A Friendly Giraffe (etc.)
It's not often that one gets to look a giraffe in the eye, but we happened upon this friendly (fellow?) at the zoo yesterday morning. The picture above is either really artistic or really bad, you make the call. But I thought it was at least kind of nifty how Daphne is reflected in the glass. Here's a brief video of Mr. Giraffa camelopardalis reticulata
"Giraffe" was one of James' first signs and we think it's still his favorite animal. I think he might have been a bit confused, but I can't really blame him since he was looking down at it.
Here's some snuggling hippos and then a goat, just cuz:
And a couple random bonus shots of James playing at the indoor mall playground (or as a friend of mine calls it, "the germ structure") today.
So, yeah, random blog but I suppose it's my prerogative.
P.S. Even more randomly, can anyone of my generation utter/type the above phrase without thinking of this (about 40 seconds in)? (And then be disturbed but certainly not surprised to check youtube and find this additional gem?
