more craftiness

made a fancy little doll dress

Zain has been closing his mouth and drooling a lot less today

The hook and eye closure is hidden under a crossover back. Unfortunately, Snow White can do nothing to hide her V.P.L. in this form fitting evening gown. Sorry, Snow.

Christian is wearing a tie~!

These are pictures of a rare moment where Ezri let Zain touch her, and she didn't shudder and shiver in disgust. In fact, she kicked me off of the bed and told me she was going to read a book to Zain - then started kissing his head! He looks shocked.
Then, he started to warm up and snuggle with her.
(the yellow on his shirt is from drooling the iron suppliments)



That's right, Christian is off to a job interview in Morgan Hill. YAY!

In other news - Ezri recognizes Obama on TV and shouts, "Kim, look! It's Ogoly Moogolly" Then, blesses "President Momomma" in her prayer.
I was surprised, because we don't talk politics...but, the TV has been on inauguration coverage since Sunday. There's something to be said for repetition. . .

She has been singing this song I don't recognize, "Follow the comet, follow the comet . . ." I figured she must have picket it up on Diego, or Dora, or maybe the Wonder Pets - (following a comet sounds like some adventure they would go on.) and I figured she just didn't have the tune quite right, because it was so flat and dreary . . . then, last night while we are putting pajamas on, a song comes on the Children's Songbook CD, and Ezri gets all excited, stands up on top of the chair, and starts belting out "Follow the comet, he knows the way!" then falls down into the chair in a dramatic fainting spell.

I about died laughing, because she had the tune exactly right to "Follow the Prophet." The song must have 10 versus. It's no wonder she picked up the tune, at least. Too bad it isn't exactly a plesant melody!

I am still breastfeeding, but this was too cute - he still gets a bottle every once and a while - and this one he guzzled down all by himself.

Ezri gave Zain all his toys while he was swinging. He's growing so fast. Ezri loves to hand him a rattle and when he grabs onto it, she will squeal, "He likes it! Look, mama! Look! Zain likes him toy!" He is doing really well. The iron supplements are back in the mix - his last blood test was just a little low - so we are back to some interesting diaper changes. But whatever he needs to be healthy.


We have "dance time" when the dance clothes are clean and dry - so, about once a week . . .



I wasn't going to post today, but, what the heck - why not . . . The first, oh, 5 seconds. So, if it's loading slow, you're not missing anything but documentation of my messy apartment after that . . . video

Funny things

I always mean to post the funny things Ezri says, then I forget them!

She loves playing Little Mermaid in the bathtub. I hear her say, "Oh, Flounder, don't be a guppy. Aughh Shark! Shark! Where's the seagull?"

But my favorite is when she talks to Zain when she doesn't thin I'm looking.
"Hey! Zain Buddy Boy! You awake! You open him eyes!! Awww, Zain Buddy!"
