We have a new bird living in our backyard. We discovered a small nest in our tiny evergreen tree in the back yard about 2 weeks ago. We then discovered a blue egg in it, then a couple days ago we found a tan colored egg. We were a little confused as to what was going on. We thought it was a robins' nest and learned that they can lay blue and tan eggs and the can lay them a few days apart. We've never seen a bird in this nest. Last night I noticed this bird fighting with two black birds and hopping around on our back fence near the evergreen tree.

I looked him up and he's an Eastern Blue bird. He's a little larger than a finch and has longer legs. I looked up what colored eggs they lay and they are same color as Robin eggs. Now it makes sense why the nest is so small.

Here's the nest tucked inside the tree.

The nest on our deck that I took pictures of a while ago is now empty. We came home one night to find the two eggs that were inside on the ground. The nest was a bit messed up too. Not sure if another bird tried to take over the nest and dumped out the eggs or maybe there was some kind of fight. So we just left the nest up there. Maybe some other bird can use it.

I caught Violet unrolling all the toilet paper. I left the door open and she took it upon her self to try and wash her hands and play with the toilet paper. She's crying because I snuck up on her and startled her.

I made her put the roll back on.

She put the roll back on but shoved all the toilet paper, that was still attached to the roll, in the trash can just below the toilet paper roll.


This morning while sitting at a stop light I heard,
"go mama, go mama geen". Apparently she was in a hurry to get to school.
