Zoe LOVES Henry

I just wanted to share the joy that I feel when Zoe smiles at Henry. They have such a connection and Zoe is only 5 months old. Everytime Henry talks or sings to Zoe she lights up. Her eyes sparkle and she has the biggest smile on her face. I don't even have that affect on her and I'm her Mama! I hope that they are always close and always good friends. Henry loves to tell Zoe things, "did you see the dog Zoe?" "look at the cow Zoe! It says Mooo" I can't wait til she can actually talk back to him and have a conversation.

Noodle Necklace!

Henry and I did our latest arts and crafts activity this weekend. For this project yopu need:

Rigatoni or Ziti noodles
Acrylic paint
craft paint brushes
paper plate (to put the paint on)
old clothes (in case you ou your child gets pint on them)
cup of water ( to wash brushes)

I set up newspaper on the table and taped it over the edge to prevent sliding. I let Henry paint his noodles lots of different colors. I showed him that if you mix certain colors together it makes new colors (red and white make pink, blue and red make purple etc.) After we painted We set the noodles aside to dry. We finally got a chance last night to make his necklace. I tied one noodle to the end of the yarn, threaded the noodles on and tied a noodle to the other end with a little bit of space to put the noodle on the other end through for the "clasp". He was so proud of his necklace when I put it on him last night. Here are some pictures and videos (click the links) of him:
