I've been working on a quilt for Jonathan for probably a year now. Tonight, due to a very kind neighbor who watched Jonathan, I finished his quilt!! I think he likes it...
I'm very excited to finally be finished. Now I can work on one of the other half-dozen projects I have going. And it feels like his room is a bit more pulled-together.

We had the opportunity to go to the Houston Zoo on Friday. It was Jonathan's first trip to a zoo, and I'm pretty sure he enjoyed it.
We got to see a giraffe, which may have been cooler for Brian and I than Jonathan, since we understand that his initials sound like giraffe, and he doesn't quite get that yet, but he still enjoyed it.
The last thing we did was ride the train in Herman Park, which may have been the highlight of the whole trip for the Little Guy. Every time we passed a squirrel or bird, he'd wave and yell, "We're riding on a train!"
Brian and Jonathan as prairie dogs:
The otters were very playful and swam back and forth against the glass showing off for people.
Maybe Jonathan's favorite "aminal" was the lion, which did actually roar a bit, making Jonathan's day. Also cool was the fact that the lion's name was Jonathan.
