Great pictures!!!! Thanks for all the effort that went into putting them up for us! How is Plucky today, Angela?

My phone isn't bluetooth enabled. It isn't much anything but talk enabled, lol. My next one will be much nicer, though! I had NO clue anything but a camera phone could receive photos!! You did a great job figuring that out!

PS Thanks for all the work for the pics, too!

Explanation - I flipped him back over onto his back so you guys could get a small idea of what he started out like. That's how he spent the first 24-36 hours of his life.....if we stood him up on his feet he would stumble and flop back over and cheep pathetically from his back/side. Except that in that first mock-before photo his head is much straighter than it really was in real life. :-) His head was sort of....crinked to the side.

The next two photos were my atempts to show how he could stand (on the glass lid) and balance even on my hand. Amazing isn't it?
