Little Little Zachary

I took Zachary to his 6 month check up with the pediatrician the day before Thanksgiving. He had grown an inch, his head grew a little, but he only gained 4 ounces. That was probably not even accurate because he hadn't pooped for over a week. (It ALL came out on Thanksgiving day! Wow) So, Zach is 12 pounds at 6 months. I have been ordered to supplement with formula and up the table feedings and I have to bring him back in a month for a weight check. So far i have fed him food 2 to 3 times a day on top of nursing every 3 hours and an extra bottle at some point in the day. All this food and Zachary still doesn't sleep thru the night! What he does do is poop, a lot. I love my little baby- but, grow baby grow.

SB Gymnastics Club

Today I took William to the Santa Barbara Gymnastics Club to check it out. You can come and try out a class for free... so we met up with Gina Hodson and her almost two year old and did just that. William had a blast! He REALLY enjoyed jumping, rolling, swinging, running and climbing all over the equipment and pads they had there. He followed directions really well and kept right up with the other kids that come on a regular basis. I think we might need to enroll him in a few classes for the new year :) Wish i was allowed to take picture in there. Maybe I will sneak in a few next time.

This past weekend I took a trip to Arizona with my Dad. We both wanted to visit Grandma and Grandpa and the Hixon family. It was a short but wonderful trip. We had a day visiting Grandma, going to lunch and visiting Grandpa. I got lots of time to hang out with my sister and Dan. William had the time of his life playing with Asher! Man those two were so fun to watch, they were both so happy! I got a quick trip to IKEA. A night run with Camie and Brysons birthday party. A church day without nursery! Lots of awesome pictures of my boys.... the trip was worth the drive for sure.
It was also a nice way to break up my "no Billy" time. He left on the 1st with the hot shot crew to the east coast on an assignment. He flew to Tennessee and has been working in Georgia. He should be back on the 17th. This is the longest assignment of the fire season for them. Once they get back they will throw their season end party and it will be back to a normal schedule until May! Hooray for a husband at church again.
Glad i got to go to Arizona.

Halloween 2010

This year for Halloween we decided to be a star wars family. Billy looked at Zachary several weeks ago and said he would make a good Yoda because his ears stick out a little. So, from that comment stemmed our costumes for the holiday. I went to the thrift store and found a few key items for cheap, the craft store for some material and a friend for some borrowed clothing. I sewed Zacharys yoda cap and robe (which ended up to be way to short) then i sewed Williams Ewok head peice. It was not a lot of effort which was a good thing considering we were only in the costumes for maybe 30 minutes for the tail end of trunk or treat. I guess we may recycle the costumes again in a couple years. Then my efforts wont be a total loss. Because last year our costumes were such a hit at trunk or treat... we have this reputation to live up to i guess. What are the Wrenns going to be this year?? Well, this was us- I tried.
