Garnet had twins too!!!!! A boy and a girl and the girl was born first and is bigger, just like with Topaz's kids. So funny how it works out like that. The girl is the beautiful red one which is super exciting because the reds are my mom's favorite color. I've been hoping we would have a red one for that reason. I know color isn't important, but if it makes my mom happy (she likes to admire them from afar) it makes me happy. She always jokes that she can't tell them apart or remember all of their names, but this red girl will be easy to spot in a crowd of Boers hehe. Speaking of names... we're having trouble deciding. Check out our choices at the bottom of the post and please help me decide! Here are the rest of the pictures. Sorry they are bad cell phone pictures. I will have to get the camera out eventually...
These guys went straight to nursing!
She has a patch of white on her forehead, on her belly and on some of her feet.
She is so gorgeous!
She was about to fall asleep on her feet.
Garnet looks tired too.
The boy (again we won't name because we will be selling) is super confident.
He's all tuckered out.
Love this picture.
She finally decided to lay down for a nap.
Okay below are a couple of pictures of the little girl in the sunshine so you can see what her color really looks like. I know you aren't supposed to take them away from their mom on the first day, but I had to run her inside for my mom to see (she hurt her knee and can't walk to the barn). I took her right back to Garnet and they have bonded and are all doing great.
You can see the white on her feet too.
Okay here are the name options. We all have different favorites, but I'm not going to say which is which so I don't influence you guys. These are all gems to stick with our theme. Coming up with gem names is more difficult than I thought so we are going to change up the theme each year. I can't wait to name next year's kids.... it is going to be a surprise though.
Tourmaline (Tori for short)
Alexandrite (Alex or Lexi for short)
Larimar (Lora or Lari for short) Lari would be pronounced like Lori or Laurie
So which name do you like? I'm calling her Red right now so PLEASE help me name her before that sticks.....
P.S. She actually had them on Thursday. The male weighed 6.8 pounds and the girl weighed 7.6 pounds. They are quite a bit bigger than Topaz's kids were at birth (6 and 6.1 pounds).
