#tbt one time 3.5 years ago when I was totally not stuck.

#tbt when Mom found the rare Shamrock Tortoise GRUMPing for cuddles on St. Patrick’s Day!  ☘️😤🐢💚

My First Brussels Sprout!, Part 4
(Parts 1, 2, and 3)

Bonus post: Gifs time! Why must tiny roly poly things be so difficult to nom?!

(Don’t worry, Mommy peeled back the leaves for me to nom after a few minutes!)

Thanksgiving throwback to my first ever Brussels sprout!

Mom and I are both grumpy today (I even refused to get up at all!), so here’s a throwback to one time a few years ago, when I got up to an empty plate.  Mom went running for my breakfast when she saw this GRUMP!

Following up on yesterday’s post, here’s a throwback to four years ago, when I could still fit under my baby log without balancing it on my shell!

#tbt when I still had my coconut to GRUMP in front of.  

#Tbt a few years ago, when Mr. Smiley totally tattled on me for getting dirt in my water dish.

Five!, Part 2
(Parts 13, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, and 13)

For my 5th birthday, Mom made me a flower-filled cake to match my flowery party hat!  Apple slices with watermelon and radicchio “filling,” topped with rose petals from friend gckaf and frilly kale edges, and trimmed with fresh picked dandie and clover flowers!

I was so excited to see the dandie flowers!  Mom has never been able to find any dandies on my birthday before, but this year’s weird weather means I finally got dandie flowers on my cake!!

Cake dandies = best birthday cake surprise!

It’s my half birthday today!  🎉 To shellebrate, here’s a throwback to my flower-filled fifth birthday party in August! 🌹🌼🎂😋🐢

Click through the links to Parts 1 to 13 above to see all the rest of my fabulous five photos (and a video!) from August!

Mom and I are both grumpy about the cold today, so here is a slightly blurry throwback to the pretty flowers I got Mom for Mother’s Day in May!

Remember that time I discovered a stack of shiny coins on Mom’s desk, sat on them, and claimed them as mine?  Here’s a throwback to a few minutes after that picture:  Mom tried to take the coins back, so I protected them with this (weird-looking) Super GRUMPface!
