And baby number 2? Yeah, he'll be lucky to get a cake.

The weather this year was a bit colder than last, but there were still lots of animals to see. Like the goats, who could smell our McDonald's (I know, we're awesome.) breakfast.

This next part is funny as Zach asks the Mandrill "Do you like me?" with all the sincerity that a three year old can muster, and Eleanor asks "Dat mine, dad?" Yes, of course it is Eleanor. Everything, we've found so far, is yours.

A few weeks ago I took Eleanor in for her latest immunization shots. Due to some rigmarole with finding her a new clinic after her last "doctor" was so "awesome", she was quite a bit behind. So one month before she turned two she actually got her 18 month shots. I will still count this for her two year stats though. Oh well, I'll try harder with the next baby.
Eleanor did very well on this visit. We ADORE Dr. Jonathan Gold, if you are ever in need of a new pediatrician, I highly recommend his whole office. Clean, nice waiting room. Super efficient staff and wonderful nurses. And he is just fantastic. He's like a doctor out of a story book. Sorry to be so effusive, but let me tell you about her last doctor. It's a bit of a tale, so skip the next part if you aren't in the mood for a long story. Seriously, it's kinda long.
Check her out!
In the bath she was pouring water back and forth between two cups saying "Here doo doh. Doen mate mess!" (Here you go, don't make a mess.)
Carrying all her Toy Story figurines around in her large red laundry tub saying "Hode on dies" over and over. (Hold on guys.)
I was popping Clayton's back and accidentally scratched him so I said "Sorry babe". Eleanor was "helping" rub his back so she starts saying over and over "Sawee babe, sawee babe." Weeks later I was popping his back again and she took a turn rubbing and started saying it again. How did she remember that?
"Otey tow!" (Holy cow.)
Was watching Monsters Inc when something made her laugh. She shouts "I happy! Eleanor happy!"
One day while running errands I needed to feed both of us some lunch so I ran through Fazolis to get something for me so I didn't have to eat McDonalds, which I planned to go through next for her. I get my pasta and put it on the passenger seat and start to drive towards McDonalds when from the back seat I hear the saddest little voice say, "Fin fies... me hab one?" (French fries, me have one?) I love that she was hungry and thought I wasn't sharing.
I hear her saying "Where's Eleanor?" a few times. I go and look and she has her Woody doll on her head with his legs covering her face, "hiding".
I was sitting on a massage chair and she came and sat on my lap. She sat there for about 30 seconds before she started giggling and hopped off saying "Oooh! I shake!" Who taught her "shake"?
