To celebrate Harry's second birthday, Kevin took the day off of work and we all went to the zoo. It was a gamble, since Harry was diagnosed with croup and an ear infection yesterday, and as we were having a power struggle over pushing the stroller in the zoo's parking lot, Kevin and I both had second thoughts. It turned out, however, to be the only bump in an otherwise perfect outing.

Harry feeding the giraffe:

We bought snacks for the giraffe. Last time it was weird rectangular "giraffe biscuits" but this time it was lettuce. Harry tore off little pieces and held them through the fence, saying "c'mere" and "treat" because that's how we do it with cats.

Kevin and Harry after getting off the tram:

Doesn't Harry look like he's walking the red carpet? Perhaps looking for his entourage behind him?

And the goats in the petting zoo:

This combined petting animals and washing hands with liquid sanitizer, so Harry was one happy little boy.
All in all, it's been an incredible year watching him grow and learn and do a million things I never dreamed. Happy birthday, Harrison!
