Two Walking at the Zoo


This past week the kids and I made our first trip to the zoo since James became a "walking baby."



When I was going back through these pictures I was reminded of the first time we went to the zoo with Daphne once she had learned to walk. It was my birthday 2007, and Pete had surprised me by taking the day off work and planning a family outing to the zoo. So I went back and found this video of that day.

What you'll see below is a classic example of child #1 vs. child #2 parenting. Although Daphne was a couple months younger than James is now, she was a more "seasoned" walker than James. Yet, I was just compelled to hang on to that hood of hers to make sure she wouldn't fall. Embarrassing.

And I couldn't resist including this last picture from that day...

It's gonna be interesting to see the differences between child #3 and ...all the possible combination.

Well, Rosie, not so embarrassing... Does James take off in every direction, like Daphne did? Did you forget? Very cute....

Does this mean you are free of the stroller for good? How are moms to function without built-in sippy cup holders?

Ava and I are looking at this together, and she saw the elephant shot and yelled "Cool picture!"
