We adopted Chewy into our family in January, but he was born in October. Chris and I decided that we needed to throw him his very our birthday party. We picked the date October 19th because it is a day when Preslie was alive, and a few days before her death. We didn't want Chew to feel cheated when Preslie's birthday came around, plus who doesn't like Birthdays?
We wanted to share the growth and cuteness of our little Chew over the past 9 months...
The day we brought him home(January)
He loved to sit on Chris' books
He was always curious when we did the dishes (February)
He wasn't too happy the day of his 4 month birthday
Chew started to stick out his tongue at us, it was so dang cute (March)
He loved his new fish friends (April)
His favorite spot then and now is the kitchen sink (May)
His favorite spot to sleep was on top of his jungle gym (May)
Chew and Chris are best buds
He LOVED my brother Merrick (July)
After sweeping up loads of hair everyday, Merrick and I decided to shave him
Lets just say he took it very well, and looked so tiny and precious

I just love Chew (September)
Chris loves Chew too
Chris takes Chewy on a walk outside everday when he gets home
Chewy has such a sweet face (October)
He loves to lay right up against Arista, and try to hold her
Or kick her
Or hug her
For Chew's Birthday we bought a harness for his leash, and I took him for a long walk, and then Chris did too.
We had a few of Chewy's buds come over and play with him.
We bought a huge cake to celebrate!

Chew got some great new toys to play with. Some fun balls to run around with, a little toy mouse, and a feather toy! He is such a spoiled kitty! Thanks for celebrating with us friends! Chewy had a great Birthday, and is passed out from all the excitement.
Chewy is more than just a household pet. He came to us at our darkest and deepest hours, and has brought so much joy and happiness back into our lives. I am not sure how we would have made it through this far without him here along with us. We know the day we saw him that he was meant to be with us. Although he is crazy at times, and makes huge messes with my plants, we love him like a son. Happy Birthday Chewy!!
