Animal Crackers - Went to get a Pedicure and Came home to find...

Yesterday I went to get a pedicure, and came home to find this...

How stinking Cute and Cool is that???? I had told Hubby a couple of days ago that Patti might be thinking of having her baby, but she still looked a long way off -  hardly no bag at all. Well... she decided it was a gorgeous day so why not? Gorgeous or what?
Little carbon copy of her Mom too....  We are calling her Estella - why? I have no idea, just saw the name and really liked it. Leaves room for lots of nick names too. She has long hair, that is wavy. Patti is a SUPER good Mom, she LOVES being a Mom. So much so that she is terribly jealous of all other Mom's until she has her own baby. She is constantly rubbing on her, and touching her.
Love new born ears... one they look huge, but especially that they have that little curl at the end of them for the first couple of days.  And look at those beautiful eyes.
Here again... rubbing on and giving love....


Total sweetness. I am sad that I missed the birth - that is only the 2nd or 3rd in all of them that I have totally missed. But it is also exciting to drive up glance that way and see a brand new baby that wasn't there when you left. Adorable!

And of course we have to have our day one photo with Dad -

This one has LONG legs! We (Hubby and I) always argue about Patti's babies... he says she is too big, and her babies are too big... I say who cares :0)  They are adorable even if a little super model tall - Not the best for breeding perfect small donkeys, but sometimes I think it is better to have healthy bigger babies that make great pets.

Sorry I went a bit nuts today with taking baby photos and totally forgot to take pictures of anyone else! But really... new born babies are always great for a smile right?

We only have two more Mom's to be now for this year. Darlene and Vicki - and honestly I would have put all my odds that either one of them would have gone before Patti! And that is why I don't gamble...

Have a wonderful Saturday, Me... I'll be out in the pasture watching babies play :0)

Ohhh she is SO adorable!!! Loving Estella even if her legs are a little long. (Personally I'd be happy for that problem but then again I'm not a miniature donkey...well... better quite while I'm ahead)
