Welcome Milo

I have THE most wonderful husband in the world. After a very hard/emotional week, he surprised me by telling me I could bring this sweet abandoned kitten home the following morning! I was (and still am) overjoyed. I love you, Wade Shaw, taller than the mountains, deeper than the ocean.

On November 9, we brought Milo home. And Henry has since informed me that Milo's full name is Milo C. Jackson Shaw. Where the "C. Jackson" came from, I have no clue.

Henry LOVES Milo...almost as much as I do. Henry shared that I could be Milo's mommy, but that he got to be her daddy. He carries poor Milo from room to room. Wherever Henry goes, Milo goes too.

We took sweet Milo to the Vet the day after we brought her home. It was there we learned Milo was a girl, approximately 6 weeks old, and weighed in at a whopping 1.2 pounds. Two weeks later when we returned for her first round of shots, Milo had doubled her weight to 2.4 pounds. And yesterday, Milo had doubled her weight again! She's now over 4 pounds and growing stronger (and more feisty) by the day. I wonder if she'll be 8 pounds in another month?!?

Wade pretends not to be smitten with our kitten, but when he thinks no one is looking, I've caught him holding and even whispering sweet nothings to Milo. He even bought her a night light for her room (aka. the laundry room). You know, in case she's scared of the dark or the overhead light is too much.
