After 6 long years, a multitude of tears and tantrums, and a final moment of logic and bravery, Zane took the big plunge into two wheeled riding.

Reid has this thing for apples. He really, really likes them. But he likes them the best whole. It is crazy to me how well he eats a whole apple though.

Fillings are not nearly as much fun as previously thought.
Although the technician said she did great. She was a bit squirmy but tolerated the whole thing very well. She cried on the way home as the numbing was wearing off. Poor baby. Maybe she will let me brush her teeth more now.

L: You're the boss. Right daddy?
E: Yep. I'm always going to be the boss. Even when your a big girl like Kaytie. (Who is 15)
L: Yep. When I'm a big girl like Kaytie you're still going to be the boss. I'm still going to tell you that you're the boss.
E: Take note. On April 21, 2012 at 6 pm Lucy Fern said that when she is 15 years old she is still going to tell me that I'm the boss.
L: Yep. You are still the boss.
Anyone else see the need to document this conversation for all eternity???

Height: 30.5" (65%)
Weight: 23 lbs. (47%)
The majority of our doctor appointment was spent talking about the few things I have noticed with Reid. First off, he really isn't talking. He says ma-ma, but I don't know for sure that he is talking to me. He says it when I am around but it doesn't seem like he is calling for me exactly. Second, he is a horrid eater. HORRID. He is by far the pickiest baby I have ever had. He just doesn't want anything to eat with the rest of us. He loves fruit. He adores crackers and the only protein I can get into him is peanut butter. And the occasional McDonald's hamburger. He continues to be milk intolerant and only has a passing interest in coconut milk (which is the supplement I seem to have landed on with him). Third, he had an ear infection. Still. I had taken him into the walk-in-clinic on Friday and he still had a raging ear infection even with antibiotics on board for 5 days. So we ended up switching him to a different medicine. It is possible that this whole ear infection bit may have something to do with his speech. Time will tell I suppose.

Zane is a pretty amazing kid. He has a heart for people that amazes me all the time. I don't know what it is about him but he has been gifted with incredible compassion and generosity. Just the other day we were hanging out and he came up to me, gave me 75 cents, hugged me and told me I was the best mom ever. Ummmmm.... melt my heart a bit!

There is a really fun play area for the itty bitties that includes a slide. Apparently that could have been the beginning, middle and end for Reid. He was enthralled with slide and even when I tried to distract him from it he kept going back to it again and again.
Head first was a favorite.
Feet first worked too!
Zane desperately wanted to have a turn playing with the water cannons in the courtyard. Note to self: Play with the cannons first thing because later in the day there is a terrible line to have a turn.
Zane finally got a turn and had oodles of fun.
One section of the science center had a corner mirror with provided oodles of fun for the kids. Reid was particularly fond of this baby he found in the mirror. Many kisses were given.
"Why hello pretty girl!"
Took a trip to the Pacific Science Center today with the kiddos and Grandma Meow. We had so much fun exploring and we didn't even make it through the entire place!
Wonder if Eric will climb up there the next time we go?
