Micke Grove Zoo

Bubba turned 18 months yesterday. I feel like the time has flown by so quickly, but at the same time I feel like I've been a mother forever. You kind of forget what life was like before kids. I was just looking at old photos, and it's so crazy how different things are now. I can honestly say though, the last 18 months have been the happiest of my life, the last 2 1/2 years, really. I think part of that is just learning to put others before yourself. When you become a spouse and then a parent, you realize what's really important. You learn to love and serve each other, and that's the best part of life.

I've been 3 cm dilated since at least Friday, so who knows when the next baby is coming. I really wanted to make sure we had a day for just Bubba before he gets here. So, we took Bubs to the zoo yesterday with Nikki and Sheldon. Bubba called almost every mammal a dog, including the monkeys. And every bird was a duck. He cracks me up.

And the award for creepiest animal goes to...

This baboon that was staring right at me. Freaky! And this bald bird. Seriously, these pictures don't even do the creepiness justice.
