Wild Animal Park

Last Friday, Mommy took me to the Wild Animal Park with Grandma Sue and Auntie Sammy.  It was my first real outing other than soccer games and walks around the neighborhood.  Mommy carried me most of the day in our Baby Bjorn.  I like facing out and being able to see everything!
Our first stop was at the African elephant barn.  We saw a few of the big elephants and even a couple of the babies!  They are a lot better at getting around than I am.

Next we went to Condor Ridge and visited the California Condors.  Mommy told me she used to watch and study them at the WAP and introduced me to Sespe (one of the captive condors).  I wasn't as impressed as she hoped.  They just looked like big ugly birds to me.

After that we meandered through the Heart of Africa trail and saw some lions, a lot mo
re birds, an okapi, gazelle, rhinos, giraffes (my favorite!), etc.  Lunch time came, we all ate, and then went to see the gorillas.  Mommy read about gorilla babies and how they are just as helpless as us human babies when they're born.

At the end of the day I was super tired and started to fall asleep in Mommy's arm.  Yet she still managed to get a few photos of me with the girls and with the famous rhino statue.

Merry Christmas & Happy New Year!

So when you're only 3 months old, there isn't a whole lot to do on Christmas. Mostly other people coo at your Christmas-y pj's and open your presents for you. And apparently Mommy and Daddy didn't do such a stellar job at taking photos of me...Mommy will have to ask other people for theirs! Here are some cute ones though:

Playing with Mommy on Christmas morning

Don't I have the most adorable face you have EVER seen?

Apparently the holidays wore me out's one of Mommy and I doing some after-Christmas shopping at Target. Please note how I am completely passed out in her arms!

I also wanted to wish everyone a very Happy New Year despite not even making it to the east coast celebration. Instead I woke up Mommy at 1 am so she wouldn't miss out too much!

My friend Dahlia "tagged" me awhile back but Mommy is slow on the updates. I guess it means that I have to share 7 things about myself that no one knows. Since I'm only (almost) 4 months old, there isn't a whole lot to me...

1. I can roll from my tummy to my back.
2. I can say lots of things in lots of different volumes, none of which are intelligible yet.
3. I love to watch football on the magic box. I don't seem to care whether it is the NFL or NCAA.
4. My favorite toy is my Lamaze tug block. It helps me roll from my back onto my side. Once I'm there I don't know what to do with my arms to get myself on my tummy though.
5. Once Mommy stopped swaddling me at night, I promptly reverted to waking up every 2-3 hours again. She had one blessed week of 7 hours of sleep. She misses my swaddle sacks.
6. Fireplaces are great! Warm and entertaining.
7. I'm ticklish underneath my armpits and on the bottom of my feet.

Ok, that's all for now. And since Dahlia is the only other blogger I know...I can't really tag anyone else.

I know Mommy and Daddy and some other relatives have some cute Christmas pictures of me to share soon though!
