"Uh-Oh! Where Water?"

Yesterday I posted about our trip to the zoo, but today I wanted to show you the highlights of Nick at the splash area outside of The Living Coast Exhibit at Brookfield Zoo. This was part of my visit with Gardenmom and her son. Both of the boys enjoyed the cool spray after hours of walking around in the hot zoo. Making the water squirt the baby is a fun pasttime, especially since he doesn't mind.

The water may have been the best part of Nick's day. He must've said "Water!" about thirty times. Check out how his diaper keeps getting more and more full of water. Those diapers can hold a lot!

Nick was running around in the spray, enjoying himself thoroughly, when suddenly the spray shut off. We're not sure why, since the map says the water doesn't turn off until 5:30, and it was 4:48, according to our cellphones. Nick decided to be a detective and figure out the problem by wandering around and looking into all the holes where water usually comes out.

Lots of parents and families were standing around the water play area, watching their children, when the water was turned off. Nick immediately started shouting, "Uh Oh! Where water?" very loudly. It made quite a few of the adults laugh out loud. I only got the tail end of his announcements on the video above, but I think you get the picture.

Mister man made me chase him across the brick so I could change his very soggy diaper and put on some clean clothes. For some reason, he doesn't like to be dressed, and he always runs when it's time to put on clothes.


  1. haha! you really know how to stretch out a batch of he doing any better, by the way?

  2. I took 130 pictures that day at the zoo--plus I have family eager to see lots of pics of Nick. Yup--I'm getting better at stretching them out.

    He was just fine after a day of normal sleeping. Woke up Friday in a great mood. Usually he takes a 3-4 hour nap during the day and sleeps 11 hours at night. We screwed up his sleep schedule, so I think that's why he was a bit of a jerk while you were here.

    He's much better now, thanks for asking. :)
