Hope for a Little Lamb

Happy Monday!
While the temperatures are no longer high 70's/80's,
{oh it's just 32 degrees, nbd,wth??}
 Spring is in full effect here in Upstate New York.
If I haven't mentioned it before,
I married into the coolest family ever.
I love all of Joe's relatives and always 
enjoy the time we spend together.
We went to Joey's Grama's house yesterday for 
Pasta Sunday.
Ziti with cheese just oozing all over.
Homemade sauce.
Sausage.
Meatballs.
Pork ribs.
Chicken cutlets.
Pitehs, or however you spell these
delicious little fried bites of heaven with asparagus.
Red vino.
Espresso & almond cookies.
Yes, going there is always a treat!
The sheep had their babies 
but one little runt has been neglected by its mom.
So sad.
 Notice Holly's curiosity!
So of course, we spent some time trying to get it
to nurse from its mama.
So we carried the little lamb back out to the barn
to see if we could get them to re-connect.
Joe told me to let Holly go and run around 
{with the sheep}
Clearly that was not happening on my watch.
The guys had to hold the mama still
so that the little guy could nurse.
 He did drink some, but then went and laid down.
He's so much smaller than the other two babies.
The action shot {bottom right} shows how the other lambs
kept trying to nurse and not let the little one {bottom left}
eat anything.
Here is Big Papa
the "father" to all the lambs.
Holly was quite fascinated with him!
He is from a local farm/petting zoo
so he is really friendly!
 We brought the baby back up to the garage
where, Grams fed him some warm goats milk.
If anyone can revive this little guy,
it'd be Grams.
So, we intervened a little bit,
but nature has to run its course.
I am definitely hoping this little one makes it!
Hope your Sunday was as special as mine. 
Yes dear, if you make goofy faces, 
then that is what I'll post.
