This picture was taken on the last day of school...both of the girls have grown up so much!
Zoe's 12 month picture with her lamb--I gave up on trying to keep her still on the floor. Probably should have used the couch all along! She has definitely come a long way in her first year of life, and we just love her to pieces!
Vince and I tag-teamed on Zoe's lady-bug cake. I haven't done a cake like this since Ziva turned one, and I forgot it's actually not as hard as it might look. The blue eyes to match Zoe's were Vince's idea...I'm not quite that creative! :)
We fully expected Zoe to dive right into her cake, considering how much she likes to eat. But she wasn't too sure about it! She played around with the icing a lot, and it wasn't until I gave her a bite myself that she realized, "Hey, this is cake!" and dug right in.
This one doesn't show the full extent of her messiness, but you can see how she always plays with her ear and the hair right above, and that was where most of the icing got smeared. We had to abandon the party for a few minutes for a quick bath!
And the presents!! We couldn't believe how many gifts Zoe received, and she had a lot of fun (plus had a lot of little helpers) opening them all. She's a blessed little tyke, and now it's time to clean out the old toys to make room for the new!
At Zoe's 12 month checkup, the doctor said she's doing great. Her height is 29.5 inches (64th %), weight is 21 lb 2 oz (52nd %), and her head circumference is 17.5 inches (32nd %). She's starting to lengthen out some, especially in her torso like Daddy and Ziva, and is already wearing 18 month onesies! Every day she gets steadier on her feet and is even starting to run. She and Ziva play great together (hoping that lasts a good long time!), and one of her favorite things to do is climb onton the couch and walk back and forth on it. She does know how to get off the right way, but every once in a while she takes a spill. And she's starting to appreciate books, which I am so very thrilled about :) Zoe is full of life and loves to laugh, and she is a blessing to all of us!
