Our New Little Brood
Ladies and Gentlemen, I would like to formally introduce you to our new brood, The Dearborns.
As you can see, these are some itty-bitties. When they moved in on Tuesday, everyone weighed between 10 and 12 ounces. They are even tinier than our darling Easterbrooks, who weighed a little over a pound when we met them.
They're still figuring out how to eat, but are getting better with each meal. They don't take in enough on their own, so we'll continue to do some hand-feeding by syringe until they master it.
Socially, they're doing awesome. Enter their space, and you encounter a small, purring swarm.
It's been such a pleasure spending time with these wee ones already. I look forward to watching them grow, and getting to know them a little bit better.
I'll be back later today to share with you the first of their first names.
So, please stay tuned!
