Zoo and other pics

Last weekend we went to the zoo ("we" includes my sister and her family). I'm always glad when Sydney can get into places like these for free when she seems to uninterested in the exhibits. She would look at most of the animals but I was so surprised at how excited she was to see the penguins. Liam, her cousin, knows that penguins are my favorite, so when we play there are a lot of penguins and Sydney has been learning how to say it. It comes out more like "pen-yans!" but I get the idea. So, when she saw the penguins swimming at the zoo, we heard "pen-yans! pen-yans!". She was so excited!

And here is a pic of the "crowns" I occasionally make for Liam and Sydney. In case you are wondering what they are, we have a foam mat in the playroom, you know, the colorful squares, some with letters and numbers to take out. These strips are edging pieces so the edge of the mat is straight. The crowns don't stay together for long but Liam and Sydney like them.

And here is my little swimming diva. She is not shy about swimming anymore. In fact, she thinks she's a "pen-yan" and tries to leap out of my arms in the pool. I would get her floaties and let her go at it if it weren't for the fact that she has ear tubes in and is supposed to be wearing ear plugs in the pool. oooops.
We took Sydney to ride on the carousel and I was shocked at how much she enjoyed it because she has only freaked out on those quarter rides in malls.


And here are two videos of Sydney I wanted to share. The first is showing how good she is getting at animal sounds. I love it.

For this one, I blame my sister. My sister and her husband have introduced Sydney to the Queen song, "We Will Rock You". Well, we were sitting on the bed, reading scriptures together, when Sydney starts singing the chorus. I can't stop laughing. So of course, we got out the camera to video tape.
