Speech Therapy

Zoe had her first session of speech therapy this morning and went extremely well.  We really, really like the therapist and she is full of energy and passion to teach Zoe how to talk.  She strongly suggests we work on baby sign language to help Zoe not get as frustrated, and be more “talkative” around […]

Popcorn Night

A while back, Zak and I found out that my parents have popcorn night each Thursday and we thought that sounded great, so we started the weekly treat.  It’s a great way to begin the end of the week and even more perfect considering we have to eat dinner at 4:45 to get Zoe to […]

A Parenting Milestone

We had a beautiful piece of salmon and a roasted broccoli for dinner.  Not the most exciting, but good nonetheless.  At least Zak and I thought so.  Zoe did not.  She ate a few bites of the salmon and then started a crazy combination of sobbing and screaming.  All she wanted was the fruit that […]

Halloween Costumes

This evening I was telling Zak about the countless people that have come up to Zoe and me in the last two weeks and said that she should be a pumpkin for Halloween, because of her hair.  We agreed that the people only meant well, but it was still kind of rude.  He said that […]
