Saturday Critters - Dove babies and a baby girl is born 💖

Remember my post about the doves in my garden two weeks ago? 
Yesterday I went to the backyard to water the garden and looked up at the tree and noticed two baby doves in the nest.

For more Saturday Critters from around the world check Eileen's blog.



Two baby doves in the nest
Our second grandchild, was due on the 1st April, but last night (22nd March) my son called to announce little Eleanor had been born, with 52cm (1,70ft) and 2,880kg (6,35 pounds) by cesarean section. 
I visited Mom and baby in hospital this afternoon and they are doing well and might be discharged on Sunday.

  Have a lovely weekend.

  2. Dearest Sami,
    Congratulations with the early arrival of your granddaughter! Eleanor looks very peaceful in your arms!
    Baby doves are cute too but nothing compared with a human baby.
    Hugs,
