If I Pick Him Up Every Day...



Little B. Willard is rapidly turning into one of my all time favorite sheep. He's just. so. darn. cute. And while he's perfectly happy hanging out with his sheep friends, he's just as happy to come hang out in the barn with me for awhile too. Until he gets into "troubles" and then hastogobacktothesheepshedrightnow!

Someone somewhere sometime ago was teasing me about carrying around my lambs. They told me if I went out every day and picked them up as they grew, when they got to be adults I'd still be able to carry them around. That was the original premise for this post when I saw this picture come through my email this morning (thanks Phyllis :-).

As the picture loaded up on the blog though, something else caught my attention. Look at the two of us holding our babies, introducing them to each other. Awwww. I'm not sure what Isaiah was thinking, but I'm pretty sure B. Willard was hoping for a cookie.

Since grandma reads the blog, we won't vote on which baby is cuter ;-).

How precious is that picture!!! What a Kodak moment. B Willard continues to be a most adorable addition to your farm family. Will he get much bigger?

If you pick him up every day until he is a grown sheep....you will be a very strong lady, maybe even win an award for weight lifting! Just kidding. Love your photos. Love your sheep! I really need to make some time for spinning. It has gotten away from me this summer.
