Slimey Stats - Day 21

Okay, so Slimey has been a chrysalis for almost 16 days - since October 2nd I think. We've had him in a jar on our kitchen counter for 21 days.

I looked in on him a few times a day. I'm a little obsessed, I know.

Yesterday I held up the jar and the brown chrysalis moved. I freaked out!!! But it was really just me moving the jar. Rats! It's never going to come out of there, is it?

Anyway, it looks to me like it's getting a bit fatter and the wings are really formed under there now. Still pretty amazing. I'll keep ya posted.

any word on when he's supposed to come out? The Very Hungry Caterpillar only stayed in his cocoon for two weeks!

I KNOW! We just read that book the other night and I thought...hmmmm. I hope it's soon. It's hard to tell if he's even alive anymore. I guess if he was dead he wouldn't look the way he does...I hope.
