1st Time for Everything

I got the sweetest phone call from Steven while I was at work today. He called just to say "you know I've been thinking about this weekend and how much fun Sophie had running around the zoo like she owned the place and it just makes me so happy to see her like that." When you think about it, it's pretty wild that a 14 month doing something so simple like enjoying life around her can make a 30 year old man so happy. Every single day she does something new, sees something new and experiences something new. It's so fun to plan things for her to do just so we can see how she reacts. Swimming lessons, going to the park for the first time, grass. Needless to say I can not WAIT to get her on a beach! So here are few more pics from the zoo. These were all taken in the aquarium (which was by far Soph's favorite). My pictures with her and the lions didn't really turn out but I think she's more a fan of penguins these days, "waddle waddle waddle."

Little Bit and Daddy enjoying the aquarium.

There's a lion in the background...ARRRRR!

I love the look on her face in the first picture. I can't wait for the beach. I am just hoping that all the sand doesnt end up in Ashley's mouth!
See you this weekend.

It is amazing to see our kids discover something new. I never realized how much fun it is. I think Sophie is going to really enjoy the beach this summer!

She looks so adorable in the pictures! I love those pigtails! We took Jonathan to the beach last year and he wasn't really into it, but I am certain he will be the next time as he LOVES the sand now.

Very cute. I love all those first as well. With every age, there are still first to enjoy, and they just keep getting more fun.
