Expecting

Well, it's Springtime and the birds and the bees have definitely been busy here at the Frisby home. We are pleased to announce that we have some little feathery friends on the way!

About a week ago, I noticed a pair of little birds building their nest in this hanging plant outside our kitchen window. Now the mama bird is always in the nest, so the eggs must be there.



I realize this is not the greatest picture, but if you look closely, you can just make out the silhouette of the mama bird's head. She's very protective of her little ones on the way, so getting really good pictures is not possible.

We don't know how many eggs there are or when they're due to hatch, but we're so excited for the proud mom and pop to be. And we love watching it all go down from the window!

i loved when the birdies built a nest outside on our porch. when the babies hatched, i truly felt like a proud mama. they returned to the same spot for 2 years, but then the following year, for some neandrathal reason, tat knocked down the nest! he didn't like the poop running down our outside wall. the nerve! they've never returned. sob.

Why don't you see how protective the bird is and give us a better picture? Just make sure Jared is taking a picture of you when all of this goes down.

You are hilarious. My sister has a nest on her porch and 2 of the eggs have hatched! They sure are hideous little things at first, but they'll get cuter.

Never headline your blog "expecting" unless it's you who is expecting not some silly bird.

For real. What Tammy said.

"the birds and the bees have definitely been busy here at the Frisby home"

Seriously? I was completely blindsided by the bird thing. Haha.

It's really too bad that you guys don't recognize you are headed to hell. Children are an heritage of the Lord. I wish you believed that. You could have had a baby by now. You are the same as people who get abortions.
