Say hello to "Gecko," the latest addition to our family! Most people prefer dogs or cats but we got a gecko :0). We have had him for about a week now and have been getting him used to his new home and being handled. Easton has a lovely way of scaring the crap out of him so that part hasn't been going too well. We have already learned that we need to keep a hearty stock of crickets on hand for feeding. We ran out the other day and it had to go a day and a half without food. The poor thing caught and ate 5 crickets in a row when we returned from Petsmart this morning with a fresh bunch. Easton enjoys having an animal to look at all the time (and hopefully hold at some point). When we walk by the room that the cage is in Easton always puts his finger to his lips and says, "Mama, shhhh!" It's so cute!
