Little Bundles Come In All Sizes

My best friend is expecting her first baby in August. I am so excited for her and have been planning her upcoming baby shower. She recently found out that she is having a little girl! :) On Friday we went to Target together to start her baby registry. She is wanting a butterfly themed nursery. Once she laid eyes on their Tiddliwinks Raspberry Garden Bedding Collection, it was love at first sight. I just love the whimsical colors this collection has to offer. I have started on a baby blanket to match the bedding collection.

While working on the blanket, Xiera came running in to tell me that she had found a bird egg on the ground outside. I followed her and Zella outside to discover an unusual egg and what appeared to be a nest on the ground.

I soon realized it was a Killdeer bird nest and egg. Xiera was afraid that the egg was left behind and asked if she could bring it in to keep it warm in hopes that it would still hatch. I told her to leave it be and keep an eye on it from a distance because mommy bird may come back. It did look very lonely sitting there.

Sure enough, about fifteen minutes later, guess who came to check up on her only "baby-to-be"?

She seemed a bit camera shy so I tried not to intimidate her too much while I took these pictures at a distance.

How ironic it is to sit inside crocheting a baby blanket to help keep my best friend's baby-to-be warm and cozy, while glancing outside my back door at Momma bird keeping her "baby-to-be" warm and safe.
