Jon has spent the past few weekends working on a chicken coop. He placed the final pieces this morning and so we took a family car ride up to Ojai to get some pullets (juvenile chickens to the lay person). We ended up bringing home three different breeds but all are supposed to be good laying hens. In about three months we should have an abundance of eggs to share with all of our family and friends.
So we started giving Leo a little bit of avocado on Memorial Day. He seems to enjoy it more and more each time we give it to him. A part of me feels a little sad that our guy is growing up so fast, but I know it's super healthy for him. Today we tried banana for the first time and it was not well received. I think maybe I need to ripen the banana a little more before we try again. For now, we'll just stick to the avocado.
A couple weeks ago some in-laws came to visit with their new critter, Baby Lucca. Kim, Lucca, Leo and I had a leisurely lunch on the beach at Shoreline cafe and then when the wind was too much for Leo to handle we hung by the pool at Kim and Neil's hotel and the boys got some sun on those milky white thighs. Later, we got together with the Dad's for dinner out. I think we scared everyone out of the restaurant with our two little guys because everyone left and the six of us had the restaurant to ourselves.
Baby Leo is super in to Mr. Meowgi, our cat. He now smiles every time he spots him and reaches out to touch him. Mr. Meowgi doesn't quite return his affection. Poor kitty, Leo can't really control his grip yet and he grabs on tight and won't let go. Meowgi is not so quick to cuddle up with Leo anymore.
