Christmas 2012

This was Z's first Christmas and it was spent with just our little family of four.  I love being in KY with my in laws and due to the high cost of airfare it's not always possible. We woke up around 8 ( I love how my 8 month old sleeps through the night) I fed the baby,  put the roast together then we got Luke and opened our stocking, made breakfast, read the Christmas story and finally opened presents. 

8 Months

First trip to Disneyland

First Christmas

Eight months!  Time goes by so fast.  Z started to clap and kind of bop up and down to cute!  She's definitely a mama's girl, at times only wants me to hold and she sure loves hanging out with her big brother.  LJ is such a HUGE help and takes care of her without me asking him too.  We're about to have our first Christmas with lil Z and even though we're far away from family it will be special none the less. 

7 months

First Thanksgiving
First bike ride

First Halloween
Z has grown so much this month.  Saying Mama and Dada and even bye, bye.  She even started waving.  Z hasn't started to crawl yet, but has mastered siting up on her own.  She talks so much even though she seems delayed in her physical milestones.  She definitely is a people person and will smile and anyone who will look at her.  She eats so well and so much too and continues to sleep 11-12 hours a night!!!

The Boy is 11

He loves to climb.  We celebrated his 11th birthday at Rockreation with a few of closest friends.  He had such a fun time and was so appreciative.  I love his sweet and tender spirit and is such a wonderful big brother.  He did tell me that he's still waiting for a brother...HAHA! 

My Boy of Fall

LJ loves flag football and plays the position of running back and corner.

6 Months

Wow! 6 months already.  Z sleeps so well at night and I am really blessed.  She has such a sweet disposition and is really starting to take in her surroundings.  She pays attention to details and wants to crawl so badly.  Z is quite attached to me and at times doesn't want me to put her down at all, which usually isn't an issue but it is usually around the time I need to make dinner.Z is also babbling so much, adding different consonant blends to her cooing...she's a girl :)

Her first Halloween

LJ is loving playing football for the school and seems to be enjoying 5th grade. So far he's doing well in his studies and is such a HUGE help to me with the baby.

5 Months

Z is moving around so much without crawling.  She raises her upper body up all the way and has been sleeping from 7 p.m to 6 a.m for the past six weeks and takes 2 two hour naps throughout the day.

Z loves being around people and smiles at anyone who looks at her.  She laughs so much and her brother does such a great job at making Z laugh.
