Our Trip to the Zoo!

Last Tuesday we took our first family trip to the zoo! Chicago has a great zoo called the Lincoln Park Zoo that is free! The biggest hits were the baby chicks, the horse, the goat and the zebra. He was pretty confused by the was pretty cute!

Jack is walking everywhere now! There really isn't a time during the day he chooses to crawl. It's so crazy to see our baby turn into a little person! He just walks around the house with his own agenda and is so independent. The best part is that he actually is becoming more snugly with this new found independence. He goes and does whatever he wants and then comes back to check in and get a hug...and then he's off again! We love it! He has never been one to cuddle so we are really enjoying every minute of it!

We didn't take a lot of pictures this week as we've all been sick with a bad cold...but here are a few that we did take!

Jack is fascinated by the baby chicks
Pointing to the cow...
He still loves goats!
The zoo is right north of downtown Chicago so it's got great views of the city Jack just walking around doing his thing...
Looking at the zebras
Another point where he didn't want to be in the stroller or be held...very independent...
Reading books on the couch with Mommy!
I had him sitting on the counter while I gave him a few Teddy Grahams and he decided to really relax and enjoy himself!
Reading his Elmo Trick or Treat book with Daddy...he loves the doorbell button...lucky us! :-)
