What I am Loving!


I am LOVING that Zoe did so great at her last Kindermusik class. Her favorite part is the opening song when we say hello to everyone by either clapping, patting the floor, stomping our feet or waving. She would scream YAY when every song finished! She loves music!

Zoe did amazing during the story. I couldn't believe it! She sat still and as the big kids reacted to the story, she would stare right at them and try to figure out what was going on.

She loved waving the scarves all over the place and seeing herself in the mirror!
At the end of class, Zoe helped "meam up" all of the mats! She is getting so big!

~Pay Day~

I am LOVING that in the month of July, we get 3 paychecks (I get 5) and make an extra House payment...that goes straight to principle!

~BuyBuy Baby~

I am LOVING that a BuyBuy Baby opened in Snellville by my paretns house! Even though I will not need much for Baby #3, I still LOVE looking! There was an adorable onsie that said "If you think I'm sute, you should see my Daddy!" I wish they had it in a t-shirt because I would have totally gotten it! This store is great and so well organized. I LOVE all the fun, creative things people have come up with to make life with a baby easier...half of it is totally not necessary...but it would make somethings easier for sure. The main thing I need to get for this go around is a new breast pump. BuyBuy Baby had the Medela for $279...Has anyone found a better price for this?

~Weight Gain~

I am LOVING that I gained 3 lbs! NEVER did I think I would EVER say this...but I am happy and hopefully the baby grew, too! 6 1/2 weeks left!

Miscellany Monday

~ Ultrasound~

We had our ultrasound this morning....8:10 to be exact....which was HORRIBLE planning on my part. I worked until 2:00a this morning....Atlanta morning traffic...Zoe sleeps in past 8a on a normal day...but it all went perfectly! Praise God! I made muffins for breakfast, got us both dressed and out the door by to 85 S....saw there was RIDICULOUS glad I know ways around this and we still got to the appointment right on time!

It is so amazing seeing your Baby! At this point, the baby is SO big on the screen. We got to see a perfect profile....beautiful thin lips, full cheeks, its little hands right by its face! The baby is in fetal position with its knees under my belly button and, like always, moving like crazy! The technician pointed out its full bladder, which means the kidneys are working well. And one of the most beautiful things for a Mother to see...a beating heart! The heart rate was 147, perfect! After all the measurements were taken, we discussed goods and bads. The baby's head measured big...34/35 weeks...and its arms and legs measured short...31 weeks. She said we would probably have a short baby...Have y'all seen surprise! She added that the measurements can be off by up to 2 weeks. So, I think everything went okay. From here, the measurements from today will be compared to the measurements at our 20 week scan and I will know more at my 34 week appointment next week.

My mom and my sister were able to go with me since Zach couldn't. I think they really enjoyed getting to see the baby since this was either their first ultrasound or first is a long time! I greatly appreciated their support...because nerves can creep in easily! All in all, I think it went well...we will see at my appointment.


I had a great, relaxing Birthday. My girlfriend, Danielle, hosted a Tupperware party on Sunday. So on my birthday, I got to spend time with many of my great friends! Then my other friend, Katie, treated me to a wonderful pedicure! So relaxing! I got to have dinner (totally rushed) with my family before heading to work for the night. Luckily, we are really celebrating my Birthday today! My mom has a wonderful dinner planned that is going to be AWESOME! Steak, mashed potatoes, roasted veggies, artisan bread and oils, wine (only one glass...its my birthday!) and apple crisp with vanilla ice cream for dessert! YES PLEASE! Why do I love food soooo much!!?!?


We are almost to July, the last full month before Baby #3 will make its debut! Hallelujah! I am hoping it goes quickly and I will have the energy to keep us going like we did in June. I have a feeling we will be slowing down though. I am very much looking forward to my nesting weekend! My list is growing and growing, but I know I will be able to quickly check things off with an empty house. We also get to celebrate my nephew, Carson's, 2nd birthday at the end of the month! I can't believe time flies the way it does!

