Sunday Fun-day

Yesterday it was beautiful outside so we wanted to do something outdoorsy. We decided to take Zoe to the park. She loved the swing and the slide!

I watched my mom throw a mean spiral ;)

Pumpkin Patch 2011

Get ready for picture overload!! Last Sunday we went to Hall's Pumpkin Farm in Grapevine and it was photo op galore! Pumpkins, corn maze, farm animals, you name it....just good ol' fashioned family fun! Zoe was so over stimulated she didn't know quite what to do with herself but it was a fun tradition to start and I think we will definitely make it a yearly occurrence.

Children of the corn.....I think this is probably Taylor's favorite picture I've ever taken ;)

peek a boo!

I have so few quality photos of the 3 of us so this picture makes me really happy!

Patio Party for my 30th

We had our first party on our new patio and it was a huge success. We had a bunch of friends over to celebrate my 30th bday and we watched football outside and enjoyed fall even though it was 85 degrees on Saturday!. There were a ton of kiddos and it was so fun to see them all playing together. I guess this was our first real party to throw since having's really kind of funny to see how different things are now that the majority of our friends have children. But I love it- I mean look at how cute all these kiddos are!

Clara and Zoe

this picture cracks me up....Zoe and Nevie were playing and then all of a sudden Zoe freaked out!

9 months

So the last few weeks have been crazy...Zoe has been learning so much. 9 months is definitely my favorite age so far. Just in the last few weeks, Zoe has taken off, full speed ahead. She is a crawling machine. It's pretty amazing how quick she is picking things up (literally...ha!). She is crawling from room to room, pulling up on all the furniture, sitting down from the standing position. She loves to follow us wherever we's pretty funny especially when we're getting for work in the morning. One minute she's in the nursery, then she's in the kitchen, then she's in the living room...there's no stopping her! Good thing we have a small house, otherwise I don't know how people keep up!

And it was even apparent during our monthly photo shoot...I could barely keep her still in the chair.

And here's her stats for record-keeping purposes:
Height: 27 3/4 inches (60th percentile)
Weight: 19 lbs, 6 oz (60th)
Head: 45 cm (80th)
