Happy Birth Day!

I bet you had no idea the boys would be so excited about today's birth.

Oh, you thought I meant the royals?  Nah...  I mean, good for them, but whatever.  The really exciting news is right in our own backyard.

Uncle Podger and Polly (formerly known as Napoleon Bunny-parte) are pleased to announce...

the arrival of three warm, wiggly baby bunnies.  (They look kind of like little hippos.)  Number four didn't make it, but these ones sure look lively!

And with that, we'll leave the mother in privacy...

... with the full moon rising above her.

We've been joking that since the bunnies were born the same day as the royal baby, they ought to be named after British kings and queens.  Oh, you've got your Edwards, Charles, Williams, and Henrys, and your Elizabeths and Annes.  But how about Matilda (from the 1100s)?  Or for a boy, Knute?

Oh no, this one is perfect...  Harold Harefoot!

Congratulations! :o) I'm thinking Harold Harefoot sounds perfect. There has to be at least one boy in there.

Full moon always brings the babies!

You're so right, Joanna! The OB/GYN nurses I worked with confirmed it.

Congrats on the bunnies! I think you should have gone for royal names ;-)
