Itty Bitty, Teensy Weensy Calf

As I look out my window at yet another %$#$*@ lovely snow storm I thought I would try to think about warmer days.  Like last week, when the kids and I took a little field trip to visit a teeny tiny calf.  Calves always seem little when they're standing next to cows, but they're bigger and heavier than they look. This little baby was born a bit early, though, and made my 26 and 36 lb kids look like giants.

Isn't she cute?

I have a love/hate relationship with calving season.  It means my husband is gone more and we have less family time.  But, it puts beef on our table (and yours!) and is a sure sign that summer will be here soon.  And signs like that are more than welcome when it's snowing in April and May.  :)


  1. I totally understand your love/hate relationship!! TOTALLY!

  2. HI! Stopping by From New Friend Friday! Soooo stinkin' cute! I had to show my girlie your pictures...she loved them!

  3. Hello - I'm visiting from New Friend Friday @ The Girl Creative!

    That picture of your kids with the teeny tiny calf brings me back to my own childhood. My grandfather had a dairy farm and I had many adventures in helping out as a kid. You are so right in that they look small next to a cow, but aren't that "small." I can remember helping to feed calves with my grandpa and he'd let me hold the bottle. I'd feel myself jerking around because those little calves were STRONG!

    I hope you have a great Friday!

  4. Totally love the photos - it is so cute...we had sheep when I was a child...much smaller.

  5. That calf is adorable! Is it doing all right, if it was so early?
