Aidan opened up here with Christi, he is usually my quite one. Not yesterday. He talked and talked to her, AND got along with Charlotte. Aidan's not into babies or toddlers -- he never has been. I love the way children grow when you least expect it. See the tall grass in the background the kids go adventuring in there? Last year they all got lost and freaked out. This year they did not go in but so far, and stayed close together. They did not want another freak-out incident! Smart kids.
Aidan's first smiley face went head first over the table and splatted onto the floor. Good thing they have a dog. It was really messy!
Meanwhile Charlotte let loose and had a sugarpalozza! I have not seen a child have such a massive sugar rush in a long time! She sang everything she had to say, like an operetta or musical.
Here are the latest chicks, laid and hatched by Christi and Duncan's older hens. They have enough eggs for all now! This is all so new to me, something I would NEVER EVER do, so I am fascinated by it all! I must have taken 3 dozen pictures of these chickens just this year.
