Thea is now 17 months old! She had a very exciting month because we took her to New York City for the first time. Heather and Amy had dinner with us one night, which was the high point of the trip, of course, as was hanging out with friends we hadn't seen in ages.
While I went to a conference, Todd and Thea fun walking around the city and Central Park. They went to the zoo and saw a polar bear, sea lions, seals, penguins, all kinds of monkeys, birds, and even bats. In the Children's Zoo, she saw sheep, llamas, pigs, and a cow. On the streets of New York, she saw horses for the first time ever. I think it totally freaked her out; they're much bigger than they look in books!
