We went to the Cleveland Zoo because I wanted Evan to see the giraffes and zebras since we don't have them at our zoo. Ironically enough the exhibit that made the biggest impression on Evan was the mechanical dinosaurs! He keeps talking about how he was scared and that some of them spit water at the kids. He also got to take his first train ride around the Australia exhibit. Emma is a big trooper on all of these trips and just sits patiently in her stroller chewing on toys!
Emma hasn't turned her nose up to any of the new foods. She liked her green veggies- peas and green beans and tried applesauce last night for the first time. She is also starting to use a sippy cup with water. I don't know how much she is actually drinking, but it keeps her occupied for little while!
Evan has really been enjoying his summer. He loves playing outside with his friends, he always asks where everyone is at when he looks outside. He is in the middle of potty training and doing a great job. He still loves books, coloring, and TV. He is a great big brother and is always asking what Emma is doing if he can't see her. I have been taking him to story time every Thursday and see his shy side come out, so we'll have to keep working on that!
Where does time go?? At 6 months old Emma is sitting, rolling, pushing up on her arms, a slobbery mess, but no teeth yet, chewing on everything, laughing, grabbing at for everything within her reach, eating cereal and veggies, saying "MaMa," and sleeping 9-10 hours at night. She has a great personality and only fusses when she is tired or can't see her mommy :)

Evan is afraid of masks. One of the neighbor kids put on a spiderman mask and he freaked out. While he was in PA he put on a hat backwards, pulled it down over his eyes and said he was spider man. He was leaping onto us and laughing like crazy. It was hilarious.
