Smile I actually saw her eyes!!

So ever since Mink decided she was a model, she's been doing the "hair over the eyes" look every day. Many times I can't even see half of her eyes anymore!

Anyway, as I was putting her to bed tonight, I took her out to give her nightly cuddles and kisses. Although she's a handfed, she has gone half wild now, so she tolerates the petting and kisses some nights more than other nights.

Tonight when I got Mink out to cuddle with her, I noticed that her "hairstyle" was a little different. I think she was experimenting with hair gel ! She might have gotten the idea from Chewie, since we know he uses hair products . It was up almost completely over her eyes for the first time ever! I hadn't seen so much of her eyes since she was very young. Well not only were here eyes exposed, but they seem to have gotten bigger. Is that possible? lol.

She looked like an adorable little doll with huge, round, glassy, black dots for eyes . I was honestly quite surprised at the size of them. Also that they are still dark. She will be 8 months old the first week of November. I can't even see a light eye ring. Is that unusual?

That's great! About now is when she should be losing her eye rings, so there's nothing to worry about. Aren't there eyes so big and cute?

Thanks mexicoandice, for the information. I'm not 'worried' about the lack of eye ring, just curious and surprised that it hasn't happened yet. I just assumed it would happen at an earlier age. Although I'm secretly disappointed that she's not going to keep the dark eyes. I'm sure she'll be adorable nonetheless .

Mink is such a gorgeous little model, I'm sure she looked ravishing with her gelled feathers showing off her big beautiful dark eyes!

My DF Spangle was showing eye rings at 6 months but the other three all took longer. From thing's I've read 5-9 month's is common and I know a couple of mine were well past 9 months...

I agree she will be adorable with eye rings too...

Their eyes really are so cute and expressive, aren't they?

I guess Mink is still trying to decide what her "signature look" will be.

That's helpful Randy, thanks . Interesting that they say 5 months, and some of yours were well past 9.

Just like kids... my ex's daughter back then was in middle school, and when I saw her class, although all the kids were the same age, they matured at such different rates around that age, that they did not all look the same age, some were big already and some were still little lol.

Yaay! I'm glad you like the new signature.

Maybe she'll try her "new look" again one of these days and you'll have the opportunity to get a picture at that time.

Haha, that's what it is I'm sure. She's experimenting with different looks. She's at that age, however, she hasn't shown any interest in boys yet. Thank goodness! Or maybe it's just that she's not attracted to the scrawny little older man she lives with?

They're so cute sitting on the basket . I figure when she's all done growing out from molting, she'll be ready for her holiday pic all dressed up in her 'adult' outfit for the first time lol. I have some great sig ideas for that!
