Welcome Baby!

We are proud new parents to a brand new baby - a brand new baby bunny! He or she is so darn cute! The pet store told us it was a boy, but we are not totally convinced, so we haven't named it yet. It's coloring looks like oatmeal or cream of wheat. I love it! It's not the baby we always dreamed of bringing home, but s/he is pretty special. He is a Netherland Dwarf. We are not sure of the age, we are thinking he is a couple months old. He weighs a whole 1.22 pounds. He's about a foot long when totally stretched out, but cuddled up in a ball, he fits in my palm. As I'm writing this, he is sitting contently on my chest. He loves carrots. Not all rabbits do, but within 3 minutes he devoured a whole baby carrot. He's eaten about 5 so far. At the pet store he was drinking from a mounted water bottle, but as you can see in the picture he drinks just fine out of a little cup. Sam has had two other bunnies growing up, but this is all new to me. Henry lived to be 8 years old and Bito was 12 when he died last August. His Dad built this cage about 20 years ago and all the little cups and towels have been used with each pet, now it's our turn. We have bunnies roaming around our neighborhood and they have always reminded me of the boys, so I'm sure they sent him to us. Thank God for Little Bunnies!

Congratulations on your new baby! I am new to blogging so I just read about your boys. I will keep you and your family in my prayers. Keep looking for supernatural evidence of them. God is everywhere and will pick you up when you need Him the most!

Monica, how cute! Rabbits are my all time favorite animals (tied with penguins!! ) In fact Matthew calls me wabbit and I call him penguin. He's so cute. I can't wait to see him when I come over for dinner.
