Happy First Birthday to My Stinky Sticky Little ahem Brother

**duh, this should have posted for Saturday, July 10th)
It is hard to believe that our little #2, Blurpy Boy, Munchasaurus, Chubs, Stinky Boy, Turdmeister, Pooter aka Baby Joel is one year old today. Wow. Here is a walk down memory lane.

Joel at approx 20 min old, July 10, 2009

Here is the very first time I saw Joel close up. He was 3 days old. I thought mommy gave birth to the stoopidest kitten alive. I'm still not sure I'm wrong. After all, he is a year old now right? No walking yet. I mean, I'm cool with it, he doesn't need to be any more mobile than he is, but kittens walk at what? 2 weeks?

Joel and I meet for the first time

Learning a very valuable lesson about location and timing

I am a good House Panther. I pay attention to stuff. I know what is going on. But still, I have no idea when that little squishy blurpy turned into this.

Happy birthday Chubs. I came into the cage area so you can pet me. Mommy said cause I was so nice, extra special treats for me!!!

(no pics of the actual petting so mommy could enforce the "gentle" rule with Joel)

My beans are having a party for him later, but we plan on spending the early part of the day relaxing as a family. I like that idea...as long as Joel is an arm's length away! ha ha ha

Happy Birthday Blurpy Boy. You're growing on me for sure.

Since my beans are having their party, I think we should have one too. We've got the whole upstairs. It is all gated off from sticky little beans and all the grown up beans will be drooling over #2 and won't pay attention to any messes we make...until it is too late. I've got extra treats and fresh organic catnip plants. Also tons of climbing and sleeping areas. We could knock all the stuffed animals and books off Joel's shelves too! whoo hoo! Come on over!

Dude, your upstairs party sounds like more fun than the one for the human kitten Joel. But we do wish the little guy a happy 1st birthday!

Par-tay! Woo hoo!

Congratulations to you and your parents on surviving a whole YEAR of blurpiness. Happy birthday Mr Joel.

Hey, my blurp has a very similar Fisher-Price jungle playmat! I'll show you sometime. It even has the same stupid giraffe. Except our stupid giraffe has a rainbow coming out of its head. Go figure.
