Aby-a-Day – 29 May: The Jake and Coco Show (Selfie Sunday)

You remember when you were a little kid, and you would put on “shows” to entertain family and friends? Some of us did them live in the living room, others (like me) would record “radio shows” on tape, and today they’re making mp4 movies and loading them onto YouTube.

But I think we all did it at some point. And lately, in our nightly FaceTime sessions with Björn, I feel like Jacoby and I have been putting on the “Jake and Coco Show.”

“Come on, Jake…do you have anything to say to the nice people out there in FaceTime land?”

“…Hmmm?”

“No? Nothing? What, has the cat got your tongue?”

“How about a kiss, then?”

“No? Okay well I wouldn’t kiss me either after that joke.”

“Better now?”

Then I got up for some reason, and Jake didn’t want to be alone onscreen without his sidekick.

So he followed me.

But don’t think for a second that he doesn’t know where the camera is at all times.

Aby-a-Day – 8 May: Hotel FaceTime (Selfie Sunday)

Last weekend at the Seacoast show, Jacoby and I hat a hotel room all to ourselves.

So of course we FaceTimed with Björn.

Because why wouldn’t we?

I tried to get Jake to wave to his dad.

Jake was not into waving.

I tried to convince him that it would be a cute thing to do.

jakecocohotelFT07

He was having none of that.

Look at his face: “Mom…come on…seriously?”

And then later, after I was sound asleep, Björn captured this shot of Jake tromping around the room.

Aby-a-Day – 1 May: The reason I’m late to work (Selfie Sunday)

Sometimes, when the alarm goes off, this happens.

Jacoby comes and cuddles with me.

And by “cuddle,” I mean “he lies on top of me with his full weight.”

And you can’t tell from the photos, but Jake is purring like crazy.

jakecocolateIMG_4119

Did I say, “like crazy”? Make that “diabolically.” He lies on me with his full weight and purrs like a diabolical madman.

He does not want me to get up and go to work. And let’s face it…I don’t disagree with him.

Aby-a-Day – 10 April: Hug it out (Selfie Sunday)

While Jacoby and I were FaceTiming with Björn on night, I impulsively swept him up into a hug.

Jake, not Björn, of course.

jakecocohugIMG_0453

Hey, you gotta get your hugs when you can! Both of them are very huggable, though.

“No hugs, mom! I’m a boycat!”

Aby-a-Day – 25 March: The first time Strollercat went to the Apple Store (Friday Flashback)

The very first time Jacoby went to the Apple Store was back in 2011, when we went to get our brand new iPhone 3. It was a Massachusetts sales tax holiday, so everyone was trying to get a phone to save money, and we had to stand in line for a while.

That was his first, tiny stroller.

He seemed to enjoy himself.

And then, just for comparison, here we are on our most recent trip.

He still enjoys coming out on errands with me!

Aby-a-Day – February 28: Out and About with Strollercat (Selfie Sunday)

So the display on my MacbookPro was acting up…and, as any owner of an Apple product knows, this can mean only one thing…a trip to the Genius Bar!

Since it’s been crazy warm in Boston lately – especially for February! – I took my buddy Jacoby with me to reacquaint Boston with Strollercat.

Here we are on Boylston Street…in February…without even a jacket on!
