Is he not the most beautiful butterfly you've ever seen? [Maybe I'm just a bit partial.]
Now that we're old hands at raising caterpillars, we've taken on another. Since finding Mr. Grover last Thursday, he has tripled in size, and is eating through as many leaves as we can provide.
We just hope Mr. Grover can thrive as well as his older brother.
As for the cocoon that is my growing belly, I just had a sonogram showing that this little Mr. is already weighing in at three and a half pounds. He is above average, hence the extra large belly. I was hoping this would push my due date up a bit, but those doctors won't give a pregnant lady a break, or at least false hope! I got some new pics of my baby, though, and I can't help but smile each time I look at them [which has been about a hundred times today.] I can't wait to meet this big boy, even if it means waiting a bit longer.
