The 4th was great this year...we caught up with some old friends and Charley's folks were in town for the weekend. John is below eating his first watermelon with daddy. He's 17 months old this month! He's a pro at walking and is beginning to talk, too. He said, "Mama, I love you" several Sundays ago. My heart sang. He loves to say "hi" to everyone and blows kisses at strangers. I'm not sure how I feel about that yet.
We went on a short trip to the Cincinnati Zoo one Saturday and had a blast! We saw elephants, spotted a few giraffes, and of course people watched all day long. He couldn't take his eyes off the crowds. He had fun walking some of the time and interacting with other little ones his age.
