Miss Z has sprouted another tooth. She now has her bottom two teeth. Although I miss her toothless, gummy smile, the new little tooth smile is adorable. I've tried to get a picture, but all we get are blurred images, she won't sit still long enough for me to get a decent picture. Sorry I have been so bad at blogging. Life is busy around the Humbert Apartment. With church, school, work and baby, it leaves little time for blogging, but I do try. I did see Twilight this weekend. You can check out my review on my other blog here. This week we will be spending Thanksgiving with Ryan's family. It will be so nice to have a 4 day weekend! We are also taking family pictures and I so excited that we will finally have an updated one! I will attempt, again, to get a toothy picture but I will need Ryan's help. Hope you all have a happy thanksgiving. XOXO, Holly & Co.

Ryan called me work yesterday all excited, Zoe started crawling. Her put her on the floor and then put her bottle a few feet away, and off she went. However, She has not performed for Mommy. I'm hoping she'll perfect her crawl at Jamie's today and that she'll be all over the place tonight. We're going to have to start baby proofing the house. Also, we started her on baby food. Last night she had rice cereal and tasted sweet potatoes and pears. She likes the cereal, she wasn't so hot on the sweet potatoes and was too impatient for the pears, we will be attempting again tonight. Zoe will be 6 months in a couple of weeks. I'm just in shock at how fast the past year has gone by. I ask Ryan all the time," Are we really parents?" It's almost surreal. Thanksgiving is next week and the whole Humbert Family will be here! Yeah! and Family pictures! I have really wanted family pictures since Zoe was born, and I'm so excited to get one with each side this season. We're gonna hang them up in our apartment, it's seriously lacking wall art. If Zoe starts crawling, I'll try to get a video and post it for you all! XOXO, Holly & CO.

Zoe has recently started to notice that we eat food a lot different than hers. She grabs for our food whenever we eat while holding her. Luckily she gets to start food in a couple weeks. Today, during the Sacrament, Ryan was holding Zoe. I passed him the tray of bread and right before he took a piece, Zoe snatched a handful of bread right off of the tray. It took a lot to not burst out loud laughing, but I had to take the bread away before she shoved it in her mouth. Zoe's tooth is coming in fast and we're expecting more teeth soon. We've been busing enjoying a relaxing weekend. Lots of rolling around on the floor and movie watching. This week however is right back to busy. It seems this time of year just flies by. Have a great week. XOXO, Holly & Co.

Wow...time for an update. Last week, Ryan's grandfather, Norman, passed away. He lost his battle with cancer. Although I didn't know him well, I am glad that he was able to spend some time with Zoe. He will be missed. We attended his funeral service this weekend. My cousin Alan came to town. I hadn't seen Alan in over a year, so it was nice to have him come spend the weekend with us. We just hung around the house watching movies and eating. I made homemade donuts though, and those were a bit hit. Zoe had never seen anyone with a beard before so she got a scared by Alan's beard at first, but after a few minutes she sat and stroked his face, it was quite funny to watch. Her fascination with hair is so funny. Zoe's tooth in coming in still and is causing much distress. She is more cranky and fussy than usual. I'm hoping that the first tooth is the worst and that she will get better after this one. It's amazing how quickly time flies after Halloween. As soon as trick or treating is over, the Christmas shopping begins, it's crazy. We didn't have a Christmas tree last year, so I am really looking forward to having one this year. I already got some ornaments on sale at Crate and Barrell this summer. I'm still deciding what to do about stockings. I was thinking about making them, but then I saw some adorable ones at Target that weren't very expensive and look way better than anything I could make, so I might but those and then just embroider our names on them. I guess I have a few weeks to decide. This week is our first week in a long time that we don't have a ton of stuff planned so I am hopefully going to be able to get some deep cleaning in, along with some relaxation and maybe even crafting! Have a great week everyone. I will take some pictures of Zoe this week and put them up....I know that's why you all read this blog anyway :) XOXO, Holly & Co.

Zoe turns 5 months today. She got her first tooth last night! She can roll front to back, and back to front. She can scoot herself towards an object, usually a paci or toy. She likes to push up onto her toes while laying on the ground. She loves to bouch on my lap. She giggles when you pinch her cheeks. She thinks my hair rollers are so funny. She laughs when she spits up on me, especially if it's in my hair or down my shirt. She cuddles on my shoulder when she is tired. She falls asleep when I sing "My Heavenly Father Loves Me" or "My Favorite Things" She loves her taggie blanket. She loves to play with hair. She knows her name, and will turn her head when you call her. She holds her own bottle. She likes eskimo kisses. She looks like her daddy. We love you Z, we're so glad you are a part of our family. XOXO, Momma

You can see her here, on her Jamie's blog Or you can see her here at her at my wonderful friend Stephanie's Photography blog I'll be taking some Christmas card attempts pretty soon, I'll probably go get professional ones taken too, but when I do it, I get the outtakes, and those make some of the best pictures. Happy Monday, XOXO, Holly & Co.

So I know I'm a few days late but we've been quite busy. I wanted to share our pictures from the trunk or treat. Lately Zoe is so fascinated by the camera, she won't smile, but I think we got one or two smiles. Happy Halloween everyone! XOXO, Holly & Co
