In case you didn’t know, Annie has a blog at mamarage.tumblr.com where she posts photos of Zoe from her cameraphone.
Annie: Okay, I’m going to count to five, and then we’re going to be all done with this. Zoe: Mommy, stop talking! I’m going to count to six. Annie: And then we’ll be done? Zoe: No, I’m just counting to … Keep reading
Zoe was a little young for the beach last year, but we’ve managed to take her a few times this year, and she’s always very excited. She loves playing in the sand and even (with a bit of coaxing) splashing … Keep reading
Don’t worry about the fact that you can’t see anything in the video – it was taken in Zoe’s room with the lights out, while Annie tried to put Zoe to bed one night. For several nights in a row, … Keep reading
Dear Zoe, You are two years old, and it is absolutely crazy how much you have changed and grown lately. You’ve recently started going to Co-Op daycare, started jumping and doing somersaults, become fascinated with reading and writing, and singing … Keep reading
Annie: “Ooh, a Sassy Single Moms Group! We should send Sean!” Sean: “I get enough sass from you.”
Dear Zoe, You are 21 months old, and it’s been awhile since I wrote one of these. It’s getting more difficult, because you have changed so much, and at the same time, you’re the same little girl you’ve always been. … Keep reading
While digging through some old papers, Annie found this set of pages she colored when she was in second grade in 1986. I love the inclusion of the “stand” as part of the computer. It holds the monitor!
I just realized I haven’t been posting about Zoe much lately. I’ll try to make up for that with a few photo posts, but let me kick-start the process by sharing a few things:
On Saturday, Zoe had a busy day. It was my dad’s birthday, and there was a family get-together planned at a park in Corvallis. She spent the morning with me while Annie ran errands. Then her cousin Leilani came by … Keep reading
The other day, Annie and I noticed that Zoe has just enough hair to put it into little tiny pigtails. As you can see, I was greatly amused by the results.
We’d been trying to get her to walk for a couple of minutes, and this is how she let us know she was done. I posted a whole slew of videos and photos on flickr. I’ll be highlighting a few … Keep reading
Birth: I was called home from work because your mom went into suprise labor 3 weeks early. After just a couple hours of pushing, you were born in the bathroom at 3:30 in the afternoon. You weighed 5 pounds, 5 … Keep reading
Dear Zoe, You’re one year old! Your mom and I just finished giving you a bath, and now she’s nursing you to sleep while I write this. It’s hard to wrap my head around how much you’ve changed since the … Keep reading
Sometimes Zoe wakes up at 4 or 5am, and Annie is nice enough to take her downstairs so she doesn’t wake me up. Usually when my alarm goes off, I will find them both asleep on the couch. This morning, … Keep reading
Zoe is one year old today! It’s hard to believe, I know. Here’s a photo I took this morning of her waving at me, and you can see all four of her teeth. And in case you feel like revisiting … Keep reading
The decrease in activity at work, which I had hoped would correspond with an increase of activity here on my blog, instead corresponded with a dramatic rise in germs. Last week there was a minor pink eye outbreak in the … Keep reading
Hey Zoe, So much happened this month that it really feels like you’re trying to make up for lost time after being sick all through December. This month you’ve started playing several new games, you’re working towards talking and cruising, … Keep reading
Dear Zoe, Between getting sick and everything that happened around Christmas, this was one of your busiest months ever. So much so, that I’m only just now getting around to writing your December newsletter, even though it’s nearly time to … Keep reading
Dear Zoe, Well, let’s see. This month you had your first Thanksgiving dinner at Eric and Jill’s. You caught a nasty cold and then gave it to your Mom and me. You developed a bit of separation anxiety. And it … Keep reading
Annie: “I just wanted to let you know that I was right, she was pooping.” Scott: “This is the weirdest phone call I’ve ever received.” – Annie called me about ten minutes after I left the house to tell me … Keep reading
Dear Zoe, Writing these newsletters each month is daunting. I always feel like I’m struggling to find enough to write about, but by the time I’m done, I’ve managed to find plenty to talk about. This month, for example, you … Keep reading
Dear Zoe, You had a busy month! You got your first vaccination, you ate your first solid food and you started sitting up – No wonder you’re tired! Right now you’re up North visiting Grandma Amy with your mom, while … Keep reading
Dear Zoe, We just got back a couple of weeks ago from our fourth yearly anniversary trip with Dave & Rose and Urn & Kat. We went to the Running Y Ranch in Klamath Falls, and you had a lot … Keep reading
