179.366 Our first zoo visit of the year, and Baby Jo's first visit ever. Your favorite animals of all, the tigers, came up to the glass, and in all my years of going to the zoo, I've never seen them up close until then. You rode the carousel, we made friends with some little birds in the Rainforest, you tried to pull a kangaroo's tail, and Baby Jo slept through it all. Overall, one of the best zoo visits ever. (June 8)
“I will not play at tug o’ war.
I’d rather play at hug o’ war,
Where everyone hugs
Instead of tugs,
Where everyone giggles
And rolls on the rug,
Where everyone kisses,
And everyone grins,
And everyone cuddles,
And everyone wins.” - Where the Sidewalk Ends
171.366 You love your exersaucer for all of ten minutes at a time. It's interesting that you are most intrigued by the octopus, which always captured your Big Sister's attention too. Speaking of Big Sister, she's tried getting in the exersaucer a few times too, sometimes with you in it! (May 27, 2016)
“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” - Mark Twain
163.366 Little Baby, how you've grown! Already holding your head up so strong and happy to sit in the bumbo for the first time. -Apr 29, 2016 The next day we documented the bumbo feat. You have to suck on your fist and sometimes your thumbs. Then you noticed your sweet, chubby feet, entranced. Of course, Big Sister was jealous and wanted to try out the bumbo too, which got a good fit of giggles.
164.366 We read "Time for a Hug" (my favorite because I get lots of great hugs) and "Giraffes Can't Dance" (Here you are pretending to be an elephant). Then we played "Mr. Bear, Mr. Bear, Are You Awake?", had a tickle fight, and learned how to shake our hair wildly, which is your new favorite because of your amazing bouncy curls which have gotten so long.
