Little Flamingo's Little World

Once upon a time there was a bird called Flamingo. She had a baby bird that she named Little Flamingo, or Flaminguito. By the time Flaminguito turned one year old, she was doing a lot of funny things that Flamingo wanted to share with all the other birds in her flock. When a friend from the monkey exhibit at the Zoo told her about a blog, she decided to start one of her own...then two little baby blue birds came along and she added their antics to her blog, too...this is Flaminguito's blog.

Baby Blue Bird is Baptized!

We haven't posted in quite a while, but I'll add some of the highlights over the next few days now that we're settling into fall and will be home a bit more. In July our baby blue bird was Baptized in a joint Baptism with his cousin, "Sweet Pea," who is three months older.

The water was warm, but after touching his toes in it, he'd had enough and didn't want to get in the rest of the way.
Finally, he gave in and was beautifully tears, at least not on his part, can't say the same for mom and grandmama and his Tia.

Even great-grandma was able to take part in the grand event!

And of course, it was a lot of work, so he napped during the reception.

But not during the entire reception, he woke up for some family visiting time...

with Grandpa.

With his Auntie.

Sweet Pea with Father.

The whole nest!

We also had a great time visiting with my sister and her family...this is little Sweet Pea!

Isn't she a doll?

And Flaminguito celebrated her 4th birthday with a "Fancy Nancy" party.
(The cake is her "monogram," just like Fancy Nancy does in the was worth staying up until 2am finishing it when she saw it in the fridge on the morning of her birthday and said, "Wow! That's just what I wanted!")

Doesn't she look grown-up?

He was in style, too.

We also had lots of great time with great-grandparents!

Visiting with Great-Grandma...

and Great-Grandpa...

Of course, it wasn't all fun and games.
(actually, he'd just started crying when we set him down, it wasn't like Grandpa made him do it)
