Ooooh, goodness me she is a weed!! That last pic is hilarious. Definitely too big for the onesie! The outfit in the "chewing the blinds" picture fits nicely though. :)

Yes, she will have to return to her own kind....but she will always remember her human maaamaaa

Just don't be too much of a neurotic weaner. You know your baby is growing up nicely. She'll always love you!

Millie said...

Kind of obvious. I do see she is growing beautiful horns. I could teach her how to play her horns and make beautiful music!

Darla is getting to be a big girl, and still sooooo cute!

I thought of you and Darla when I found this in my recently rediscovered book Ted Malone's Scrapbook:

"ESSAY ON GOATS

A goat is about as big as a sheep if the sheep is big enough. A female goat is called a buttress; a little goat is called a goatee. Goats are very useful for eating up things. A goat will eat up more things than any animal that ain't a goat. My father had a goat once. My father is an awful good man. Everything he says is so, even if it ain't so. That is all I know about the goats." ~ UNKNOWN
