My Monday Mugshot… never mind that the mug is blurry! THE KIDS ARE HERE!!
THE BABIES HAVE ARRIVED!! Ginger finally kidded, and our guessing game is OVER. If we had been playing Russian Roulette, I would be a loser. Thankfully, I can now say that my pregnancy detection skills are INTACT. Ginger had three kids! Two doelings and a buckling. Of course she waited until after midnight to have them. That way, my “I’m pretty sure today is the day” comment earlier was a lie. They have yet to be named… but will eventually have cooking/spice names. First up, is the buckling! He was baby number two in the kidding order. Came out yelling. Good thing too, because Ginger was pretty quiet about the whole thing, and we missed the actual births of the first two. Only got there in time to dry everyone off.
Here’s the beautiful momma with her baby boy this morning.
Here is baby number one. She came out first, a beautiful tri colored girl, with her momma’s ginger color for her primary, with black and white spots.
Brother checking sister out.
Here’s baby number three. She came out breech, and took a little while to follow her brother and sister out, but Ginger managed her like a pro, and thankfully, none of the kids were especially huge like they were last year. This little girl is black, with a lighter sprinkling of white hairs mixed in than her brother. I really like the way it looks, though.
Sister checking to see if sister is where the milk is…
Another shot of doeling number three. You can see her salty sprinkles better in this shot.
And so begins the kidding season on the Pretzel Place!! Can’t wait to see what kind of kids Lucy has, and also if she is the milker I hope her to be.
