Abbey didn't really want to touch the animals. She didn't mind seeing them up close, as long as Daddy was holding her too.
There were also fun picture opportunities...look at this adorable farmer and flower!
Oh, another cute flower!
In other news, we think Juliette may be closer to walking. She has been able to take steps for about a month now, but she hasn't really taken off quite yet where I would call her walking. But this week she started to do it with a bit more frequency, so we'll see. I have some video - I will try to get it up soon. It's been the funniest thing. With Ben and Abbey, as soon as they took their first steps, they were off and going, but with Juliette, she took her first steps weeks ago, but still hasn't taken off! Oh well, it'll come. But she has been saying new words every day! She can say Mommy, Daddy, doggie, duck, Ben, Abbey, Juju, book, diaper, bye bye, night night, and of course, Happy Birthday, just to name a few. She can also point out your ears, nose, and hair (we're working on the other body parts) and knows what a dog and duck says. I love this stage because she is learning so much every single day and I am so glad I am spending so much time with her to see it all. Have I mentioned that I love staying home???
