Z's Golden Month

     It's that time again. The 7th! Zella is growing like a weed and getting stronger everyday. This past month she has had fun trying new foods and being more active. She loves jammin' to music and banging on toys.

The time is flying!

     Wowee! It's been a big month for Zella. We kicked it off with a visit to the ER! She ended up being very sick with a UTI, but recovered quickly with antibiotics. Whew! She also got her very first cold that she kindly shared with both Mom and Dad. The timing was terrible as we were all sick at the beginning of our Cabo vacation. So yeah, she flew internationally and got her passport stamped. Lastly, she just started eating cereal upon our return home. She likes it okay, but can't wait to try other foods. Happy 6 Months, Zella!

What a big girl!

6 Months!

She loved the water in Cabo.

Yummy cereal!

Oh yeah...

     There was that time Zella turned 5 months , but her mommy failed to writen an update. Month 4 to 5 was so fun. Zella became more mobile and even started rolling over. She is such a joy!

4 months YOUNG!!!

      We can't believe 4 months has gone by since our little girl was born. Time has really flown by, and we are enjoying every minute (as long as there are no tears ;)). She is getting more fun each week and we like seeing her discover the world. We love you Z!


     This past month has been a blast! Here are some of our favorite Z faces and moments:

She loves you...

Happy Daddy Day!

Love this smile



Getting stronger

Road trippin'

     We had so much fun in Kansas City. So many people to see and catch up with. It was Zella's first big road trip and she was a trooper! These are just of a few of the many friends Zella was able to meet.

Zella finally got to meet Greta. The girls are one day apart!

Days with Mimi were a blast.

I love Nanny!

Seeing these two was wonderful!

So good to see Aunt Lori!

My BFF, Kinleigh, is the best!

Liam and Laine were the sweetest to Miss Zella.

3 months and counting...

     Our babe is officially 3 months young! We can't believe how much she has changed in such a short amount of time. She enjoys morning giggles while being bounced, daddy work breaks, kisses from her puppy sisters, and library time with friends. We are excited to see how much she grows and learns in the coming months.
What?! Already 3 months?

What have we been up to lately?

     Well, the summer has started, which means busy weekends ahead. Lee headed to KC for a bachelor party, therefore, it was just Z and I for the weekend. We made the most of it and survived. She was on her best behavior...most of the time. This mom showered all three days, fed and took care of two dogs, didn't lock a baby in the car, and overall felt successful. We were both very happy to see Lee return though. :)
     Last week, Bob and Jill offered to watch Zella so that we could have a date day. We were stoked! At first we weren't sure how she would do, but they put her at ease and had a terrific time.

Afternoon movie with a theatre to ourselves.

Massages and dinner!
     And finally, Allison came to visit! We had a blast catching up and showing her our home for the past 4 years.
City Park was beautiful!

Zella misses Aunt Al!
