    Yep, my darling baby PP's are now SIX MONTHS OLD!!! :hello2:  :eek:ccasion16: :eek:ccasion15: :eek:ccasion18:

    Who would have believed that they could have made it this long after their rocky start?  For those of you who don't know their story, click here ~ http://www.freewebs.com/beachnut627/theants.htm

    Their names from largest to smallest are:  Sparks, Kirby, Dottie, & Sprinkle

    Here is their six month journey to the life of ALMOST micros.  You will have to click the pictures & enlarge to really get a view of them:

    Two of the ants (Sparks on right & Sprinkle on left) when they arrived, August of 2005:

    Sparks is ALMOST the size of the two mini-micros shown here.  The micros are MUCH smaller than the rest of my micros.  Their shells are about the size of dimes, while most micros are in shells the size of nickles.  MY BABY IS GROWNING UP!  :sad2:

    That is awesome!  It is amazing that they were able to make it through.  You must be an amazing crabby mom to have helped them to survive and make it to six months.  I am looking forward to their first birthday!  :hello2:
