I know I've been MIA.  But... it's been so busy here on the farm!

On Monday morning, another one of our ewes gave birth.  This time, we had twins!  :D

But... it looked for a while that Nessie would reject one of the babies.  She cleaned one, but the other was dirty, and in a corner.  We watched carefully, making sure that both were getting milk, and thankfully, Monday evening Nessie started cleaning and caring for baby #2.

Two days later.. both twins are happy and healthy!  :D

Meet Bart.

And Bonnie... the previously rejected baby girl!!

You can see, she's still a little bit dirty.

I think it's awesome that both our boy lambs are white, and our girl is really spotty! Yay! :D

Just getting up the nerve to head outside in the sunshine for the first time.  Bonnie's tongue kills me.  :D

Bob had to come over and check out his new pals.

And Alice, too.  I was really happy that she just sniffed them... and went back to eating grass.  She didn't try to stomp on them... which is a big improvement.  ;)

It's so much fun to look out the window and watch the lambs running and leaping and hopping everywhere!
