@LoveMojitos -

Thanks for thisSmiley Happy

I went to watch and gosh April, its a good thing I didn't stay up all night waiting last night which

I did a few years ago!

I love watching her and Ollie nuzzle each other. Or when she gives herself a straw shower lol! She looks a little dazed sometimes, staring off into space.

I remember Ollie would pace back and forth a lot and felt so sorry for him. And April doesn't seem to have any windows. Maybe that is on purpose for some reason?

Anyway, their cages seem so small but I know they are taken care of.

@on the bay - April has windows. 


Why is it, when I have a 50/50 guess at something, I'm always 100% wrong?

When is the projected due date? Ollie paces like a new daddy-to-be.

@OKPrincess - apparently any time now. She’s showing lots of signs that she could be close to delivering.

 

They had originally thought the end of March but they think it will be much sooner than that.

April and Oliver sure are enjoying their ceiling bags for the past hour or so!

So cute.

@LoveMojitos -

Thank you for that information!

I just read that what I called April staring off into space, they call it "stargazing."Heart
