Goat-O-Rama Kids of 2018
So cute!
Today we stroll the neighborhood, someday we'll climb mountains together..  Heart
Thanks guys! We're having so much fun with these little critters. They're coming for walks now and we bring them in the house every night to watch a movie on our laps. They're growing so fast we can almost watch it happen in front of our eyes. These photos were taken last Monday and already they look ancient because the girls have grown so much. 

Blackbird thought this stick was delicious. 

But then she saw what Skeeter was eating. It's important to fight over the same teat. You wouldn't want to use up both of them!
Petunia says, "How about some love for me!" 

We had a bit of snow on Monday night so our walks were muddy for a couple of days. The kids didn't seem to mind too much. They tend to stick to the rocks whether there's mud or not. 

Blackbird is very hard to photograph!

Skeeter, on the other hand...
All right, now you're all going to have to indulge me as I took WAAAYYYY too many pictures yesterday. But it was such a beautiful day and the kids are now so bouncy and curious and fun but still tiny and cute and soft. It's hard to put the camera down. 

They're going out with the herd now. The first few times we walked, Phil and I had to carry the kids part of the way. Not any more! 

It's hard to see in the melee, but take a look at Sputnik introducing himself to Blackbird on the rock. She was terrified of that big boy and immediately jumped down and ran to mama, but he was only curious and quite gentle. 

"Wait for us!"

"We're coming!"

"Mama just isn't fast enough." Look at that tongue hanging out--I think Petunia is tired from keeping up with kids all week!

Is this the caprine equivalent of a water cooler moment?

Gotta love those airplane ears!
Racing babies! 

I love sweet mama-kid moments. 

Does this little gal look like a Finn/Sputnik mashup or what?

Oh good, they figured out how to use both sides. 

I love that Skeeter prance!

Meanwhile, Blackbird practices balancing on three legs on two different rocks! 
They are sooo cute! Boy Skeeter is a mashup of the two boys.

She's black velvet, folks. 

In sync.

Whether you're eating them or standing on them, stumps are the best!

Finn, beautiful as always. 

Sputnik just as beautiful.

But they're more beautiful together, don't you think?

Apparently they find each other attractive too. 

"We interrupt this bromantic moment to bring you some baby goats!"
"Uh, did we sign up for babysitting duty?"

"Ok, that thing seriously looks like my mini-me with Sputnik's face on it. Weirdness." 

"I take no responsibility. I'm outta here, folks!" 

Despite Finn's reluctance to associate himself with this crew, you can see the family resemblance. Petunia is Finn's older half-sister, and she is also Sputnik's mother. So that makes Sputnik the older half-brother to these new doelings and Finn is the monkeys' uncle.  

"Look at that there big goat, Blackbird!"

I think she feels safer on the stump. 

Now it's Skeeter's turn to be brave. 

Nope, this one feels safer on the stump too! 

Petunia and Sputnik have always been very close. I love how she's using him for a headrest in these shots. 
Ok, I'll post these last four and then I'll quit torturing everyone with all these baby pictures (for now!). 

"Mama, I saw you use Sputnik for a pillow." 

"Can I use you for a couch?"

"No! A pillow is good enough for anybody."
The most I have for a baby goat is this idiot er goofy goat.
