Rosie’s Birthday & Unrelated Photos.
Today (the 19th) is Rosie’s birthday. I can’t believe she’s 7! I’ll make her own entry about her birthday. We’re having family over for a small party on Saturday night. We’re hoping to roast hot dogs over the fire if it’s not raining. Since we live out here we have a big fire circle lined with field stone and we can have campfires every night. So much fun to roast your dinner on sticks or stick foil packets of seasoned veggies in the hot coals to roast. Definitely filing that one under the “living the dream” category of things. (I cannot wait until I feel normal again and can actually enjoy eating!)
Rosie has been counting down the days until her birthday for about a month now. She is so excited! Her one major request was that I not have Baby H on her birthday because that would steal HER special day. I’ll do my best. ;)
The bunnies were her main birthday gift. They are growing daily. Holy crap, they will be huge! They’ll be three months old on the 20th.
They’re so smart and curious. They only poop in their nest box, which is good and bad. Bad because the nest box is this huge wooden conglomeration that’s hard to empty. Good because we can bring them inside to play for a few hours at a time without any messes at all!
We build a sort of bunneh fort out of boxes and random things from around the house to keep them in one spot. Otherwise they would hop off and get lost who knows where. They dig and chew, so we have to keep a close eye on them. Molchy Molch was trying to chew up the cabin walls the other day!
I wish the lighting in my cabin wasn’t so dim and warm. There’s almost no natural light due to the (awesome) huge front porch and the wood walls. I’m destined to have low light pictures for the entire time we live here!
I want to kiss this bunny face so badly! Too bad he would nibble my nose and hop away if I tried.
To give you a gauge on bunny size Ada wears 5t clothing. (My three year old is giant as well as my rabbits.)
What’s so funny to me is that Ada’s rabbit is very spunky and always in your face, just like Ada.
Rosie’s rabbit is more reserved and very much similar to Rosie’s personality. (You can see Sirius Black’s white paws in that box behind Molchy Molch.)
Here he is. Happy to chill in the box after hopping around for half an hour.
Molchy would rather eat the box.
Rosie was here too, but there are no pictures of her. I hate that! She was drawing in her notebook (as always), and running around picking up the rabbits when they escaped Fort Bunneh.
Ada on the other hand…
Hot bunnies in their hutch outside…
(The hutch is stuck on the porch. I built it a bit gigantic and then realized I’m too pregnant to help Tyler move it. Whoops.)
They are litter box trained, those turds underneath are ones that have gotten kicked out of the box because they love to dig in it as well as do their business there. And that random feeder is one Ada hung empty and backwards on the outside…
(They are also eating their food dish. Chew proof, yeah right. The label lies!)
Chillin’ on top of the nest box turned litter box…with a random turd that has remained there since the first day they visited their new hutch.
Now I’m having a running contest. How long can they hop around this one turd before knocking it off? It’s been more than a week!
Hi, why are you so adorable??
I like the bunnies more than the kids do. Dang it, this wasn’t supposed to happen!
Rosie isn’t in the bunny pictures, but she is in these pictures! She taught Ada how to drive the “princess car” the other day. Lord help us, it was scary. Ada likes to slam into things on purpose.
This is my favorite one.
Annnd…my “yard” this past weekend.
Mobile Chicken Pen and the neighbor Old Man Jimmy bush hogging our field.
Speaking of my yard, because I cannot sit still even when I keep passing out from dizziness, I am still doing photography sessions upon request.
The picture below was taken that same day, in the evening. You can see the field mowed down behind the couple. It looks so different.
(She’s pregnant and due in September.)
