The Baby Goes Bump
By Beth Beutler
  

1     Thump, thump, thump.

3     Thump, thump, thump.

She rounded the corner and almost ran into her goat, who was busy digging in the dirt. Since he wasn't near the house, he probably wasn't butting his head on the wall. Grandma Wilson still didn't know where the noise came from.
 
5     Thump, thump, thump.
