Nova is a year old today! She was the very first lamb born here, and the only one I’ve gotten to watch being born. I’ve told her that having her own lamb would be a splendid way to celebrate, but she said she’d rather have a crunchy treat party.
“I need lots of crunchies; I’m eating for two!”
Nova’s such a pretty girl. The older she gets, the more she looks like her mother.
Mira gets highly indignant when I feed the other sheep crunchies, even though she won’t eat them herself. I’ve tried giving her some, but she just sucks on them until they’re soggy then spits them out. Nevertheless, she feels that since I’m her “mama”, I shouldn’t feed anyone but her.
“Maaaama! Why are you feeding her? What about meeee?”
She finally got irritated enough to try to run Nova off herself. Tiny little Mira popping Her Royal Woolliness II right on the head was highly entertaining to see. Nova was flabbergasted, though I’m sure she hardly felt the impact. Then Princess barged in and declared that since she did all the work producing Nova, she ought to get all the birthday crunchies. Poor Nova, everybody crashing her party and stealing the spotlight.
“Oh well, it was delicious while it lasted!”
Happy birthday, little Nova!
