Through The Eyes of a Baby

Yesterday was truly an awesome day. I woke up not feeling so hot, but I took some emergency, took a shower and really tried to just put a smile on my face. 
Honestly, that worked really well. I made a solid plan for the next few weeks to get my school application completed, we went to the zoo, and we had a really good early dinner out at a restaurant we'd never been to before. It was such a good day. 
My mom's plan was to stay home and clean all day, but once my sister text her and asked for some help with the baby, my mom instantly came up with the idea to go to the zoo. To be honest, I haven't ever been a huge fan of the zoo, for me, it was more about taking Kallie and showing her all the animals and taking pictures of Alexis with her. It's about making memories to share. My sister was so excited to get her a little souvenir.  It's so sweet to see how my big sister is turning into a good little mommy. 
Kallie loved the zoo. I don't know how she kept that hat on. Usually she hates hats.  It must have been the little Velcro strap...

 Prepare yourself for a cuteness overload, because this child is adorable. 
When we set her on the little one, she started crying. She didn't want to do it alone, but with momma, she was all smiles.  We're working on the waving. So far she just kinda sticks her hand up like that, but I think she'll get there eventually. 

It was cool to try and see everything through the eyes of a little baby. We brought the stroller, but most of the time, she was out of it.  We were trying to show her all the animals. The Hogle Zoo is pretty cool, but it's constantly under construction. While I get that they're trying to make improvements, you cant see have the animals at the zoo because the place is all blocked off. We made the best of it anyway though. 
I didn't think she would sit in there all by herself, but she did and she didn't even cry. 

I love this picture of my mom and the baby. She has a special bond with grandma, but her face is cracking me up. She's looking at her like...uh...grandma, what are you doing?

And last but not least, you have to have a picture of this.

We're all growing up and our lives are being to take shape. They're all very different shapes that I don't think any of us saw coming. My sister's husband just joined the Air Force, so they'll be moving away sometime in the way-too-near future.  Megan is a senior in high school (she just barely found out she needs glasses. I think she looks like she's been wearing those things her whole life.) and will be off to college in the fall. I can't even believe My baby sister isn't a baby anymore and it's so weird. I don't even really know what I'm doing right now, but I know it wasn't something that I expected. Life is weird, but I think I can love it anyway. 

Until next time.
