Happy Wednesday, hope you all are having a great week so far!! Waverly Maye & I have been keeping busy with lots of “just us” time together, I am doing my best to soak in these last summer moments with her. We are three weeks until I return to work, something that I know is going to be a big transition for both of us. It’s definitely hard to even think about, sometimes I wonder if it would be easier if we didn’t have these ten weeks to realize how much fun being together all of the time is. Yet at the end of the day, I am so grateful for them & I know we will get through the change, we have done it twice before & made it happen. Plus, there’s lots of fall fun to look forward to! 🙂
One of our favorite places to go this summer has been to the zoo, I ended up getting us a year membership in addition to our season passes to the waterpark. As much as this chick is all about anything with water, she loves animals just as much. Her relationship with our dog is only getting cuter, each morning she insists on reading to Bogger (she yells “Bogger, sit down so I read to you”), & the other day, I walked in on her feeding him with one of her doll play forks. I mean, the cutest! She is too much fun.
Waverly is definitely to the age that if I tell her what we are going to do the night before, she remembers & gets really excited about it the next morning (which I guess can be a good or bad thing!). Last week she had been asking to go to the zoo for days, so the morning after I told her we were going she immediately was ready. One of her favorite animals there is the tiger, so we put on her kitty dress in honor of them. Another new milestone, she likes to help pick out her clothes each day, she either says “I like it” or “NOT!”. 😉
It amazes me how interested she gets, she usually is so on the go that I never could have pictured her wanting to stop at each attraction. Yet she does, she asks what each animal is & wants to watch them for a few minutes before moving on. It’s been the best way to teach her about what the animals are & the sounds they make, I could seriously listen to her imitate the monkeys all day long. 😉
They also have fountains all through the park & a splash pad at the end, another reason she loves to go there. I have tried to take her at least once a week, here are a few of the pictures from our visits so far!
Thanks to all of you who continue to link-up each week, Jess
& I are both so thankful! If you are new, welcome, & see this post
