>Birth Announcement


Posted by Nadie
Twin girls arrived about 4 and 4.30pm respectively. A nice quick delivery [ about an hour from start to finish ] with mum and bubs all doing well. The girls are currently bonding with mum / sleeping off their first feed. Poor Robbyn has been banned from the goat shed for the time being and it’s pouring so she’s been duly bribed with her favourite food to try and sweeten the deal.
Ruby, the smaller of the two, arrived first. She is a beautiful strawberry blonde girl with white on her head, belly and ankles. We thought she was all we were getting but, as we were finishing up the first feed, I noticed a foot hanging out and two minutes later Rowan arrived. Rowan definitely takes after Rosie in the looks department, although both girls have mum’s straight nose as opposed to dad’s roman one. Rowan is mostly white with caramel red on the back of her head and a stripe down her back. She has mum’s alert ears and Ruby has dad’s floppy rabbit ears.

The other ‘grandparents’ [ PND and Brenda ] heard the commotion and came over to see Ruby and to help with the clean up but left just before Rowan arrived.
