Guess What?

We have a new addition to our family!

Our new butterfly emerged while I was at Target on Friday morning. I think he wanted to go, I mean, who wouldn't?

We have enjoyed watching him for the last couple of days. We feed him sugar water, and took him on a road trip to Grandma and Grandpa's to show them our lovely Painted Lady.

I asked the twins what they wanted to name him, and they said, Food. I thought that was weird, but in further questioning, I realized they wanted to name him food because in the book, "The Very Hungry Caterpillar", the caterpillar eats LOTS of food.

I thought the name Food was boring, so we turned it into Comida (spanish for food), and it has a little flair and still is what the kids picked out!

I think it was amazing to watch a caterpillar go through his life cycle. I will be sad to see Comida go.. we will let him go on Sunday, so he can live out the rest of his 14 day life in happiness.
