Pawly Bear!

Good morning, I hope you are all well. I ok, loving spending time with our little man! We had a great day the other day celebrating his Momma's birthday. We decided to spoil her as Harvey got spoilt at Christmas & she only got a few things. We went all out for her birthday. It was really sad tho, as our other daughter Danni only lives about 12 miles away & couldn't come & celebrate with us. We did video call her so she didn't miss out all together .....just sad, that not only is she missing out on Katie's birthday, but also Harvey growing up!
