Babies are cute. Animals are cute. Put them together and you have a total explosion of cuteness.
Babies + Animals = Cuteness
Nothing excites my baby quite like a fluffy animal can and when she beams with joy, I can’t help but snap pictures of the cuteness.
One of this little’s favorite things about play dates at her friends Poppy and Alomae’s house? Their free-range chickens that she can stare at out the back window.
Fern loves her Grandma’s kitty Bianca. On Fridays when she spends half of the day over there, she chases the cat around endlessly. Poor Bianca.
Dog ears are almost their own separate animal in Fern’s mind. She is forever trying to grab and pet and pull at poor Marley’s tall ears.
Fern was so excited about this chick that she wanted to squeeze it. Probably not the best idea. But, we did let her get a good, close-up look at the little guy.
She was more excited about seeing the horse than taking the actual carriage ride when we went with her grandparents last month.
On a hike with a friend, we stopped to check out these chickens. Pretty sure she wanted to chase them.
Fern posing precariously close to the cheetah at the zoo. Don’t worry. That’s some really thick glass!
This is our friend Lisa’s little dog Hani. Fern loves him, because he’s just her size.
Sharing a tender moment with her favorite fluffy animal: our German Shepherd, Marley.
Not real, but...
So…this isn’t a real animal obviously, but it was all the same in Fern’s mind. Anything furry and fluffy and this girl is game!
