Eww yuck

Here in Bakersfield we normally have a gate up between the family room and the kitchen to keep Zachary out of the kitchen. The gate wasn't up and Zachary made a beeline for the cat food. He decided it was tasty. He was very reluctant to give up the little crunchies in his fists. We decided it was probably time to feed him dinner.

After dinner, I had had the kitten on my lap and put him on the floor. I turned to look at Zachary as he crawled toward me when I realized that the cat had thrown up and Zachary was trying to eat it. Ewww!!!

(He didn't actually eat any, but it was all over his hands. We got him cleaned up just fine. It looked like three-bean salad, which explains why the cat's tummy was upset. The next question is, who fed three-bean salad to a cat??)

Kitty Cat

This is the stray kitten that Will and his girlfriend, Stephinie, found. I was playing with him with the cat toy. I put the cat toy down and Zachary picked it up and started playing with the cat with it! Too cute.

Swimming Bug

Zachary loves the water!!

Hands & Toes

Zachary doesn't like the prickly grass on his knees, so he has to "crawl" on hands and toes.

I guess it was sour...

Bath Time

He was so excited to get in the water! With all the traveling and the mini-baths in the sink (see older post), he hadn't been in a bathtub or swimming pool for quite a while, so he couldn't wait to get in!

More Yummy Corn

It wouldn't be Fourth of July without barbecued corn on the cob. (I forgot about the rotating problem, sorry.)

This isn't Zachary's first taste of ice cream, but it is his first taste of milk shake. Mom and I split a Susanne's Special at Dewar's. For those of you familiar with Dewar's, you know what I'm talking about. At the end of the video is a quick panorama to give you a glimpse of the changes they've made.

This is my tortoise, Vercingetorix. He lives in Bakersfield. Isn't it interesting to watch him eat?

Playing with Grandpa

Video taken 6/30/08


He likes to have music playing. Almost as soon as he saw this toy he figured out how to get it to play music, and, as you can see, when the music stops, he wastes no time in turning it on again!

Doesn't it look like he's playing with his toy to the beat of the music??

Center of Attention

Zachary loves being the center of attention - just look at the grin on his face! We were at Grandma Humphrey's new place visiting with her before Zachary and I left with Mom and Dad to go to Bakersfield.

Wine Corks

Finished with the corn cob, he's moved on to wine corks - one in each hand.

Corn Cob

Zachary's first corn cob. Also notice the remains of three-bean salad on his tray. He loved it! He picked out all the kidney beans.

Isn't he cute?

Mobile Baby

The title says it all.

Feeding the Baby

Elizabeth is feeding Zachary fruit from Jessica's graduation party. I think it was watermelon. He sure likes it!

Video taken 6/15/08


The first time he encountered stairs he knew exactly what to do to go up. He hasn't gotten to the top yet; the most I've seen is 4 before he backs down again, but it's really fun to watch.

Zachary's got it all figured out - even how to turn on the windshield wipers!

Zachary loves cantaloupe! He makes "yummy noises" as he eats too.
