First some background. We celebrate May 8th as Gabriel's birthday. It's really the anniversary of the day I found her by the side of the road. The vet thought she was around a year old, so we adopted it as her official birthday.

We didn't want to upset her, so we took Gabriel and went back inside. Unfortunately, when we looked for them later, they were gone. We prayed she had a safe delivery, but didn't see either mother or baby around. However, in honor of the baby being born on Gabriel's 'birthday', we named it Gabriel Jr.
Fast forward 10 days later when I was lying down with a bad headache. The exact moment that I got up, I saw the tiniest baby deer enter our yard and lay down in front of our bedroom window. There's no doubt that it's Gabriel Jr. S/he stayed for about half an hour before leaving. I'm sure mom was close by, but I didn't want to go outside and scare either of them. This isn't the greatest picture as I had to take it from inside the house. To give you an idea of proportion, this deer is about the size of my 22lb cat, but with much longer legs.
