Zoo Re-Do

The last time we had gone to the zoo, Connor was in a bit of a mood. We went at about 11 and by the time we had walked around for a little while, Connor was hungry and having a melt-down. We stopped for lunch and made the rookie mistake of taking Connor out of the stroller. Oh holy moly. We then spent the next half of the zoo trip either running after him and attempting to get him down from the animal cages (okay, slightly dramatic...but pretty close) or battling him to stay in his stroller because he was ANGRY that we were asking him to be contained.

This weekend we decided to do a do-over. We decided to go at opening instead and thought it would be so much better. I'm not sure what was going on, but we had a similar day (no stroller issues, but everything else issues). Someone told me that the "terrible threes" are worse than the "terrible twos" and while I hate calling any stage my child is going through terrible, I have to say - it's been an interesting transition. I don't necessarily think it's worse, but Connor is definitely a lot more vocal about what he wants and doesn't. =) The amazing flipside to it though, is he is so much more vocal and hilarious. Man he makes me heart melt!

Funny story - I was putting on spanks the other day and Connor was watching me hop around trying to squeeze in them. He said, "No! Mama, those pants Isabella's?!?" I could not stop laughing. I could hardly even breath when I retold the story to the hubby.

Do you see how adorable my baby boy is??
 She was so happy at the zoo!
 Connor LOVED the giraffes today. Loved.

I love the age he is in. It is by far my fave. I was willing to give both megan and connor away when they hit 4 though. =/ You guys do such a good job with little man. He is welcome here anytime you need a break or he needs a break!!
