Getting Big

Sweetie's twins, Meriden and Dansant, are growing up really fast. They've almost doubled in size in five days:

The sweet potato vine is definitely worse for wear, but we've only been refilling the water globes about once a week to keep from disturbing the nest too much:

Judging by how quickly Stubborn Thing's twins went solo back in May, I think these will probably be the last close shots I get.

Baby birds are just so freaking cool.


  1. Super cute! I love birds, most of the time. :)

  2. They are so adorable!
    Plant or not--I think you'll miss them. :)

  3. Baby birds are cute. And tricky. We've got a nest in our kiwi that a baby robin jumped out of; husband put it back and parents stayed with the nest, but now we keep watching the undergrowth to make sure there isn't a bird hiding in it!

  4. Awww. They are definitely worth one ratty plant. I'm glad you got to watch them grow and that you shared them with us. =o)

  5. Aww, they are soooo adorable! I feel like babies always tend to grow up very cousin's puppy literally grew twice his original size in just a few weeks. My red-eared slider had a growth spurt as well.
