YEP.. Thelma decided it was time to release the babies! And let me tell you.. I always have that little nagging worry about first time Mommies, the delivery and accepting babies. But this was amazing! And despite the fact that these twins are boys... We are over the moon with these guys! Totally in Love!
Thelma started showing big signs that it was the big day Wednesday, so I was going out and checking on her every 30 minutes. Hubby got home about 4:30... we checked on her and nope nothing yet and she was eating. We went inside... at 4:55 went back out and there they were... she delivered, cleaned them up, they were both standing and enjoying their first feeding from Mom!! It was amazing!
And let me tell you... Thelma is a fabulous Momma! She is attentive, cleans on them, chatters with them when they get too far. I am so proud of her!
Now our biggest boy... he has Daddy, Alvin's coloring and his parents blue eyes... His tiny brother has darker coloring with black feet and stripe. Hubby named them. He thinks he is pretty funny. They are named Alvin Junior and Chipmunk... so Junior and Chipmunk it is!
So they came into the world fast, and are doing fabulous. And they are extremely friendly - I love that! When Mommy is calm and not timid... it passes on to the babies. These two are totally chilled when holding them, and runs to you when you enter the pen, well unless it is time for a meal, then you have to wait til they are done. Jumping and Bouncing all over the pen when they aren't eating or passed out.
So totally adorable... and what new babies photo shoot would be complete with our Daddy Day One Photo...
Now we have started to watch Alice closer as her milk bag is really getting big... hopefully she won't make us wait as long as Thelma when her signs start really showing. LOL
Hope you have a wonderfully blessed day - here we are very blessed!