~Zoe Zoo~

With every new day, there is something added to my Zoe's vocabulary or something new that she does that just makes us all laugh hysterically. Zoe loves to say "No Way!" no longer is just "no". Zoe says "please" and "thank you" so well and we are always getting compliments about how polite she is. She can really communicate to us what she wants better now and she gets frustrated very little...we still have the occasional tantrum, but it lasts 2.5 seconds and usually means she is ready to take a nap.

I do believe Zoe is almost grown out of two naps. I can still work it in, but she is okay with only one. If we have a 1 nap day, she goes down about 11:30-12 and sleeps for almost 3 hours. Zoe is doing amazing in her new room and big girl bed. The transition was effortless and I really hope this is an indication that other milestones could be just as potty training! Zoe still loves her Minnie in the morning and is obsessed with saying Elmo (a million times) if she sees him anywhere. She still has never seen an episode of Sesame Street which I think is so funny. I can only imagine her reaction when she finally does!

Zoe runs everywhere and LOVES to be outside. her favorite thing is to push her stroller up and down the driveway and draw with chalk all over everything; the cement, the cars, the chairs, the house...everything! Zoe has such a fun, little giggle that I love! She is quite the little toddler...I just love her so much!

Sunday, June 26, 2011


Today is my Golden Birthday!!! I am 26 on June 26th! My Grandma promised me and my sisters that on our Golden birthday she would send a golden locket for us because it is such a special day. Well....its official! My locket arrived! My sister's golden years were at 13 and 15 so my 26th has been a long time coming!

I can't help but be so grateful today...I love birthdays! And I will definitely be carrying on this Family Tradition with my babies. Not sure how I will be making their special golden day "Golden" yet...but I do have at least 13 more years (since Baby #3 will be born around the 14th too)!

I love birthdays because for me now...they are a constant reminder that God has blessed me with one more year full of many, many gifts! He is the gift that keeps giving...even if we are unworthy. And I must say...birthdays keep getting better and better, the older I get. Even though they are much simpler...they are that much more special to me!

It made me laugh too this morning, how much time has changed that is....I had many texts waiting from my friends this morning....all before 8:30a. You know you are getting older then!

Thank you everyone who has wished me well this year! I know it is going to be a great one! Happy Golden Year to me!

33 Weeks!

How Far Along: 33 Weeks!

Size of Baby: This week Baby #3 is supposed to weigh a little over 4 pounds (heft a pineapple) and should have passed the 17-inch mark...but as of last Thursday at my appointment, I still measured 30 weeks...meaning there has been no growth in the last 2 1/2 weeks. Due to this, the Midwife insisted we have an ultrasound done to measure the baby and check everything out. Monday morning we will be going in and seeing our little bundle of joy...even though the reasons aren't all that positive...I am so excited to see the baby AGAIN!

Weight Gain: weight gain, which makes sense since there has been no growth with the Baby.

Maternity Clothes: Same old, same old. I wore the dress I got to the wedding and baptism this weekend...I felt HUGE! I bought a large and definitely should have gotten a just didn't fit right. Oh Well.

Gender: All these ultrasounds really make it hard to keep this little one's gender a secret....but I just remember the moment when my husband told me who are little one was and we held each other and cried staring at our beautiful daughter....and it makes it a little bit easier. So worth the wait!

Movement: Movement has slowed down, but they are strong! Baby #3's back is going up my right side and it is hard as a rock. You see my whole right side go up and down...I love it! Lots of movement low! I have never felt movement like that before...I mean the movements are REALLY low!

Symptoms: Not many this week...YAY! Lots of bathroom runs...many more compared to last week. I had a leg cramp almost every morning...but I think these help learn to breathe through pain and relax...good for labor. My hubby made his first preggo craving run! And he got me these...YUM!
This run was made after I ate a huge plate of food at a Baptism reception and a big plate at a Wedding (extra meat) and two servings of CAKE! Maybe this means the baby is growing! I can't get full!

