We got home from Zoe’s four-month appointment a couple of hours ago. Zoe was great, laughing for the doctor and playing with his tie. The doctor, whom we like a lot, talked to us about starting Zoe on real food and answered our questions. Thankfully, Zoe is in great health and we don’t have to […]

If you look at the pictures of Zoe on a regular basis, you’ll be able to tell she has some pretty cute clothes. We are very grateful to our friends and family, because many were gifts. However, many were also given to Zoe as “hand-me-downs” from a delightful family I used to baby-sit for.** One […]

Your baby book asked that Dad and I both write you a letter. I assume they thought it would be a good idea to write it prior to your birth, but I’m fairly certain we hadn’t taken it out of the wrapper yet. I could have written it right after you were born, but life […]

We had yet another delightful weekend. Friday was obviously St. Patrick’s Day and Zoe doesn’t have any green at all, so she wore purple. She was still cute, of course. We went to Elgin and visited my mom and my grandma and grandpa. It was an easy-going, laid-back sort of day. Very relaxing. Although, my […]

Two darling things Zoe has recently done: 1. A couple of days ago Zoe was hungry and starting to cry about it, but I wanted to change her diaper first. I put her pacifier in to relax her so I could get her into a new diaper. She took the pacifier out of her mouth […]

One thing I have learned about babies is how often they learn something new; Zoe is constantly picking up new habits and trying new things. The first time I see her do something new, I usually don’t believe it. I think that it was a fluke and if I tell anyone they certainly won’t believe […]

Background information: When Zoe is hungry she says, “Neee.” She pretty much has since birth and she’ll only say it when she’s hungry. It is currently 5:14 in the morning and Zoe has had a remarkable night. She went down fairly easily and woke once at 11:30ish for her pacifier. She slept right through the […]

We have had the most delightful weekend so far! Yesterday my mom came out and we started the day by playing dress-up. It was actually more of what Easter dress fits better, the 3-6 month or 6-9 month one. We tried the larger one on first and it was clearly too big, so Zoe promptly […]

Hi everyone! It’s been a while since I’ve written, so I suppose I should explain. Things have just been busy for me lately I guess. This whole baby thing certainly has put a crimper on my free time. I wake up each morning to go to work about 6, get home around 3:30, play with […]

I’ve been part of a book club since October and really enjoy it a lot. It is a fun mix of girls who all live in the city (including two of my ex-co-workers.) We’ve read a wide variety of books and always chit-chat about the latest Hollywood gossip and reality TV shows. Zak had class […]
