Ready for my close-up, Mr. Demille!

When our beautiful baby girl was one week old we had pro pix taken. Despite our best efforts to keep Zoe sleepy and happy we had a cranky baby on our hands! She would finally settle down and then it would be time for wardrobe change again! We eventually were able to get some really nice photos of her. I cant wait to frame them and proudly hang them on our walls! Our daughter is so beautiful! Here are just a few.


We can hardly believe how fast time if flying by! Our baby is already one month old! Her one month checkup went well, she is in the 50th percentile. She is finally starting to sleep better at night! 6 hour stretches! Unfortunatly, I seem to have insomnia issues on those nights! Talk about unfair! Here are her one month pix!

This is how I stroll

It was a beautiful late afternoon so we decided to take Zoe for her first stroll around the block in her new stroller. She watched us wide eyed and curiously as we got her all strapped in and buckled. I pushed the stroller to the sidewalk and stopped for a quick picture...... only to find that the poor kid never made it past the driveway. :) We walked around the block twice anyway for the dogs. It was nice to get some fresh air. Zoe woke up as soon as we got home, of coarse, so I told her about all the things she missed while sleeping through her first walk.

I love being home with Zoe all day. I am so blessed to be a stay at home mom! It is seriously a demanding job but worth every bit! When Austin gets home from work he looks forward holding his daughter after missing her all day. Even though he has worked all day he comes home and takes over to give me a break. I am so thankful for him doing this and I know Zoe loves the time with her daddy. It is easy to see that she is absolutely a daddy's girl :)

We've survived! ...So far!

I am happy to report that this new mommy and daddy have survived the first two weeks! It has flown by fast and I can hardly believe Zoe is already two weeks old! It has been an exhausting and joyous time for all of us. Zoe is getting a little more used to her new surroundings and we are getting a little more comfortable with the ropes of parenthood.

We are so in love with our daughter. She is the most precious and beautiful thing to ever consume our hearts. She is so curious (when she is awake :) and she makes the cutest facial expressions as she takes it all in. I am going to love seeing the world for the first time again through her eyes. "On the night you were born, Every star, In every sky, Shown down in jealousy, At the twinkle in your eye"

Daddy was so excited to watch their first Michigan game together! She felt pretty confident about who would win so she decided to nap through most of it. Maybe her special onesie is a luck charm because Michigan won and daddy was very happy about that. Now if we could just find her a Detroit Lions shirt maybe they would stand a chance! :)
