Saturday Laughs with my One Year Old

5. I was trying to get Cupcakes to smile in front of this peacock, but she preferred to do Cheerleader Face.  I love peacocks. 4. I was cracking up watching Tootsie Roll cuddle up with this pillow.  I would have loved to have gotten a video, but I just couldn't get my camera out in time.  Trust me, it was adorable. 3. Well he's finally a year old, and just in time... these pictures were getting very difficult to take. 2. I painted tiger stripes on Cupcakes in the Family Play Zoo.  [This … [Read more...]

First #ZooDay of the Year! {Photo Dump}

Have I mentioned that I love going to the zoo?  It's true.  It's one of my favorite things: outside, awesome animals, kids LOVE it, and because my lovely mom gets me a membership for my birthday every year, it's pretty much free.  We *did* buy those ridiculously expensive souvenir cups for Hobbs and myself on our first visit, but that was only because we can bring them back every time in 2015 to get free refills all over the zoo.  Since we go so often, we'd be losing money NOT buying them.  I'm … [Read more...]

All the Babies, Sunglasses Swiper & other Saturday Laughs

5. Tootsie Roll stood up using his walkie toy and then practically raced across the room with it.  You can tell by the adorable sounds he's making that he was QUITE proud of himself! Unfortunately, Instagram won't let me embed the video (grr), so if you want to see it you'll have to click this link: Baby Runs Across Room!  Sorry.  But I promise it's worth it! 4. This picture is funny because we were trying so hard to take a family zoo picture... which is tricky when you have to do it … [Read more...]

Last Mommy-Daughter-Only Huzzah

There was a very low kid count at the daycare center on Good Friday so I wanted to take Cupcakes out for a fun time just her and I before Nickname-to-be-Determined (VOTE IN MY POLL --->) is out! I'll admit, I was very anxious about taking her to this huge zoo by myself, 9 months pregnant.  But we have a membership (FREE zoo admission!) and I just had to do it.  So I packed us a lunch in a light cross-body purse and found directions on the GPS. I accidentally providentially got in line … [Read more...]
