Saturday Zoo Trip

We love taking Julie to the zoo. And since we have a membership this year, Julie and I go pretty often during the week. But this week we went on Saturday so Ben could go with us and we had a great time. We sure wore Julie out, she fell asleep before we got to the monkeys, her favorite part. We packed a picnic and spent a good part of the afternoon just letting Julie wonder around the zoo. It was a great day.

More Julie Pictures

Julie has recently taken interest in shoes, hers, mine, Ben's, it doesn't matter. She wants to wear them all. Here she is wearing a pair of Daddy's shoes.

Ben has a small basket on our dresser that he keeps his wallet, keys and such in when he gets home from work each day. Julie has been trying to get at it for a while now. So one day last week she decided to push her scooter toy into the bedroom and use it to get to the basket. She was so very proud of herself.

Here's Julie with her Big Dog that her grandparents gave to her. It's really soft and she loves cuddling with it. So do the cats. : )

What have we been up to lately?

It's been forever since I've updated and there's been a lot going on! Julie has now TWO teeth, she's begun eating with her big girl fork, spoon and plate, she is gradually moving on from the bottle to a big girl cup, and she is becoming more and more independent each day. Ben and I went to visit his brother and his wife, Paul and Amy, over the Memorial Day weekend so we could play with our niece and meet our new nephew. Julie spent the weekend being spoiled by her grandparents and had a great time. We are enjoying the summertime weather and spend a lot of time outside these days. We're having a great time!!

Here's Julie's hairdo after Daddy gave her a bath. What a cutie!

Not a great picture of me, but I still love it.

Here she is showing off her TWO teeth!

We've put her to work! Cold drink anyone? Just kidding, of course. Anything that has a handle like this Julie loves to carry around the house.

Julie loves climbing up into and sitting in the big chairs in the back yard. She's getting so big!

Julie has recently discovered Mugo's kitty bed and she loves to sit in it with a couple Reader's Digests, just hanging out. Mugo's not too thrilled about this.

This past Saturday we spent the morning together at the zoo. Julie loves the monkeys!

In an attempt at being girlie, I finally got Julie some hair bows. I think this look is expressing Julie's concern for my hair decorating skills.
