Fun with (near) Alex

Hi everycat,

It's been WAY too long since I last blogged. Sorry. A belated merry Christmas and happy holidays to you all.

We've had a very low-key Christmas. The weather's been warm and we've all been busy adjusting to life with a babybean in the house. As far as I can tell, this has mostly involved hanging out in the living room and watching the cricket (the sport, not the insect) live from Melbourne, Huffle, Gypsy and Tasha's hometown. I've been surprisingly chilled out, and spend a lot of time in my favourite chair:
Kate is 'very proud' of how I'm coping with the arrival of baby Alex. I'm not a big fan of the crying, but I'm not freaked out either. I don't even mind being reasonably close to the action:
... but not too close!

Hope everyone's doing okay. I'll try and visit you all soon, I promise!

Goodbye, sweet friend

You've probably heard the news that my dear friend Monica, founding co-chairfeline of the Pablo Fan Club and dear sister of Phoebe and Joey, had to be helped to the Bridge on Friday. You can read more of the details at their blog. Please stop by and send Monica's family your bestest purrs.

It's a shock to have such a sad thing happen after the excitement of welcoming my babybean brother Alex into the world last week. I guess that's life, huh.

Oh, brother!

Remember how in my last post (like, a month ago) I was worried about having to wear that red suit?

Well, I've got some news. It was actually for this little guy:
Baby Alexander Cosmo came into the world last Friday (4 December) at 3.36am, three weeks before his due date. He weighed 6 lbs 8.5 oz (2.965 kg).

Kate and Nick and Alex are all doing well, even I'm coping ok, joining Kate and Alex in front of the heater in the living room for the mid-night feeds.

He is the noisiest creature I've ever come across. Hendrix, you didn't tell me that they scream like that!

He looks a whole lot better in that suit than I would, anyway.

So sorry we haven't been blogging much, things are a little crazy around here. Hope everycat's doing well, we'll try to keep in touch!
