It'a A Boy...or a Girl

The ducklings have hatched. My husband went out to check on them as he always does and comes back in, "I'm a father!" which really wasn't news as both of his boys were in the same room as us. We saw three of them in the crook of the tree. The momma duck has tolerated our looks and glances well. The babies are a little more adventurous and actually let my husband pet them. But yesterday afternoon, when he went to show them to a neighbor, they were gone already. We live near a creek and figured that she took them down there. They were already two days old, we figure. I'm just glad we didn't have to haul out the Baby Names book.
