Had a great day today. Took the kids (Sophie - 2.75 yrs old, and Zach out to dinner up at Marshall St. near the SU campus.) It was beautiful weather and Sophie did a great job eating French fries, carrot juice and milk for her dinner. I know, I know. The kid is incredibly hard to feed.
Zach is eating his fruits like a champ, and we are sneaking his veggies in between bites of his fruit. Doing the cheerios pretty well. Just gotta get him a little more dexterity so he can grab the suckers himself. Self feeding - another step towards independence.
He is sitting by himself, usually only for a minute or two and then falling over. Very cute though. Crawling - not even close. I have a sneaky suspicion the kids is going to walk before crawl. YIKES.
Steven and I ran the 'Komen Race for the Cure' 5K. Just started getting back to the running recently. I was able to squeeze in 2 5-milers this week and the 5K all on new sneakers. Not in love with them, but they aren't terrbile. That's the most I have been able to run in like 18 months. 7 more pounds to go until I am back to pre-pregnancy weight. uugghh
So I found out Thursday that I may be losing my job - how perfect since it will be my 10 year anniversary on June 9th. Never quite knew what something like this would feel like. I have been working since I was 16 years old - I don't recall ever being let go before. WHOA. 21 years of working. Maybe it is time for a break.
I am not necessarily terribly upset about getting laid off. However, I am very nervous about what my future holds. I am trying to just let the big guy in the sky guide me. I just pray that what I am supposed to do next will be clear- I mean extremely obvious because sometimes I can be clueless.

Zach is officially 7 months today.
He has yet to pop anymore teeth, but he has figured out how to chomp on Cheerios nonetheless. He is eating 3 square meals a day now and then some. He still seems awfully skinny to me - probably because big sis always seemed like a linebacker!
He is not quite sitting up totally unassisted yet - probably within the next few weeks, He rolls both ways very well. He can scoot and rotate on his tummy and roll - so he is mobile. I love setting up toys around him and watch him go for them. He sleeps on his tummy now which makes me nervous - but better than Sophie and her insistence on sleeping with the covers over her head.
He loves to stand, and does so very well with good balance and longevity. I do hope we can keep him from walking until his first birthday!
He has a great grip and very accurate reach. I am hoping we can start the self-feed finger foods soon.
He is still our happy little boy and gives lots of smiles. (Except at 3 in the morning... yeah - we will one day get sleep again.)
All in all - we are all doing well and enjoying our little family.
We look forward to the summer!
Gotta run - someone is crying....
