Goats, gripes, and grasping for greatness
Alys had twin baby girls on 2/3/13

Sometime between Achaosofkittens checking in on her at 9PM and my arrival home at 9:45 last night, Alys had twin baby girls.

I was up and in the barn with them every couple of hours to be sure that they figured out how to nurse and were warm enough. (It was 23 degrees and breezy last night.) Achaosofkittens took the 11 PM shift. We both went out at midnight with the hairdryer, goat-goop (sugar paste), and new hot water bottles. By 1:30 AM, they were dry and both of them had been plugged onto mom at least once. At 3AM, the brick-colored baby was nursing on her own. At 5AM, the blonde one had figured it out, too. So I was able to go to work this morning with a clean conscience.

For the record: Spook Rock Farm "Alys" by Kid Hollow Farm "O.R."

Yay for goat babies, indeed!

Right now, they are going by the fabulously poetic nic-names of "Brick" and "Blondie."

Every time you post a picture, I want to say, "Cutest babies ever!"
And then The Next One, and The One Following, and The One After That... I don't know how you can go to work and leave all that cuteness behind!

It's quite difficult at times. Once they have personalities and start following me around, I'll be chronically late to work.

Also - your fiber mill is closing. Did you know?

No, I had no clue. I just looked at their site, and no mention of it. Of course, it doesn't appear to have been updated in awhile; their next event is Nov. 2012. Did they say when you'll get your fiber back?

If your coworkers complain, you could always offer to bring the babies in with you. ;-)

I got an email letting me know and asking if I still wanted my fiber processed or just returned.

Yeah, unfortunately we already determined that is against the building lease.

Well, that sucks. Would have been nice having that mill right in my backyard, but such is life! Let me know when you want me to bring your order back to you.

Damn businesses, being all strict and stuff! Don't they understand how CUTE those babies are?

Oh my gods! So cute!! (um, my in person version of that might have gone a bit out of human pitch hearing...) Yay for healthy, adorable kids. Twins really are the best - I think i'm required to admit.
