 DSCN1755Don’t let those “smiles” fool you. None of us were very happy on the plane. Zane does NOT know the meaning of ‘sitting’, so keeping him in our laps was like wrestling a greased pig. Luckily, he fell asleep during take-off on three out of the four flights and slept the whole way.


In fact, I’m pretty sure the only time he smiled was when he was laughing at me because I had a white, paper bag on my face and was making funny noises….

Life long motion sickness + Migraine = Barf Bag City

On a less gross note, Zane was amazed by the fans blowing on him.DSCN1753Matt had his last (Thank You, Lord) interview in Denver and we decided to make a little trip out of it and pay a visit to Seth and Laurie. Somehow, I didn’t get ONE picture of Z with them!  It was great to catch up and we were thankful that they let us stay with them. I’m pretty sure Zane served as a good method of birth control for them!

Surprisingly, Zane loved the Aquarium. He met Scuba Steve….DSCN1770 Then decided to see how he would look in scuba gear…DSCN1792He looooved the ducks and thought it was pretty funny when I made ‘fish lips’. He would open and close his mouth like he was trying to imitate me.DSCN1763 DSCN1779DSCN1777

This picture of Zane and Matt says so much…..DSCN1772The end of the aquarium came at the perfect time. While Zane loved it, the attention of a 1 year old only lasts so long….

One cute boy



Zane has finally figured out what this camera-thing is all about. Matt got him dressed yesterday and he looked so cute…couldn’t resist taking his picture.  I sat him down. No lie, he started posing. Oh, fun stuff. He just tickles me! Check out his poses.

DSCN1736DSCN1738DSCN1739Why is he not on the cover of Parents Magazine yet? I so should’ve sent his picture in to Regis & Kelly.   He really is cute, right? There’s no way this mom could be partial…

Fourteen months


DSCN1680As long as I post before he turns fifteen months, it still counts, right? And that’s still 16 days away. Which is more than half a month. So if you round down, I’m still closer to fourteen than fifteen months. The months seem to go by so quickly these days. He’s really starting to look like a little boy in his pictures now.

He’s learned how to get out of the chair now. Turn around, lay on his belly, and go feet first. Great that he falls less. Not so great for pictures.  (Note the arm holding him in place)

fourteen months

Some things he’s doing this month…. He kinda chuckles when he sees someone he recognizes. Like a deep “huh huh”.  When I tell him to tell someone hi, he waves and usually gives sheepish grin.  He carries around our phones, or anything similar to a phone, holds it up to his ear, and walks around saying, “Uh huh, uh huh, uh huh.”  When I wiggle my fingers like I’m about to tickle him, he grins really big and starts wiggling his fingers, too.


Even though Matt insists that this is my blog and not our blog, I like to get some input from him. Maybe someday Zane will want to read this stuff, and he might want to know what his dad was thinking, too. So, from Matt, “Zane is a head injury waiting to happen, but he is wonderfully entertaining and I love him so much.”

That’s good stuff, coming from Matt. Pretty sure he’s had a head injury or two in his day. But it’s true. The knot that Zane got in KC is still present. As soon as it starts to heal he re-injures it. Somehow, every time he falls, he manages to hit that exact.same.spot. Every.darn.time. I texted Matt today and asked him if we should get Zane a helmet. I was (sorta) kidding. Ok, I was totally serious. I am determined that it will be healed my the time I take his fifteen month pictures. Or at least by his Aunt Lindsey’s wedding. May 29th. Surely….by then?

We took him to the park for the first time the other day. Our neighborhood park just doesn’t really have enough stuff for kiddos as small as him. He hated swinging. Loved climbing the stairs. And he was ok with the slide. But oh, so cute. Oh, and he loves sticks. I’m sure that’s an accident waiting to happen.