Best Moment of the Week: We had a great time getting our maternity pictures done and I can't wait to see how they turned out...No they aren't posted yet :( Robyn went out of town this weekend and she said she was going to try and get a sneak peek up before she left. I guess she ran out of time. So hopefully early this week we will get to see!

I just love pictures so much and I really wanted to document me pregnant! Yes, there are times when I feel like a whale and wonder when my face got so round and catch myself eating a whole bag of chips and cringe...but I also feel at times like I glow and I look at my growing tummy and could cry because I am so overwhelmed with happiness and I feel a kick and I stop whatever I am doing and talk to my little one. The joys of pregnancy far outweigh the less attractive details for me....and I want this documented. Being pregnant these last 3 years, minus about 6 months, have been some of the most wonderful months of my life, even though some were harder than others. I want to always remember this time of my life!

What I am Loving!

~Maternity Shoot~

I LOVE pictures! Today, we had our maternity shoot and I think it went really well. I wanted them to be very classic and I really think we achieved it! We had our pictures done with Robyn Guy Photography. She is on Facebook under...obviously...Robyn Guy Photography...and once our pictures are posted...if you 10 of you like her page and leave a comment on our album...we get $25 towards our picture purchase! Good deal...Yes, Please! So show some facebook love (sneak peak should be posted tomorrow).

~Summer Storms~

No...I do not love storms...especially when they knock our power out! What is a pregnant woman to do without air conditioning!?! I do LOVE that my parents live close and we were able to move in for the night! We have also had really bad luck this week with is so bittersweet. An inverter in our 1 1/2 year old TV blew out...YAY...and the next day or so, the power cord for my computer broke...DOUBLE YAY! Let's just say...a morning without Mickey Mouse made for a very rough morning!

~Fun Filled Weekend~

I am so excited for our weekend. I LOVE when Zach has off! Zach's parents are coming in for the weekend for a visit to help us with Zoe, which we so greatly appreciate! We are going to dinner with friends on Friday Night...Date Night....LOVE! We have little Gianna's Baptism on Saturday morning and a family friend's wedding Saturday afternoon which should be a really fun night! I made it to Motherhood and did not find my pretty blue dress :( But, I did get this will get the job done!
Sunday, I am Tupperware Partying at Danielle's with our lovely host Lauren! A fun filled weekend it will be for sure!

~The new Do!~

I said so long to "Laura Ingles" and have been welcomed back to 2011! I LOVE my haircut! I feel like I lost 10 pounds cutting my hair off....if only that really could be true! You can see how it looks when you click over to see our sneak peek (and leave a comment ;) )


Have I told y'all......only 7 1/2 weeks left....I LOVE THIS!

Could this be a Sign?

Zach found this little charm in his toolbox yesterday

....random and weird....

but maybe it is a sign?

On the bottom it said this....

We will see :)

32 Weeks!

How Far Along: 32 Weeks...I love even I am loving all my even weeks....8 weeks to go!

Size of Baby: Baby #3 weighs 3.75 pounds (pick up a large jicama) and is about 16.7 inches long, taking up a lot of space in your uterus. You're gaining about a pound a week and roughly half of that goes right to your baby. She now has toenails, fingernails, and real hair (or at least respectable peach fuzz). Her skin is becoming soft and smooth as she plumps up in preparation for birth.

Total Weight Gain: gain this past week. I know people are being nice and I do appreciate the compliments..."You are already 32 are so small." So sweet. But boy can I tell you every place these 26 lbs are going. It is so weird but I gain weight in my back....sounds so gross....and in my hips. I feel like my stomach is small....but I do feel wider. At least your back doesn't get stretch marks!

Maternity Clothes: I am on the hunt for a nice dress to wear for a wedding and baptism....I really like the one I posted about a couple weeks if I can just get to Motherhood Maternity to try it on....we would be in business!

