My days are revolving around the babies these days. I’d forgotten how tiresome it is to get formula ready and do the breakfast feeding and cleaning before I’ve even had my own coffee!
I’m usually pretty grumpy until I pick up that first one and then the cuteness makes everything all good again.
I take them one by one and feed them, help them go potty and then put them into a tupperware container until each one is finished.
“Little -Bit”, the youngest one, usually gets fed first. He is so tiny and his fingernails are amazing…
While they’re all in the tupperware, I clean the ‘nest box’ (a small pet carrier).
After getting their bellies filled they quickly snuggle in and go back to sleep until the next feeding time. Here they are in the tupperware waiting to be returned ‘home’ to sleep.
All of them except Little-Bit have opened their eyes now. It’s kind of cool to see them open for the first time ever, clearly unfocused, foggy and blinky. Then, the next time you pick them up you can tell they are really seeing things! Once that happens they start to become much more active and curious.
Today we are taking Paddy on a field trip to swim in a real pond at Chesley! It should be fun, definitly interesting! Pics will follow!
