Last weekend, in contrast to yesterday’s four inches of snow, was actually quite warm. So we took a trip to the zoo. It was fun watching Baby K show interest and interact with the animals more than previous trips to the zoo. The first picture is what we claim to be her favorite animal – since her entire room and half of her wardrobe is adorned with owls. The second photo is probably her true favorite. The tamarin was actually very intrigued by Baby K!
Our cats love everything the new baby brings. Especially comfy places to lay, like the changing table. I’m sure this love will change once she is mobile!
After looking around on etsy and realizing that purchasing and framing prints for our baby room would be expensive, I decided to make my own! Two of the 12×12 prints are shown below – the third one has the baby’s name so I didn’t want to post it yet. We’re making progress on the room, and we’re going to reveal the gender this weekend at a shower, so stay tuned for some exciting updates! Any guesses on boy vs. girl? (Please don’t comment if you already know.)
I’m excited to say that I took this photo in my backyard yesterday. I live in a suburb of Kansas City, so seeing an owl in my yard isn’t exactly a common occurrence. I heard a ton of birds making all kinds of squawking noises yesterday evening, so I looked outside to see what was going on, and this large owl was starring right at me. I grabbed my camera and took a couple of quick distance shots, then walked closer only to get few blurry shots before she flew off. Coolest nature experience so far since we moved in March! Does it look like she’s is blinking in this photo?