Gender: I go back and forth most days....dreaming one day it is a girl and dreaming another its a boy. I am still feeling like it is a boy though.

Movement: Baby #3's feet, legs and knees are on the top of my tummy, very close to my belly button. You can actually feel feet at times and others just really hard, small surfaces (I think the knees). Head is definitely still down (lots of pressure) and he/she likes to moves its head back and times I can feel this movement. Very cool! Most movement is on my right side, but I have had a couple little, faint jabs on my left. I still love feeling the Baby move...but I really love watching my stomach completely change form in a second and then slowly go back to "normal".

Sleep: Sleep was MUCH better this week, even though my work is taking a harder toll on me, especially when I work 3 nights in a row. If I work t/w/th....Friday is ROUGH! It is really hard to even function really early when Zoe wakes up. Lucky for me...Zoe is a piece of cake in the morning and I can usually rest while she watches Minnie and she always takes a good morning naps between I of course can sleep again then too if I want. I feel like the heat has been less of an issue at night this past week which has helped a lot to sleep better. Only one bathroom break a night!

Symptoms: I steered clear of my problem foods and had a very good week. I had no reflux, heartburn or trips to the bathroom from being sick. All positives! I still go numb in my left leg at work or when I am walking for a long time...totally manageable. Not really swelling...but I can't get my rings off without a fight....I guess I say no swelling because I don't see it in my feet.

Huge craving for Orange Juice!!! I seriously drank a half gallon by myself in one sitting. I could not get enough and it was SO good! My craving came at we had breakfast for dinner...the thought of eating chicken or a hamburger with Orange Juice did not sound good! Still loving all things sour! Working at a grocery store does not help these not so positive cravings.

Being pregnant has also helped with the growth of my hair and the point that they are just TOO long. Luckily, nails I can so much. I am feeling very "Little House on the Prarie" lately and it is time to get a good cut...nothing drastic...just get back with the times! One thing that has slowed down is the hair growth on my legs...YAY! Less having to shave them...and cut myself ten times like I am 1o again because I can't get a good angle with a belly the size of a basketball in the way!

Best Moment of the Week: Nesting has begun! I love this God given urge that is so necessary!!!! I am really trying to finish our bedroom in time for Baby because I love Newborn shots in the parent's room...LOVE! So I am working hard and having fun decorating....we finished the bed last week and this week I found nightstands, lamps, and some sheers for the windows. We have to paint the nightstands because the only two matching ones I found were black and and red are not my favorite colors (especially when used together) and they do not match our decor. So another project is under way and when I get done, I will post.

I also bought a two drawer filing cabinet and reorganized all of our bills, important documents, keepsakes and it has made such a difference. Totally cleaned out one closet, too...very successful week!

Another great thing this week was our TV broke. Good and Bad. Yes, we will be getting it fixed...but it has been so nice to relax with Zach without it on...we play Words with Friends in bed and talk and enjoy each others company. Even if this only lasts a week...I am loving it.

We have a doctor's appointment tomorrow and maternity pictures on wednesday....wish us luck!!!

Reality Check!

Reality is really setting in on a couple of issues in life right now....

We only have 8 more weeks until Baby #3 arrives...and I have so much to do! We have a cute, little home...and in order to make our home not feel any smaller, I need to take full advantage of what storage space we have and really get organized! We are not using our space wisely right now. Come August, I need everything to have its own place...I need bills to be to be out of our living room....clothes to be off the floor....I NEED organization!

