Bunny Update — 3 Weeks old! :: “When your baby is hungry, you feed him.”

Three weeks and OH how these babies have grown! Do you remem­ber what those tiny, almost hair­less babies looked like? So many changes in such a short time — it real­ly is amaz­ing.

Check out my ear­li­er posts about our babies and their mom­mas by click­ing the links below:

Bun­nies, Bun­nies – Oh how we love our Bun­nies!

How about a glimpse at the 4 day old bun­nies?!

When we first dis­cov­ered the mom­mas decid­ed to share the same nest ((mean­ing all of the Hol­land Lop and Lion­head babies were in one big, mixed up pile)) I was HIGHLY con­cerned. Over the next days, I prayed HARD that the babies would be well cared for AND that the mom­mas would accept & share in the respon­si­bil­i­ties of nur­tur­ing these lit­ters.

These lit­tle mom­mas live out my favorite P.D. East­man book “Flap Your Wings” beau­ti­ful­ly! Sweet Ruby Grace & Pol­ly are liv­ing in a bun­ny farm utopia.

He’s in our nest, so he must be ours. His mouth is open. That means he’s hun­gry. When your baby is hun­gry, you feed him.

Our Lion­head mom­ma feeds the lit­tle Lops and Lion­heads alike — and our lit­tle Lop mom­ma does the same. The result?? These babies are get­ting a dou­ble por­tion of mom­my milk, nur­tur­ing and train­ing. And WOW does it show! Just check out our cuties.

Hon­ey is a “keep­er” — lit­er­al­ly! This one is stay­ing in the bun­ny farm.

This lit­tle black Lion­head is such cutie — notice the shad­ing around her face! Can’t wait to see what this one looks like in a few weeks!

The baby bun­nies are now freely hop­ing in and out of their nest­ing box. test­ing and munch­ing on food!

This Chin­chilla-col­ored Hol­land Lop is a real beau­ty. We have name her — “Ted­dy”. Such a calm, cud­dly nature.

These are just a few pho­tos of my babies. I have lit­er­al­ly hun­dreds — oh what a treat they are! Even more, what a sweet reminder of the Creator’s orig­i­nal design. It’s not about whether your ears point up or down — it’s about see­ing a need and jump­ing in with both feet ((or paws)) and freely, lov­ing­ly meet­ing that need.

What the world needs now is a lit­tle time in Bun­ny Farm Utopia!
