Zoo time

Last Monday we took Gabbie to the zoo. We were so excited for her to ride the train but it was not running due to tree branches on the train tracks from the storms. We still had a good time though and after visiting the gift shop Gabbie made out with 2 stuffed animals as souvenirs, a penguin Mumbles (Gabbie loves Happy Feet) and a baby monkey with a diaper and binky. Now for some pictures from the day.

Gabbie is still going on the potty. She still has wet diapers but goes on the potty at least a few times each day. We are in no rush so we just let her go when she wants to. Here she is working on potty training with her stuffed animal. She also likes to have her babies go potty as well.

On the way to the zoo

Steve always asks why I take pictures of the animals and I have no good reason except I like to. Anyway, this guy was eating sunflower seeds, literally cracking them open and eating the seed only. He then put his head down and went nighty night as Gabbie says it.

For some reason I love the sea lions!!! I think they are my favorite animals at the zoo. Gabbie wasn't too impressed. She preferred looking at the kids around her instead.

Aww she is such a daddy's girl. I think this picture is so sweet.

Here is another sweet daddy and Gabbie picture.

Seriously she is crazy about her daddy and he is crazy about her. It is too cute!

Gabbie loves to jump and spin. Here she is jumping!

She always has to push the stroller. To bad she can't see where she is going. Today at Lowes she ran right in to a glass door. Bad mommy and daddy were right there but looking at something. Thank goodness nothing broke.

There is something about this picture I love. Maybe it is the light on her hair? I don't know but I like it!

Going home with her baby monkey.

Hi Angie! :D

I love your new adorable banner! Gosh, Gabbie is gorgeous and SMART. I love reading about what she is saying and about what she is able to do. It sounds like she is about the same size as Emma. Emma wears 18 months for the most part but a few of her 18 month bottoms seem kinda tight around the middle. I am so glad that you had such a wonderful Mother's Day, Angie!! How wonderful it is to have our girls in our lives! God bless.

What a fun day at the zoo! LOVE all the pictures but that one with her daddy is especially precious. It is so wonderful to capture those special moments. I'm always looking for my camera!

Take care, hope you have a wonderful relaxing day tomorrow :-)
