We have OPEN eyes!! Oh, the bunny love is bursting over here!

Just when I thought I was maxed out on bun­ny cute­ness, one the bun­nies opened “his” eyes on day 11. Now, I don’t real­ly know if the baby is a he or a she. You may be sur­prised to know, I am no expert on such things. So, I will have to ((once again)) check “the Google”.  I don’t exact­ly know what to think about hav­ing this sen­tence in my search his­to­ry: “How do you tell if a baby bun­ny is a boy or a girl?”. Even more than taint­ing my search his­to­ry, I am wor­ried about what I will SEE and do in order to deter­mine how many boys and girls we have. Oh dear.

Well, no sense wor­ry­ing about tomor­row, today has enough trou­ble of it’s own.  But one thing that isn’t trou­ble?? Car­ing for these sweet lit­tle things.

Mom­ma Lula has been doing a won­der­ful job. Just look at her pho­to­bomb­ing this pic­ture. She is stand­ing on her hind legs, keep­ing a close eye on me while I han­dle her babe.

Their sweet lit­tle eyes are open­ing and the lev­el of pre­cious­ness will rot your teeth right out of your head. One day lat­er ((day 12)), all of the babies have open eyes!!

On your mark:

Poor sweet baby bun­ny! He ((I am fair­ly cer­tain it is a he because “HE” wet on me — twice))), bit me twice and tried to dig out of my hand. Nei­ther hurt, but this one is frisky. Once they become accus­tomed to life in our fam­i­ly ((for the next 5 weeks)), they will set­tle down for sure.

This one wet in my hands too. Strange­ly, I didn’t even mind.

See that?? Pure joy. I will have 4 fur­ry friends for sale soon, and pure joy can come to your home too! Be sure to let me know quick, they will be gone in a flash.

In addi­tion to open eyes, they are hop­ping out of their nest­ing box and curi­ous­ly inves­ti­gat­ing their brand new world. Here is a video clip of some of the babies meet­ing their dad­dy for the first time!! ((CLICK HERE  to see the bun­nies on DAY 13 — Bun­nies meet dad­dy for the first time part 1 ((VIDEO))  & Bun­nies meet their dad­dy — part 2 ((VIDEO))))

I am just lov­ing this bun­ny farm thing so much. It has been a real bright spot to our rou­tine. The kid­dos have learned lessons too numer­ous to count, but just to name a few:

  • ten­der care­giv­ing
  • atten­tive­ness to oth­ers needs
  • respon­si­bil­i­ty 
  • the birds & the bees ((last but def­i­nite­ly not least)) or in this case the bun­nies & the bun­nies

Doesn’t that make you want one of your very own?
