Anyway, thats an update on my sick little baby. We are seeing a light at the end of the tunnel, so I am happy! Ok, he is letting me know my two minutes on the computer are up, so I am off!

What do you think?
Funny, just plain stupid, or a little of both?

Yesterday I started feeling like I was getting sick, so Daniel saved the day and took off work for a bit to take Z to the Doctor for me. He is now on some meds, and I am hoping this is just a short lived thing. He had a great night's sleep last night, thanks to my oh-so-wonderful mother-in-law. He only woke up twice! (and Daniel got up with him both times) It felt wonderful to be able to get some sleep.
Anyway, that's whats been going on the past couple of days in our house. Hopefully I will have a good update in the next day or so. :)

We visited a church yesterday. And by we, I mean all three of us. There were over a dozen children in the service, so I felt really comfortable keeping Zac in there. He made noises while he played, he flirted with a girl behind us, Daniel got up and walked him around... and you know what? No one cared. No one was phased by it. No one "informed" me that they have a nursery in hopes that I would use it. They welcomed a baby in the service. And because of that, I was able to enjoy myself.
I really enjoyed the service we went to yesterday.
And its been a while since I have been able to say that.

Get this: There is a basket underneath to hold diapers and such, there are two cupholder type things big enough to hold water bottles and or sippy cups. There are quite a few pockets/pouches to hold keys, wallets, toys, etc... The stroller is extremely lightweight and the handles aren't really low to the ground! In fact, if you prefer, you can buy the stroller with Adjustable Handles for only $10 more. (which is the one I bought) Oh yeah. I haven't told you the best part about it. It has an adjustable canopy. Thats right. It locks into 542 different positions so that your child can be shaded, no matter what direction the sun is in! (ok, so I may have exaggerated a little, but its pretty close) I bought it in grey, but they also have one in pink and red.
So if you are looking for a freaking awesome umbrella stroller, I suggest going to Target.com and ordering this one or this one with the cool handles. Its a pretty good stroller for a not so bad price. I have definitely got my money's worth out of it after only a month.
Anyway, here are some pictures of our lovely afternoon! :)
attempt to get their attention :)
Thats all folks.
Have a great day!

Notice how he is sitting... with his legs folded in front of him. If he stretches far enough he can balance on both knees for a couple seconds before his legs flip out from under him and he falls on his tummy. Poor thing. He doesnt seem to be too frustrated at the fact that bouncing on his butt doesn't get him anywhere, so I am hoping that one day he will get frustrated enough to actually go somewhere. But for now I guess I should just be happy that he is happy, even if he is immobile. :)

Still cant come up with a new blog name. So I am sticking with Randominity until something amazing pops into my head. (Thanks to those who actually gave suggestions though. You all get a cookie).
I have been walking for 20 min. every day for the past week. (Zachariah has a short attention span, so I am stuck at the 20 min. mark) I am hoping to keep up the walking thing, but I have a bad habit of being lazy... so wish me luck.
I had a TERRIFIC Mothers Day, thanks to my fabulous husband. :)
That's all for now. I am sure I will be back later with something of equal or less importance. :)

Well after bath time, Zachariah was sitting on his changing table and was getting settled into his pajamas, when all of a sudden he decides to lunge (at lightning speed) for the Desiten. Before Daniel or I can catch him, he hits his head on the side of the changing table and ends up with this sucker on his head.
So he got his very first owie. After lots of ice, the swelling went down and it looks a ton better this morning. Overall, he was a real trouper, we are so proud of him! :)

I noticed that I haven’t really blogged recently. They have basically been blurbs and pictures of my adorable child. I guess when you are around one little person every single minute of the live long day, that tends to become all you have time to think about.
Since it has been really nice out, we have been taking advantage of the weather. So without further ado, here are some pictures of Z playing in his new pool:

Here is my short hair. I cut it all off last week and regretted it almost immediately. I am slowly getting to the point where I am not depressed when I walk by a mirror, but I really miss my long hair!!! I haven't really experimented much with the "short do" but its been REALLY easy so far. Zachariah was not too happy though. When he goes to pull my hair he just gets a handful of air. Muahahaha.
All in all, I am glad I cut it... but I probably wont do it again. I just love my long hair too much.
Are you happy now Tammi??? :)
Oh, and in case you are wondering... in the picture Zachariah is a little distracted watching a baby bird fall out of its nest. (No worries, Amanda saved it)
