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!!

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
- 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?
