Spring Babies

With spring comes the little pitty patter of tiny little feet and there are alot of tiny little feet around the homestead!

Brownie is taking a nap with her son Lo Man

Sissy and her daughter Lexie are enjoying a nap in the shade

Lester is enjoying napping with his mom and brother even though they ignore him. He spends his days out in the goat pen but comes back inside to Maaaaa at night. He also has Maaaa bringing his bottle out to him during the day.

Louise keeping a watchful eye over her babies
This years first incubator hatched chicks moved to a heated house outside and doing great!

So as you can see there are lots of new mouths to feed but so many fun times ahead. I am sure there will be lots of stories and photos to share.
I am still slowly moving links and things over from the old blog. If you don't see your blog in my listings leave me a comment so I can make sure to get it added. I am getting old ya know and forget quickly. I am also trying to go back and follow everyone from here that I was following from the old one. Its just a slow process as I am not on the computer much because of all the homestead chores. I also apologize for not visiting my blog friends and neighbors very much these days. I try to pop in to a few each morning or evening but am hoping to have a set time each night to just visit and enjoy reading what you are up to. And... I am also excited to be a part of Girls Gone Trashy ! I am honored the ladies over there are letting me share some of my projects. You will find my posts every Wednesday but please make it a daily read  as each day of the week has a different writer and you will find some awesome ideas! Have a wonderful middle of the week and don't forget to count those blessing!!

I especially love the picture of Daisy. It looks like she is whispering in her baby's ear. Do any of the other goats play with Lester? He's too cute to be shunned.
Thanks for updating when you can. I'm sure spring is an extra busy time for you.

I want Lester!! I want to give him all the attention that his mum and brother are not!! I know you give him lots of love Peggy but it's heartbreaking to be ignored like that!! :) Our dogs would love to play with him.

I don't know how you do everything that you do, let alone read blogs as well but I'm happy you do find the time!!

I'm so happy to see babies everwhere. Lester is adorable and he will have friends to play with. If you didn't take him and raise him he would not be around. He is one lucky buckling. Everyone looks so happy sitting in the shade taking naps. Nice warm weather. Take care

After seeing these picutres I swear I've overdosed on cuteness. Lester is still a little bitty guy isn't he? Glad he's got Maaaaa to bring him his bottles.

Did your hen and chick plants survive the winter? If not, let me know and I'll send you a box of them. They're growing like weeds here.

Hi Peggy, I love seeing all of the little ones running around this time of year. Lots of new mouths to feed...

Lester is doing well, isn't he??? Sorry his Mama abandoned him --but glad his 2nd Ma came along to help out. He's probably the LUCKY one.

I enjoyed your writing on "Girls Gone Trashy"..
