Rachel is obviously the sweetest thing that was ever born. You can tell because the mosquitoes totally love her. She is being devoured by the little critters. Of course she has to have a couple of big bites right on her face. We hate subtlety in our house.
We went to the zoo on Monday. Rachel has gotten to a point where she really enjoys the zoo. We have been before, but she pretty much just passively sat as we strolled through the zoo, but now she really looks and reacts to what she sees. It is fun.
At the gorilla house Rachel made friends with a little girl. As we struck up a conversation, I learned that the other little girl was exactly Rachel’s same age, also born on September 22. The funny thing was that the other little girl weighs 14 lbs, while Rachel weighs 23 lbs. Of course we took pictures!
Rachel is the climbingest little monkey I have ever seen. (Is this a result of excessive time at the zoo? I don’t know.) Anyway, she can just about climb on anything. Piano bench? Easy. She just uses her old car seat to give her a step up. Laundry basket. Effortless. Couch? No problem.
