Are You My Mother?


My girls kept telling me that a small bird had made a nest in one of Nana's hanging baskets and laid three eggs. They check once a day after they saw the mother bird fly away so they wouldn't make her mad. When they were sitting in the chairs by the front door, she'd yell at them and swoop down to "scare" them if she wasn't already on the nest. Two of the eggs hatched a few days ago and Brooke finally got a picture. Their little fuzz is coming in, so they don't look quite so naked. Still ugly. But they'll improve with age. :^)

Those are SO CUTE! I'd like to have a few bird houses and bathes around our yard, but first I need to figure out a way to keep the cats away from them.
