Obsessed with the girls

I must say we are having quite the time with the girls lately. For example, we have started talking to them more often than is probably healthy. And, call us crazy, but we refer to ourselves as mom and dad to them. I think we have officially lost it! (I like to think that we are just practicing for what someday will hopefully be a time when we are a mom and a dad to something more along the lines of a human!) Another example that we are crazy about the girls is that I woke up the other day and found that they no longer lived in one box, but a two box "condo" if you will (hhhmm, I wonder what my husband was doing last night?!). This is quite palatial compared to what they used to live in and it gives them a lot more room to roam and get out of the heat if need be.

The newest thing that the girls like to do is fly. Now, one might ask, fly? at a week old? and I am here to tell you yes. They like to practice flying across the box, up a few inches in the air, and on top of various things in their condo. Pretty soon we are going to need something over top over their condo to keep them from flying right out of there! If you don't believe me, here are two examples:

Also noteworthy is the amount of feathers they have gained in a weeks time. They have many feathers on their wings and are gaining them in the hind end as well. It truly is amazing to watch these tiny things grow up. I am continually reminded of how amazing God's creation is; and the creativity that God put into even the smallest things, like chickens, and into the details, like chicks going from fluff to feathers.
