I'd suggest it's a, "you don't seriously expect me to believe that?" look.
Whereas, in the first picture posted, it's a, "are you my mom?" look.
Any other opinions? I bet Travis Johnson has seen many baby "looks" like both of those, even if all of his babies looked like Winston Churchill. I'd have said that my first looked like Albert Einstein crossed with Yoda (and yes, I believe I read somewhere that Yoda has Albert's eyes).
Hang in there Elle. I'm sure you appreciate all the "well-wishes", but if we manage to give you some laughs as well, it is supposed to be the best medicine, and babies are a *lot* of work!

Thank you both for responding so quickly, I just hate to see anyone or anything suffer.

As I get into a rhythm into raising my own meats, I have found other ways besides the 2 mentioned. At this point I plan to make lamb stew and pressure can it. This takes no plastic or energy to store it and we enjoy it enough to make it a weekly meal. I plan to do this with the whole animal or all 3 animals.
With deer I make enough sausage to last a year and vac seal it. A good portion goes to jerky which doesn't need plastics.
If someone has options for longterm storage with out vac sealing i would highly consider it though.
