What a lovely, busy week!

Jonathan was out of town on a show this week, so I promised the girls that if they finished their school work for the week by Wednesday that we could go to the aquarium on Thursday.  We always enjoy a trip to the aquarium, and see something different and beautiful every time we're there.
We watched some new "rocks" being made.
I had Tatiana take a couple of pictures of me nursing Zachariah on the patio outside the Cafe Maya to remind myself that I can nurse in public without it being a big hairy deal.  I'm not sure why I suddenly have anxiety about this with my third child.  I never worried about it before.
Tatiana enjoyed wearing her brother in the ERGO for most of the day.  He even fell asleep and took a bit of a nap while she had him.
We had the place almost entirely to ourselves.  Going in the afternoon, in the middle of the week is the best, because most of the time field trip groups come in the morning, and it's not particularly crowded.  There was actually a homeschool co-op group there.  It's kind of fun to see other groups out and about during the week.  :)
Once Zachariah woke up from his nap, Celestia took over the babywearing with our Maya Wrap.  She had been itching to get her hands on her baby brother all day! You can see that he was still groggy from his nap!  hehe!
When we came home, I knocked out another diaper for Zachariah.  I'm not sure if I ever mentioned it here, but my guys at work dubbed the baby "Megatron" long before we knew that he was a boy.  My mother found this awesome Transformers fabric for me to make diapers out of!  :)
Last, but certainly not least, we bought patio furniture!!!  We've talked about buying a couple of comfy chairs and a little table for us to have coffee on our back patio forever, and just haven't ever done it.  We really got the itch to sit outside when I came home from the hospital with Zachariah, but couldn't find outdoor furniture anywhere!  Jonathan and I enjoyed playing footsie and drinking some coffee this morning.  I foresee many mornings sitting on the patio nursing Zachariah and enjoying my morning coffee!  <3

So much to post, so little time!

We've been busy folks lately, so this will be a big catch up post!
Here is my little Zachariah playing with my sweet daddy.  Love seeing these two together.  :)

Every week at Friday School a different family does a skit about that semester's theme.  This time it is about the books of the Bible.  Last week, we signed up to do the skit.  It was so much fun!!!  Our inspiration came from the creators of Veggie Tales, and really, who doesn't love Veggie Tales?  I have a video, but seem to have misplaced the cable to transfer it to my computer.  In the meantime, here are some still shots of the four of us.  The lighting in the building leaves something to be desired, so they're a little dark.
Singing about the Pentateuch

Celestia had some super silly lines!

"Moses gives a big giant speech!"

Zachariah adding his two cents
Last, but not least, how about some super cute shots of my oldest child wearing my youngest child?  The girls have been begging me to try wearing Zachariah for a while now.  I may seriously have to consider buying them their own sling.  <3

Nom Nom Nom

Teething much?

And just because this post implies something yummy...

Yes, he's still eating like a little piglet!  As if you couldn't tell by those sweet cheeks!
