Our Very First Overnight Guest

No, we're not sleeping at the "big house" (as my daughter calls it) yet.  But someone is.

Mama mourning dove has two eggs she's sitting on.  This is right outside on the ledge of what will be the playroom.  She's just the sweetest little thing and never moves a feather when we come near to check on her.  I think it's a good sign:)


  1. I definitely think that is a good sign! We currently have a robin nesting with two babies right outside our kitchen window...this is our third time in the same tree. We love that kind of house guest! :)

    I love when birds lay eggs near a home...or in this case, in your home. How fun for your daughter to watch.

  3. your daughter must love seeing that!

  4. So cool! We had some birds make nests between our storm doors and windows as well. They were fun to watch.
