So first we will have to look again at the awe-inspiring cuteness of the babies. The little girl is definitely taller, and she is MUCH faster! They run and chase through the pen and all he can hope it so watch her flash by.
Jodi is now a wonderful mother who loves her babies all to bits. She is now nursing BOTH babies at the same time on a regular basis. I'm watching her milk supply, and she is blown up like a dairy cow all the time (alpacas generally have very small udders that look more 'swollen' then dairy-ish). I've never seen an alpaca with such a BIG udder! So it doesn't seem like nursing 2 is bothering her any, and Pixie doesn't seem to mind her baby double-dipping since she regularly nursed Jodi's baby until she got the hang of it.
Speaking of Miss Momma Jodi Milk Cow here she is cooling off in this miserable heat we've been having! As soon as the pool was out, before I had a chance to put the hose in, she was already in the pool laying down like this! So once I had the hose in she was in hog heaven!
And of course Pixie spent quite a bit of time in too, but she got out constantly to chase babies. It seems they have divided the baby-duties into Jodi doing the feeding while Pixie does the guarding and baby-sitting.
Babies spend a lot of time out running and chasing each other. Today the little boy discovered chickens and ducks, and had a blast running through the flock scattering them in panic. They quickly learned to avoid him completely of course.
And away from 'paca cuteness I am still drowning in cuteness everywhere else. The other day I got this pic of everyone sun bathing together.
Daisy had spent quite a bit of time at this point grooming Possum's head. He tolerates it for the prime sun position. After the picture she collapsed on top of him for a few hours of sun bathing, heat supplied to both sides. And I love the look on Ding's face, she's just so glad someone else is occupying Daisy for the moment!
The same window later on, this time occupied by Angel and Milo. Angel loves to hook her toes in the window to effortlessly sun her belly.
Sharing the cuteness from soggy Kewanna!
