Where's The Coffee Table?

The coffee table has been banished from the living room and is now residing under a blanket in a storage locker in town.  Sadie had taken quite an interest in the table and one of her favorite activities was (unfortunately) crawling under the coffee table and then trying to sit up.  This never turned out well.  When she wasn't under the table she seemed determined to fall against it and bang her head in other ways and so Nani announced last night that it would be going away for a while.

Sadie is in love with the new open floor plan.  She spent a good portion of the afternoon crawling from one side of the room to the other, pulling out toys and then making her way over to the window to check for birds.  She's in love with the little yellow finches that eat thistle out of the thistle nets.  

The cats have also noticed her new mobility and with the exception of Pumpkin (who turned 18 today and is a little senile) they are steering clear of her little grabby hands.

Another upside of crawling is the exhaustion that goes along with zooming around the room for two hours.  Sadie hasn't been resisting nap time as much for the past two days and I think it's because she's using all of her energy moving around.  Nothing is left to resist sleeping.

Hopefully that will carry over at bedtime and she'll be out by 8 o'clock.
