Spring in Missouri seemed to start earlier this year than in years past. It was 70 degrees some days in January and February and it was BLISSFUL! We took tons of long walks – we bought a hiking toddler backpack and so far it’s been a hit. Paul loves carrying it, and Lucy loves sitting up to see the sights. That is, until she falls asleep.
We had some visitors for a few days when our nephews were on spring break. We played until we couldn’t play anymore. Lucy never stops moving these days.
We took our first ever trip to the St. Louis Zoo. Lucy was semi-impressed. She liked the elephants and the monkeys (or maybe that was me). I think that if we took her back today she would be so much more impressed – she is so into animals. She even says “flamingo” when we pull our her flamingo jammies.
One of her favorite books is “Moo Baa La La La”. She insists on sleeping with it and knows almost the whole book, word for word. “Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See?” is another favorite. Animals!
