Parnell and I both took the day off on Mercer's birthday to hang out with our little nugget.  When she woke up, we staged an obligatory balloon drop much to her delight.  She couldn't be the only child in Dallas not to get balloons in her crib on her birthday, so I caved.  Turns out, whoever started this trend first is a genius.  Mercer's day was completely made.

Following some balloon play, we had donuts for breakfast.  I took a few cute pictures but do not be fooled.  She was not a fan. 

After some down time, we got dressed and ready and headed out to the Dallas Zoo.  Mercer was on her best behavior for our outing.  I wouldn't say she "loved" the zoo, but she was definitely "content" at the zoo.  There seemed to be a lot of judgement from her.  At one point, we took a break and had some ice cream.  We offered some to M being the sweet people we are, and she was not into it. Cut to us feeding the giraffes and Mercer attempting to eat all of the celery herself and not sharing with the creatures in front of her.  Celery > ice cream.  Her preferences blow my mind. 

We ended the day at happy hour (dinner).  
It was such a wonderful day with our little.
