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...
