More of the Bunnies!
This afternoon the girls and I were upstairs in the playroom sitting on that wooden window bench when a storm started to blow up over the ridge.
I’ve been trying to convince Rosie that most storms are harmless. She has a tad bit of my anxiety. Not specifically over storms, but over anything. :(
As I was point out the cool lightening we could see in the clouds and telling her it was just a boring thunderstorm with nothing to panic about there was a huge gust of wind and the window we were sitting right in front of cracked! Something flew up and hit it!
After that there was no calming Rosie down. That cracked right in our faces since we practically had our noses pressed up against the window.
They’re very old farmhouse windows, so I’m sure the glass was fragile to begin with. (I’m suspect that they may have lead paint. Doesn’t matter for Rosie or Ada really at their ages since they don’t chew on things, but it will for the baby if he gets up there. The windows downstairs are all new.)
We went downstairs after that. While I was reassuring Rosie that it was just a freak accident and we weren’t actually going to die there was a loud crack of thunder and the lights went out. This is extra dramatic on top of the deafening sound of rain on the tin roof.
By the time I grabbed the lighter and lit one of the oil lamps the lights flickered back on and stayed on. I was all prepared to have a Little House on the Prairie party in the cabin!
Random picture from my phone–I realized I haven’t taken many belly pictures. Just too busy I guess.
This is a semi-belly shot for 36 weeks. We were going to take a cute one but the kids wouldn’t cooperate. This is as good as it gets. We were at my in-laws’ house.
Now for cute things: Bunneh!
I’m trying to handle them twice a day so that they become a tiny bit more tame. (Also planning on neutering them after our house sells. That should help quite a bit.)
I’ve read so many conflicting pieces of advice on the internet about their care and handling. Our bunnies do not like to be held! But they love to play around us on the floor.
We tried holding them wrapped in towels at the suggestion of one website. That didn’t go very well. They just wanted to chew holes in the towels and hop all over.
They much prefer hopping around us on the floor.
They get all excited and do this thing where they randomly zoom quickly and hop while kicking their back legs in the air. It reminds me of excited puppies!
Four month old bun buns!
Yes, they are rather large and still have a considerable amount of growing left to do!
We set them in their Bunny Hutch Palace today so they could check it out, even though it’s not fully complete. I laid the chicken wire around the outside of it to keep them in, but it’s not safe enough to leave them unattended until the chicken wire is all stapled on.
The bunnies love their Bunny Hutch Palace! Since it’s 8 feet long they have tons of space to hop around, plus a large nesting box, a three sided end for shelter, and the other end has no sides (except wire) but a roof for shade.
The bunnies did their excited run, hop, back leg kick dance all over the place and didn’t want to get out of the hutch when it was time to put them back in their temporary crate home.
I’m glad they like it since I nearly killed myself building it! I can’t wait to give you a complete Bunny Hutch Palace tour. ;)
I’m not sure I’m going to have energy to dedicate to painting it at this point. Oh well.
