Well today I'd like to introduce you to my baby boy. His name is Aniken (Ani for short) and he is my everyday companion. The name is from Star Wars, but we are not fanatics (at least I'm not.). He was named that at the shelter and we just kept it. He literally follows me from room to room and will not leave my side. I'm embarrassed to say that yes, I do talk to him like he can understand me (oh, come on...all of us do it) and yes, I have my own distinct baby voice that I use. Daniel, my husband, finds it very annoying but I think he's just jealous of all the love and attention I get.
