JC has Zenock's future all planned out... High School sports, college sports, and Pro Athlete by the time he is 20! Check out the quality of that basketball... The other day, JC told me he needed a new basketball. We went to Target and they just didn't have the right kind. They were $20 dollars and I was thinking that was kind of high. Well, we went to a sports store and I told JC to just run in and look and I would stay in the car with Zenock. When he came out he stuffed the receipt in his mouth and wouldn't give it to me. When I finally got a good look at it, I about died! The basketball cost $60!!! That is one nice basketball you are looking at! JC's excuse for buying it was that it will last forever and Zenock will be playing with it someday. Haha! Sooner than later. He loves it! JC is testing it out tonight on the court... we will have to see what everyone thinks about it. JC's schedule changed this week and he now gets home everyday at 12:30! This week has been so nice to have him home. We have instituted family nap time every day at 1:00. We'll see how long it lasts... For now Zenock and I are loving all the time that we get to spend with him.

Tempers and Tantrums...
Zenock loves his toys and loves to sing and bounce up and down to the music. He plays so well by himself. Whenever we sit down to watch a movie, we usually end up watching him put on a show rather than the movie!
Zenock has had a huge growth spurt in the last month or so. He has gotten SO big and even clothes that he got for Christmas don't fit him anymore. He is cruising the furniture and can even stand on his own for a second. I'm sure it won't be long until he is walking! Where has my sweet baby gone?? He has also developed quite the little temper this week and is full of tantrums! I'm not sure what it is, but he is having major parent anxiety. JC and I will be playing with him and walk into the kitchen or bedroom and Zenock will start screaming... and this isn't just a little scream, it sounds like he could have just broke an arm or something. He will be crawling after us as fast as he can with big huge tears streaming down his face. As soon as we pick him up in go the fingers and the tears stop! Amazing! He has also decided he hates his diaper being changed and throws huge tantrums when I change it. (This can be quite the ordeal in the middle of the night!) How do we help this?? Any advice?? He has also been grinding his teeth lately... Has anyone else had kids that do this? It sounds like he is going to grind them away!
