The Zoo, Dance and Thumb-sucking!


A few weeks back we took a trip to the zoo! I took all 3 of my children and we went with Ellen, my sister-in-law and her 3 oldest children and Louise, Ellen and Will's cousin, and her 2 oldest children. My mom and Will's mom went to help out with the 8 children in tow. We had a blast - Wilson and Emma Claire absolutely love animals and did their part in terrorizing the farm animals in the petting zoo. Wilson chased them around like a little puppy!












They cooled off in the foam zone and fountains. It was a blast! Here are some pictures of our adventure!





Emma Claire and Wilson have nearly a daily dress-up time - this one occured right after bath-time - no pajamas for me- I AM A PRINCESS (and a caterpillar)!






Emma Claire and Wilson love their baby brother Henderson sooo much - It's a wonder Henderson likes to be put down b/c holding him is necessary much of the time b/c of wild man Wilson - SUPERVISED time on the floor is about all the time Wilson gets with him these days -if not, Henderson would be squished!!!





These are some pictures I took of Emma Claire one day before her dance camp - the batteries in my camera died right after one of these shots, so no more were taken that week :(




Next, we have a thumb sucker!!! I have never had a baby who would suck on a pacifier or fingers - maybe this explains his contentedness!!! :)



Wilson just plain won't sleep anymore! He stays up til about 8:00 now and finally goes to sleep, then wakes up anywhere between 3:30 am(this morning) and 4:15 am - as wide awake as can be! He naps, but they have also decreased - from 3 hours to 1 hour, maybe 2. what is going on!?

Well, this is just a little taste of our "Happenings" lately - Have a great weekend!
