Spring Break

Jason had off for spring break so we headed to Lawrenceville to see my parents then off to Virginia to see Jason's parents for the second half of the week. Jase and Zach did so good in the car. Jase never complains to get out of the seat and just sits happily watching his movies. He's really into Thomas again and all he wants to play with are his trains. Zach only complained when he wanted to nurse and Jase said "chill out Zaqui!". We busted out laughing so hard. I normally say "Chill Sanchez" (not sure where it came from) to Zach and I say "Chill Out" to Jase when he is freaking out. So now he says it when Zach complains and it makes me giggle every time. Zach had his 6 month check up before we left on our trip. He weighed 22.4 lbs (97+%) and is 27 1/4 inches long (75%). He did real good for his shots and Jase kept telling him "it's okay" and "good boy"...what a sweet big brother. While we were there we had the doctor check Jase's ears since we were about to go on a trip and he had had a low fever all week. Well, he indeed had another ear infection!!!!! So to the Ear, Nose and Throat doctor we go this week. They will assess his history and check his ears. He keeps sticking his finger in his ear so I don't think that the antibiotics got rid of this one.
My sister and I took the boys to a playground and Jase wanted to run away from us in the parking lot and ended up falling. I didn't think much of the bloody lip he had since it happens quite a bit. Later I was pushing him on the swing and he was laughing and smiling and that is when I saw the black marks on his front teeth and a chunk missing from his right front tooth!! ugh. This picture is kind of fuzzy but you may be able to tell that the left tooth is missing the corner piece.
While we were in Virginia, Jason and his brother and father took Jase to a playground that had huge fields so Jase could run to his hearts content. Funny to think he will be as big as his daddy, grandpa and uncle one day!

Grammy blowing bubbles with Jase. He enjoyed playing with Grammy.

Zach is eating so well and is really getting it down. Today he ate and barely spit any out. He gets pretty impatient and wants you to focus on him and feed him. He will kind of grunt and has his arms out to his side. He also likes to drink from a sippy cup.

I put an Easter basket together for Jase but the only thing he cared about in it was the train named Daisy from Thomas the Tank Engine. He was so excited and here he is looking at it while I try to figure out how to open it.

Here he is examining Daisy's face and if you look closely you will see a crooked smile of excitement.

Loving his new engine.

He lines them up and makes sure they go in a straight line.

Zach with his Aunt Betsy

Zach still doesn't sit solely by himself but with a little support he does pretty good. On the bed he does real good. We were trying to get a picture of Jase and Zach together but Jase wouldn't stay still long enough. Zach has his first tooth breaking through but we haven't taken a picture of it yet. Maybe the next post!!

I've seen that crooked smile, it is really curious, I wonder what he is thinking when he does it. Great photos, Carmen, makes me feel like I was there.

I'll agree with mom, those are some nice pictures of some great times and those are some big boys you have. I'm quite certain that Don and Brian had their work cut out for them chasing Jase. Everyone looks great. Glad you all could split your week with the Ames and us. See you soon. Dad...
