What is Ms. Zoe Zoo up to?

I feel like it has been forever since I updated about our little pride and joy! So what is she up to these days?
  • Zoe is ALL OVER the place! She is walking and still crawling at times. She has just now started to stand up without using anything for help. One of her favorite things to do is push the shopping cart around the store. She will walk and walk until she literally falls to her knees because she is so tired.
  • Zoe loves to talk. She can now say Mommy, Daddy, Mama, Hi, Hey, Bye Bye, Night Night, Book, Ball, Puppy, Baby, Happy, Nose, Eyes, No No, More, All Done, Cheese (when a picture is being taken), Hop (for a bunny), Down, Hot and blows for fires and anything in a bowl or coffee cup. She points at what she wants, especially when eating. She makes noises for cows, sheep and horses. She also now points to her nose and hits her head to sing "head, shoulders, knees and toes". She loves animals and squeals "OOooo" anytime she sees one.
  • Zoe is a GREAT eater. She goes straight to her high chair when I ask if she is hungry and she goes "MMmmmMM". There is really nothing she doesn't love. Lately, she has really loved mac n' cheese, grapes, bananas, grilled cheese, pb&j. She tried lasagna, pizza...she loves Chicken Nuggets from Chick-fil-a (duh!). We are still hesitant to sweets. She was able to sneak a couple peanut m&ms from the coffee table and she made the biggest "mmMMmm" sound I have ever heard her make. It was so funny; like she really wanted me to know how much she liked them.
  • Zoe is sleeping great at night and 2 naps a day. She loves her bed! She is not very fond of sleeping in a pack n' play, which makes traveling no fun....and I can't blame her. She sleeps with a blanket, a bear, a lion and a bunny. She cuddles with them and plays with them in the morning. So cute!
  • Zoe loves her Baby Doll she got for her birthday. She carries her around (by the neck) and lays her down on her pillow pet...over and over. I have started to talk to her about being gentle with the baby and loving on the baby. She hasn't quite caught on yet...but we have time.

  • Zoe is not interested in the TV at all. I can't get her to watch anything for more than 5 seconds. If I put on Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, she just dances to the songs and goes on with her play.
  • Zoe hums and sings a ton in the car and while she is calming to sleep. It just melts my heart.
  • Zoe screams "Hi, Daddy" when she hears the door open and close in the afternoon.

  • Zoe has 5 teeth and 1 just dying to break through. No signs of molars yet.
  • Zoe is currently sick :( She started with a sinus infection that led to an ear infection....she is just pathetic and not herself. But I do love how cuddly she is. She will just lay with me all day.

I just love every stage Zoe goes through. Her personality is just beaming right now! She is no longer baby...in any way...she is my little toddler!

What a cutie she is. I have always though she looked like her Daddy but she is really looking like a combination of both of you now!
