Birds and Babies!

I love this time of year! It's the time of year when the sweet mommy bird and daddy bird build a nest on the top of one of my front porch columns. I love watching the birds fly in and out, listening to them chatter and I love it when the baby birds hatch and grow large enough to peek their little heads over the nest.

It is hard to get a picture of the birds. They haven't figured out that I am a friend! However, I was able to snap this shot of the female bird in her nest! She has already hatched one clutch of eggs, and she is currently sitting on another!


Michael and I always name them baby birds. The last clutch consisted of Lucille, Fluffkins, and my favorite, Pimento! Who knows what names we will come up with next!

And since I have to admit that this post about my birds is a little boring, I will share with you who I am going to see this afternoon. I am going to visit my friend Katie and her new little boy, Lane. I also get to see Lane's beautiful big sister, Kara! Here's a picture of Lane that Heather (my friend/coworker/sidekick) took. You can go here to see more of her pictures! She is an amazing photographer!

Okay, so I lied! Here are two pictures of Lane! Isn't he precious!!!

We love birds except when our neighbor's cat throws them out of the nest. That is such a sweet little baby.
