Today it's our wedding anniversary. This photo was taken on our wedding day on Feb 24, 2008.
You have to say, us hippos are slow-moving creatures. It took us almost eight years for this to happen--the picture was taken on Feb 12, 2016, when our baby Hippo was 1.5 days old.
So many things happened in the eight years, I don't know where to start. But when comparing the two pictures, the most obvious change was how puffy Mummy Hippo's paw had become! That gives you a hint of how nicely-rounded she is today :). But, to her justice, that was more due to 2.5 days of IV injections rather than her actual weight gain!
(OK, I digressed a bit).
Eight years down, a new adventure begins, this time with a new member of the family!
