We have been holding off on getting a pet for years. Years! The boys have wanted one but with Bruce’s allergies and then the move back into a rental, we just couldn’t. Finally, we’re in our own place again and, for better or worse, Bruce was game for trying, so we got kittens in August. August 19th to be exact.



We named them after female mathematicians, Sophie Germain and Emmy Noether. They’re hard to tell apart so Bruce drew a helpful reminder.


This is Sophie.


And this is Emmy.


Bruce had some initial trouble with the allergies, but we’ve taken every measure we can to make this work and it seems okay now. The boys are in heaven.

I have a ton more pictures of their first weekend here.
