Dear Brooklyn,

We decided to do most of your birthday celebrations on Friday this year.

Lame, I know, but you are two and wouldn't know the difference.

But we still wanted to make the day a little special, so your dad and Christina both took long lunches and we went to the zoo!

You weren't as excited about the whole thing as I thought you would be.

You just kind of stared at some of the animals and then walked away.

You did like the monkeys, though. One monkey sat right against the window for us. It was pretty cool.

You liked to talk to some of the animals. To the penguins you said "Eat fish. Eat fish." To the lion you said "kitty, come." To the pig you said "Pig, water." and to a monkey you said "Monkey eat grass. Eat grass."

It was a nice birthday afternoon treat.

Happy Birthday my little two year old!

I love you.

Sincerely, Lori
