In joint celebration of mother's day and your first birthday tomorrow we took you for your first trip to the zoo. You now 'roof roof' as your means of communicating with all non humans. And there were some pretty funny looking dogs at the zoo today. Certainly a much more relaxing way to spend the day than the 22 hours of labour that was my first mother's day... a year ago today.
