Lulu Lollipop is a new mom!

Lulu had her babies January 11th at 1pm. I had gotten back from visiting some women in town and went out to check on the girls, yet again, Lulu was laying down so I got a closer look and she was pushing a baby out. So I ran back inside grabbed my birthing gear and ran back to her. She pushed first baby out with no issues and started cleaning her immediately a little black and white doe; Licorice looks just like Lulu's mom Lafawnduh. Lulu got up and was cleaning her off some more and I thought it looked like she was still in labor but she was standing acting fine. Then she laid back down and started grunting here was coming number two! She did even better with the second one. Another little girl a little mini version of Lulu. This time Lulu laid there for a while but she seemed to have settled so I was trying to decide if there was a third or if she was done. Sure enough after she cleaned Buttercup off she stood again and there was the afterbirth. She did so well I was so proud and the little babes latched with no problems and Lulu is very attentive. She is such a good mommy and I am so happy with that because she is a little skittish and I wasn't sure how she was going to react about babies but she is perfect. Marshmallow should be kidding within a week as well and I am so excited to see what her babies look like because she is so much lighter than Lulu.