And so I have started to make my "to-do" list....and I can't wait to check things off. Top on my list is finding a great storage unit for Zoe's room so we can organize her clothes and toys. I cannot have her toys in the living room anymore...playtime will be in her room! I have also bought a new filing cabinet. When Zach and I first got married and joined our accounts, I was able to fit all of our bills in a file box. Well...not anymore! I feel like bills sit on top of the box now becuase it is too small to hold more. I am the one who does our finances and it is really important for me to have everything in its place so if there is ever an issue, I can find things fast! Answer to issue was a filing cabinet! Another place for organizing is our closets...ALL OF THEM! Our spare room closet will now be used for Baby #3 so all that is in there needs to be moved out....and I need to figure out where it is going to go! Hall closets are cluttered and need to be orgnaized and things need to be thrown away. It is amazing how things can just get thrown into places and how much "stuff" we hold onto for no reason. It is going to feel so good to clean all this up! I am hoping to have a Nesting...Clean House...weekend when Zach and Zoe go to his parents house in is a MUST!

Like I said before...I am going to be delivering a baby in 8 weeks (maybe sooner...maybe later). First go around, there is a lot of " don't know what to expect...I have no idea what this is going to be like." Well this time around....I DO know what it is going to be like!!!! As much as I look forward to it, it is also something that makes me cringe. Oh the pain! forget the intensity and how much it ACTUALLY forget very quickly because you have this absolutely gorgeous, gift from God in your arms! And you don't dwell on the pain...but it is not far from the front of my mind these days knowing that it is all going to happen again!

One thing I am very happy about is...I feel like I now know ways to help move labor along. I labored with Zoe for a little over 20 hours....12 hours were intense, real pain! YIKES! I am hoping to at least cut this time in half...but I will be happy to even labor 1 hour less! I want to keep moving...stay with the contractions! I have been talking to my midwife, emphasizing to her that I will need her help...that I want her present when she can be! With Zoe...I really don't remember a nurse "helping us" and definitely didn't see my doctor's face until it was time to push. Luckily, I have the most wonderful husband...who literally goes through labor WITH me. He is vital for my success and I couldn't dream of doing the whole labor and delivery thing without him.

Once we get past the whole delivery thing...and welcome our Baby #3 into the world....I want to RUN! I may not at first...of course...but come 6 weeks post delivery...I am hitting the pavement. I know it will start with walking and progress but I am excited....and nervous! Zach and I have signed up for the Rock n' Roll Savannah Half Marathon in November. The race is about 12 weeks after due date. I am obviously not going to be sitting on my bottom for the whole 6 week recovery...I will have a soon-to-be 2 year old...lets be real! I am hoping to be able to RUN with 6 weeks left to the race. And I do believe 6 weeks will be plenty of time.

My nerves are not about the race...finishing the race...running the whole My nerves are about my milk supply and running! With Zoe, I started running about 6 weeks after birth. Zoe was born in March, we were running 10 miles and by April, I ran a half marathon....and said goodbye to my milk about 1 month later!

Now, from everything I am reading....running and breastfeeding are fine...just make sure to feed before a run, stay well hydrated, eat well and wear a great, supportive bra. But, everything from my past says...Hold Up! At Zoe's 6 month check-up, the doctor informed us that my milk was supplying Zoe with no nutrients...she was in the 3% for weight...and my heart broke! I completely blamed myself for her state and figured the loss of nutrients was due to my running. Well, come to find out a little bit later....I was pregnant and this was probably why the calories were gone and my milk was drying up. One thing I do think the exercise brought on was my ability to ovulate causing me to get pregnant and then getting pregnant caused my milk to dry up....this is just what I think.

So...lessons to take from the past....if I am going to exercise the way I hope to....I need to really watch the signs my body gives me to let me know it is fertile! As much as I LOVE my babies...I need a BREAK! And if I can breastfeed Baby #3 until at least 6 months...I will be one happy Mama.....longer would make me one REALLY happy Mama!

What I am Loving

Yes, I am a day behind...what a jam packed day we had yesterday! But I am still LOVING so much!

