Hope Baby Gil isn't quite so furry...

I've been a little under the weather all weekend, so I've spent all but about 3 hours of it sleeping. Which always bums me out, so today I was super excited when Aaron got the opportunity to go to an exotic animal park by us today and we got to play with some wild animals! Granted, I probably should have laid around and stayed out of the heat. But it was such a great day!My mom couldn't help but tag along, and we got to play with a 3-month-old tiger who was feeling very playful and wouldn't stay still for the picture. Notice: my cankles are temporarily gone again and my ankles have shown back up. I promise to post a pic of the swelling once it returns... These half-days have really helped. :)
We also got to hold a serval, which is a type of wild cat. This little guy is about 5 months old and won't get a whole lot bigger. I wasn't too sure if he was going to be over my weight limit for holding, but turns out he isn't really all too heavy.Then we held the lemur, which was my favorite of all. He's the softest little furball ever and he licked us the whole time we held him which was super cute.

Too bad Gil had to enjoy the day from inside the uterus, because I'm sure he or she would have loved it! Pretty sure this place is on our list of birthday party destinations...

My mom was sporting one of her many Grandma t-shirts today. She was only wearing Grandma-to-Be, but has apparently decided that Gil is close enough to full-baked that she's switching it up!

We had a great time, I got out of the house for a little while, and Gil got to meet some really cool animals! Can't wait for this little person to join us so we don't look like the creepy adults who are always lurking at kid places...
P.S. I'm due one month from today!!! And I'd like to say congrats to Kate at This Place is Now a Home. She had her adorable little boy, Owen, yesterday!
