Blaise: "I've known you for eight months now, and over the course of our relationship my love has only grown deeper. You are my sun, moon and stars. You are the only one for me. Ping, will you be my valentine?"
Ping: "Get me out of here!!!"

So, we moved. (Hooray!!) We found a new place just around the corner from our old apartment. We are pleased as punch! I've been busy getting everything in order. Today I caught Blaise checking himself out in a mirror I've yet to hang. Then later I noticed Ping admiring himself. Look closely in the picture and you'll see that he has a puffy tail- a sign that he's defending his turf. I guess Ping, like Blaise, doesn't recognize his own reflection in the mirror!
Tuesday, February 3 was the feast of Saint Blaise. We took Blaise to mass for a special blessing to celebrate his namesake. The Saint Blaise blessing uses candles (unlit!!) to bless the throat, as Saint Blaise is the patron saint of throat disease. (We Catholics have patron saints for everything- one of the reasons I love being Catholic!) Hopefully Saint Blaise is blessing little Blaise's gums, too- as two additional teeth are poking through (ouch!) and patient Mama is burning off some of her stay in Purgatory. (What a very Catholic post this turned out to be!) Be blessed!
