The zoo!

I have really been doing a terrible job at taking pictures lately, sad I know, but I never posted these pics from the zoo several weeks ago. This was actually Elliott's first trip to the zoo. This was her face the whole visit.
So not impressed mom. Truman's wilder than any of these cats.

I went with several other moms, and some of their kids were a little older to actually enjoy looking at the animals. Besides it being a little chilly, it was such a blast! Apparently we went on a great day because ALL the animals were out (or so my friends who were the "zoo experts" said). Unfortunately, the baby elephant was not out yet. We will definitely go back. Here's a few pics of the group.
The mommy brigade
The babies

My sweet friend Jen and her adorable little guy.

And last but certainly not least, my oh so serious child. So funny!

I also wanted to give a big thanks for everyone's words of advice/encouragement on the whole breast feeding issue. It was SO reassuring that I nor my child is disfunctional and others have gone through a similar situation. The good news is I am almost completely healed from our little biting episode, so we're just trucking along. I'm trying not to worry if she doesn't eat as much, and just trying to go with the flow. I think my big hang up with quitting is I hate to start her on formula when we're so close to a year. It just seems like a headache I don't know that I want to handle. I guess we'll see.

  1. I have to say, I kind of agree with Miss Elliott. Zoos aren't my thing either! I love that face!
