You just can't stop life! Although much around us at this time of year seems to be dead, dying, or dormant, there are babies being born left and right. New life!

We have three baby kitties scurrying around the hay barn, hoping I won't notice them or try to catch them. I'll get you, my pretties! Then I'll hug you and name you and take pictures of each of you.

Twin bull calves were born a couple weeks ago. Weldon named them Hoss and Little Joe.
Bull calves ... we knew they couldn't stay too long. Not on a dairy farm :-/
Bye bye, babies. We'll miss you.

A little heifer calf was born a week ago and Pat named her Jan (January). Yesterday another heifer was born, which I haven't even seen yet, but I named her Deanna, to go with Jan. Jan and Deanna. Jan & Dean. Get it? I just name 'em ... don't make me explain 'em.

And now, saving the best for last (drum roll, please) introducing Ryland Avery,
our newest grandbaby and, yes, she's a SHE.
Another GIRL!!
Girls ROCK! Girls RULE! Even when they barely weigh 5 pounds.
You just can't stop life!
