(Astrophysicists are, of course, innately adorable. Baby goats only make them more so.)

So, as I said, we got us some cute.

Jessie finally kidded early Monday morning, giving us a solid ten baby goats, five does and five bucks. And on Thursday while celebrating one of my best friends' birthdays, we set them almost all out on parade (we ran out of kids to hold them before we ran out of kids to be held): (From left to…

I was planning to whine a little. You see I got back from Maryland and I was really, really tired. Got up at 4am after a late night to get to the train the first night. Four hours sleep the second night, because I was (you pity me, right?) drinking wine with Dmitry Orlov, Megan Bachman, John…
These were taken before the 18 inches of snow that fell the other day, so you can actually see the ground, but the scene is still basically the same - white, with scattered critters. We're all definitely starting to dream of spring! The creek in winter Asher at the Creek Isaiah, finding…

Ah yes, very adorable! My kids are sitting here begging me for baby goats.

Uh...aren't baby goats also called kids?

I c wut u did ther...

Ahhhhh! My heart is melting! I can't believe they seem smaller than the cats. I mean, intrisically I know this is possible, but STILL!

Oh, that brings back memories. My Dad raised goats, for milk, when I was a young. I fell in love with the kids. He begged me not to name them. He said if I named them he would not have the heart to sell them. So, of course I named them. I played with them all summer long. My Dad, being the softy he is couldn't sell them. Chip, Dale and Cindy (triplets)stayed with him for years.

OMG look at the little hoooooooves!

Dying from all the cuteness!

I'm convinced there is nothing on earth - not kittens, not puppies, not chickies or duckies - as cute as baby goats. My friend Helen has an inordinate number of kids this year and the cuteness factor is so off the scale that it hurts to go visit. It's hardly believeable that my voice can go up that high when I see them. Squeeeee! Indeed!

You goat-pusher, you. My cruel husband keeps saying we can't get goats. Not even when I showed him the goat and cat picture, which he admitted was great.

Your boys are adorable. Your husband is handsome. Even your housemate is pretty cute. And then you add BABY GOATS.

Cute beyond words! These pics warmed my heart and made me smile. Thanks for posting!

Damn Girl! That's a whole lotta cute goin' on!

you're right - they are adorable, all of them :)
