  • lifeologia - Oh my. I didn’t expect this at all.
    Thank you Thank you Thank you.
    (I am so bummed about my typo though, bleh ๐Ÿ˜‰
    This will be a lovely gift for my sister’s little 2 month old boy.
    You’re Awesome and Tweet Baby Design is Awesome too.

Remember this post…My Son the Goat Whisperer? If you didn’t read the blog back then, you should read it…you know because I am such a great writer and I think you should read whatever I post and all. No really, if you want one of my favorite photo tips you should read it.

Well onto this visit, the goats keep having babies and the boys keep loving the baby goats.

…take me home country road to the place where I beloooong…

Baby goats really are pretty cute…big goats, not so much

When I took this picture I was so focused on the act of getting the picture I didn’t realize how close I was to those horns.

Run sweet baby goat RUN!

Baby Goat I am sorry my boys captured you.

Baby Goat I am sorry my 2 year old licked your head.

Baby Goat…next time I am going to hold you. I’m going get a turn.

Baby Sister – when you wear your brothers’ old pjs you look so much like them….and now you are bigger than the Baby Goat.

He is the same height as the goats and just walked among them as if he did it everyday….they didn’t really even mind him.

His dad has a few stories of bodily injuries caused by goats when he was little…I think my little guy will probably have a few of those stories one day too.

Grandpa is actually a pretty happy guy…

Don’t forget the Tweet Baby Designs giveaway is still going on…scroll down to enter.

  • Shannon - What a lovely little peek into family life! I love how comfortable they are with the goats (the old post is to. die. for!) and how special that they get to be near their grandpa and share in such a fun memory maker!

  • Jill R - I love a good goat post. Happy Friday!

  • Rachel - I know my 21 month old has a penchant for licking all things gross (i.e. fire hydrants, playground equipment, carpeting…a goat would not be a stretch). A wise mom asked me if I had a pretty good idea of how those things would feel on my tongue. I had to admit I did. She reminded me that at one time we all had to build our tongue texture database!

  • Alba - Did he really lick the head? poor thing, I mean poor little goat!!!!!!! ๐Ÿ˜‰ Fantastic, fantastic pics!

  • chantelle - your dad’s loving and protective hand on your son’s back speaks volumes about his love for you and the boys……what beautiful pictures!

  • Lesley - Great Friday morning start to the day! Those baby goats are too cute!! Love the licking of the goat, such a strange boy :)

  • bopha - i bet the lick just reminded the goat of his mommy, R has that nurturing instinct :)

  • Ashley - I want goats … lots and lots of them! And of course I read your post on the goat-whisperer because you ARE a great writer AND a great photographer AND I love this blog!

  • Mariah - I just went back and read about yor Little Goat Whisperer. Sometimes the purity and tenderness of their little hearts brings tears to your eyes, doesn’t it? They are such little blessings! I am so thankful for those beautiful fleeting moments when I fully appreciate the goodness of God.

  • Susanne - My 2 1/2 year old is a huge goat whisperer too. He loves it when we go to the petting farm. Last time he had a baby goat in a head lock trying to feed it a bottle.

  • amanda torres - I love the ‘action’ shot of Chris chasing the goat down. Too funny!

  • Sarah - Those goats are so cute! we went to the petting zoo last weekend and my 14month old loved the goats too! did littlest brother say how the goat tasted? lol

  • Liene - I so much like your pictures. I love the ones with your youngest son in it. The one where they chase the little goat, little brother is looking at biggest brother in a very special way, he looks at his brother to see what to do. Then the picture where he opens his arms to hug the baby goat is so cute too. Really, very pretty pictures, and it is so great that you want to share those pictures with us. It is a joy to read your blog everyday!

  • meg duerksen - when annie’s preschool brought in a baby goat i came home determined that we needed to own a baby goat too. it took me all day to decide that it wasn’t a good idea.
    a goat?
    in the house?
    but man…..those babies are sooooo cute.
    cute enough to seriously consider getting one!

  • valerie - love the goat photos and your kids are adorable…and your photos speak loudly! How do you get them so big on your posts? I love the little one with the Starbucks cup and the yellow flowers…your property looks divine.

  • shawn krehbiel - Oh my goodness, we are laughing so hard because of grandma’s story and now seeing the pictures!!!! Thank you for sharing!!! Love sis-n-law, Shawn

  • Michelle W - What good fun with Gramps. Thanks for sharing such adorable family moments

  • lifeologia - You made goats running in a backyard look so normal like it was a bunch of puppies.
    Lovely family time. It’s time we got ourselves to a farm somewhere. Have a lovely weekend.

  • Tracie - The last picture is my favorite. I love how Grandpa has his arm around your son. That is precious!

  • Jenn G. - One of my favorites EVER!! You should totally start a rodeo. Also, the pic of Grandpa C made me laugh out loud… priceless.

