where the wild things are :: emmie at the zoo

[there are about two months worth of life that i haven't yet documented here.  fingers crossed that i'll catch up soon but i couldn't let being behind hold me back any here goes]

it happened.  our sweet little emmie bear went to the zoo, ironically i don't know that we saw any bears.  we traveled up to the cincinnati zoo and met our dear friend jenna.  cincy is about halfway between our two houses and baby-friendly so it made for an obvious choice.  we got yummy breakfast while emmers screamed at all the other diners.  [that's what she does now...shouts at strangers]. 
she roared at all the animals.  she loves to roar.  most of her favorite books now have animals in them and we always make the noises together, i think that was one of her favorite things about the zoo.  that and staring at other people's kids.

this is emmie and a wallaby i think.  she looked at it kind of like it was a stuffed animal.  but maybe a stuffed animal she didn't want to touch.
"helloooo, it's me emmie!"
whenever she was on the ground she was a wild woman.  she basically acts like she's an animal on the loose and runs as fast as she can away from containment (ie: me)
::jenna and emmie collins::

my sweet little babe, auntie jenna and i loved taking you to go see all the animals and hopefully on our next visit you'll take longer than a 30 minute nap to be primed and ready for fun.  you probably were too excited to sleep, i get that way too.  but don't worry, i'm already dreaming up a family membership next summer.  think of all the fun you'll have!  my itty bitty baby is turning into a running, squealing ball of little girl right before my eyes!
oh yeah, and she was completely knocked within 5 minutes of dropping jenna off.  doll baby!

should eat cereal or sleep?

so i say crazy things like "i'm going to post once a week" and then i don't post for you know, like a couple months or something.  hmmm, fail.  the truth of it is, life is busy and in our "down" time well, i'm a little bit of a lazy bum.  but i have a few things that i'm going to try and commit to, and you know, actually do them.

:: blog regularly, high hopes being about once a week to record our little but wonderful life
:: be in the Word daily & prepare early for the studies i'm involved in [not last minute]
:: become a clean freak
:: stay on top of my work daily so it doesn't pile up
:: use my dslr often

got any mid-year resolutions yourself?  or some 'back-to-school' habits you're trying to master?  here we go ya'll.
