The Week in Pictures

Truman nurses from behind his mom. We haven't ever seen this before!

See that? That is Fall '08 shareholder's yarn growing.



I am so proud when I see Cumin (pictured above) and Bay Leaf eating grass and hay. Usually babies graze along side their mamas who show them what to eat. My boys have to figure it out for themselves. They are wicked smart.


Maybe my favorite picture of the week is this one of Truman napping.

You can clearly see the "grazing line" in this shot.



I am almost positive that Salina and Sicily are cross nursing their lambs.




Bay Leaf


Ike




Here he is nursing. He is barely a third smaller than his mom!


Miss Hannah


There was a lot of basking in the sun going on this week.





Linda and Cayenne

Bay Leaf has the greatest...

ears ever.


Truman and Salina.

What a wonderful post! I cannot believe how HUGE Basil is, and seeing the "whole family" is great :)

Ack! The cuteness! As always, thanks so much for sharing this with us -- love, love, LOVE all the sweet photos.

Shirra said...

Thank you so much for the pictures. Bay Leaf does have the best ears ever! Did Basil get extra vitamins or something? He's so big! These pictures have already made my day:)

There is not a better way to start a morning. Thanks for the pictures.

Oh the ears!
Thanks for the pictures.
They make me want to go stretch out in the sun too.

Jenny said...

Oh, man, I don't know how I keep missing the fact that you've posted, but after an incredibly painful morning, these pictures REALLY cheered me up. Thank you so much!

Love your pictures! The one of Truman napping is now my background! He's just the cutest thing I've seen in a long, LONG time! Thank you for taking your time and taking pictures of these guys for us to gush over!

Diane said...

Yes, thanks and double thanks. How perfect that an expectant mom won the alpaca! Katrina, we MUST have a photo of you in the sweater after baby is born with photos of all Susan's little critters!

Fran said...

Thanks so much for the pics, just as I was thinking "I hope she posted a picture of Linda" there she was. She stole my heart when she was overly pregnant and sheared. Thanks for the fix.

Oh, lordy. I love that picture of sleeping/basking Truman, too ... And, wow, Basil IS huge!

PolarBearCreations said...

I've been having a really lousy day (week), but this pictures gave me a big smile. Thanks!

JoanB said...

Every picture I look at I think "that's my favorite" and then I go to the next one, then that's my favorite, until the next and the next and the next. They're all just grand, but I do agree with you about Truman's napping picture... although Bay Leaf's ear picture... shucks almighty they're just all dang cute. :)

habitual said...

Your photos! I just love 'em......I think my favorite in this series is the sunbathers. And Bay Leaf's ears.

Donna S said...

Oh there all just TOO cute! I wish I had your job (btw, are you hiring?)lol. On my needles: my first sweater.

Truman napping is a picture of true bliss. Thanks for sharing. On my needles, the second sleeve of my second sweater, a Koigu scarf & another scarf for a shop model.

shellzee said...

Your pictures are absolutely wonderful. Thanks for sharing. On my needles right now is a hedgehog and he's not lookin' as cute and cuddly as your guys. Maybe I need to give him ears like Bay Leaf's

cfr said...

I needed a reason to smile today! Thanks Susan! We will be on the island June 30th. Hope to see you all!

Amy said...

What a great post! I now have a facination with lambs! I love the picture of Truman napping--who knew lambs could smile. It made me smile, too!

On my hook now, I have an amigarumi dog (almost finished!). Next, a hat for my 15-month old daughter.

mydogpetey said...

Hmmmm. I wonder what Truman is dreaming of while napping to put that sweet smile on his face.

Perhaps some Chaffehaye?
I LOVE the way that stuff smells!

Hi, your pictures of the week are so cool, a great pick-me-up. I found your site on Ravelry. I'll definitely be back.

My favorite is definitely Truman napping. It is the cutest thing. I love taking pictures of my kids while they're asleep, its the most beautiful, peaceful thing in the world.
I've got a lavendar sweater for my middle daughter on the needles, along with a zig zag scarf that came about from a mistake (but is being worked with remnants), and a dishcloth.
