We celebrated Nigel’s birthday on Tuesday afternoon. It was a madhouse.

A fun one, but a madhouse nonetheless. You see, compared to everyone else, Nigel is incredibly shy.

Look at Ellsworth, for example. He has no shame:

Neither does Patrick:

You probably know by now that the birthday boy or girl here always gets the first bite of cake.

In the midst of the mayhem, sweet Nigel was ever the timid one:

Don finally managed to serve Nigel his first bite:

Nigel thoroughly enjoyed his cake:

And so did everyone else. Here are the lovebirds; Mr. and Mrs. Worthington J. Worth:

Ellsworth most definitely has no shame:

Neither does Harriet, really:

And Patrick licked the spoon. Madhouse. The end.

We’re so proud of you, Nigel!

Nigel wore a fly mask for the first time (ever) on Tuesday evening and took it all in stride. He must have felt instantly better with the flies away from his eyes, and it was funny seeing him act like a goofball:

On Wednesday, Don went out and bought Nigel his very own blue fly mask. (Blue is Nigel’s color; he inherited it from Fergus.) 

Nigel wore his new fly mask for the first time yesterday morning:

He was so unaffected by it, he couldn’t be bothered to pose for pictures during breakfast.

We are so proud of you, Nigel! You’re moving forward by leaps and bounds now, sweet boy! ♥ ♥ ♥
