Happy 29th Birthday, Grandma Ann!

Poolside, at a fancy restaurant, or just about anywhere, Z is the perfect accessory. We all helped Grandma Ann celebrate her birthday in style. Couldn't have had a better time, or had better accommodations! Thanks for letting us celebrate with you in Florida!

I love my Moby!

No, it's not the newest nickname for my whale-sized Z, it's my new baby-wrap/sling!

there comes a time in every little boy's life...

when you're gonna need someone to help defend you against unjust accusations.

if you've ever been accused of....

public indecency:

public intoxication:

or if you've just bitten off more than you can chew:

you're gonna wish you had this T-shirt!

Open mouth, Insert foot!

oh, come on, you knew that blog title was coming eventually!

Yes, it's true. The little man has discovered his feet...and oh, are they ever tasty!

it's so cool to see him sitting up by himself now! even when he starts to fall forward, he can catch himself and sit back up. but if he is falling to one side, he falls over like a St. Patrick's Day Drunk!

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

I solemnly swear...

I will not try to shove, "Just one more diaper" into the Diaper Genie, ever again.

Thank you Paulie, for coming to my rescue, and fixing said Diaper Genie. I am very grateful that I don't have to live with the guilt of destroying the Diaper Genie in a fit of laziness, only with the knowledge that the Diaper Genie is not an all-powerful bottomless pit.

In other news, Z is ridiculously strong. He tries to tear all of his toys limb from limb, and he stands up all on his own--he just needs a finger to hold on to for balance!

blink, and you'll miss it.

5 months. Already! I know they say you blink, and they're already grown up. I just didn't expect to feel like Z was grown up at 5 months. He is so big now, and he really has a personality all his own.

He knows what he likes (squash, and cuddling) and what he doesn't like (going to sleep--I think he feels he's missing out on all the fun!). He's not so sure about green beans either...

A few nights ago, I went upstairs for a moment while Paul was playing with Z on his tummy-time quilt, and when I came back down the stairs, Z was rolling over to get a better look at his daddy!

Z loves going for walks, looking around at the trees going by, and smiling at walkers, dogs, and especially other babies. He is always flirting with the little girl next door!

I can't believe I've been out of work nearly 7 months, I am enjoying every free minute with my Z!

(sorry Cubs Fans, none of you have you have sent him an outfit!)
