My cell phone rang at 11PM last night - luckily, I had decided to put it on the nightstand, right next to my ear. Otherwise, I would have missed the crickets (my ringtone). Sage had her kids!! Two doelings!!! The LLF Female Mojo Rules!!! The midwife - extraordinary herdswoman that she is - had been checking on her every half hour and, of course, when her back was turned and it started to pour, Sage went into gear. She said that she was inside, with the television on, rain hitting the roof and STILL heard the kids. Apparently, they inherited their mother's vocal chords.
I present Sage and her Stinkin Cute Kids:
At first glance, they are identical, although on closer inspection, one has black ears and one has white ears. They are beautiful, with great confirmation and ADORABLE. Sage let me pick them up - although, after 10 minutes I think she thought I was not going to give them back. She was very close to being right. She even let me give her a good back scratch without bolting out the door. Chickie, although dazed, is being the perfect Uncle. Everyone is nursing well and Sage is a terrific first-time mother. I am dazed myself.
