{my little penny in my pocket}

okay, so i mentioned to kasey a few weeks ago that i wanted a little sugar glider for my birthday and when we heard that they were selling them at an expo that we were at thursday evening we quickly made our way over to where they were. and out of over 20 babies that they had there we chose to bring home little penelope. all 4 oz. of her!
she is only 2 months old and her favorite thing to do is sleep. all day! and eat all night. she was really upset the night that we brought her home, then she got used to me and her environment and stop barking. yeah she barks... it sounds like a pinto trying to start. and she chirps like a bird when she eats. its so cute!

anything that she can find to curl up in she will. pockets, sleeves, your hair... or just to be cupped in your hand.
at the expo and in the car ride home her name was oz. that evening it was suca. by the next morning it was penelope. and that one stuck. it fit her well. kasey was getting upset about the constant name change that he told me that i was no longer aloud to name our kids. i told him that before we head in to the hospital, when that time comes, we will have two names... i mean i have to hold the little one before i name them so that i know it's a perfect fit. and i told him that i chose penelope cause it is a name that i have always loved and that he has already shot down for our own kids... i'm gonna have a lot of pets!

and once again, kasey and i are fighting over holding rights. we have just fallen in love with her, i mean its so easy! and now kasey is tell me that he wants one too!

I know I have two little sugar gliders (three if ou count Micah), but you make me want one. Maybe if you get tired of her we could try holding her.

I don't think I'd ever seen one of those, she's so cute!! Will she grow much bigger? I'd be so scared to step on her!!

Oz, Suca, Penny?? Wow. It's a good thing Kasey is taking over the child-naming responsibilities.

Nah, just kidding. That little thing is cool! A little mouse that chirps like a bird...good thing you have no cats.

That is truly one of the things I love about ya, is your love for animals. It really speaks at about what a great mother you are and are going to be to your own children. Sadly I dont think I am much of a animal person. I had never heard of one of those before though, I have to admit she is cute and I would probably adore playing with her at your casa, but not want her at mine.

So so cute Moll... but what is she??? I've never heard of Sugar Gliders? They're awesome. You're going to start a new trend!!
How big will she get??

Molly, that little thing is soo cool. Ku'u even said the same thing. We were thinking about buying a dog but maybe we'll just get a sugar glider. But, somehow I can forsee Namea talking Ku'u and I out of it.

so cute! There are no animals allowed in our house for awhile. I feel like our house is full of them already. I love them though.

Damn my computer. So the comment earlier obviously was not so much Ben as it was me. I'm pretty sure he wouldn't say anything was cute.

First of all - Great hair cut! It's always nice to go to a really nice place and come home with fabulous hair.
Second - Cute little pet! Penny is a great name for her. She looks like she'll be a lot of fun.
