Exploring the World

One of the best things about having a child is getting to show them the world. Now when I say "world" I'm talking grass, animals, food, grocery know...small potatoes. We'll take on Europe, the Grand Canyon and gourmet food when the time is right.

Yesterday @ the Nashville Zoo
I love to see the look on Ethan's face when he is exposed to something new. I love how he just takes it all in. I love that I am the one that gets to show him!

There's something exciting about teaching someone something and while I might not have a lot of pertinent information to share with most people (unless the subject is baby poop, then I'm can have you covered....literally) I do have SOOOOOOOO much to share with my baby.

I've thoroughly enjoyed all the activities we have been doing lately. For a 6 month old he's seen a lot. A new state, an air show, mules, trains and zoo animals. Pretty good exposure for such a young one. I know he won't remember it, but that just means we will get to have twice as much fun when I take him the next time.

Papa and E exploring the zoo!
I'm still utterly amazed that he not only lets us, but actually enjoys being hauled around on these all day adventures. It's a good thing, because mommy has more trips and fun things planned for this little boy. First aquarium.

The zoo didn't have a big enough one for my little boys taste!

"Why do they all feel the same mom?"


  1. That definitely is one of the best parts of motherhood! Millie and I went outside and looked at dandelions and violets yesterday, and it was so neat to watch her experience things for the first time.

  2. We've always taken our kids out. Since they were babies, able to sit up. The zoo, museums, the park, hiking...anything, really. And now? They're 6 and 7, and LOVE going places more than anything. If we tell them we're heading to the Smithsonian? Excitement beyond measure.

    So much fun.

  3. Awww! It is fun to see things through a child's eyes! Nolan and I actually went to the zoo today too!

  4. I love the turtle photo - it's perfect. The best part of kids is that they make the small stuff seem big again!

  5. He really is the cutest! I, too, love to explore things with my daughter. We are taking her to Disney over the weekend and though she is still young I can't wait to see her face when she sees everything! I don't know who is more excited me or her! Just a fulfilling thing to share these things with your child!

  6. Awwww So cute! He is so sweet. You will do all those things with him as a baby and then teach him a ton of new things when you do them as a toddler and then again as a preschooler! It is totally a wonderful thing!


Comments make my day! Go ahead...get to typing. I want to hear from you.
