Spring Break/Easter Weekend

For Spring Break we visited Grandma Goose. Zoe became good friends with Grandma real quick.



Zoe feel asleep with Grandma's stocking in one hand and her spool of thread in the other.


We got to meet our new nephew and Zoe's newest cousin, Lex.




Zoe loves him so much.



We met up with Jordan at the Olive Garden in Logan so Zoe could meet her oldest cousin.

Zoe loves Olive Garden.

Apparently Zoe likes the eggs better than the money.

Zoe's Doll Buggy

I bought this doll buggy in Preston, Idaho for $5 over a year ago. Before we even new about Zoe. I have always wanted to clean it up and paint it. Well...


...I finally got around to it.


I painted it pink, made a new cover and made a baby doll quilt.


Next, I made a pad so the babies could be comfortable when being pushed around by Zoe.

Don't you think Zoe will look stylish pushing this around. She even has a matching dress, necklace, bracelet and purse to wear  with it.


I think I am getting addicted to before and after projects.

Zoe's Cooking

Levi said I could not BUY Zoe a kitchen, but he did not say I couldn't MAKE her one.

Old night stand and $2 shelve from DI.

Take apart drawer to turn into oven and prime.

Cut a hole for the sink, make a back splash and add some color.

Add hooks for towels and hot pads.

Add sink, faucet and burners.

Reassemble and add accessories.

A side view.

 As soon as the paint dries we will take it in the house.

 Zoe loves it. She likes to play with all the knobs on the stove and pull stuff out of the oven and drawer.
I think it turned out pretty cute. I still want to add a chalkboard to the other side and other accessories.

What do you think?

1 Year Stats

My cute babe had her 1 year checkup on April 4th. Here are her stats:
Weight: 20lbs. 9oz. 40%
Height: 30 in. 78%


How ticked would any adult be if every time they went to the doctor their parents blogged their height and weight? Just a thought.

What is Zoe doing now?
She is a crawling machine.
She is starting to get confident to walk while holding only one hand.
She loves to explore everything.
She understands and follows Spanish commands. Sometimes better than English.
She likes to eat everything (including toilet paper and lotion),
She loves to laugh.
She has an amazing sense of humor.
She loves to play chase. I chase her and she will chase me.
She loves to talk. She chatters all day long.
She can say mommy, daddy, hi, yeah, hi daddy consistently.
She has repeated the words crazy, that's you, poop, and many other words.
She thinks she is hilarious.
She has a fake laugh.
She loves to hug and kiss baby dolls.
She loves wearing and chewing jewelry.
She gives the best hugs and kisses.
She has been drinking from a sippy cup since 6 months.
She sleeps 12 hours at night.
She loves to play with toys.
She is very good and sharing. If kids take toys from her she hands them more.
She has amazing fine motor control.
She loves to read books
She is very distracted by technology. Her favorite items are the ipad and cell phones.

I could go on and on. She is the most talented, smart, gorgeous baby I know. I love her so much and am enjoying watching her learn and grow.

HaPpY BiRtHdAy Zoe!

Zoe turned 1 on April 2nd. We celebrated her birthday with friends and family. The kids decorated cupcakes, we sang Happy Birthday to Zoe and open presents. Zoe is very loved and spoiled by all her family and friends.

Opening presents.



Zoe received her first present from out of the country. Jane gave Zoe a basket she brought back from Haiti. In Haiti they place little toys in the basket and cover them up with cloth and the children pull out all the cloth to find the toys. Zoe loved it.


  After Zoe's birthday party we went to Thanksgiving Point Children's Garden to celebrate Zoe's friend, Avery's Birthday.

Zoe was not a fan of posing with the bear.

We want to thank all of our family and friends for helping us make Zoe's birthday memorable. She is very loved and spoiled by many.
