Look Who's Turning...

 Look who's turning...
Zoe is turning one on April 2nd.
 I know. I know. I'm obsessed with taking pictures. But how could you not be with a little one this cute. 

As you can see she is very excited to turn one.

 I thought is was necessary to take more pictures to document how much she has grown. I may have gone a little overboard. Luckily Wanda (photographer) understands me and is always willing to take amazing pictures of Zoe. Check out how cute Zoe is getting and how much she has grown. You can also see a lot of Zoe's fun personality.


I just love her so much. I could hug and kiss her all day long.

On the way home I told Zoe she was so patient and did a great job posing for the camera. I went on to tell her that I was a CRAZY mom who would take pictures for her every day. She then said, "Crazy." I said, "That's right mommy is crazy." She said, "Crazy." At least she understands. Right?

My Currant Projects

This is sort of a follow up from my New Year's Resolution post. You know the post titled "A Little Bit about Me." Anyway, here we go.
1. I have read one book so far called "The Body Finder" It was pretty good. 1 down 1 more to go.
2 .Complete 3 quilts - I have finished 1 quilt top and tied another quilt. I am only counting the following quilt for now. This is my "Duck, Duck, Goose" quilt.
On a side note, Levi said we have too many quilts. So, I have decided to make other crafts as well. Don't worry, I am still keeping the 3 quilt goal, but just adding more crafts such dresses for Zoe. Like the one below. I just finished it. I think it turned out pretty cute.

The following picture is of materials I am using to make Zoe another dress. I am almost finished with a dress for me that is made from the same fabric line. Zoe and I will have coordinating (not matching) dress. I bought the super cute lace at Aunt Elsie's Consignment store at Gardner Village. It adds the perfect touch the dress. Check out her blog

This is the fabric line "Max and Whiskers." I am using it to make my second quilt for the year. This quilt is for Jason and Molly's baby due in April. We are so excited to meet the little man.

3. Learn 50 Spanish words or phrases - not much progress. I have the rest of the year. Hahaha
4. Attend the temple - Sadly I am 0 for 2. I need to work on this one.
5. Plan meals and cook them - I have made progress. I am cooking more often at home.
6. Use coupons and sells for grocery shopping - I met with my neighbor (a couponing pro) and I have come up with a plan. Now I just need to put it in place.
7. Complete monthly paperwork - So far I have turned my paperwork in early every month. I have been extremely organized and productive with my time. Yay me.
Here is a picture of a quilt I made last year for Zoe's bed when she gets older. Zoe already loves it. I had a hard time getting her off it.

Grandma Goose's sisters hand quilted it for me. Look at their beautiful work. I just love it.

They also personalized it with a note. So perfect.

Well, that is all for now. I get to work and post more completed projects soon.

11 Months

Today I went to my favorite antic store and had Zoe's pictures taken. The pictures are taken at Aunt Elsie's Attic at Gardner Village. Wanda worked her magic skills and caught these beauties on film. She is such a talented lady. I cannot believe Zoe is 11 months old. It just seems like yesterday we got the big news and were packing to go see our little one be born.
Zoe has so much personality and spunk. She loves to pull all of her clothes out of her drawers and then put them back. She usually helps clean up her toys (we are still working on this). She is always busy learning and exploring.
Zoe is learning to make friends. Avery and Zoe are just 4 days apart (Zoe being the oldest). Last Sunday we had a glimpse of what her teenage years might be like. At one point during sacrament meeting Zoe has 3 little boys trying to get her attention and play with her. Luckily, she did not appear that interested in boys yet. Hahaha.
Zoe is so excited to turn one. We have been making plans and preparing for her birthday party. We hope all goes well. Wish me luck. This is the first birthday party I have ever planned.
I love how much my little Miss Zoe trusts me. Whenever she is crying or wants to be held she is reaching for me. I could snuggle with her all day. I love her so much. She will always be my favorite girl.

Be on the lookout for birthday pictures.
