(The nature museum’s animals are mostly rescues – the owl, for example, was hit by a car and has wing and brain damage.)

 

It never ceases to amaze me how interested Henry is in everything, even though he’s only 7.5 months.  I guess he’s truly past that baby lump stage – I remember the days that he was happy to lay on his back and stare at the ceiling fan!  But no more… Bugs and turtles and snakes, oh my.

Also, my back perpetually hurts now that he’s in the almost-walking-but-not-quite stage.

It’s nice when other people can take over!  Yay, grandma.

We came home and played and played and played until everyone – adults, baby, and pets included – happily passed out in their beds.

A good day, indeed.

 

Happy Sunday.  I hear there’s a football game on or something. Winking smile

    I love the idea of a nature museum! Zoo’s make me so darn sad, so this is a wonderful idea. The picture of that owl is insane!

    The little header on the left side seems to have a typo? The line about the zombies seems to be incomplete. I thought I would let you know. :)

    Hi Caitlin,
    Just thought I would mention that brown rice syrup seems to contain high levels of arsenic, so it may not be such a healthy substitute.

    Here are some links :

    What a fun time!

    Mommy-back…I’ve heard of it ;) Thankfully auntie-back isn’t as bad, but hopefully I can give mommy-back a try sometime.
