z finally said a vowel-consonant word this week. he's done well with both "in" and "on."
he can also reach doorknobs and turn them. last night while i was teaching & j was watching him, he successfully opened & closed our bedroom door.
z has fun zooming around on his little bus on the non carpeted floor - he can go really fast! we're working on throwing and catching balls. he received some new toys from g'ma & g'pa - mega blocks. they entertain him for a long time, but they're slowly spreading all around the house.
he's been enjoying the water room at the children's museum the past few times we've been there. the museum is a great way to entertain him when i haven't gotten enough sleep...
last weekend i got to stay downtown at the westin hotel all by myself. it was a wonderful break. i watched a lot of tv & slept. very relaxing! z & daddy got to hang out with his cousin j & abuelo and abuela. they went to the zoo last saturday & had lots of fun. we're looking forward to our quick trip to sunriver on labor day weekend.
