey man, at least she hasn't dressed you up in some type of costume yet"

Bendrix has been chatting with Joel about how to get out of wearing costumes (Joel doesn't like caps either) and making diaper changing time difficult. Man that kid can pee the distance. Good thing mommy was wearing her glasses! ha ha ha. You can actually hear him fill a poopy diaper from across the room. Nice. Nice.



The changing pad is sooooo comfy. It fits my contours perfectly. No worries gang, it is clean when I lay on it!



Can you believe he actually fit INSIDE the mommy?

Mommy and daddy say they couldn't ask for a better response from me. They are making sure I get my special mommy and then daddy time. My box is being changed and I'm even getting extra treats for good behavior.






I'm not big on sharing, but this sunbeam was big enough for both of us AND I didn't have to share my snuggle.

Thanks all for the awesome welcome to my little brother. Mommy is going to print them on special paper and put them in his scrapbook.

Mommy's incision is kinda hurty (no more than expected) so it is hard to blog right now, but we'll hopefully be getting around to visit my friends next week. Take care all and we'll be seeing you soon! Til then, we hope you've enjoyed these pics of me and Joel bonding.

Jan's Funny Farm said...

Yes, those are terrific pix of you and Joel bonding. And you and the family.

William said...

What great photos, Hendrix! It looks like you're taking good care of your tiny bro. I think you have to give him a bit of time with the litter box situation, though. Maybe you two could have peeing contests! Oh--my mom says maybe not.

A Few Good Cats said...

We are glad to see all the happiness in your pictures. The little guy is going to be all right...

Cheysuli and gemini said...

I am so glad you are doing so well together! What a great thing. I am sure that Bendrix will teach him all sorts of great tricks to play on the big humans! That's one of the great things about kids--get um young and train up right!

Forever Foster said...

You are a model big brother, Hendrix. Our mum took notes (seriously, actual notes, the nerd) on how your mum and dad helped you prepare for Joel's arrival, for future use. It's lovely to see how well you are all settling in together:)

Angel and Kirby said...

You are very sweet to love and share #2.

Reese =^..^= said...

Hendrix, what a good helper you are. That Joel is certainly one little cutie.

LC, Ayla, and Iza said...

Yeah, never check out a blurpie's #2!

They don't manage that that well.

Pablo said...

Dude, you're doing so well! I think I'll live in my hiding spot under the bed when my blurp comes at Christmas.
P.S. Don't forget to give your mum lots of gentle snuggles!

Parker said...

I knew that you would be an awesome big brother! Joel is hust adorable and we couldn't be happier for you and for your family!
Smoochies to you and #2!

The Creek Cats said...

The pic of you and Joel basking in the sunbeams is waaaaay too cute!!! Love it! So glad to hear things are going so well!

Hope your mommy's incision heals soon!

Tracey and Huffle said...

Now that you've bonded, you can spend some quality time teaching him who is boss. Do it now while he's young and impressionable.

I heard that when they get older, they drop food on the floor. Dude, that is gonna rock!

The Island Cats said...

Hendrix, we're glad you and #2 are getting along well! We just can't unnerstand why blurpies can't get the hang of the litterbox thing...

Laila and Minchie said...

OMC! Mr. Hendrix, we are sooooo happy you are being such a good brother to Joel! Those pictures are just the cutest thing we ever did see!!!

Our Mom hopes your Mom starts scrapbooking those pictures right away and doesn't get behind, which is so easy to do.

Sabrina, Sam and Simon said...

Hendrix, seeing those pictures of Joel with you, Mommy and Daddy absolutely made our day! Thanks!
Hugs, purrs and headbutts,
Sabrina, Sam, Simon and Momma Jan
Pee ess ... give Joel a kissy for us!

The Kitty Krew said...

Those are some really great pictures of you and the blurpy. You're very sweet to be such a good watchcat for him and to share the sunbeam. Too bad you have to put up with the stink too. ;) Just have patience!

Purrs and hugs,
The Kitty Krew

Max said...

Dood...just an FYI...if they ask you to babysit, it's not as fun as it sounds. You don't get to actually sit on the baby.

Yeah, I know. What's the point otherwise???

That peeing thing, though, that's an awesome trick. I wish I could pee far enough to squirt a person in the glasses. Heh.

Daisy said...

Thanks for the update! Your mom should rest as much as she can!

Hendrix, I can see you have a lot of things to teach bebbeh Joel. Like how to use the litter box!

Roses said...

Um...
How exactly *does* your mom type if her incision makes it hard to blog?
I don't think she's doing it right.

C.l.o.v.e.r. said...

Oh Hendrix,
Aren't you just the sweetest big brother?! Thanks for sharing the pics of you and Joel bonding - they are great!! The sunbeam picture is priceless. And the diaper change one is my second fave. :)
Hope all is going well with you guys and please tell your mommy she looks great! Hope she is feeling 100% soon!

Poppy Q said...

What a great post Hendrix/bendrix. I love the last photo of you two taking a nap together. You look after your little brother buddy.

Patrice said...

You're such a good boy, just keep it up. Always be good to your mom and dad and especially to your new born baby brother, Joel.

muffinmidi said...

Joel is adorable. Your parents are lucky that you are taking such good care of your new baby brother.
And your mommy looks radiant.

edda said...

yes... #2 for babies is really icky.

mommy says to remind your mommy that she can't do stairs, driving, or pilates for a couple weeks. (emphasis on the pilates -- that ban can go on indefinitely.) your daddy should be waiting on her hand and paw.

Angus Mhor said...

AWWWWWW, what a handsome young feller! Do remember to cover when changing the diaper, tho'! ALWAYS COVER!!!!! Oh, and keep your mouth closed!

Pinky Ash and Boo said...

It's great to see things going so well for you and Joel. The picture of you two sharing the sunbeam made us all go awwwww and mamma too. Teach him all you can.

Tiger Lily said...

Congratulations to your Mommy and Daddy for producing such a beautiful baby Mr. Hendrix! Joel is just a cute as can be and I think you will be surprised how much he learns very soon. You will be a very good big brother for him ~ just make sure you take as much time with him as Bendrix does.

Good luck with the little bean...there will be lots of new comfy things to lay on...and eventually you can train him to share his food with you!

OMG! Congrats on the little bean!

Princess said...

These are the most wonderful photos ever. I am so happy to know that all of you are having a good time learning about this new life. Many happy days are ahead.
Hendrix, you are such a good big brother <3

I hope the incision improves soon... it does take time, keep moving... and resting. Mom says, the other incision is worse (she has had both kinds of deliveries and would take a c-sect any day)

Loads of purrrs to all of you

The Taylor CatSSSSS said...

Mr. Hendrix, your new baby is adorable....just like you! It looks like you two are going to be fast friends!

SophieKitty said...

Mr. Hendrix, you are being such a good brother. Joel is certainly a cutie! And your mommie looks very happy.

MoMo said...

You baby brother is a cutie. You are such a good kitty to share and watch over him.

Camie's Kitties said...

Hendrix, the pictures of you and Joel are truly spectacular. You are being such a great big brother. Keep up the good work, and we hope your mommie's incision heals super quick.
