The kids saw a baby squirrel hanging around the yard, unfortunately the way they found it was that one of Max's little friends accidentally ran over it with his bike. He seems o.k. and has taken a liking to the kids. Hannah and I saw him in the tree and went to check on him and he came down the tree and followed Hannah up the steps to the front door! He thought he was coming inside! It is so stinking cute I just had to share some photos with you! Here is a photo of brothers and sisters = best friends. Max and Elijah and Hannah and Juliet all posing with their new squirrel friend that they have named Nuts.
Hannah wants to keep him, but she has a mom who really doesn't want a wild little critter otherwise known as a small rodent as a pet. Plus he has his own family, right?
I have never seen anything like this, Hannah has tried to put it in a tree out back but he keeps following her around the yard... or that's how the story goes!
I mean how cute is that face??? too cute that's how cute!
On a side note, although Hannah wants to keep him the most, (Max has since gone about his business while Hannah and Juliet are researching what to feed him) she will not touch him with her bare hands! she really is her fraidy-cat mothers daughter! :0
Thanks for stopping by! Theresa xoxo
