...extra special! (or is it "eggstra" special?)
chirp! says the new little bird hatched from the egg.
Zzzz, says the bird after all that chirping.
Hi, says the bird who is wondering what on earth her momma is doing with the camera.
And for good measure, a bonus "E is for ears" shot:
I whisper into those ears all day long. You are so smart, I tell her. Can you believe you're five weeks old already?
I can't believe it! she says.
She's easily amazed, this one.
The photoshoot: I admit, I had a bit of trouble with this week's letter. We don't have any elephants around here, or eagles, or other wild animals that I wouldn't get Addie near anyway even if we did live near them. So, I browsed around Flickr, and found this adorable shot, which was sort of the inspiration behind the idea. But Addie is no longer that small, that flexible, or that willing to stay asleep in cute poses. So we winged it (ha!).
