Drink Up

Zach stole my water glass after I'd finished drinking, and was entertained for a good chunk of time. We tried giving him his sippy cup, so he could actually drink some water, but he went right back to my empty glass!

self portrait

Z and I were sitting together, and I wanted to capture the moment. He was enjoying a puff, and in a great mood. I swung the LCD screen on my camera around so that I could see the picture I was trying to take, and Z was entirely amused by the picture of the two of us he could see on the screen, and started laughing.

Also, I need to make a note to myself, to wear more sunscreen. Look at those freckles!! Zachary, please take after your Daddy when it comes to sunburns vs suntans.

Laughing with Pepere

Pepere came down to see Z for the weekend, and as you can see they definitely got a kick out of each other!

Z has TEETH!

well, one tooth anyway! =)

Z has been fussy, but not as drooly as I had anticipated. Nights are the worst. We put him down and he just cries, and chews on his hands. We've had to stealth into his bedroom and put orajel on his gums to get him to settle down enough to sleep. And then one morning, we noticed a little speck of white, and you could see the top ridge of the the bottom tooth poking up through the gums. Now to teach him to bite food, not Mommy...

and here's a close up of the Tooth!!

Winner, Winner, Chicken Dinner.

We got the go ahead to start Z on some MEAT. He wasn't quite as excited as we were. However, as with most new foods, by the end of the meal, he's just happy to be eating. I think the last picture gives you an idea of how he eventually felt about chicken. Probably something similar to what his Poppa's first words were: More Meat!


Greetings, My Minions.

First we will take over the house, then, THE WORLD.

Zachary smiles everytime his DaDa comes in the room. He's so happy when Paul comes home for lunch, or home at the end of the day. I figure he's probably tired of playing with only his momma for hours, and is happy to have his Dada to be his playmate!

my sweet baby Z

Paul took these beautiful pictures of me and Z on Mother's Day. Z was very interested in what was going on with the deck, including the leaf he leaned over and crushed in his chubby little fingers!

He's such a good baby, and I feel so lucky to be home with him. I enjoy being his momma, and taking care of him everyday. I peek into his room before I go to bed, because it makes me happy to see him sleep so peacefully. I have to admit that he completely wears me out sometimes, and it's nice to see him fast asleep and not trying to escape...

He's on the move now, not crawling, but rolling all over the place. He can literally roll from one end of the room to the other, and he can scoot backwards when he's on his belly. There's no leaving the room for even a second now. (it's definitely time to install the baby gates on the stairs!)

Z and the Mouse

If it fits in his goes in. We've thought for a long time that teeth would be coming in any day. And then days go by, and nothing happens. He drools like crazy, chews on his fingers (and toys, and his momma's limbs, and anything else in reach) and then after a couple days he stops, and still no teeth. Not that he's that much worse off, this boy can gum anything! We'll just have to be patient, and put up with the ZombieBaby until his gums stop hurting!
