5-2-16 Meet the Raindrops

It’s the moment you’ve all been waiting for: the Raindrops have been named. Because of the way they were born, I was thinking about naming them fighter names – like Spirit, Chance, etc. I would have in fact done this if the little ginger boy was the only one that was going to make it (which is what I originally thought). I also thought of giving them intense-stormy names, but I decided to go more cutesy. After all, how can you give a name like Thunderstorm or Hurricane to such wee little babies?

Okay, without further ado…

IMG_3786From now on, Ginger Girl will be known as Splash (because she has a white splash on her chest).

IMG_3281Tabby Girl is now Misty.

IMG_3685And last but not least, Ginger Boy is going to be called Breezy.

Breezy is the biggest at 5.5 ounces. Misty weighs 5.0 ounces, and Splash, of course, is the smallest at 3.5 ounces. I’m going to add their pictures to the sidebar today, but I’ll probably update their pictures when they’re about four or five weeks old.

IMG_3721I just love those itty-bitty bear cub ears.

IMG_3756I love how Summer is all “My son makes a good pillow!” and Breezy is all “MAMA MAMA YOU’RE SQUISHING MEEEEEEE!” with his pink paws flailing around in front of Summer’s face.

IMG_3758I love how the tail is draped over Summer’s cheek.

IMG_3702I love how Breezy is using his paw as a pillow.

IMG_3771I LOVE that pale pink belly and the dark pink lips.

IMG_3690I’ve realized that every single caption so far has begun with “I love”. What can I say? I love EVERYTHING about these babies!

IMG_3706Why, oh WHY are the best yawning pictures always blurry?

IMG_3709Teeny tiny Splash.

IMG_3751Mama Summer cuddles with Misty.

IMG_3739Breezy appears to be having a bad hair day.

IMG_3761This is Mama Summer’s “Look but don’t touch” face. Sometimes she gets protective of her babies.

Videos! WARNING: There is a lot of yawning in the first one, and it is really cute. Viewer discretion is advised…

In the next, Breezy and Splash try to figure out this licking thing.

Look who it is!

IMG_3671It’s Mama Sugar!

IMG_3674The Eyes of Wonder. (She was listening to a jet go by outside.)

IMG_3672This girl is SO, SO SWEET. She purrs so loudly and she just wants to be loved all the time.

I gave her the second lime dip bath yesterday. She voiced her displeasure LOUDLY, but for the most part she was well behaved, because she is a good girl. Hopefully this week we’ll get some results back from the tests to find out if we’re dealing with allergies or fungus.
