BE SURE TO CHECK IN TOMORROW.
I WILL BE GIVING AWAY A HUGE GIFT PACK OF CHEESE.
YES CHEESE! MORE DETAILS TOMORROW!
Elle and I are trying really hard to stay busy to make the days go by faster in Hattiesburg. It is really helpful if we get out and try to do a fun outing every day. On Friday the weather was gorgeous, definitely did not feel like January. Elle and I ventured out to Hattiesburg's tiny little zoo.
I have not been to this zoo since I was very young myself and had very low expectations because Memphis' zoo is so amazing. I was pleasantly surprised. Elle and I had great time. It is a very small zoo but perfect for Elle's age. They had a great train that went around the entire zoo so it was pretty long train ride. They also have a carousel and a jump house and of course some animals. Not a whole lot of animals but enough to spend a few hours there playing and exploring. Elle and I had a great morning together and she took a great nap that afternoon. Isn't that always a sign of a successful morning.
She looks a little peeved here but she loved the train ride and has been talking
about it nonstop since that day. We rode it twice!
A little picnic lunch with the peacocks. Elle thought they were so funny!
Feeding the ducks was definitely a highlight. We did that twice too.
She chose this horse, Pinky with the pink bridle both times we rode the carousel.
And I have to include this picture for memory purposes. She is in a stage where she has very specific requests for bedtime. Baby dolls, loveys and other friends and likes to wear shoes to bed. I have had to go in after she is sleeping and move some of her things into a corner of the crib so that she can sleep comfortably. I went in to peek on her the other night and this is how I found her. I just melted. So sweet. Also, in the morning when she wakes up in the morning she lays in her crib and talks and sings. I hear "eeeeeiiiiieeeeiiiooo" over and over. And then finally she says "mooooooommmmma open the door!" So I get up and go get her at that point. I have to put these kind
of things on the blog so I will remember them.
