The Park, Teeth, and Standing!

We had a wonderful day at the park! The weather was perfect and Ace was able to crawl around and get lots of energy out and enjoy a carrot while on dad's shoulders (in case you're wondering what the heck that is in the below photo.) We attempted, yet again, to go to the zoo - but after circling the parking lotS (yes several) for several hours minutes I had a meltdown at the inadequacies of big cities and their inability to have adequate parking for a freakin' zoo!!!! we decided to go to the park instead and visit the zoo only ever in San Diego in this city another decade day.

Exciting things that have happened this week include Ace's second tooth finally coming in. It happened on Wednesday, but well I've been a little out of it since Wednesday night - so I'm a *tad* behind on exciting announcement. Yes the TOP tooth right about his bottom one has broken through and the other top front tooth is days away from doing the same. In fact if you look closely in the first picture below you can see them. Also in that picture is Ace's latest and currently his favorite facial expression: the wrinkled nose. Other announcements that are looming but aren't quite ready to be made (because it hasn't happened yet) Ace is SO close to walking. Or at least taking that first step. All day today he was pushing himself from the ground into a free standing position without holding onto anything and then just hanging out there for a while. Even bouncing dancing around in place. He tried twice to pick up his foot and go somewhere but it resulted in a fall, so we're not quite ready to call that his first steps.

Finally, I'm feeling much better and have now kept ndown several decent sized meals so the energy is slowly returning as well. Thanks for all the well wishes. They've been much appreciated. Enjoy the photos!

I didn't know you were in San Diego... I am in Temecula- there are so many SITS near by- I need to plan a meet up!

Tr the zoo in the Fall- I've always found it way less crowded and the animals more likely to come out, as it's not so hot!

Another tooth. Before long he'll have a full set of chompers.

He's such a cutie. Thanks for sharing.

What cute pictures! We love the SD zoo and try to go every time we go over to visit family. Hopefully we will be living closer soon so we can go all the time. There and to Sea World - so fun. I think we have some toddler teething going on here at our house. Have a good day.

He is a darling boy! Love the beautiful weather everyone's had lately. Sometimes the park is better for your nerves than the crowded zoo. Glad you had a nice weekend.
