This week at Cookie's,
our favorite local restaurant,
the regular patrons aren't the only ones being served.
In the back room, just outside the window,
tucked under a retro green awning,
4 hatchlings are getting their meals from Mom and Dad.
Last week, recently hatched,
they already knew how to order what they wanted off the menu.
They kept their parents busy with their appetite,
and a varied menu ensued.
The babies are noticeably bigger this week, and, with the first feathers sprouting,
they're starting to look a bit like robins.
It won't be long before they're on their own,
but I imagine they'll always carry with them
fond memories of their first meals at Cookies.
