I got to celebrate my new tooth at the zoo today!

The zoo is extra fun on cool days in the early morning.  There aren't too many other toddler-peeps so it's easy to run around, wave at the animals, and lick the glass of the animal enclosures when mom isn't looking.

My friend Bella came to the zoo!  We're getting pretty great at posing together, when we feel like it.

My friend Ansel was at the zoo, too!  We were all so excited to see each other we decided to cooperate for some pictures, but then our moms were all, "Smile!" and we were all, "Umm, like this?"  I don't think this is what they meant.  Just a hunch.

And I'll be honest, not all of our group shots were a win...

And, well, I wasn't going to say anything but today I had my first kiss.  I'm a little embarrassed that mom saw.

As it turns out, today I also had my second kiss.

I'll be honest, Peeps, my friends were pretty sweet but what I really wanted was to eat.  I only had to ask eleventy billion times before mom made some food appear.

I was very happy to have some snacks while hanging out with my friend tiger-guy.

Later we got to do something really awesome - we got to visit the goats!  I've never met a goat but I pretty much loved them!  Mom was all, "I don't think you should touch them, Juj" and I was all, "Mom, I just licked the glass by the flamingos, a little goat isn't going to hurt me."

This one goat really loved me.

I almost wanted to take him home.  I bet Sister Lab would like a Brother Goat.

And goaty-guy liked when I fed him treats.  I am pretty much an expert treat feeder.  I practice with Sister Lab a lot.

Ansel liked feeding the goats too.  And he only tasted their food once or seven times.

I would have been happy to feed the goats all day.

But once I ran out of food, goaty-guy tried to eat my fingers, so it seemed like a good time to move on.  Mom made me wash my hands eleventy times after my goat encounter.  Lame.

On our way back inside Bella and I did some running skills.  We're pretty excellent runners.  I bet we could totally win Sunday's maraton if we tried.

All the running and animal visiting and goat feeding was exhausting.  I was pretty relieved to see Hank and bink at the end of the zoo adventure.

I had the greatest day at the zoo today.  I hope I can go back with my friends again mega soon!


Hi Peeps!
I know, I know, I'm way behind on my blogging skills.  It's not my fault - mom has been totally hogging the computer to monkey around with my pictures.  She's all, "Look Juj, I made your eyes pop!" and I'm all, "Listen mom, that's the sound of my fans' collective disappointment in my lack of posts."

I promise I will catch up this weekend.  I have lots of pictures to share, stories to tell and skills to show off.

But in the meantime, I have some very exciting news to share!  And no, it's not about how sparkly my eyes are in this picture.  (But mom did make them look pretty awesome, I guess.)

My big news - I am now the proud owner of THREE teeth!  My third tooth finally popped through!  It's on the top.  It's pretty awesome and sharp. 
I wonder if mom will throw me another tooth party?

My mom took my picture. 
Then she spent an unreasonable amount of time trying to learn how to use a program to make my pictures look extra awesome.  I think she needs private lessons.

You know what's lame?  Running out of chocolate chips.


Mom is always all, "Sharing is caring, Juj."  So even though Sister Lab never shares her food with me, I love to share with her.  I think my snacks taste extra delicious when Sister licks them first!

Mom brought me to see my very first movie today!  I got to see The Lion King!

Mom was all, "Juj, do you want to see regular or 3D?" and I was all, "I don't think they have 3D glasses that would fit Hanky-guy, so we better just see regular."  The movie was awesome!  I sat on mom's lap the whole time and danced and watched and never even remembered to eat my snacks!

Movies are so fun!  I can't believe I've never seen any others!  I probably want to see the Muppet movie that is coming out soon.  And the monkey movie next April.  And any other movie with songs and animals.

I spent a lot of the rest of the day playing outside.

I love toddling up the street looking for ducks and squirrels.

The ducks live across the street so it's not a long walk to visit them.

Sometimes I like to hang out in the driveway...

... watching for airplanes, birds, dogs...

... and airing out my tongue.

Later I decided to cruise the streets by vehicle.

I really love driving, waving to sprinklers, and yelling "hi" to anyone I spot.  Except construction workers.  They are a scary breed.

This is what I look like when mom is all, "Hey Juj, do you want to say hi to the friendly construction workers?"

But don't worry Peeps, as soon as strange men are out of my line of sight, I'm back to being a happy, carefree toddler-peep.

Last weekend my friend Nora ("Norna") was in town to visit me so I was all, "Hey Norna, do you want me to show you a super awesome place that's so fun you won't even notice that you're probably being exposed to the flu, malaria and head lice?"  And Nora was all, "I ride the New York subway all the time already, Juj."

Since there's no subway in my town, we went to the next best thing - Edinborough Park!

Mom had never let me play there before.  She was always all, "Sorry Juj, there's not enough hand sanitizer in the world."  Lame.  Luckily she decided to make an exception if I promised to scrub my hands after.  And I did a great job - she only  had to ask me once not to lick the slide.  (And maybe one request about not tasting a window...)

Nora and I loved sliding together!  We didn't even need help climbing up!

We probably went down the slide eleventy billion times.  It was extra fun because there weren't very many other toddler-peeps to get in our way.

We also loved practicing our sealife-riding skills.

I might want to get my own whale, that's how much fun I had riding a whale. 

See?  Best time ever.

There were so many fun things to climb and I'm pretty much an expert climber after all my practice at home. 

Can you believe mom tried to keep me away from this place? 

After we finished our climbing skills, Nora and I decided to workout in the gym.  I totally love scooters so that's where I started. 

There were some pretty cool rocket scooters.  They would have been more fun if we could ride them and not pose for pictures, but what else is new?

I really loved gym time.

I also tried this other thing.  Mom was all, "I think you're sitting backwards," and I was all, "I know that, I'm just expressing my creative side.  Don't stifle me."

After we played and played and played it was time for a snack.  Nora was a little sad because she wasn't allowed to share my crackers.  She had a little window-sill-tasting situation at the beginning of her trip and had to get her lip fixed up.

But don't worry, we got to share pouches together. 
We had a great time playing together.  I can't wait until she comes to visit again!

And I can't wait until mom caves and takes me back to the indoor park!
