Zoo Day!

This giraffe has a sign that says not to climb...yet everyone does, and everyone takes pictures.
Getting comfy in the stroller.
Waiting to see Sparky the Seal.
Snacks and Sparky.
More walking. Richard thought walking on this slippery surface (it rained on us all day) was SO FUN! He kept throwing himself on the ground intentionally. He was completely soaked by the time I put him back in the stroller. Good thing our zoo visit was over!

He walks!

Richard actually took his first steps several months ago, but has refused to walk all this time. We have been waiting and waiting for him to take the plunge and last week he finally did!
He's started getting very brave and actually walking more than he crawls. These milestones are so bittersweet. I just love the "drunk Frankenstein" baby steps, though. I will miss them (next week) when he is running around chasing his sister with sticks.

Sorry for my lame video commentary. Am I ever going to learn?

But, butt, bottom.

Erin: Shirley Jean, you leave that cat alone.
SJ: But. But...
E: No "but." Leave him alone.
SJ: No, Mama! It's a BOTTOM. Don't say that butt-word.

Richard the Builder

We've been working day and night on some major yard and deck projects, and Richard wants to be just like his daddy!
These pictures are just too cute not to post.
