Kid’s Day in the Park

We met some friends in Newburyport for Kid’s Day in the Park this morning. It was basically a mini “Touch a Truck”, which Zach loved! He got to go inside a big truck, a police car, a sheriff’s car, a police bike, an ambulance, a fire truck and an MG Midget. He had a great […]

First Time Bowling

We took Zach bowling for the first time yesterday.  Since we have candlepin bowling here, we knew he could handle the weight of the balls.  It was fun (or at least, HE had fun!) but it was exhausting!  I had to push the ball with him, otherwise it got stuck halfway or it rolled back […]

On March 4th we took a trip to Florida for Darren’s cousin’s wedding. It was Zach’s first time on an airplane and he did so great! He watched TV, played with his Magna Doodle and stickers and ate animal crackers. He had a great time in Florida and enjoyed the nice weather. We tried to […]

More Walking

Here’s a recent video of Zachary walking.  He’s taking more and more steps every day.  Soon enough he’ll choose to walk instead of crawl!

First Steps

I won’t call him a walker just yet, but he has finally taken some real steps.  I’ve known he could do it for a while now, I think he’s just lazy and lacked confidence (and I’m sure having fluid in his ears didn’t help his balance).  Here’s a video of some of his first stumbling […]

First Haircut

I didn’t want to do it, but Darren had been begging for weeks.  Finally I couldn’t even tame Zachary’s hair after a bath (he had such long wings!), so I agreed to take him to Snip-Its.  They did such a good job (even though it’s shorter than I like).  He was able to watch cartoons […]
