Yesterday was a great day, while it was a little windy, the sun was shining and I had a chance to visit with Kim and her little man Zak who is now 6 months old. He is a cutie. His little red T-shirt even proclaimed “local cutie” so appropriate. It is amazing to me how much babies change in the first year. Checking back through the blog you can see just how much he has grown.
We spent a couple of hours sitting in the grass, visiting while making funny noises all in an effort to get Zakary to look at us and smile! He was quite fasciated by the grass, less so by us! I don’t know about him, but I had so much fun I haven’t stopped smiling, and I am already looking forward to next time.
Baby Zak was over at the beginning of July for photo, and he was almost holding himself up. He has so much personality in his face, and expressions, I found myself watching, and giggling, and forgetting to take pictures!
The young children are completely mesmerized by the penguins at the zoo, so they stand quiet enough to get a great picture and include their reflection. I think the penguins love the attention, they stand on the ledges and seem to call out to the kids, make great dives into the water, and swim by close to the window where the children are standing. All this to the great delight of not only the children, but the parents and adults who are watching the delight!
