A sweet little addition to our family.
Look what we found wandering around in our back yard recently.
Yes, we have a new little baby turtle. Oronzo has had a male turtle for years and just last year he got a female turtle. Apparently they "hooked up" quickly and this baby turtle was the result of that union. We found the turtle egg shell remnants buried in a shallow hole under the shade of a tree in our back yard.
It's too soon to tell if this baby is a boy or a girl, but Snuggle Bug refers to it as a boy. When asked what Snuggle Bug wants to name "him" he comes up with a different name nearly every day. So, for now, we're just calling him "baby turtle".
He's the cutest!
