First Haircut

Zane got his first haircut last week. He never lost all his newborn hair and it was beginning to look like a Donald Trump comb over! It looks much better now but he looks so much older - like a little boy instead of a baby! How fast it goes. I can't believe he's already 9 months. Anyway, it was another fun 'first'.

Boating baby too!

Our weekend of firsts continued with Zane's first boating trip.  My parents have a great boat (named Kelly Girl!) and it has created years of wonderful memories for me.  I'm so excited to share that fun and joy for the water and boating with Zane.  He did great - sleeping the entire trip out to our favorite spot, playing non-stop at the beach where we hung out and sleeping the entire way back...just like I did as a baby!  Above is Zane and me just hanging out - it's got to be my favorite picture of the two of us.  Below he is with my mom on the ride back - out cold!

Zane's first 4th!!

I LOVE the 4th of July.  Partly because it's summer, a lot to do with my patiotism for our wonderful country and of course I love fireworks.  A year ago we were in the Keys, our normal 4th vacation spot but this year we stayed home.  Some of that has to do with gas prices (gas for the car is one thing but gas for my dad's boat to go 20 miles offshore to go fishing is another) but also it would be hard to do a lot of our normal "Key's activities", fishing, scuba diving, skiing, with Zane at his age.  I think we'll go next year though.  But I bring it up because one year ago we were in the Keys and drove by Zane Gray Lounge at World Wide Sports, one of our favorite spots, and I said if we would have ever had a son, I really like the name Zane.  Little did we know Zane would enter our lives only 3 1/2 months later!  I still am amazed at how his adoption worked.  God works in amazing ways when it's His timing!  I hope everyone had a great 4th of July!
