More pictures of Isobel at the zoo.

Trips to the zoo and various local parks are pretty much the only exciting thing we do these days. Luckily, Isobel is just a BABY and so these places continue to thrill her. This most recent time at the zoo, she discovered her power animal. Behold:

Honestly, though, she was entranced, and followed every peacock we saw. She also does a pretty good (loud) imitation of one, and has continued to burst out in peacock song whenever the mood strikes her. Here she is pretending to be a baby peacock in an egg:


Trains do NOT fit the peacock theme. They also happen to be TERRIFYING.


Here we are at a park in Manitou Springs, which is Colorado Springs' hippie nemesis city.


And this is at our local park:

Wow, Isobel has grown!!!! Does she have a nickname, btw?

Well, when Isobel was a newborn, my teenage brother coined the nickname 'Iso-bizzle' (or 'Izzle-Bizzle,' depending who you ask) and that has evolved into 'The Bizzle' and then 'Bizzley.' I have also developed a habit of calling her 'snook,' as in rhymes with 'book.' She refers to her self with a syllable that sounds something like 'Bow', as in the bow of a ship.
But no, she doesn't have any serious nicknames. In school, she will definitely just be Isobel. (I hope. :)
