Happy 1st Birthday, Zoey

I can't believe we have a one year old daughter. People kept telling me how fast time flies by when you have a baby. But, you don't really understand it until you reflect on the past year and you think back to the tiny 7 pound baby you brought home from the hospital. The most difficult thing we had to worry about was keeping her awake long enough for her to eat. Now she is one year old and waves bye-bye, eats big people food and loves to read books and play. This past year has been amazing and even with all the ups and downs it has been the best year ever.
I thought I would share a couple of pictures from Zoey's birthday party. It was a lot of fun. We started off with presents and, of course, we let her have a chunk of birthday cake to eat by herself. She messed with it and ate some of it but she did not like having her hands covered in icing. We finished off the evening with a much needed bath and a lasagna dinner. Over all it was a wonderful celebration of Miss Zoey Michele.
Thank you to Daddy, Grandpa, Papa, Grammy, Unka Rone, Aunt Rika, Uncle Eddo, Aunty Alix, Uncle Larry, Aunty Lisa, and Uncle Bob for making the party a huge success.

4 teeth in 16 days...what a trooper

Even though in this picture you can only see 4 teeth, Zoey actually has 6 teeth total. And the poor darling recently got her 4 top teeth in 16 days. The amazing thing was that she was a doll the whole time. She never acted like sharp, pointed, bone-like pieces were piercing her tender flesh. Ouch!

We are so excited about celebrating Christmas this year. Not only is Dave's dad, Don, coming down from Pittsburgh, my aunt Lisa, uncle Bob, cousins Erin and Kyle and friend Maury are coming in from Jacksonville, Florida to celebrate with all of us.

We hope you have a wonderful Christmas, too. Without Christmas there would be no "holiday" season!!!
