Big Girl Class

Zoe graduated to the walkers class this past week. What does that mean? Well, it means we're on one nap a day now (yikes!), no more bottles (packed them all up and we're all sippy and whole milk now), and most importantly, RECESS! Zoe gets to have playground time twice a day now which she is a big fan of (despite the fact that the only playing I've actually seen her do when I pick her up each day is eating rocks, but hey, she ensures me she's living it up.) It's been a transition for both of us....she's cried each day when I've dropped her off each morning which she's NEVER done before, but her new teachers assure me that that's normal and will pass. One downfall is that she is super cranky sleepy when she gets home and is in bed by 7 pm so our time together after work is cut short which I hate but hopefully she'll adjust soon and we can push that back a little.
my new hair do that my teachers gave me...what do you think?

What? You mean you don't go topless when you get home for the day?!?

Zoe's 1st Little Gym Experience

Clara, my friend Helen's precious little daughter, had her 2nd birthday party at Little Gym a few weeks ago. This was Zoe's 1st LG experience...evidently the Little Gym is all the rage and there are probably about a billion Little Gym parties in our near future, but since this was our 1st one where Zoe could actually partake in the activities, we thought it was pretty cool. Zoe even rocked the sweat band. ;)

Who doesn't love a good ball pit?

She was a big fan of this bouncy runway thing

Great party Clara!

So I meant to post this a month ago...this was taken about a week before her 1st birthday. These were the first official steps we caught on video. Ever since then, she has improved each week. She now is primarily walking instead of crawling...didn't take her long to figure it out!
