Because today we had an impromptu visit to the aquarium and even took along our little baby friend Asher, his mom came too. We spent hours watching sharks, sea turtles and sting rays. Growing up I always loved going to the aquarium and I am thrilled how much Harper enjoys climbing into these little nooks and watching the fish swim around. She was a bit unsure of what to do with the diver when he swam around…

We are officially starting to dip our toes into the potty training pool. So far we have used it a handful of times, but are  more excited about the jelly bean reward, and potty song, than anything else. Yes she is young, but after talking with our doctor she felt she was giving us the signs that she was ready. Any great tips?

Everyday I think this girl has a new word she shares with us, lately her favorite is tea. She loves “drinking” it, “cooking” it and sharing it with anyone she sits down with. Perks of a British nanny I guess.

This week the craziest thing happened, something that is almost completely unheard of in our house, the husband and I had the same day off! It’s true, aside from Christmas with the parents here, we have not had a day off together since Thanksgiving. This is not an arrangement I would recommend for new parents, but as is with most happenings in life, it’s a burden we have to live with. Needless to say, this day we were not wasting any of it.

More on this another time but I promise that we are making sure to keep our family as our tip-top priority! 

We headed off to Camden’s waterfront to make a visit to the Adventure Aquarium. I have always loved going to aquariums, and it seems the Apple has not fallen far from the tree.

Here is a little peak at our day…

1. Hippos to say ‘HI!’ to

2. Showing Harper the city

3. Now we all can enjoy sun-filled walks

4. This is us…haha

5. A daddy’s girl to the end

6. Jellyfish, they are magic

7. Counting jellyfish, “1, 3, 5, 13”

8. Petting turtles

9. The “hors,” I swear this kid is too much

10. Those little jeans get me every time

11. We snuck a peek at the new Blue Penguins little houses, I want to move in!
