Here are some of the things we have been up to:
I bought this new basket for all of Zenock's toys... He was asleep when I brought it home and put all of his toys in it. When he woke up he went straight to it and when I turned around, this is what I found. (I'm not sure why the picture is so blurry, sorry.)
We love our little monkey
This is Zenock and JC's new jungle gym... haha. JC has wanted a bowflex since way before I married him. He found an awesome deal on ebay and I reluctantly agreed (hoping that when we move, we get into the 3 bedroom apartment!!! Pray for me!) As for now... this jungle gym sits in the middle of my kitchen. :) For the first time in my life I've heard the sentence, "Get out of the kitchen... I want to work out." Part of the "awesome deal" was going to Dallas to pick up our new bowflex. While on the way there we found Zenock's true love of music. We borrowed a friend's truck and were trying to find a good station when the song "It's ladies night" by Kool and the Gang came on the radio. When we looked back, our little guy was bobbing up and down and rocking out in his car seat. I don't think JC and I have ever laughed so hard. It is a new favorite song at our house.
Zenock has also attended nursery for the last 2 weeks in a row. When the kids in our ward are 15 mths. they let them go as long as a parent is with them. HE loves playing with all the kids... there are 2 girls and about 8 boys in our nursery, so he fits right in. They have these fun telephone cars that you can pull around and Zenock just loves them! He plays with them the whole time. So Sunday when we got home, I tied a string around his dump truck and he hasn't put it down since. It is like his little puppy dog following him around... we just might have to invest in a little puppy for him some day soon. Oh... and I bet our nursery has better treats than yours does... haha... seriously! On Sunday for snack time Zenock had: a plate full of cheetos, 2 rice cake snacks, 2 oreo cookies, 2 powdered sugar doughnuts, AND a handful of trix cereal! Talk about winding them up and sending them home!
Zenock is learning and growing so fast! He can say so many different words. New for this week, is "NO." (Yeah for us as parents!) On top of the 5 teeth he has been getting, 3 more are coming in... It has been a rough couple of weeks. We have had many sleepless nights of him kicking us out of bed (last resort) to even me giving up and getting in his crib... yes... HIS crib! After an hour or so of him lovingly trying to shove his toes up my nose, I gave up and took him to our bed. Hopefully, we are almost done with the teething process.
