What a beautiful way to start the day.

I turned on lambcam as I sat down with my first cup of coffee. I thought for a minute I was hallucinating. Daisy was being really strange….ohhhhhhhhh she’s having a baby! Great pics!

Alabama is a big boy – but so, so cute.

So glad I turned on the Lambcam this morning just in time to see the new little (big) guy! What a unusually happy Monday.

He is so adorable!!

11 Kristin McCurry May 11, 2009 at 7:59 am

Stars DID fall on Alabama! What an adorable little guy. The pic with Erin is my favorite. He looks like he’s sheepish (ha!) and apologizing to his mom for being so big!

12 --Deb May 11, 2009 at 8:13 am

Welcome, Alabama!

13 Heather May 11, 2009 at 8:23 am

Ohhhhhh! He’s precious. What a handsome guy. And I’m impressed at how big he is. He looks a few days old already!

14 Kate May 11, 2009 at 8:30 am

15 Lisa Stockebrand (aka. lasdcm) May 11, 2009 at 8:33 am

Look at that face, what a cutie!

16 Erin May 11, 2009 at 8:53 am

I don’t think I’ve ever seen anything as cute as that!

17 Heidi May 11, 2009 at 8:56 am

Yeah Daisy, your brilliant! I can’t get over how much he looks like Truman!

18 Diane May 11, 2009 at 9:10 am

…Thought I saw Erin toweling off somebody this morning! Nice looking little guy… Congrats!!! They’re all so cute…

19 Leslie from California May 11, 2009 at 9:15 am

He is so cute! How is momma doing? Thanks so much for a wonderful way to start the week!

20 Patty P May 11, 2009 at 9:32 am

Awwww, now isn’t he just the cutest thing! Cute lamby pictures make Monday morning sooo much better!

21 Maureen J May 11, 2009 at 9:34 am

What a face! So photogenic. I thought I really favored the floppy ears of the kids, but those perky straight out ears are pretty cute, too.
Welcome, Alabama. Your aunties and uncles are watching.

22 Dragan May 11, 2009 at 9:35 am

What a sweet, goofy face :). His fleeces looks really interesting .

23 Jennifer May 11, 2009 at 10:06 am

Glorious, gorgeous, handsome Alabama …. kisses to you

24 Maggie May 11, 2009 at 10:25 am

Alabama is perfect! Both the name and the munchkin :). Of course, with the World’s Cutest Sheep tm as his pops, how could he not be?

25 Joan B May 11, 2009 at 10:29 am

I was up way earlier than usual this morning so turned on the lamb cam to see what was going on…and there he was… Alabama… all cute and trying to stand up… great start to a mundane Monday morning :)

26 Cindy T. May 11, 2009 at 10:41 am

My gosh, he’s half grown! What a big man!!

27 Linda S. May 11, 2009 at 10:53 am

Way to go Truman!
(and Daisy too–she did all the work, after all)

28 Sarah May 11, 2009 at 11:09 am

Those Babydoll Southdowns have the CUTEST noses. They remind me of my favorite teddy bear from when I was little!

29 turtle May 11, 2009 at 11:10 am

That’s one cute accident! I love his face.

44 Jessica May 11, 2009 at 10:00 pm

Okay. IIRC, Truman is Cormo right? And Daisy is Babydoll Southdown?

Trying to figure out what breed (not so)little Alabama is…
