I had a fantastic first Mother's Day. It started with M taking the early baby shift, so I was able to sleep a couple hours later in the morning. Heaven. Then, we headed out to the zoo! Unfortunately, everyone and their Mother (literally) were also there. M had to pull some crazy Philly driving moves (i.e. three point turn in the middle of a busy street) to score us a parking spot.
Carina and me looking at the penguins (my favorite!)
I'm not kidding, this ostrich was trying to eat the chain link fence.
Hanging out in the Baby Jogger City Mini without the car seat & attachment!
Me and our sleepy baby. The Ergo knocked her right out! Yes, there is an Emu behind us, staring right at you.
Lions! This adorable little lion cub was born just 10 days before Carina! It is amazing to think they are the same age.
After the zoo, we had a relaxing afternoon. Carina went to bed right on time (7!) and M and I enjoyed a glass of wine. He cooked me an amazing dinner of sauteed mussels (appetizer), and angel hair with scallops and shrimp. Dessert was chocolate cake. And oreos. And a fudgesicle. Yeah...I'm a fatty. It was Mother's Day; I think I deserved it :)
M got me a beautiful necklace with Carina's name and birthstone. It hasn't arrived quite yet. I will post pictures when it gets here. Also, we've decided for Mother's Day for me, and Father's Day for M we are going to get a DSLR camera! We'll be camera shopping in the next couple weeks. Can't wait!
