I'd like to start this post by saying it's getting harder and harder to take pictures of this kid.

Unless he's sleeping, of course.

Sometimes he'll hold still enough for a picture, like these at church.

Whee! Having fun driving around the grocery store.

Eating some spring roll.

There's a library near here that has a really great place to play, and his mother takes him there whenever she can.

Zoo Visit

Saturday was his first visit to a zoo. This one was the National Zoo. It was the first weekend with nice weather we've had, so we decided to go. Unfortunately, so did about half of everybody who lives anywhere near.

We saw some animals we hadn't seen before, like this maned wolf from South America:

Not sure why, but there was a fire engine in the zoo, also.

We saw the famous pandas.

An Indian elephant:

I'm not sure how, but his mom gets the animals to look right at the camera.

They even had a dinosaur. It's a movie called The Enormous Egg from 1967. Elijah liked it.

Then he got to ride a bear.

We saw an alligator. We kept our distance.

Then we saw a dragon.

The whole trip was predictably exhausting for the little guy.

First Haircut

His hair finally got long enough to need cutting.

He got to sit on a big cushion.

Then he got this big sheet that covered his hands.

He really didn't like getting his hair wet.

Actually, he didn't like any part of it after that point.

Just a quick aside, but this guy had the most useful tattoo I've seen, especially for somebody who cuts hair:

Finally, it finished, and his mom took that sheet thing off.

These weekends are sure tiring. It takes all a kid can do to keep from falling asleep when he's playing.

But, then sometimes his dad will make some cake and strawberries and that makes the weekend better.

We went to another birthday party, this one for a 2-year old. Elijah got to eat his very own pizza.

He then played while the birthday girl opened her presents.

This picture has nothing to do with anything.

Then, this morning, he got his very own blueberry pancakes.
