My brother and his family welcomed a new bouncing baby to their brood today — or should I say, a new jumping and kicking baby. My sister-in-law explains, "This little spotted cutie was a complete surprise. We were all packed up in the car, heading out for a hike when we saw this little critter in the pasture. What?! We weren't even sure if these ewes were pregnant! Well, that answered that question. The lamb is about three hours old in these pictures."
We look at these photos and think these had to be the most fun photo shoots ever. Who doesn't love playing with small, cute, furry animals? Here are highlights from Spring's bounty of models+animals bonding for some gorgeous editorial. Click our slideshow to see.
How precious is this baby lamb?! I love the scampering through the house. See if Bee ever comes to play with the camera and watch the video below. Happy Spring!
