So Thankful: Little Stowaway

We recently brought home a Milkweed plant from our awesome local nursery.  I seriously could spend hours there, and way too much pocket greenery as well, but I digress.  We transplanted our little plant into a bigger pot, and a bit later Olivia called me out to see what she found:

I know, very hard to see (sorry for the blurry shot!), but this is just for size comparison...
 A little, stripey caterpillar- he was so cute! We carefully put him back on the plant so he could do his thing. We checked a few days later and didn't see anything.! Today Olivia found her little friend again. This time, he wasn't so little!

So much bigger!

We are excited to have gotten a cute little Monarch butterfly caterpillar with our plant.  It will be fun to continue to watch him grow, and then transform into a beautiful butterfly.  We hope he stays happy and healthy! We'll keep you posted!


  1. Aren't the stripes the best?! :)

  2. How fun!! I hope you were able to see him become a butterfly.
    Miss you BT. Hope all is well.
