Is September already almost over? Time seems to go by slowly each day and yet the weeks just fly by. Just thought I'd give a little update. Not much new has been going on. School has gone better than I expected this year. I started out the year with at one point 31 students. I was stressing about it, but determined to have a good year. They were good kids and we were doing well. A couple of weeks into the year we found out we had qualified for another teacher in 4th grade. So I now have a lovely class of 20 students- is that even possible in Utah? It has been so great! There will always be challenges but there are many benefits to having a small class size.
Even with school going well it is hard to leave Zac. We are so lucky to have amazing babysitters. The grandmas both take a day, and Jon is taking night classes so when Jon isn't working Zac gets to play with daddy. We also have a neghbor that watches him while Jon is at work.
Zac is getting so big and learning to do new things. He rolls like a champ, but isn't crawling (he hates being on his tummy, so I'm guessing it will still be a while with that one). He recognizes Jon and I and it is so fun to walk in after work and see him get so excited to see us. It also makes it hard because he cries a bit when we leave now. He is getting good at eating solids and shares mom's dinner all the time. His favorite is still bananas. I have been trying to be creative and puree up our baby food every once in a while and it works out pretty well. Anyone else do this? I'd love some new ideas.
Here's a few pictures that I hadn't added. These are Zac's 6 and 7 month pictures with his bear. I can't believe it's already almost time for his 8 month ones.
I love these shoes!
I don't know why, but when I use a flash, Zac's hair line looks really funny. His hair is shorter on the front, but it is there. With the flash it looks like a middle aged male pattern baldness going on. In person you can see his hair.
This is my favorite look of Zac's right now. It's good I like it because it is what he is always doing. He tips his head back and makes an "O" with his mouth and makes a cooing sound. Everyone comes up with a different thing it sounds like. His babysitter calls it his owl sound. I think it sounds like a pigeon noise. It's cute whatever it is.
What a kid!
