Saturday Day Trip to Zoo Atlanta continued

Saturday Day Trip to Zoo Atlanta

On Saturday, Joey, Kate, Brendyn and I headed to Zoo Atlanta. The zoo had a weekend special where Fulton County & City of Atlanta residents and government employees received free admission. I was anticipaticing it to be packed so we got up at 7 am and got ready to be there right when it opened. The weather was great and the animals were really active in the morning. We were able to see the Lions wrestling, the silver back gorillas chasing each other and splashing in the water. Kate really enjoyed seeing Xi Lan (Shee Lan) the new baby panda. She even helped one of the zoo volunteers squeegee the viewing window.

As for Brendyn, he slept the entire time and woke up right as we were pulling out of the parking lot to head home. :) Here are some pictures from our zoo trip. Enjoy.

Brendyn Weighs in at his one-month check up

Brendyn surprised Joey and I today at his one-month check up. Before he was weighed Joey and I took a bet as to how big he was. I guessed 10 lbs 2 ounces and Joey guessed 10. 7 - we were both WAY off. Nurse Erin laid Brendyn on the scale and he weighed in at 11 lbs and 8.5 ounces and measured 22" in length. He's in the 75th-90th percentile for both weight and height.

Today's Insight from Kate on how to correctly put on panties:

"The big Ariel goes on my booty and the small Ariel goes on my top shelf."

Yep, Kate... As your mom I couldn't have come up with a better explanation.
