Right now...

Currently spending lots of time with: Looking forward to making: Wearing and loving: (From Victoria's Secret) Can't wait for the Season Premiere of: This is my last full week at home with Zoe. She has started laughing when we tickle her. She's just a joy to be around. I can't believe she's 3 months already. Since she is teething, we've been spending a lot of time cuddled up together, being held seems to calm her down. I'll be trying to take more picture of her smiling this week, but no promises. XOXO, Holly & Co.

Good Morning

I thought I would post a new picture of Ms. teething Z. This is her "I just woke up and want to eat" face.

This is what happens..

when your Dog runs away and you spend 20 minutes chasing it, while the neighbor watches your baby, because you were changing the laundry and the dog ran outside when you opened the door. You make cookies, you bake half and then take a spoon to the other half, all while drinking a diet coke. Lucky for me, most of my nights are not like this. In baby news: Zoe is teething. Yes, it's hard to believe she's only 3 months, but there are definitely toothies coming in.

When you least expect it...

As I was making pasta salad yesterday, I noticed something about the pepper I was cutting. It made me stop and smile. Hope you are all having a good week. XOXO, Holly & Co.

Zoe's blessing

We blessed Zoe this weekend in Provo, UT. I just wanted to thank all those who traveled to come see and support her. It was a long 12 hour drive there and an even longer 12 hour drive home, but it was worth it to be surrounded by family and friends for this special day. (I will post pictures as soon as I get them, we didn't use my camera.) We also got to meet cousin Noah. He's so small. It's hard to believe Zoe was smaller than him when she was born. Compared to Noah, Z is a monster. Lately, I've been working on Zoe's scrapbook. I have my large (12x12) scrapbook for me, and then I bought a small one for her (8x8) so that she will have her own scrapbooks to take with her when she moves out. I've also been working on my scrapbook. Before Zoe was born, I hadn't even gotten to our wedding photos. I've been working hard to keep up. I've been using a lot of the stash I have built up over the years, so much so, that I think I am going to need to go shopping again soon :) Last week, we dug out the webcam and hooked it up so that Nona & Papa (my parents) could see Zoe in action. We're hoping they will get one soon so we can see them too! Well, baby Z needs to wake up to eat so I better go. I'll post blessing pictures as soon as Dad sends them! XOXO, Holly & Co.

All Smiles

I am continuing to try and catch Zoe's smiles in action. Today I caught one, but it's without the flash, because the flash made her loose the smile.

2 Month Check up

Well Baby Z went to the Dr. today her here are her stats: Weight: 10 lbs. 10.5 oz (3 pound gain) Height: 22.5 inches (2 inch gain) She's in the 50th percentile for both so she is growing right on track. She had to get 3 shots and an oral vaccine, so she is a little fussy today. Zoe also likes Monsters, INC. I didn't know if she would get scared watching it, but she actually enjoys it and sometimes talks back to the movie. Her new trick is blowing bubbles. I'm trying to get a picture of this, but as most of her tricks, they come and go very quickly. XOXO, Holly & Co.

Caught on Tape: The Smile

So I have been trying to get Zoe to smile for the camera for a week now, and I finally caught one! During this photoshoot, she also found her hand and enjoyed it immensely. I added the rest of the attempts to get the smile so you could see her with her hand. Zoe has to go to the Dr. next week for 2 month shots. That I'm guessing is going to be a long day. I have been slowly crafting again, so I'll try to put up some picture of my creations. XOXO, Holly & Co.
