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.

It has come to my attention (thank you, Daddy Bird, GrandMama, Papa, my own kids) that I  have neglected to post pictures to the blog recently.'s a bit of winter play to catch up on with us. First though, a little summary of our past week's events, from my perspective.

Snow Day!
By Mommy

Soft dry powder, fluffly white
flying, blowing through the night.
Kids awake from winter's dreaming

look outside, begin their screaming!
Coats, hats, mittens, scarves tied tight
this boot goes on this foot, right?
Outside before the sun can rise;
playing, sledding, tasting ice.

Snow angels and fresh-made tracks
slipp'ry ice, watch for cracks!
Every breath makes big white puffs
rosy cheeks and...that's enough!
Fingers cold, can't feel their toes
back inside before sun rose!
"Tired, cold!" cry hungry tots
peel off layers, down to socks,
dripping, mucky, soggy tracks-
fireplace warms up their backs.
Filling bellies-cocoa, pancakes,
second wind-they hardly can wait!
Back to cold, there's more to play,
"No school today..." Hooray, hooray!

Too cold to play outside all winter,
'till it snows then all is better.
In and out, cold then dry
piles of laundry into night.
Messy, sloppy, winter weather
really couldn't get much better.

And that about sums it up, messy, wonderful, blessings of winter weather!  Within 2 days it warmed up to 60 degrees and we had a melty mess, but are enjoying the warmer temps now.  Click on the link below to join our fun.

This is the little gummi bear at 8 weeks...oops!  I had previously written 12 weeks, here are the 12 week images below...

  Everything is going well, the gummi bear is growing steadlily and moving a lot.  Mommy is feeling well and still running a fair amount, but no big races in her near future.  It's so amazing to see so much detail!
