To wrap up May, I just wanted to review some big milestones in Monkey's life. You are aware of most of them... but there might be a new one.
Kneeling and crawling - he can do both and he does them a lot. He started out crawling doing the army crawl but now, about 90% of the time he crawls on all fours. And his favorite thing to do is to crawl after our gray cat Bella who, apparently, is not smart enough to run away. All the other cats recognize Monkey Movement and run as far away as possible.
And last but not least...
Black eye - huh? Well, Monkey has his first black eye. Yesterday while Brian was holding him he dive bombed at Brian's head and caught the bone under his eye on Brian's glasses. It's all bruised but it doesn't seem to bother him at all. And the way he throws that head around, I'm sure it won't be the last time either.
