In the front door and up the stairs I bounded saying, "She's having her piglets!" The house came alive and various kids bolted out of their beds and into their boots. I grabbed O and put him on my back and headed back down, just about as fast as I had come up. I Yo, his twin sister, was hot on my tail in her sleepwear (a t-shirt and undies!!) and a pair f pink boots!! I also managed to call Stacy (my nephew's wife and the local pig expert) and told her it was time.
When we got back to Mama Pig, she had birthed the first piglet - a little red girl. Excitement was in the air as she began to push her second one out. By now, there were 9 kids present in various outfits and Stacy was running down the trail (with some blood on her hand from the wipeout she had just suffered!). Running over these Oklahoma rocks can be quite treacherous.
Over the next few hours, I went back and forth along the 800 foot path to the barn to get various supplies - a bulb syringe, more rags, dental floss, water bottles and some food (for the human watchers).
Here are a few pics to show the excitement of the morning. The first pic is Todahyah with the first piglet:
