We’ve been busy this past week, but have been having a lot of fun. Last Friday, Zoe and I spent the day in Elgin and my mom was able to feed Zoe cereal for the first time. It was a riot, very messy. My folks didn’t have a high chair, mainly because Mike and I […]

This one is totally non-Zoe related and even goes back a week or two, but it is damn funny, so I thought I’d share. It was a sunny morning, an early morning, like 7:00 . Zak had left for work and I was barely awake listening to Zoe start to wake up over the monitor. […]
