Oh my. I’m in love! These sweet things have just melted my heart!
Aren’t they precious!?! I had been losing sleep with worry over the arrival of these munchkins! My first birth on the farm where I needed to be present. (Lots of reasons really …. but mainly cuz we milk mama and will be selling the babies.) They were due to come today. So on Monday I rechecked my lists and stayed up late watching You Tube videos of live births to prepare myself. (not pleasant!) I checked mama then took the boys to school and went to the vet to get some meds to induce her so I would know approximately when they would come.
I came home from preschool and guess what?!?! They had JUST been born! All wet and gooey and everything and I didn’t have to do a thing! Except scream with delight, call hubby, spill cornstarch everywhere (for their ears), dry them off and tuck them into bed and then milk, heat treat milk, feed, repeat Over & Over & Over & Over again! But aren’t they precious!? They’re coats are so silky!
What an experience! I am thrilled to be able to live this simple life on the farm with my boys. I could not be happier. Even at 5 a.m. milking time!
Embrace the simple joys!
