Babies, Babies, Babies! (*Smiles*)

How cute is this little guy?!

To ease any worries, I stayed plenty far away from the nest to take the photos (and I think the telephoto function on my camera did an OK job). These photos are from just last week and already this week, he and his nest-mate have flown the coop! (I'm using "he" and "his" for no particular reason, but really, look at the hairdo...male--no?) I do remember seeing one of them sitting on the edge of the nest Monday morning and had I known that they were leaving for good, I would have wished them "Godspeed!"

Actually the timing was perfect. The nest is in a tree right under our bedroom window and their little "peeps" were getting louder each day and their song was monotonous--just one note. Do birds need time to learn the prettier songs and/or does it come with practice? Hmmm....


Speaking of Cute Little Guys!

Grandbaby Cole:)
Two months old already!


AND...Remember about a month ago when I gave you a sneak peek of this quilt top:

Well, I can now share with you that it is a baby quilt for our second grandchild! First daughter and son-in-law are expecting a holiday-time baby, due December 20th! Yippee!
