Elephants

Beachplants(Z11)November 21, 2012

We have been looking for Ellies again, and I thought I would share a few with you! I have been a little less active, but I have learned that I am going to be a first time dad! So late in the game our lives are about to change from next year!

Anyway, here they are!

Anyone see a Ellie take a bath? NO, well here us a sequence of pictures...Our actor is a young elephant

so, first, the belly

then the face

more face, head and neck

now for sides

other side

behind the ears as mom showed

other ear

Sjoe, no we are hungry - lets go look for a nice "brunch"!

Hope you enjoy!

What a wonderful site.... thank you so much for sharing and Congratulations. May all of you be healthy and content. Don't know how "late" things are but I had my last child when I was 44 and I have been so fortunate to have had 21 years of shear bliss!!!!!!

Thanks, biker 44 is about right! First sonar tomorrow!

Mara, it is, but there are paths as well - but the ellies do not really care if they want to walk they do. We know when they are close - lots of broken branches and heaps that would make a poodle vanish!! LOL!

Say Hello to Peanut! That's his/her pet name for now. LOL! (9 weeks, strong heartbeat)

What wonderful pics. I love elephants. How cool to see them in their natural habitat. Congratulations on your wife's pregnancy. I was 42 and my DH 49 when we had our last child. It will keep you young, although you might occasionally feel like you could be the parent of some of his or her friend's parents when they're school age. lol

Congratulations, Rian! Our girls are 7 years and 14 months, both provide us endless joy, amongst other things. I wish you and your wife a healthy term and good luck.

Nice elephants.

Congrats! Loved your elephant pics, too, thanks for sharing!

I still call my son peanut although he is almost 8 now. My first thought when he was born (besides "ouch!") was that he's no bigger than a peanut. Obviously that has changed, but the name has stuck.

Karyn, I agree. This little guy "stole" my 37th birthday (whew!) so I'm one of the oldest parents at class functions. ...but as they age and I remain 36, it's all good, right!?

I may look more like granddad by high school, but hey, at least I will have fun! We where both big babies! I may not be very welcome for a month either side of the birth! LOL!
