When we were not paying attention our first batch of bluebird babies flew the nest....one day we did not hear their cute little chirps anymore. We were sad to see that they were gone but so excited that they had come and made a home and a family in our yard to begin with. Well very recently we noticed a lot more activity than usual around the birdhouse. Suspecting that something was up Chris peeked in a few days ago and found 5 perfect little blue eggs.
Just last night when he checked on them again he found these two sweet little babies. They are so fuzzy and cute. Like little old bald men. We have been oohing and aahing over the pictures all night. Last time my sister asked for me to give her a little size perspective, so we measured the nest. It is only about 4 inches wide, and these little guys are barely two inches, and those eggs are really truly the size of a easter cadbury egg, the little tiny ones.
and these two...they made themselves a little fort and then discovered the lid/roof also made a good boat....you can bet that they were singing row row row your boat the whole time.
My name is Leslie. I live in Virginia. I am a wife to Chris, a super husband/great daddy/army officer/PhD candidate. I am a mother to three very exciting kids, Avery and Mitchell, ages 13 and 10 and "baby" Delilah who is 5. I am a little crafty. I love fabric, quilting and I love my friends and family. I hope here I can keep up with all of you that are so very far away.
