Baby Animals!


Do you think it’s possible for someone to say “I hate baby animals?” I mean it’s such an absurd statement. I maybe get being indifferent, but can you even imagine someone not loving baby animals? I even like saying “baby animals”. One of my favorite things about Spring is not only the warmer weather but that the baby animals make an appearance at the Hancock Shaker Village out in the Berkshires. We headed out to visit those adorable animals on Sunday to celebrate my Mom’s birthday. Rowan was in heaven. I have said it before but one of my most favorite things about being a parent is experiencing new things with them. I was reading up a little bit on the book The Child Whisperer and Rowan is most definitely the “Fun Loving Child”. It gives me no greater joy then to let her be free, to run wild, to make a special say for her and to be there right in the midst of the adventure holding her hand. This girl loves adventures…

















Update: As I was typing this I actually asked my sister if she thought anyone out there has said “I hate baby animals?” She laughed and then told me she actually said those words the other day. Have I mentioned that my sister is April Ludgate? Oh I love her.

Also, have you seen this post over on Small Fry Blog about activities to do with your kids for each personality type The Child Whisperer talks about? Love it!

    My kids would be happy to be there without a doubt. Kisses and happy Thursday.

  2. I just about died when I scrolled down to the pile of piglets!

  3. That’s such a cool way to spend an afternoon! I love seeing how Rowan just dives right in – she really is an adventurous little lady!

  4. Those piggies! Oh my gosh….

  5. Haha your sister sounds hilarious!

  6. Your sister is April Ludgate? Amazing. I just pictured April and Andy’s wedding where Natalie gets up and gives a “speech” for the bride and groom and then finishes by asking if anyone has seen her grey hoodie, and then the camera pans to April, who is crying like it’s the sweetest thing she’s ever heard. So funny.

  7. The pile of piglets is SO adorable! I took my 7 month old daughter to a local family barnyard day last week. She is still a little young to “get” it, but I find so much joy in showing her new things!

  8. Her face on the pony…so cute!

  9. I love every single thing in this post. If I can’t kiss that pile of tiny little piglets ASAP I’m going to freak out. Also April Ludgate as a sister is soooooooooooooo awesome.

  10. Oh my gosh…there’s so much cuteness in this post! 🙂

    It’s so sweet seeing farm animals living on an actual farm doing things they should be allowed to do.

  12. Thanks for the link, love!

    I’m English so have no idea who April Ludgate is. (Should I?) sorry! Question- why do Americans build their barns with so many windows in them?

  14. I had to google April Ludgate (we don’t watch much TV!) and was surprised to see that your sister was born in Wilmington, Delaware. Me too! Is that where you grew up? Since we moved to the Midwest when I was in 3rd grade and I live in Utah now, I don’t meet many people who are from Delaware. In fact, sometimes when I mention that I was born in Delaware, people ask, “What state is that in?” Hahaha. Living in NY I’m sure you don’t get that as often, but it never fails to make me laugh.
