I love these pictures!!! Jeremy and I took Zion for a walk at Mill Creek Park. It was early on a Monday evening and cloudy, but it looks like a bright summer day! It kind of looks like we're in a studio with a background drop of the plaza, but I promise we were there. Doesn't he look cute with the fountain shooting off the sides of his head?
Zion loooves the J.C. Nichols fountain!

This boy is sooooo cute! Even when he's sleeping!

This little nut woke up at 3 am crying; well, really, whining. So, I went in to check on him. There was just enough light from the hallway that I could tell he was lying on his stomach. His little, no, big head was bobbin' around and I could tell he was half asleep.
I said "what's wrong baby?" which apparently startled him enough that his half asleep noggin went careening into the ocean wonders musical thingy. The impact made a noise just like a cracked nut. The next noise was Zion's ear piercing scream. I picked him up and ran into the bathroom to check out the damage. The poor little guy's eye looked swollen and then I noticed a pea sized knot appear at the corner of his eye.
I ran downstairs with him to get his boo "bunny" elephant ice pack. I seriously thought he was gonna have a black eye. Surprisingly, he let me strap it to his head, swaddle him in a blanket and rock him to sleep. I kept worrying that he might have had a "fraction of a second" concussion. Thus, I put him in bed with me for the rest of the night. I was worried about him but also laughing as I grabbed the camera to record the incident! In the morning, the knot was gone and thankfully there was no black eye. Not sure how I would have explained a black eye!
Hi Grandma Connie! These pics are for you. I just wanted you to see how much I love this new game you brought me.

How can so little...
...make such a big mess? Little Z was constipated, so I tried giving him prunes. I managed to get one spoonful of prunes in his mouth. He the proceeded to stick his chubby hands in his mouth and remove the blob of pureed prunes and then violently wipe them up his nose, eyeballs, and forehead. He literally got prunes in his eye which made him furious, which led to big tears and snot (click on the picture for a nice view of the snot bubble that puts the finishing touch on this image)
I think that's a smile?

Yep, I'm still catching up on my posts!
I often forget to have someone take a picture of the 3 of us, so I feel fortunate to have this one.

Zion's first Easter basket from G-ma and G-pa Collins.
He got some colorful sponges which he happily proceeded to try and chew off a hunk of one. Don't worry Grandma Joyce, none of us had thought of him trying to do that!

We were able to distract him from eating sponges with his new singing lamb puppet. He still giggles when he hears the puppet.

Zion on the easter egg hunt with his cousins. He was pretty excited with all the noise and racing around to find loot.

It's kind of hard to hold an easter basket and crawl. Some baby pants have pockets just for these occcasions.

March 30th, Jeremy presented his latest works of art at the grand opening of th Leopold Gallery in Brookside. The piece he's photographing in this picture is my absolute favorite of everything he has done to date! By the way, you can still check out his pieces at the gallery.
Zion shares his advice on color and texture.
