Cousin AJ!

We went to New Hampshire in mid march to meet Zoe's new cousin - Alex Joseph. What a sweetie! He is the happiest baby ever! Zoe was so excited to see him and Uncle Jamie and Auntie Sue. She really took so quickly to all of them. We had a great time - I wish we all lived closer so that we could do this more often. We even got to see my grandmother, Ellie, Nana and Gramps for a bit! Here's to more family reunions:)

Missing Camera:(

So you all may have noticed that I haven't been adding more pics lately. That is not because Zoe has stopped growing or learning or doing cute things or is less than the apple of my eye! It is because I can not find my camera. I have searched everywhere! I am going to search everywhere again and hope beyond hopes that someone has not taken it. Waaaaah!

The Big Day!

Zoe started out her birthday morning with her favorite - balloons! The look on her face was priceless when she came out of her room and saw all the balloons everywhere! She was sooo excited!!!
Uncle Dave and Gramma wish the baby a Happy Birthday...

Zoe got to play with two of her favorite friends (Crosby and Tully) - at the same time ! She was so happy she didn't know what to do with herself!

We got her newborn picture scanned onto her cake - it was so cute! I still can't believe how small she used to be!

Usually, babies are really messy with their first chow down of birthday cake, but Zoe wasn't that bad. But since the plate is empty, I guess she really liked it:)!

Birthday continued...

Zoe opened her presents , but was much more interested in eating the wrapping paper....

Here is a shot of most of the guests. Zoe was not very happy about wearing her birthday hat, though...

Ian and Daddy looked at some of Zoe's new toys with her (it was Ian's Bday the other day!).....

Zoe was pooped at the end of the party and was happy to just hang out with Mom and Dad for a while.

Happy Birthday Zoe!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Today was Zoe's first birthday! Wow, what a year! We had a nice party and we are all pooped! (So I will have to save the Bday details for tomorrow's blog.) Here's to another year of love and happiness for our little girl. We love you more than anything in this world Zoe!

Park Play Date

We've been hanging out with one of Zoe's favorite friends again - Crosby! We went to the park this time and had fun. Crosby is getting used to Zoe being in his personal space and Zoe is getting used to not being allowed to pull his hair or poke his eyes out. We are all making progress! Unfortunately, we have learned that these guys are moving a few hours away, and that makes us very sad. Crosy's mom is one of the few people I can really talk to about my real feelings and experiences about being a mom and she usually feels exactly the same way I do about most things. I will miss our friendship and hope we can keep in touch!

Mornings with Zoe

I love it when we all are here in the morning and don't have to be anywhere right away! We all get in bed together and hang out. Zoe will have her morning bottle and relax with us and then we all play together a bit before the day begins. What a great way to start the day.

Eat baby, eat!

So the only way to get Zoe to eat these days is to pretend to feed the babies in her books first. We used to pretend to eat the food, making smacking noises with our lips, until she started doing the exact same thing back - pretending to eat the food, making smacking noises with her lips!
