For the love of blogging

I know it has been ages and ages since I have posted anything here, but it isn't because I haven't wanted to, I have! It's just life has been full force forward and I think, "I'm going to blog that" but I wanted to catch up on all that has been missed and then I don't do it. 

So, I guess all that has been missed will either stay missed or I will come back as time allows and reminisce and post. That seems ok to me!

Life right now is pretty great, our family is growing (not in number, haha... but in stature) All my "babies" are babies no longer. Cameo is 24, Eli will turn 19 in a week, Carlie is 17, Abe is 16 and sweet baby Denz will be 9 months old in a couple of days!

Can you even stand it? My gosh he just makes me weak in the knees. I love him SO much! 

The farm is growing too! Guess what happened almost two weeks ago!

Loretta gave us 3 piglets! From closest to farthest is Reba (the runt), Dolly, and Wynonna! 
I was SO excited to see these three little bacon bits running around one morning when I checked. If you follow me on instagram, you may remember me posting about wondering if Loretta may farrow soon because she was swollen in her lady parts and her teats were really protruding. The next morning I found the babes! Squeal! Literally!

The goats are growing as well. They are SUCH a joy to me... I really enjoy my goats. Right now Maximus (formerly known as Spot) is in with the ladies right now. Spring babies! 

The yard is plentiful with chickens, ducks, and geese. I REALLY enjoy the geese. Their honks make me happy when I hear them. Yes, they are noisy and messy, but they are so animated and they talk and they do alert when something is not right and because they are so much louder than the chickens and ducks, it's nice! 

These are our lavender orphingtons. They are SO beautiful in my opinion, but they will NOT stay in the 'yard' with the rest of the fowl. I've got to figure out how they keep getting out because we have lost a few for their persistence in escaping. 
Those black ducks you see in the back of this photo are two of our cayuga ducks. When they start laying their eggs will be grey to black in color. I simply can not wait to get our first eggs from them! We now have Cayuga, Muscovy, and Pekin ducks. 
Speaking of Pekin... I love to watch these two walk. Their waddles are so cute. 

There's lots more I could talk about, but let's save some for the time being. Hopefully I can get back in the swing of blogging more frequently. 

So long for now!
