I really meant to introduce the newest member of our family a few weeks ago, but time and life slipped by. In fact, I have had a hard time staying motivated to blog lately, but more on that later.
Living out in the country proves to be quite a jungle. In one day alone we experienced tree frogs,
and snakes to which I have no picture. You can thank me later for that one.
And we found this creature swimming in our pool. Meet Ella, our new red ear slider turtle.
Gavin aptly named her. I think he was going through an elephant stage at the time. He loves his turtle and will wave good morning and good night to her very enthusiastically.
And while Ella was our new member of the family, meet our even newest member...
This little grain of rice who we are simply excited about will be embraced early January. This newest member is the reason behind my lack of energy to blog lately, but that's okay, getting a little extra rest is much more important. And, I think Gavin may like the baby just a tad bit more than the turtle right now. This weekend, I'll try to post pictures of the sweet way we shared the news with our families on Mother's Day.
