Speaking of toddling little boys, did you catch in my last post that he'd finally taken more than two steps? WELL HE DID! His preferred method of transportation is still crawling because he is quite the master of that particular vehicle. However, if you stand him up and make sure he's steady, he will now take somewhere between six and twelve steps before toppling forward or falling backward onto his hind quarters. It's the most adorable thing to watch. Although, his Uncle Jon does think it more resembles a shuffle than a walk. It still counts! He did it a couple of times at Sea World thanks to the aid of the backpack, which he used to balance himself before shuffling off.
So he has now been to every "animal" park this county has to offer and, I think it's safe to say, Sea World was his favorite. There are certainly things he enjoyed about the Zoo and the Wild Animal Park but his two favorite things in all the world are being outside and being wet. Both of those were quite easily accomplished at Sea World.
