If you're not that into science, this might gross you out.

Our neighborhood is called duck creek, and as the name implies there are tons of ducks and a creek in the area. Generally the ducks stay in the creek or alongside of it, but at times they can be found roaming the streets of the neighborhoods. I think it's a really neat place to live because of this, and it's a great learning experience for Hunter at this age - he's added the word duck ("duh") to his vocabulary this past week.
...
Well one of the female ducks has taken up residence under one of the slides at this tiny little playground area that we sometimes go to. (Hunter would actually prefer the big playgroud across the street, but I'm so obsessed with this duck, that we've been going to the little one lately.) Why am I obsessed? Because she is nesting! Okay. I have no idea what the proper term is for this, but basically she's made a little nest for her bazillion eggs so that they can stay warm before they hatch.
...
Y'all! I don't know why, but this is so exciting to me! Here's our new friend on her nest...

And here is Hunter pointing her out to me and yelling "duh! duh!" (He hasn't quite caught on that this duck is the sole purpose for our visits to this particular playground, and that I have been scoping this duck out from the second we got there.)... And here is my favorite thing ever...Look at all of those eggs! I can see parts of like 6 eggs in that tiny area, so I can't even imagine how many are under there.

**Sorry if this is the lamest post I've ever written, but I am really excited about those little ducklings! Definitely more excited than my son.

Wow...I am so proud of you! There was a time in your life when you were so girly, you would have wanted no part of that. I can't wait to see all of you tomorrow. I must say I was a little disappointed that Hunter was trying to say Noah in the previous post and not Nana... : )

That is awesome! You are so funny. I wonder why she would choose such a public spot. Will you keep us updated?!

It seems my language skills need to be strengthened, because I totally can not read your information, but I think this is a good BLOG
