Stella, on his shoulder:
Thomas has given up the fight and will allow her on his shoulder as long as she doesn't make loud noises in his ear. I still do not allow her on my shoulder, so she rarely tries anymore with me. I told him he just needed to stay strong, but instead he capitulated. Score one for the persistent grey!
