Yes, we are THAT neighbor. We love to feed our outdoor friends, especially in the winter when the squirrels and deer do not have a lot of food. This is more my idea than Jeff's but I think he is a closet winter friend lover too. I don't feel too badly about it because we keep the food in the woods where they basically hang out anyway. One of the reasons that we try to feed the deer in the woods is to avoid this:
I caught this brave little guy eating our new landscaping on Monday morning. Typically once the deer spot us watching them, they dart immediatly back into the woods. Not this little one, he let me take his picture for ten minutes as he proceeded to devour this bush. After he had a nice little feast, he proceeded to walk to the other front bed. I had to finally break down and scare him away. I knocked on the window which I thought would cause him to go running scared towards the woods. Not this deer. He just stares at me, cocks his head back and forth, and proceeds to eat another bush. I may have to try my neighbors suggestion by puttig out bars of Irish Spring Soap in our flower beds. She swears it works for them. I had to knock on the window a few more times until he finally jogged into the back yard to join this little party:
Can you see the huge doe standing on her hind leggs eating out of our bird feeder? Jeff purposely tried to tie it high enough this year due to losing two bird feeders last winter to our furry friends. Apparently they will stop at nothing.
On the baby front, I had my D&C yesterday. It was pretty uneventful and I feel absolutely fine physically. I didn't even have any cramping so I feel my doctor did a great job again, as usual. I definetly have to give him credit with everything, I do believe that he will get us to where we want to go one way or the other. We had enough tissue to get analyzed so we will know in a few weeks what caused this baby not to grow properly. Based on the test results, we may do more tests. I am scared to death and of course fear the worst that my eggs are all chromosomally abnormal. I need to keep telling myself that outcome would be rare and is more than likely just the bad timing of this specific sperm and egg. Thanks again to everyone for all your throughts and prayers, it really means a lot to read all of your wonderful comments.
