I got to go visit the newest member of the family yesterday! Bentley is now 5 weeks old and so stinkin cute!!! He is just learning how to meow which was quite a sight.

He is considered a preemie since they were born a couple days early but they are all super strong and healthy. We are still missing our boy miserably so getting this new little guy is going to help heal that hurt. This little guy is going to be a nutt, I can tell. Here are a couple pictures from our visit yesterday...His head is really white and the rest of him is gray and white like our Riley cat! Such a sweet litle guy. He is going to be spoiled rotten.

And then we sucked out the old volcano rock and put in this fire glass fr
