Luke LOVES our cat! I am pretty sure this will be his first clear word other than mama and dada because at 8 months, he already says the "t" sound very clearly and is pretty close to the whole word when he sees the cat. He sits at the window watching the cat and when he is fussy, the kids take him to go find the cat.
He recently got his second hair cut as well. I cut off the top which for several months has been looking like a comb-over on top of the shorter hair on the sides. It was so long, I have trimmed it once around 6 mo. of age and now it was getting in his eyes a second time so I chopped it some more.
He is not the most gentle with the cat but our cat is sweet with him anyway.
