Lizzy went to the zoo today with just mommy and daddy. It was perfect weather - nice and cool and slightly overcast, and the zoo was not at all crowded! Lizzy's favorite animal is definitely monkey - she was SO excited to see them and went "oo-oo-aa-aa" all around the whole zoo. We got this picture of her trying to be as big as the orangutan.

I always think Lizzy is smart, but she just amazes me sometimes - I made a pork roast for dinner the other night, and I gave Lizzy a bunch of cut up pieces on her tray. She picked up a piece and put it to the side, saying "one", then grabbed another "two", and another "three" - she counted out 10 pieces of meat! I couldn't believe it - my 17 month-old knows how to count. She did it again the next day with her goldfish crackers. Then, we were out at the pie for pizza, and Lizzy was sitting in a booster seat in between Jason and I. Jason set down a plate in front of each of us, and Lizzy pointed to the plates one at a time, saying "mommy's, Lizzy's, daddy's." Jason turned to me and said, "She said daddy'S - she knows how to use possesive! Holy crap!" At which, Lizzy started saying "crap, crap, crap..." Anyway, I think she's amazing!

We made a toddler room for Lizzy, since the new baby is coming to inhabit the nursery! We wanted Lizzy to have a few months to get used to the new room so that it wasn't so many changes all at once when the baby is born. We didn't need to worry about it though - Lizzy is thrilled with her new room, and has slept in the new bed without any problems the last 2 nights.
