Meet Lilly Bit (Another House Lamb)

We knew early on yesterday that Lilly wasn't going to be cared for by her real momma so we quickly adopted her and brought her into our home. (See why I think it is becoming a waste of time to clean my house?) Lilly is the smallest lamb we have ever had. She is even smaller than Angel was when she was born. I am so thankful that the weather was warmer for this birth.



We spent our day caring for Lilly and watching the other baby to make sure the momma was being good. I also had to make another mad dash to Tractor Supply to buy more colostrum and milk replacer. I thought I learned my lesson to make sure that we had these basic supplies on hand during lambing season. But to my credit, I didn't know it was lambing season. It was suppose to be done for now!

grace and peace,

julie

And the Lord takes us into His house and cares for us! Awesome. Everywhere you look He tells us He loves us.

Haha, I guess that Hope's getting her turn at bottle feeding since she really wasn't that old when Seth was little!
