    Well 145 is Saturday, so these kids are going to be a little early. I'm so excited!! I timed the space in between two contractions and they are about 40 min apart right now, and really havent fallen into a good pattern yet so we are probably several hours away still. I'm so excited! Say lots of prayers for us please. Last year she delivered a single 12 pounder, she likes to pack it on her kids! I'm just ready to milk and make soap snd snuggle with cute flopsy little goaties again. :greengrin:

    My pictures are taking a while to load, but I'll post them as soon as I can.

    "woah, Mom, back away from the camera...."

    I know right!? My nubian babies usual are pretty small. My average is 6 pounds but I rarely have singles, so I think he just took the weight of what should have been two. LOL. I dig you guys up a picture. He was a hunky little dude that's for sure.

    I didnt milk her last year since she was a first freshner, so I'm hoping she'll warm up to it ok. Some of my girls act like pros and some them act like it's torture in it's cruelest form. We shall see soon enough ;)

    Hee hee, but what goatie is not content when you stick grain in front of them? LOL, I agree though, she is such a little princess she'll have it her way. Watch her way be at 3 o'clock in the morning when it's 10 degrees!

    Well, I went out to put the baby on some warm clean towels and in puddle of goop behind Glitz lay another tiny little kid not breathing or moving. Crap. So grapped her up in the towels I had brought and ran back inside in front the fire to see if I could get her to breathe. I was rubbing and skaking and D.C. (doggie) was licking finally after what seemed like forever her nose twitched and then she sneezed goop all over my face.LOL. Whew, that was a scare. I dont think I've ever seen a kid so alive though in my life. Within a few min. of being practically lifeless she was standing and butting at my knees to nurse. What I cant get over though are her colors! Can you believe this??

    They are 25% Alpine. I'll take some dry pics after they've had some mommy time. Glitz's udder doesnt hold a candle to her mom's in capacity or or attachments, but I'm still very pleased :)
    Thank you.
