the trio…

pop and arnetta have been staying with us for a bit and arnetta got a great picture of jon, pop and jasper lilith playing on the floor…we have the laughing one (that would be jon) and the two rather intent ones – heads down in what seems to be identical forms of concentration 🙂

day 5 of the black eye…

it looks even worse now but i have gotten over the embarrassment part of it…bumps, bruises and black eyes are just part of any active toddlers repertoire…or would that be portfolio?

the day the bathtub took a swipe at the jasper lilith…

and the bathtub won…there was an Incident…this Incident involved little jasper and the very hard side of the bathtub….she took it upon herself to stand up in the tub and for some reason, unbeknown-est to me, she then decided to fall before i could catch her…and fall she did…

the poor monkey hit her cheekbone on the way down and soon had a shiner that has left me a little embarrassed to take her out in public…she was not a happy camper (nor was i) for a bit but soon got over it and went on to splash around in the tub and have a jolly time…

and even with a black eye, the little wombat is as cute as a button!

dancing queen…

i was only able to catch the tail end (ha!  pun intended!)of her dancing to jack johnson – man, she was getting down!  but here is at least at little snippet of jasper lilith bouncing to the music…well, sort of 🙂

cowboy hat off…cowboy hat on…

and off again…and on again…and off again…and on again…you get the picture 🙂

rub-a-dub-dub…baby in a tub…

ahhh, the zoo…

we took jasper to the zoo for her first on-foot excursion – we didn’t even take the stroller!  it was a good weather day – overcast, barely there rain and around 76 degrees – so we took last minute advantage of such a day and ran to the zoo about an hour before it closed 🙂

jasper ran around picking up leaves, trash (ew…), dirt and bamboo but she entertained us as well as many passer-bys…she was quite the crowd gatherer – people would just stop to watch her…why?  cuz she is just that interesting 🙂

animal-wise:  other than the flamingos, ducks and the bird aviary, which are all at her eye level, she was too busy looking at the ground to pay much attention to the other animals but that is fine by us…
