There has been a lot of chicken talk around our house lately. Aunt Di and Uncle Adam got some new baby chicks a few weeks back and Addie has been begging me to go over and see them. It's been a little hot around here so we have been waiting for a cooler day.
Well, when Eric told Addie that he had to run to Uncle Adam's house tonight, she couldn't hop in his truck fast enough. I called Di and told her she would have a little visitor knocking on her door in a few minutes looking for chickens. I figured she would be all over the new baby chicks but apparently she wanted to reconnect with one of the chicks she met a few months back. And as you can see...they aren't babies anymore.
"Holy Moly" as Addie would say :-)
Can you believe that little peanut is holding that big chickie?!!! She definitely inherited her Daddy's bravery because she certainly didn't get that from me :-)
I guess I shouldn't be surprised though. Addie fell in love with those chicks from the minute she laid eyes on them 4 months ago.
And I guess no matter how big your babies get, they will always be babies to you :-)
Addie wasn't home 5 minutes before she was asking when we can go back. Aunt Di...I think you've got yourself a new farm hand :-) But...we are going to have to figure out what to tell Addie when the chickens disappear in a few months and you suddenly have a bunch of chicken nuggets in your freezer. Ha!
