Zane Valerian, for Ralph Lauren Polo

I like to play stylist to my boys. Like Stacey and Clinton of What Not to Wear fame, I try to go with who they really are, and just make them look their best. (which is usually pretty good, because they are some cute, cute boys.) I was surprised to find out that Zane can do preppy. He does it well. He also likes playing with balls. He might be a sporto jocko. Well, he's a Pisces, so maybe not. But anyway, here he is letting his inner preppy shine through. I REALLY don't know where he gets it. But it sure is cute.

Today, I told Zane to smile for the camera, and this is what he did! (First time.)

He's also been talking a lot more and signing, too. Basically, just being a lot of fun!

Heather and Matthew Visit!

We've had a busy and fun few days with our dear friends Heather and Matthew. I met Heather online while we were both pregnant and in an online mommies-to-be group. We have been IMing each other for well over a year now and I was so excited to finally get to meet her in person. Zane and I drove to Seatac to pick them both up. Zane decided the ride home would be a great time to be very unhappy in the car. It seems he didn't feel like sharing.

Mostly, we hung out around the house, on the porch, and I showed them Olympia (what I know, which isn't much yet!) Matthew is good at sharing and showed ZV a thing or two about that. And, even though he is about a head shorter than ZV, he also showed him how brawny and loud he can be, which freaked ZV right out. However, it was great to see them together and to expose our little man to another one his age. We haven't had the opportunity to do much of that yet.

Here are the boys being suspicious of Kevin, who is trying to make them laugh:

Apparently, sightseeing is boring for babies...

Indian food, however, not so boring:

Group shot. Kevin even got in on the late night chats in the living room. It was so great to finally meet Heather and Matthew in person! You'll have to come see us again and bring the whole family!!! (now, wouldn't that be crazy? FIVE boys!!!)
