"Christmas waves a magic wand over this world,

Hi dearest friends,

Here is your AWE moment for today.


Her eyes are beautiful. Most babies measuring 5 ft. would be considered big, but new born giraffe, ‘Margaret’ at Chester Zoo, UK is seen as unusually small for her species. She is one of the smallest giraffes ever born at Chester Zoo, but pint-sized Margaret will soon be an animal to look up to.

Little Margaret, who is the first female Rothschild giraffe born at the zoo, is being hand-reared by her dedicated keepers. The first calf for six-year-old mum Fay, Margaret, who was born two weeks early, tipped the scales at just 34 kilos (75 lbs.) and is a mere 5 ft. tall.

Tim Rowland's, team leader of the Giraffes section, said: 'Margaret is one of the smallest giraffe calves we have ever seen. Fay isn't the largest of giraffes and Margaret was also early which might go some way to explaining her size. 'Margaret was having difficulty suckling so our keeping team are now hand-rearing her.

Her Keeper is hiding her milk bottle.....

Found it!!
More please .........
That was yummy .....
Thank you for my bottle!
What a beautiful and gentle little soul, just look at those incredible eyes.

"Mommy has always loved Giraffes and she has passed that love on to me. If you've followed my blog for long, you know that many of my stuffies are giraffes. By know you also know that Mommy's little fella is a master destuffier. BUT!! Weenie knows better than to mess with my giraffes and my pink Elephant."

Time for morning nap........{{{huggies}}}........Mona
