Zoe's First Trip to the Zoo

Zoe went on her first trip to the Zoo on Tuesday, July 27.




We went with Zoe's Uncle Ryan, Aunt Terri, Cousins Ty and Keva


And of course, Cousin Heather.


Zoe knows how to travel in style and comfort.


I just love her cute smile.


Do you see the resemblance between the two?

Zoe was very worn out by the end of the day. We had a lot of fun. Ryan and Terri thanks again for inviting us. We had a blast.

Crafts, Crafts and More Crafts

I love to make things. Every summer I try to make a few things while I am off from work. This year has been a little more difficult to start, work on or complete projects since I have a little one to take care of. Luckily, I have an amazing niece, Heather, who comes over pretty much everyday and plays with Zoe so I can clean, organize and craft. When Heather is not here, this is how we manage.
I zip Zoe in my jacket and we get to work. Zoe loves watching me push buttons. She eventually falls asleep.




When we moved into our new house I hated our bedroom decor (or lack of decor). It has taken 3 years to get to this point, but it is definitely an improvement.



I made these cute pillow shams. I also made the throw blanket. I hope to add paint, crown modeling and curtains.


I made this cute purse. To give you an idea of how big it is a 3 month old baby can fit in it comfortably.




Of course, I had to make a dress or Zoe and I finally finished the skirt below.


I finished a queen size quilt top for Zoe's room, but forgot to take pictures before I sent it to Grandma's to get hand quilted.

My goal is to finish my dress, another dress for Zoe and maybe 2 quilts. I only have 2 weeks before I go back to work, so I better get cracking.

Summer Fun

Zoe and I have been spending a lot of time together this summer. The following are pictures of things we have done.

Attended the Primary activity since Levi and I teach the Sunbeams.



Played Barbies



Played with babies. Notice how gently Zoe holds and kisses her baby.



Spent quality time with Allie.

Hung out with Zoe's cousins Sammie and Heather.

Played and laughed with mommy.

Taken several naps. I love her cute little face.


Found a napping buddy. Every night Allie sneaks into Zoe's room and climbs in her crib. Every night I take Allie out of the crib and send her downstairs for the night. It has become a new routine for us. I think it is really cute, but it makes me too nervous to let Allie sleep with Zoe.

Look how much Zoe has grown.


3 weeks old



3 months old.


I just love her facial expression in this picture.

More About Zoe

Zoe is growing so fast and her personality is the best. She cracks me up all day long.
I love her cute smile. She is such a happy baby.


Zoe has learned to face the camera when her pictures is being taken.


Zoe is getting along very well with the cats. Allie seems to like her the most. Every night I check Zoe's crib to make sure Allie is not in it curled up next to Zoe.



I just love this cute baby. She makes life so much better.




After I take pictures of Zoe she makes the funniest face. Watch how big her eyes get.