  • Tae - i LOVE these photos. (and the ones from the first post!) they are so cute and the big goats are cute too! love that close-up. beautiful photos. your son is just like me (i would have snuggled with goats at his age, too… still might actually!)

    what does “grandpa” raise goats for? and is it somewhere that allows visitors? (my husband and i are road-tripping this summer and going through OK… we’re looking for places to go, and we love farms :)


  • Holly Lesue - What great shots! It seems like Baby Sister has tons more hair all of a sudden! But maybe it’s just the angle and I haven’t noticed until now…?

I’m sure you already know, but just in case….Starbucks is having a Happy Hour (3-5pm) until May 16th. All Frappuccinos are 50% off….

That means when I buy one, I can get another one for Baby Sister. Do you think 10 months is too early to start drinking sugar coffee?

In case you are curious…that beautiful patch of flowers is actually a patch of weeds between our driveway and our neighbors. Sometimes I think people spend so much time searching for the ‘perfect’ location, when really it isn’t as complicated as we make it…but it does help to have a couple acres not in a neighborhood.

Baby Sister is a great sleeper. Oddly enough after downing an entire Extra Coffee Caramel Frappuccino my daughter had an all night party.

Go get 2 frappuccinos…one for you and one to surprise a friend…or your 10 month old.

For those of you that take life and this blog too seriously…no I did not give my daughter a frappuccino!

  • ashlee - cute pictures and hilarious post! I cannot keep my 2 year old out of my frappacino’s! I think i will surprise a friend with one today:)

  • Alba - sorry, but i did thought so for a couple of minutes. She doesn’t need more sugar, she is naturally sweet ๐Ÿ˜‰

  • Yuliana - she is a beautiful baby!

  • Shannon - Mmmm…my weakness is the double chocolate chip frap. No coffee, and so so good! And Baby Sister is so dang cute slurping on that straw.

    Cute bib too ๐Ÿ˜‰

  • Cate O'Malley - Can totally relate! As soon as I walk in the door after a trip to Starbucks, my 2-year-old daughter is clamoring for my Frappuccino. I need it way more than she does!

  • Tess S. - half off?!? YAY!

    and… i’m in love with the bib. amazingly adorable!

  • Katie - While the Frappucino might have been a bit much, I bet she’d have loved to have a bit of the whipped cream on top. She’s probably happy with just the cup and straw though!

  • Simply Create - Maybe you should’ve given her a 30 oz. diet coke from Wendy’s instead??????

  • christina larsen - Thanks for the tip on the happy hour. YUMMY! I had no idea, but I know what I’m doing today or tomorrow.

  • Susanne - As long as you order hers half caf I think it’s fine :-)

  • grace - half-priced Starbucks???? may 16th just became a really happy day for me.

  • the inadvertent farmer - ROFL…that is funny that you posted that little disclaimer at the end. Yes some people are that serious!

    Wonderful photos…some of my favorites of my kids are out in our field with nothing but weeds! Kim

  • jeny - it’s okay if you do … my kiddo’s love their ‘virgin’ frapp’s (ages 6 and 2)

  • Mary Craig - You are funny! The frappucino happy hour has been such a treat the last few days. I love seeing pics of Baby Girl-she reminds me of my baby girl (who will be 11 months on Monday) and today she shocked me by putting away some Chick-fil-a nuggets! Also-their names are similar- 6 letters-starts with a B- 1 syllable! My baby’s name is Blythe.
    Oh-and I made the bubble solution the other night! Thanks for the recipe. Definitely the best bubbles ever. :)

  • katherinemarie - I love your WEEDS and your sweet little coffee lover! I was so surprised to hit starbucks on mamas day and get half off— what a treat. AND I can’t believe they just mowed all weeds from our neighborhood park, because I agree with you EVEN weeds are pretty if you capture them with a cutie.

  • mindy t - Just saw your boy’s room on ohdeedoh. So cute!

  • robyn - such great pics…. so true that the best pictures come when your least trying or planning! whenever i plan… its a bust!

  • meg duerksen - what a totally inconvenient time for a happy hour for someone who lives thirty minutes from a starbucks.
    oh well.
    i had one today anyway full price and let annie try it again.
    because it looks yummy and she used to always drink my coffee.
    but she got that awful taste look on her face and said “oh gross mom!”
    thank goodness she didn’t like it.
    i have no idea why i would offer that? “here…enjoy a five dollar drink! maybe you will like it and want me to get you one every time we come here!” what is the matter with me?!

  • julie - So, my little trick totally backfired. I let my big girls try my iced coffee (no sugar, just really, really strong coffee and almond milk) when they were babies because they were DESPERATE for whatever I was drinking. They both spit it out and cried big dramatic tears. So, obviously, I let the baby try it. Because she was attacking me like a rabid animal anytime I was drinking it. Which is all of the time. But guess what… she stinking loved it. Is obsessed with it. I have resorted to hiding in the pantry to drink my coffee. Not okay.

  • stacy - thanks for reminding me! I’ll surprise my sis with one tomorrow. I love baby sister’s bib!

  • Mollie - Adorable pictures! I wish I had a field of weeds by my house:o) Baby Sister would probably love what my kiddies get…a Caramel Cream ‘Crappuccino’. I couldn’t handle four kids hyped up on coffee; they’d probably drive me slightly crazier than I already am:o)
