(Can you tell we are loving this new video camera???? AND with all these new post in a row, can you tell the Zane has been taking a REALLY long nap??!!)
Click here for Bath Time Fun!
He got a few new bath toys for Christmas and he was testing them out. We have to say, though, that the yogurt cup is still a winner!
For Christmas Zane got a Tee-Pee from his Aunt Rae and Uncle Bob! It is the most fun and cute gift EVER and Zane LOVES IT! He just can't get enough of it. He is now in it several times a day with his toys or stuffed animals.
Click here of a video of Zane in his tee-pee the day he got it over at Aunt Rae and Uncle Bob's house.
I will put up more pics of it soon. It is set up in our playroom and he is having so much fun with it! She made a mat for the bottom and a matching pillow and she set up a stuffed horse in it when she gave it to him! It was so perfect and cute we just can not get enough of it all!
Thank you Rae and Bob for all your thoughtful, hard work! You guys are the BEST! Zane loves you so much!
Zane hugging his horsey!
Since we had been all over and from house to house for the holidays, Zane was exhausted and had been hard to put down to sleep. I took the tee-pee in their office and it was great because it just gave him a small space to focus on and tuned it all out! He feel fast asleep and took a little snooze in his new tee-pee!

Today is a big day at the Holimon house! Mimi, Uncle Ben and Grandad are assembling his brand new playset! This is Zane's BIG Christmas present from so many people! Many have pitched in to help fund this big project (Mimi & Papa, Uncle Ben & Aunt Rachael, Grandad, Nana, Jim & Grammie, Aunt Maggie & Uncle Chris, Gradeaux, Great Uncle Mark).
This is just the beginning of what seems like it will be a complicated and long project.
I will try to keep all posted on the progress.
(Just click on the link above to see the video. Blogger just takes too darn long sometimes to upload these videos!)

The many "dipper" faces...
They are hung and filled to the brim. Sara thought they were going to be too big. Well, not for us! They have goodies galore!
Zane trying to put one on his head.
He loved the bells on the one stocking.
Zane and Daddy watching Rudolph on TV. He actually watched for about 5 minutes (the longest he has ever watched TV) and then fell fast asleep! It was really sweet.
Zane got a singing/dancing snowman from Larry and Denise. He just thought it was the funniest thing that he could turn it on and off!

Man, those books must be boring, heh? Snore.
He doesn't sleep with us anymore but in those early morning hours it is nice to catch those last couple of hours of sleep together. Those morning hours will always be special...
My sleeping boyz... so sweet. These are the moments that I start to feel all sweet and fuzzy.
Just check out that face in this one. He wasn't appreciating the flash too much!
And Mommy gets some time to snooze too.
Going back and looking through a BUNCH of pics that I would like to post I came across some birthday photos that I think are special...
Zane got a beautiful card in the mail from his Uncle Ben and Aunt Rachael. It was beautifully decorated with colorful leaves that they picked up in their yard and waxed. They also included quite a stack of leaves for Zane to play with. Inside, the card read:
Why do leaves change color, you ask?
Leaves change color in the fall because the green chlorophyll, which is part of a trees food factorie, disappears for winter. As the green fades away, we begin to see yellow and orange colors that were covered up by the green chlorophyll. Bright reds and purples are caused by glucose, tree food, being trapped in the leaf.
As you eagerly make your first step toward walking, may your falls be graceful and soft. Like a leaf coming to rest on the earth by a gentle breeze.
We look forward to seeing you in the mountains on fall.
We love you, Rachael & Benjamin
Well, Zane may not totally understand how cool this card is, but we sure do! It was beautiful and we have a stack of wonderful leaves that we can pull out and let Zane play with once in a while!
You guys rock!
Aunt Lara came down from school in Gainesville to spend the weekend for Zane's birthday. It was such a good visit and Zane really likes hangin' with his Aunt Lala.
Paul and Lara set out to cut the pumpkins for the party decor...

Mimi & Papa got Zane the "Learning Tower" for his birthday! This is so awesome! It allows him to get up to the counter with us and eat or help "cook." It also can turn into a puppet theater or a desk in a few years.
