Giraffe loving little dare-devil...

Ok... so the title to this entry may be a little odd... but to briefly explain we went to the zoo today and when we came home Iain decided to perform a few daredevil antics. (so there you have it short and sweet.)

The last time we went to the zoo, when we went to the Giraffe exhibit, we went only to find out that the Giraffes had gone in for the day, so we left that time a bit disappointed. But this time we went early to make sure we got to see them! We actually were the first to see them, because we overheard them on the radio saying they were letting the giraffes out, so we booked it over to the lookout! We were definitely not disappointed... All I can say, is God had such a great sense of humor when He made the Giraffe!...How can you not LOVE these gentle creatures. They came right up to us, ready to get some morning loves from the visitors. Iain and I fed the giraffes crackers and sweet potatoes. Iain absolutely loved it... he kept saying "Hi!" over and over in his sweet little voice to the giraffes whenever they would come close. It was absolutely the cutest thing! So here are a couple of pics from the zoo...

When we got home, he was absolutely wound up, and decided that it was time to start jumping off of the couch and into the beanbag on the floor...absolutely no fear. After he had done it a few times he then decided that he wanted to do a somersault off of the couch. That one got me a bit startled, but he just giggled and got right back up on the couch... go figure...That's my boy!

LOL! What a cutie! Braeden has hit that jumping stage a little late, and it sounds like an elephant crashing into the floor! The other day I caught him jumping off my old FIRM Fanny Lifter (stackable steps). The sound was unreal.

Just wait till he gets to the "Mommy look at me!" stage!
