New babies first pictures, 2016

I don't think anyone wants to see those pictures of the babies just as they're being born, but you might like to see those sweet little faces, happy and content in their world.
Our first born, a precious baby girl

Second born, a constantly hungry baby boy

Number three, a baby boy, is now much stronger and more inquisitive than his siblings.

The hostages have been released, Fluffy babies! 2016

At five this morning, Ms Fluffy made a face at the camera then turned around to show that she was in labor.  Ah!  So we're not fooling this time!  A few hours later and she had three darling babies on the ground.  Two boys and a girl(!). 

The first born was the girl (on far left).  She, of course, will stay on the farm and is to be named 'Precious'.  The second born, a boy, is a little eating machine.  Every time Fluffy stands up, he's first to the dinner table.  When she lays down, he gets as close as he can to her, periodically nosing her side (is it time for snacks yet?).  She softly tells him to knock it off while she rests.  The other boy, had a rough time getting born and is very tired.  He's had some snacks but I suspect he's going to need supplemental feeding (oh, boy. a bottle baby.). 
Fluffy, our Proud Mommy!

Update on Queen Fluffy, 2016

No, Ms Fluffy hasn't had her babies yet.  The hostages are due to be released for another few days but still we have her on watch.
Dad-gum it! Can't reach that itchy spot!
Fortunately I still serve a purpose in her life: reaching & scratching itchies, providing cookie support, shoo-ing away any bugs (or bucklings) that are bothering her...   To keep her spirits up, her sisters have also been helpful.
Fluffy?  All you need is a new hat and you'll right as rain!
Everyone has been grazing for awhile before laying down and enjoying a summer day.  The boys have plenty of toys to play on.  If they start to bother Fluffy a little too much, their mom or even Aunt Dorothy will give them a nudge and off they go to find other adventures elsewhere.
We'll continue to keep tabs on Ms Fluffy, hoping for happy, healthy babies soon!
