A Day at the Zoo...

Time has been flying this summer. I'm only taking one class, but that is plenty to keep me busy in the time that I am not running errands, washing bottles, or changing Sparky's diaper.

Today, however, we found time to take a trip to the zoo with my friends, Carrie and Susan, and their twin babies, Harper and Jackson. It was the first trip to the zoo for all three of the babies.

We saw the chimpanzees:

And the bears:

And, finally, we took a ride on the train. (That is friend Nurse Chris in the picture with us. Yes, the Sparkster is trying to sleep.)

While on a lunch break, we compared baby foot sizes. Harper was born on Valentine's Day of this year, so she is two months older than Sparky. However, he weighs more than either of the twins and as this pic shows, he also has much larger feet.

There's something to be proud of!

Are they like puppies? Can you judge how big they'll get by their current foot size? He should be 7'6" by age 10.

Glad you had fun at the zoo.

Cute babies everywhere!

I've been having strange dreams lately about having babies. And before you even ask, the answer is absolutely not.

OMG, too cute!! Was this his first playdate?

Sparky seemed to not be bothered in the least by bears or small feet.....he's gonna be a good kid.

Bigger feet = more stability. I wear a size 10 shoe, and ridicule though I may get, I rarely topple over. Nice work!

What a cute baby. You picked the right cell to let through the membrane.

Enjoy these years, Violet.

I'll have to ask my om how big my feet were at that age. They seem to have topped out at a 7.

Cute pics!
