Tiny Life

Babies amaze me.
It doesn't matter if they're human babies or animal babies... the idea of life in such a miniature thing is incredible.
And let's face it... babies of all shapes and sizes are incredibly cute.
So! Here are three baby pictures of different species.

This is Sigrid, my little Norwegian baby girl cousin. Her eyes are amazing.

Here's Willa, my cat (as a kitten) in mid-yawn. She sleeps in odd positions like this all the time... I woke up this morning to find her half under my covers, with her upper body stretched out, front legs all long and floppy, across my arm. Fast asleep.

And last but not least, a Buff Orpington chick. This chick is now big, fat, and covered in beautiful golden feathers. Her name is Hildegarde. (Or perhaps that's Helga... I really can't tell the difference.)

What adorable baby pictures do YOU have? If you want to share, leave a link in your comment. :)

As a side note: Two incredibly exciting things happened in Etsy-world today. First of all, this photo was featured on the front page - happiness!
Also (*squeals*) I am happy to announce that ALL prints in the shop have been cut down to $20 or lower! Go check it out!

    Would you mind squeezing a photo of Helga in a post as of how she currently looks? It would be very interesting to compare the 'before and after.'
    Babies grow so fast!
