Yes, I know technically it is spring already. But when I’m waking up to a lot of snow still as well as a forecast of -25 w/ wind chill and flurries in the morning… I refuse to call that spring. It’s supposed to get up to 0 on Monday and keep warming up. Then we can talk about it being spring 😉
I am so excited that spring weather is almost here though! I love being outside, but being a very cold-blooded person I find it hard to be outside for very long during the winter! Not to mention that at this point in my pregnancy none of my warm clothes fit anymore! So spring will be a very welcome relief from being stuck inside all winter.
This spring we have a lot to look forward to!
First and foremost baby #5! The baby was due yesterday. But we are leaning towards it being this weekend before it comes. I had somehow miscalculated my due date when I put it on the calendar and had thought I was due on the 9th, till I got my prenatal record and realized that I was due 5 days earlier! So anything before the 9th will feel early and I have been scrambling to get all the last minute baby prep stuff that I have been putting off done!
35wks. In the hotel bathroom after a long weekend at the homeschool conference! Having two nights of good nights sleep without kids was amazing! Thanks, mom and dad for watching the kids!
37/38ish wks. Excuse the mess the and the paint can! Getting rooms put back together after gutting mold has been a slow process with everything else going on right now, my husband’s work being insane and me being so sick this pregnancy!
What else says spring like baby chicks!? Sadly, our first attempt at hatching eggs wasn’t super successful and we had only 2 chicks out of 3doz hatch and the one promptly drowned its self in the waterer the next day 😦 which was a little traumatic for the boys… The remaining chick, however, is bringing much joy to the boys, and overall it’s still been a good learning experience for us all.
I have yet to learn how to sex chicks, So I am really hoping that it’s a pullet and not a cockerel, as it’s very much becoming a pet and starting to run to the side of its Rubbermaid when it see’s us. So hopefully it will end up being able to produce a couple eggs someday instead of just purely being a pet!
These guys were born back in Jan already but I thought I’d include them in with the spring babies anyways! These are our bottle babies Cookies and Cream (ram lamb), and Bambi (ewe lamb).
The boys and I started a few plants a couple of weeks ago and man did it feel good to get my hands in the dirt again! I can not wait until summer to plant a big garden and start sprucing up the yard with plants and flowers! Some woman spend too much money on shoes, clothes, and makeup etc! I can spend way too much on plants! (and animals!) I am also trying really hard to pay down debt this year though, so I’m trying really hard to only stick with stuff I already have seeds for.
Sorry for the darkness. My phone does not take good pictures at all!
Well, that is a little peek into what spring is like at our place! What are you most excited for this spring?
