We have a special BiRTH announcement! ((and I am not referring to the royal birth))
After a 36 day wait, I was beginning to think no babies would be coming to our beloved bunny parents. But we have had….
We were told to mate them for three days. But after about 2 hours of bunny shenanigans, I thought Lula had been “messed” with enough so I separated them.
As her due date came and went, Brod snapped at me. He said “I told you you should have let them mate for 3 days!!”.
I calmly replied “Brod — it only takes one time. Never forget, it only takes one time. I am sure babies are coming.”
But at 5 days past the due date, I began to wonder if God would validate this important LIFE lesson for my boy. I sure hoped HE would.
And then, this morning, as I prepared to give a talk on faith at church, I received a text from home. It was simple and short: “bunnies.”
Brod was going about his morning pet care duties…fresh hay, fresh water, food & a delivery of fresh picked dandelions. According to David, he burst into the house screaming “The bunnies are here!! The bunnies are HERE!!”.
Hallelujah!! We have had a successful birds & bees talk with the kiddos. God validated a very important lesson. Yippee!!
These little kits are so cute! They are “Lion Lops” which is a mix between a Lionhead and a Mini Lop.
In this video ((click on this link IMG_3678)), you can tell we are already in trouble. The little cuties haven’t been alive for 24 hours and they already have names. According to the boys & Gracie.. “We should keep 2, name them Zoie & Despereaux.” Um, that wasn’t in the plan.
As you can see, we have 3 black ones and one pink one. But we won’t really know what they will look like for a few weeks.
As you can imagine, we are pretty excited!