~Whishy Washy~

Zoe and I headed to Kindermusik class on Tuesday and she LOVED it this week! She did so much better...she definitely recognized the music from us listening this past week! Grammy was able to come with us and it was such a help! As much as I don't mind Zoe running around during the class...I still have to run after her, so it was nice having an extra pair of legs! But she didn't run as much this week! Yay! Zoe's favorite part of the class are the songs that include "Whishy, Washy...WEEEE! She loves to scream Weee! and raise her hands! I am LOVING doing all these fun activities with Zoe. She is so fun to watch as she interacts with other kids and gets so excited over the smallest things.


Mom and I headed up to Covecrest to visit Kaitlin for lunch yesterday. I LOVE Covecrest! Covecrest is always full of calm and peace and lots of hugs....everyone hugs and I LOVE it! It is so inviting and such a place full of LOVE! We went to lunch at Grapes & adorable cafe in Downtown Clayton. Zoe had so much fun (minus the car rides...horrible!) and LOVED seeing her Taty Taty....we call Kaitlin KK, but she says it this way.

~Sleep Tight~

We finished our bed and it is all in place. And I LOVE how it turned out! We ended up doing the paint color a little bit whiter than an antique white, but I like how it contrasts with the wall color and now I can do some great white accents to really tie the room together.

I LOVE our bedding too! It is calm and neutral...something that Zach doesn't hate and that is a plus. I can't wait to get accessories and organize! I finally feel grown up!


I am LOVING that I have less than 60 days left until Baby #3 arrives! And I am LOVING that our time is going to fly with all the fun things we have planned for the rest of the summer. We have a wedding, 2 Baptisms, 2 Birthday Celebrations, a trip for Zach and Zoe to Grandma's, a weekend of Nesting for me, Kindermusik classes, Toddler Times, doctor visits....and whatever else we can fill our time with!

Miscellany Monday

~Maternity Photos~

We have our Maternity Photo Session scheduled for next week! We decided to go with a woman who specializes in Maternity and Newborn Photography this go around. This will probably be our only Maternity Session, no matter how many more babies we I want them to be very classy! I am loving photos in silhouette! I am hoping we can get some great ones like these....

~Home Decor~

Today was a very successful shopping day for our house! I got comforters for Zoe's duvets and pillows for our list is still very long....but it is getting checked off...each check. I do believe our bed will be done this week. We had to delay painting because of the I have been spraying here and there when I can. They are almost done and I can't wait to get our bed all together! It is going to make a big difference! Cory also brought over a saw this weekend, so Zach can now finish the baseboards in the bathroom...and then I just have to get some towels and a mirror and it is ALL DONE! I feel like we have a million little projects that just need to get done already! I am opening nesting with open arms...


I swear this morning the baby was laying sideways, head to my left hip and butt to my right. However the Baby was positioned was the most uncomfortable I have ever felt pregnant. It literally hurt to anything but stand. I eventually was able to push the baby a little bit to move and find a comfortable position on my left side (this never happens)...and all was better in the world again. To say that this pregnancy is different is quite an is like night and day!

~Guess Who~

Don't forget to make your guesses on Baby #3's pool!

Family Fun!

Saturday, Cory, Kimberly and Carson came over! The Boys were supposed to go play golf but due to the weather, they weren't able to get in for a tee time. Luckily for me and Kimberly, they met us at Monkey Joe's!!! The kids had an absolute blast with their Daddies...much better time than with just their preggo Mommies.

It didn't take long for the kids...and by kids I mean little and make their way to the BIG SLIDES!

And then they tried every thing else out!

And finally...Carson and Zoe sliding down the Big themselves!

They loved it!

We headed home to cookout....and eat outside...mosquito free! It was the perfect night and we had such a great time! Can't wait to do it again...especially when our two newest additions make their arrivals!

31 Weeks

26 Weeks v. 31 Weeks

How Far Along: 31 Weeks...9 weeks to go!

Size of Baby: Baby #3 is over 16 inches long and weighs about 3.3 pounds. He/she can turn his head from side to side, and his arms, legs, and body are beginning to plump out as needed fat accumulates underneath his skin.

