Nana Has Some New Babies

Now maybe this wasn't
what you were expecting...
but HEY
(they say Hey a LOT in WI)
So, Hey, I can be a Nana
in more ways than one!

This is a Spring decoration
that hangs in the side
door entryway.
It is one I made many
years ago!

Well, I DID
have a Welcome sign on
the front of it...

This is what happens
when you leave your
Spring decorations up
too long. have a
sign on the front
by your side entry door.
WHAT is she guarding?

MyHero is standing
on a chair to see
for himself what all the
fuss is about.

What is that?

You can't really tell?
How about now?

Are they cute or what?
SweetCheeks got lifted up
earlier in the week for
a peek at the babies?
She asked me how
come they
"Poopted in theihr bed".
I told her she
"poopted in her bed when she was a baby too"
She did NOT think that
was funny.
You know what-
even though my
Spring decoration is
ruined because the
birds "poopted" on
the bunny's head~
I am
to welcome these babies.

For soon, soon,
they will be grown
and flown.

Just like my
I'll enjoy them every moment
they're here~

Aren't they sweet. I had a nest and babies last year on the front porch. So fun to watch and then they are gone so quickly just like our kids.

So adorable, I looove how their Mommy found such a safe haven for her brood! They couldn't be any snuggier, if she'd tried! A great lesson on nature for your Grands too! Now, lets see if I can really leave you a message this time...(I've tried for days & days)! :( Debbie @ Cottage Hann~Me~Downs

Thanks for sharing your new babies with us. I have had Cardinals in the bush below my bedroom window for 2 years, love the litte fuzzies, they just don't stick around very long.
Love ya

You just never know where a bird will choose to build a nest. But they are such fun to watch. And just as quickly as they came, they are gone again. Enjoy!

Lin said...

Well she chose a great place to build a nest & have her babies :) oxo

Blondie's Journal said...

They are precious...but they build their nests in the darndest places. I have a nest right outside my front door on the light fixture. The mommy darts away and leaves those little babies every time I do in and out. Now I use the back door, silly me!


Pam said...

What could be any more cushy than building your nest on top of a bunny's head. They are adorable.

WeeFaerie said...

Awww what a precious find! Enjoy them while they're there!

Kathy said...

Well, that momma found a nice, cushy, "Welcome" place for her babies.. : )
We get some Robins every year on the back deck... so fun to watch...
Thanks for sharing them with us

Tete said...

They are so sweet and that momma bird sure found the bestest place to keep her babies safe.
Tell SweetCheeks that when you are a baby, poop happens, and it just takes you a little while to figure out how to deal with it correctly.
Our momma's have their babies high up in the trees because we have kitties that would be in that nest so fast...just to play.
Sometimes they fall out during a bad storm and we find them the next morning. :(

How cool! We had left the side door on the garage opened for a 24 hour period so the dog could go in and out when it was so hot. In that short time, a bird had flew in and out that door making a nest in our bucket! Unfortunately, we had to close the door and remove the mess before she laid her eggs! They are amazing in how they make those nests! Have a great week! We are hanging in there looking at trucks!

Rebecca said...

What a sweet place to make a home. Looks like to me she picked just the right spot.

Your muse ALWAYS makes me smile girlfriend. You are just the best...

God is good. All the time.

Love, Rebecca

Dear Diana,
You are truly one of the kindest, sweetest people I have met, in blogland and out. You are NANA of the year in my books.
I found a drink in a christian bookstore while I was visiting my son. It is called a frozen soy chai tea....tastes like drinking pumpkin yummy. You and sweet cheeks would have loved this has big tables and a table full of games you can play. We spent about 2 hours in there playing was a lot of fun...people just setting around reading papers...They had games for all ages. The birds are precious but messy but they are babies...this is the first year we did not have a bird build a nest on our front porch.
It makes my day when you stop by for a visit.
Simply Debbie

Something Nice and Pretty said...

I had the same thing happen on my back porch in a grapevine wreath, the have finally flown away, I just took the nest out today but forgot to look if it was pooped in:) LOL

Annesphamily said...

I love the post! I have been battling birds for two days! We walk around a little pond ( 1 1/4 mile haha) and I try to get shots of the birds, swallows and herons and an assortment of birds I do not know yet. The second I get close they fly away! Buggers! This was so lovely. I am so happy to know you sweet lady. Enjoy the week.

A Cottage Muse said...

Congrats girlfriend...thanks for sharing!!

Jil~Say It With Roses said...

What a darling little story....I am sorry they poopted on your bunny's head, but now you will just have to make a new decoration once the family moves on....


Wisconsin Dells said...

Cute post! Thanks for posting!

Terry @ La Bella Vie said...

Oh this is the cutest little story, even if the bunny does have poop on its head, but it was so worth it!

Patty said...

Sweet! We have babies, too. Ours are Purple Martins and they are in our covered entry right above our porch. They had their little fuzzy heads sticking up today and I took a picture, but from the angle of far below it is really not so pretty.

michelle said...

What a sweet post and sweet little babies, poop and all. :)

Donna said...

Awww! I just love little birdies, and your Robins are adorable! I also love the picture of the grandkids, I am loving that oh so stylish coat with a bow on the back, how cute is that!!!

My Blessed Serendipity Life said...

What a sweet surprise to find the nest and then the baby birds. That is so funny that you told SC that she also pooped in her bed. Too funny! LOL


Blooming Rose Musings said...

How very precious and sweet the little birdies.
You are so right, they grow up so quickly and spread their wings and fly off. I have a nest by my back door and every spring the doves raise their families in the nest. I keep hoping it's the same generation after another.
