Funny, Soto is my maiden name!
Anyway, I too looked for those ears to go up. One came up before the other. He looked like he had a comb-over...LOL. Then both came up but leaned on each other at the tips. It's a process. But when they finally come up, beautiful!
Great name! That's my maiden surname. He is adorable! The pic where he has one ear up and one down reminds me so much of my Axle at that age. Axle's ears would go up and down. At one time, he had one flopped over the other. One came up before the other just like Soto!
