This hungry girl can now say “UP!”   : )


365 days around the sun

28 Jul

Every time I write a post about Zoey getting older I can’t help myself by being cliché and saying that I can’t believe how fast the time is flying by!  Her 1 year doctor’s visit was this afternoon – she’s still in the 95th percentile for height and 50th for weight.  Her thumb was pricked and it seriously broke my heart having to hold her while she screamed, tears pouring down her cheeks  and not being able to help! Then she had three shots in her little thighs.. these kind of doctor visits are the worst!  Although it did make me happy to hear that she’s still a super healthy little girl : )

She still gives big (open-mouthed) kisses and hugs – but these days they’re especially to her friend Brayden, little boy cousins Ian & James and of course her Daddy.   Lately she’s been getting upset when Paul leaves in the mornings for work – and when he gets home she gives him kiss after kiss after kiss.  It’s seriously the sweetest thing.   We paint and color almost every morning with Olivia and Luc – and when she’s not trying to eat the crayons she does her best to copy her older cousins. It’s pretty cute to watch..


Her vocabulary includes- Mama, Daddy (pronounced Da-Deee) Eye, Hi-eee, and my favorite.. Uh-oh!  She points to Tanner and says Daaa for Dog and says Ba for Ball – but she hasn’t gotten the consonants down just yet.  She says Ah-Ah-Ah for a monkey and says Raaa when she’s mimicking a Lion or a Car.  : )

Her favorite food is still pasta with meat sauce – but due to this super hot summer a new favorite of hers are popsicles!  


She screams at us when we try to take her out of the bathtub and has repeatedly tried to walk straight into the lake and off the pool ledge without us – she loves being in the water!  She’s dunked herself in purposely and when I frantically pick her up she’ll laugh – it’s a little scary how fearless she is..


She also loves being naked (doesn’t every baby?!) and proceeds to climb on everything – like chairs which explains these pictures..

She really is the sweetest little girl.  She likes to share whatever is in her hand at that moment – whether it’s her slobbery food or something she’s found exploring outside.  She also has six teeth right now and thinks that the reaction when she bites me is hilarious.. 


Lately when she’s super sleepy and wants to be cuddled she clings and pinches my skin – or if she wakes up really early and gets in bed with us – she falls back asleep gently pinching and if I try to move away she cries!  In a weird way I think it’s comforting to her.  You are one loved little girl Zoey Lynn!

Three Things

23 Jul

1.  The new trampoline by the lake is like a baby play area heaven!  Zo absolutely loves it.  We climb in, zip up the net and she jumps around (or trips, falls & rolls) forever!

2.  The red wagon has become another new obsession.  She climbs in whenever she gets the chance and stays in there as long as anyone will pull her in it.  Give her a popsicle even and she’s set for a while!

 3.  I’ve come to realise Zo’s picked up a bad habit.. eating the rocks on the beach!  She’ll lick one until the dirt is pretty much off, then drop it and pick up another – pretty gross! I’ve been trying to replace the rocks with food when I can.. but she’ll figure out they don’t taste good eventually. (Right?!)

11 months!

29 May

I can’t believe that in a month Zoey will be one year old!  She has grown up so much – especially within the last few weeks.  She can shake her head “No” when she doesn’t want something.  She knows how to give kisses and hugs now.  She can wave “Hiii” and “Buh bye”.  She loves to flip the pages in the books we read and will carry one over and sit right in our laps waiting.  She has two teeth now and loves loves loves pasta with red sauce.  She’ll hold our cellphones and move her shoulders back and forth to whatever ringtone is playing.  She all of a sudden loves to climb on everything – and uses her Bumbo seat as a stepping stool. She’s always been such a happy baby and she’s turning into an even happier toddler. She’s so much fun and I can’t wait til next month so we can celebrate her first year!

Zo trying to get the bow out of her hair.  If I even brush my fingers through her hair now she thinks I’m putting a bow in it and does this..

Look what Zo can do!

9 months!

7 Apr

Zo had her 9 month doctor’s appointment this week.. and for the first time in a while she didn’t need any shots so it was a good visit! She weighs almost 18 pounds and is 29 inches long!  She’s still in the 90th percentile for height but is in the 25th for weight.  The doctor was like, ” No offense – but I think she’s going to take after her Dad..”  Tall and skinny!  In just this past week she has progressed from being able to stand up on her own.. to taking three steps!  I’ve been trying to get it on video but it’s hard because it happens so randomly!  Hopefully I can catch her in the act soon.. I’m so proud of her.

 My healthy happy girl..

Getting bigger

7 Mar

At the end of February Zo turned 8 months!

Crazy hair..

  A week beforehand she got a stuffed animal from Nona for Valentine’s Day!

She’s getting too big for her robe so I had to snap a few pictures!

Our happy girl
