This one is for you, Dex!!!
The other day Beth dropped Dexter off to hang with Zane for a short bit while she ran to get her hair cut (that is a "must do on her own" mama thing for sure!). The two of them fully explored the kitchen and cooked up some good eats for sure!
Also, Beth has let us know that Dexter is so into our blog page that every time she pulls out her computer Dex does the sign for Zane (which she has set as the sign for "Z" up near his head because that is where you do the sign for boy - if that make sense to you then you will think to that it is so awesome and cute!) and they have to sit down and watch all the Zane videos. Several times a day as you can imagine! So, this one is for you Dexter! You are in it too!! What a cutie!
"This is my 'I'm too sexy' look.
"This is my 'I feel sick' look."
"This is my 'I think I am going to cry' look."
"This is my 'Dad, when are you going to stop?' look."
"This is my 'Ya know I could be reading my books or something instead?' look."
He is so happy!

Have I shared this??!!??
A couple of weeks ago Zane figured out how to walk behind his walker. I have not really gotten a good movie of this but this is a little short preview. He is so cute toddling behind the walker and he gets so proud of himself!
Applesauce first, then bath.
Our sweet sleepy boy
On days after the co-op he just crashes from the heat and because he just gets himself so busy!
I loved this though with his butt sticking up in the air. He just started doing this once in a while and I was glad I caught it with the camera.
Tuesdays are fun days...

Protests, Showers & Sweet Rides
Last Saturday was busy and filled with all sorts of playing and political fun. We had a busy day planned in Fort Myers with a Nurse-In to participate in (a protest of Applebees breastfeeding policies) and a baby shower to attend. In between all of that, Paul went to pick up his new ride! He is so excited about his new bike that he bought with his all too generous birthday money.
The protest of Applebees may have been on your local news last Saturday because all over the country protests were planned because of an incident that happened in an Applebees in Kentucky.
Local news clip with video: Breastfeeding Protest
This is just an unbelievably domestic picture of me. Taking a break from SEWING to feed the babe! What a day!
Our little flautist
When Sara, Sam & Maya were here they brought with them a very fitting gift for this household. They brought the super sized band from the great toy company Melissa & Doug!! We love their toys and actually Zane already had a small set they carry but many of the instruments did not overlap! So now we have enough for so many kids to have a super huge band! Well, after they left Zane was still discovering new instruments and as I was in the kitchen cooking I heard the little flute (recorder really but I like to jazz it up a bit!) noise. I thought Paul was playing it for him but realized he was on the phone! Zane had figured out how to make it make noise!! For a few days after that he would pick up everything and try and blow into it to make noise!! Pretty cute! (Sorry the video is a little dark. When the boy plays the flute lighting is just not something I think about I guess.)
AND as you can see blogger has added a GREAT feature where I can load the video directly on the blog page! I am so excited by this! It took quite a bit longer to load but hopefully they will fine tune those things. Enjoy!

Paul Birthday Weekend
Maya: "Look at mine. Mine are much better."
Zane: "I mean, what is this anyway? All the chicks at the playground will think I am a sissy ballarina!"
Maya: "I like shoes. You can give them to me! I will wear both pairs even!"
Zane: "Whatever. I guess this is what they want. Gosh!"
Maya (in her head): "Yeah I will show you whatever when I see you trying to look at any chicks at the playground!"

Birthday Card from Ben & Rachael
Check out the coolest birthday card Paul got for his birthday!! He got it in the mail last week from Ben and Rachael. They made some CDs with new music for us and used them as the bike "wheels." They added to Paul's awesome bike fund! You guys know how to put together a rockin' cool card!!!
