Our Little Zenock

I warned you all... my blog is dedicated to Zenock. :) I can't believe how smart he is! When he was born, they told us to count back a month for his development, but he is pretty up to date as far as 4 month olds go. He has learned so many new tricks lately and he just keeps getting better at each of them. Yesterday, he laughed out loud for the first time! It was the cutest thing I have ever heard. I was on the phone with Emily and she heard it too! He has also learned how to scoot himself around and off his blanket. He likes to scoot to the top corner of the crib each night. He is also rolling over from his tummy to his back. It is so funny when he does it, because it shocks him and he does this big arm flail. When he is on his tummy he is holding his head up so well. It is so cute to watch him pick his head up and look at you and smile.
I love playing with him and getting him to smile. His favorite game is "So Big." He likes to grab onto our fingers and tries so hard to pull himself up... but he doesn't want to sit up, he wants to stand! Another big thing is... he is teething! He is drooling and chows down on his hands. They are on the bottom and you can almost see them coming through. He is such a good baby. I couldn't ask for any better. He is starting to take really good naps during the day and he sleeps for 10 hours at night. What more could I ask for? We sure love him! He is so much fun and so cute! Last weekend we had such a good time. We went down to Shreveport, Louisiana which is about an hour and a half away. It was such a pretty drive... very green. We went to the Louisiana Boardwalk. It is a bunch of outlet stores along the Red River. There is a big bridge and a lot of fountains. It was a fun place. We wanted to take pictures, but after we got done eating it decided to down poor. So we spent most of our time indoors shopping. Which wasn't so bad. :) We found some cute fall clothes for Zenock and JC decided his new favorite store is Banana Republic... It was a good time. We will definately take pictures the next time we go down. Oh, also I got a new phone. I never did find mine. My number is the same, so call anytime. Oh my gosh... I forgot Zenock's biggest newest trick of all. He has figured out when he goes to sleep, so just before he falls asleep when I'm rocking him, he will reach up and grab a hold of my shirt so he knows when we put him down. It is really cute. All of his tricks seem so simple and may not interest a lot of you, but we are just so proud of our little Zenock! We miss you all!
