Yesterday morning felt like fall. I love fall. I love wearing jeans and sweaters and consuming everything pumpkin flavored. I love the way the air feels and smells. Also, I have some hella cute baby clothes that are too warm right now, but will fit her as soon as it isn’t.
But really, I love fall even without the baby clothes.
I know we’ve probably still got a few weeks, but we’ve really been enjoying cooler temperatures. Two Saturdays ago we went to the zoo (it’s only 15-20 minutes away and we are members) after Charlotte was done at Avery’s 1st birthday. Charlotte is apparently really popular because this is the second birthday party she’s been invited to. The nice thing about this age is I get to come along and eat the cake.
I’m including some animal pictures, mostly for Terzah’s twins.
So, one of my favorite animals at the zoo is the wolverine (even if they are my sworn enemy). Normally you can’t get a good picture because only one is out a skulking around furiously like it can’t wait to tear out your eyeballs. I guess the rain settled them down, because I caught one acting like Delilah.
We went back to the zoo this past Friday to see the tiger cubs.
We also went in to the new stingray touchpool, but I didn’t take pictures because I was too busy petting and feeding the stingrays. A couple of them played with us and splashed at people. My husband think they are aquatic cats. Feeding them was weird because their mouths are like suction cups.
Yesterday we took Charlotte swimming for the first time. The YMCA gives membership price breaks to poor people, so we managed to squeeze it in to the budget. Our local Y is new and gorgeous. The leisure pool has a giant slide and tons of fountains and jets for kids to play in. The kid loves water, so it went well. She was hypnotized by the fountains and the other kids.
Meanwhile, Charlotte is almost 6 months old and I haven’t shared her pictures from 5 months. Working 4 hours a day and taking care of a baby full-time is really hard.
We’ve gotten to the point where the kid can abuse the frog.
Anyways, that’s what we’ve been up to. That and a whole lot of working. Charlotte gets more fun everyday, so we also play a lot. I’m going to try to blog more, but no promises.
