Spring Babies

I know this has nothing to do with my shop, HollyCraft Originals, but I just had to blog about our little critters we found in our mulberry tree. They are just the cutest little things. 

My husband was doing some cleaning up and happened upon this little Robin's nest:

After a day or so we told our kids about the nest and my son had to show it to his friend. Well, come to find out one of the eggs hatched!

So exciting! We have been trying hard to stay away from the nest so mommy bird can stay with her baby...but you can see in the photo that another egg is starting to crack...

I just had to check this morning, and sure enough we have a second little one!

So sweet! They are getting all of their little fuzzies.  I can see a little cracking going on in the third egg! I am hoping to see it hatch soon!
This is something that we have never seen in our yard and I really hope that nothing happens to these little tweets.

And baby 3 is born! You can really tell who the oldest is in this photo!!

And then there were 4! 

I sneaked a peek today while Momma Bird was on the nest...she was watching me like a hawk!
