October Zoo Visits

We've taken Wesley to the zoo for the past two weekends in a row. With the weather being so hot this summer and me being pregnant, we didn't have many opportunities to go this summer. So, we're taking advantage of the beautiful fall weather. The Philly zoo was celebrating Boo at the Zoo both weekends, so we had fun trick-or-treating there as well.


Checking out the hippos with Daddy.


Waiting in line for the zoo train.


Wave hi to Mommy.





Hi Mommy!!!!! Hi Baby Claire!!!!


Skipping after the train. Yes, he LOVES it.


Driving the tractor at the children's zoo.


Claire at the zoo. She slept the whole time, both times.


Brushing the goats.


Playing on the rail while watching the baby giraffe.


On the second trip, we took Wesley's cowboy costume. Thank you Grandma Pataky! It turned out perfectly. (There's a bandanna and sheriff star too, but we didn't want to lose the accessories at the zoo)


Hey! Look at THAT Mommy!


Checking out the other costumes.


Action shot of Wesley goofing around.


Back at the rail for the baby giraffe.

Claire - 1 month


My little pumpkin.


The hat is a little big, but she's a super cute squash.


Almost caught the smile on camera. It's really hard to get her to smile unless she can see your face, and then, it's really hard to get a good picture of it yourself in the process.


Loving the activity mat, just like her brother did.





Telling Mommy something important.


Nope, not going to smile for the camera yet. Hopefully we'll catch it soon. It's absolutely adorable.


Sleeping while Mommy posts pictures online.

Claire - 6.5 weeks video

Kind of a boring video in itself, but it does give you an idea of what Claire looks like today.

Hungry hungry hippos

We recently bought Wesley this game after he fell in love with it this summer playing with Uncle Lanny. Here he is playing with Aunt Emily and Daddy, who also seem to enjoy it.

Big Brother holding Claire

Wesley LOVES holding Claire. Unfortunately, she doesn't cooperate very often. Here's a video where she was sleeping. It's hard to hear Wesley at some points because he's trying to be quiet so he doesn't wake her up.

Claire - 2 weeks old

Here's a video of Claire at 2 weeks old.

Wesley - Mr. Potatohead

In early August, we got Wesley a Mr. Potatohead set. He played with it non-stop for a couple of weeks and used to like to sing the Potatohead song while he played. Check out this link for the actual song from a commercial and see how he does in comparison. He used to run around saying, "I like you, you funny guy."

Wesley - Buddha belly

I discovered that I had a bunch of videos on the camera waiting to be downloading. I'm posting a bunch of them today. This video is from July and Wesley's showing us his Buddha belly.

Claire - 6.5 weeks

Here are some pictures of Claire from this morning. I have some new (and old) videos to post and should have them up soon too.
