Anticipation

She has been asking for about a year.
My sweet daughter, such a lover of all things furry.
Ever since seeing their little noses twitch and touching their soft fur at a local county fair last summer.
Daddy was hesitant and originally said "no", wanting to wait until she was older.

I guess the soft-spot for his little girl couldn't resist any longer since about a month ago he said "yes" to us getting her a bunny!

I searched and researched all I could about bunnies and breeders and found a very nice breeder and what I hope will be a wonderful little bunny! Library book upon library book has been read by both my husband and myself. I even found an online Rabbit Forum that has been truly helpful in answering all my new-to bunny-ownership questions!

After looking from pet store to pet store and searching all over the World Wide Web, the cage is finally bought and set-up. Food and hay purchased and ready to be poured into bowls. Water bottle and food dish are in its place. A nesting area has been prepared complete with hay hut and fleece blanket that I couldn't resist sewing up for her.

One little girl asks, just about everyday, when the bunny is coming home. {so much for her forgetting about it and it being a surprise!}

A certain little man peeks his head inside the cage, every morning, and asks, "bunny?".

After a month of excited preparedness and much anticipation, the wait is coming to an end.

She is finally allowed to leave her mother and come to live with us on Sunday!

{one of these bunnies is ours. it's hard to tell from this picture which one exactly she is, since they all look alike! more pictures are sure to follow next week!! ooh...I can't wait to cuddle this cutie! i am just as excited, if not more than, my daughter!}

Grandma is taking the kids to lunch after church while my husband and I go and meet the breeder to pick up the newest addition to our family.

The plan is to bring her home, place her in her cage, and await for my daughter to come home. Then really build it up so that my daughter winds up going upstairs to see the bunny waiting in her cage! Cameras will be on and flashing away capturing the first moment she lays eyes on her new, furry, friend.

It is going to be a priceless moment.

Will you stay tuned?

  1. Oooh, how cute and how fun! My sister-in-laws had a bunny when they were younger and absolutely loved it. They make for cute and fluffy pets. Loved that picture.

    I'm sure she will enjoy!
