i guess way back when our garage was a functioning barn.
so i guess it makes sense that we use it as such.
meet sweet baby martha.
she’s micah’s 4H project and the baby fix i need. micah and jerry go to monthly bucket calf meetings and micah will show her at the county fair this august.
we feed her milk replacer twice a day with a warm water bottle mid day. she tries to nurse anyone who comes near her. with every shluck of the bottle, her eyelids slowly close and open…just like my babies did. it’s so sweet.
she really is sweet. there are so many moments not captured: her trying to nurse sally, eliza leading her around the back yard telling her all about her day, micah and jerry scooping straw and filling water, naomi jumping on the picnic table to escape martha’s nursing attempts. i’ll try to capture those sometime. when i’m not using my hands to protect myself from her.
