Monkey See Monkey Do

Wednesday, February 8th, 2012

Dane made a visit to the Santa Barbara Zoo on Saturday. This was his first trip to see this variety of animals and the little guy wasn’t disappointed. The weather was perfect, sunny, 75, with few clouds in the sky. Yes Mr. Groundhog, we’d love 6 more weeks of winter.

What's that Mommy?

Happy B-Day Elephant!

Here fishy fishy.

Can you spot the lion?

Dane likes to play.

We saw monkeys.

11 Months Today

Dane likes to move around. He’s quite finicky in his meanderings. There seems to be a pattern to his “crawl”. His parents would most probably mention his furtive jaunts to the kitchen, as the hard, cold tiles beckon the unsteady toddler. (Yes, he’s not officially a toddler currently, but his 11 month birthday is tomorrow, so let’s stretch it, shall we?)

Dane also crawls to the entry tiles to flick his beloved door stop. The door stop by the patio door, in the guest bathroom (also coupled with cold, hard tiles), and the door stop in his room are all time faves.

Dane’s finding new ways to get into whatever it is that he can get into. For instance, I’m not sure how he knows, but he finds the only two cabinets in our kitchen without a child lock, and proceeds to stand at only these cabinets. He’s crafty, to say the least.

Here’s Dane’s most recent hiding spot, a la Mom’s cell phone.

Shhhhhhhh. I'm not supposed to be in here!

Don't mind me, I'm just warming my buns.

Dane and Dad’s Excellent Adventure

Friday, February 3rd, 2012

Last Sunday, Daddy and Dane paid a visit to the beach whilst Mommy was slaving away at work.  (We did other stuff that day as well, but the beach was our highlight.)

Not to make you all jealous, but we had a sunny 75 degrees with just a hint of wind gently accenting the playful pods of dolphins that danced by.  After carrying Dane and gear to the beach, Daddy forgot his camera and wasn’t able to catch any beach action shots.  Instead, we get driving Dane.

Where are the keys Daddy?

Buckle up for safety!

Carrots with Daddy
