For her first birthday, she and I will visit the Tisch Children's Zoo at Central Park and then we'll go back on Sunday with Joe. We figured at this point we can finally get a zoo pass and start going to all of the zoos this year! The zoo even has a little hatchlings class that we'll try to sign her up for soon. They let them play with animals, learn about an exhibit and do an art activity in the class.
In other news, Liliana has finally learned how to use her sippy cup with a straw. She is getting much better at clapping appropriately (when you're happy and you know it, yay! and good job!). She loves waving and "talking" to the dogs she sees on the street. We frequently go to the dog parks in the neighborhood and our local pet store to see cats and dogs.
Stay tuned for birthday pictures Thursday night!
