Granma & Granpa H got a new dog last week, and when Zach met her
the first time, it was quite traumatic for all involved.
Josie barked like crazy - high-pitched, loud schnauzer bark, and
Zach cried and cried and cried. Runny nose, the whole works.
Finally, after 10 minutes of soothing both parties, a truce
was reached...and now they are best buddies!
I think Zach loves her cuz she's about his size.
- Loves to "drive" his milk cup around on his tray making "car noises"
- Saw his first ladybug on Saturday and was completely fascinated. In fact, when we went outside yesterday, he went to the spot we saw it and looked for it again
- Is kind of freaked out by ants and gnats...there are some gnats that live around the base of our ficus tree, and he goes to look at them and makes a funny, intense noise/whine when he sees them. I know he does the same thing at Grams'
- Has started saying "uh-oh" when something drops/falls/spills/moves
- Has started making "kissing" noises on occasion when asked for a kiss
- Sometimes groans with the effort of picking up a ball (a soccer ball for example) that he is pretending (for lack of a better word) is very heavy--this cracks me up!
- Loves to kiss the pets, and is getting much more generous about giving people kisses as well
I laughed out loud at this...

Zachary started out sitting on the washer and dryer,
but slowly inched his way along the counter to the kitchen sink
(I guess he thought if he went slowly, I wouldn't notice)
When he made it to the sink, he was in HEAVEN, playing with the water.
He likes conducting experiments to see how different things react in water
Inching into the small sink...
...and now into the big sink....
(notice all the kitchen utensils in the sink--victims of experiments)
Now checking out the sink stopper
What a silly little monkey!
He was totally soaked when I finally took him out
of the sink--about an hour later--but he had
SO much fun.
Now he wants to do it every day....
But he was a trooper--we got some ice and his blanket and rocked together for about 10 minutes before he decided he was feeling better (tho not looking better at all) and off chasing Cleo again.