Total Weight Gain: So much for gaining a pound a week...+26! From week 26 to now, I have gained 14 pounds....I can totally tell from the two pictures that my face is much bigger and it looks like my tummy has gotten a little bigger but is sitting lower.

Maternity Clothes: No change here.

Gender: Still feeling boy :)

Movement: The Baby is head down and I believe its back is going up my tummy, under my belly button, with its butt right about to my bb to the right. I feel less jabs and more of a big hard surface pushing out...which is the fits perfectly in my hand...a tiny cute little butt! The Baby also has been moving its head...because one minute I am content and literally within a second I have to go to the bathroom like I have been holding it for an hour. But Baby being head down is worth bathroom runs every 15 minutes!

Sleep: Sleep is getting harder and harder....and I need it more and more! The nights I don't work, I get up to use the bathroom once...and I usually can get comfortable really quick and fall right back asleep. I always lay on my right side with a pillow between my tummy rests perfectly on the bed now and doesn't need a pillow anymore. Sleep is harder now because I am SO HOT!!!! I lower the temp in the house and have the fan on high...and I am still HOT!

Symptoms: My list of foods that I have to say goodbye to keeps growing and growing. Bye bye to Salsa...this should be pretty obvious since tomatoes are probably the worst food for a pregnant woman, but I still ate my salsa. BIG REGRET! Woke up, sick as a dog, Friday early morning. So...I am saying goodbye to all tomato sauce, no spaghetti, no pizza...not worth it. My huge craving these last couple weeks has been Caesar Wrap with Caesar dressing from Chick-fil-a....well anything with Caesar dressing really. I am sure this has aided in my weight gain...Caesar dressing isn't exactly diet friendly! Swelling was worse this week :(

My nesting instincts are starting to kick in. I am really hoping to use these next couple weeks to reorganize our house and take full advantage of what storage space we have. Our storage closet will now be Baby #3's so we have to redistribute and get rid of the unnecessary...luckily a lot of what is in the closet are baby items (swing, tub, bouncy seat). All these items will be making their way into our living areas so that helps with the organization.

Best Moment of the Week: I can't think of one moment that sticks out this week. It was a great week, full of fun events with my Zoe. My doctor's appointment went great and our weekend was relaxing and refreshing. So, all in all, the week was good!

Imagine It!

I love a great deal! Imagine It had half price admissions after 2pm this past month, so of course, I took advantage! And Zoe had a great time...and I loved watching her play in the air conditioning! Cannot get cooled off these days.

I am so happy The Fisher's were able to come too! Seeing our little girls together just makes me so happy!
This was Zoe's favorite part. This was a magnet board that you place the gears on and watch them spin...she loved taking them off and putting them back on...over and over.
Zoe is getting so big and independent. She just goes where she pleases and doesn't need much help getting to where she wants to go.
Time to go grocery shopping!
For some reason, I thought my camera would make it with only one bar...well it lasted about 30 mintues :( So I didn't get to capture all the fun things the museum had to offer. There also was a water area with fish and fishing poles and the cutest little water jackets for the kids to wear. Zoe and Ella really loved the Paint Wall! So much that paint was everywhere...faces, clothes, all over their hands...and a little bit of paint made it to the wall. We had some tired girls on the way home...a peaceful car ride was great!

Last night, Zach had his mind set that Zoe would be sleeping in her new bed. And she did! I checked on her when I got home from work and she was all snuggled up, sound asleep. She looks so small in her big girl bed....but she did great! We laid down pillows and had a laundry basket for her to climb up and down on....she didn't need them! Best Part: I got to sleep until 9:30 this morning...she just loved being in her new bed she played this morning and didn't make a peep.
Zoe had to make sure all her friends were in her new bed with her and in the perfect places!
Kisses night, night!

(And you get a little sneak peak into her new bedroom color! Still collecting accessories and figuring out storage...I hope this room is done very soon!)

Hope everyone has a great weekend! Zach is off and I am so happy!
