Ice Cream and Fits-How Do These Go Together??

Waiting on the Ice Cream truck..we can hear him..but can't see him yet.

Let me just say..our ice cream man is tried, true, and faithful. He is driving up and down the streets of my neighborhood, twice a day. His ice cream is way overpriced but yummy! This is Zoee's first trip to the truck. I hope from now on she doesn't hear the music to every kids ears and run to the door and demand she gets an ice cream...LOL Grammy and PawPaw divulged also and bought us all one. After looking at these pics..I realized just how ghetto fabulous his truck really is..funny, huh!

Zoee's first ice cream from the ice cream man..she loved it!
And later that evening....
I think our terrible 2's have hit quite early. This is what Zoee's "fits" look like. She always throws herself on the floor for them, too!

Already a girlie-girl..carrying around Mommy's purse

She loves to put the towel on her head after she gets out of the bath..just like I do..ha ha!

Zoee can't get enough of bathtime.

Can't you tell? She loves playing in the water.

Summer is Almost Gone...

Zoee is playing with Lola.

Lil' Lola

I'd like to introduce the newest member of our family. This is Lil' Lola. She is a Chug, Chihuahua/Pug mix. We got her from a friend of Mike's and we love her so much. We recently had to get rid of Posh, our kitty, because she was just getting meaner and meaner. I think she was honestly jealous of Zoee. She didn't want to be touched anymore or petted so I found her a good home after posting her on Craigslist of all places. Lola is 6 weeks old and cute as a button. She really is a great dog so far. She's not suppose to get over 10 lbs. our vet told me and she is really healthy. She's already received her first set up shots and already had her first bath. Zoee was a little apprehensive..I think because when Posh was around, she treated Zoee like poo all the time. She didn't understand. But Zoee and Lola get along really well. I will post more pics of her and Zoee having fun together in my next post...they are funny.

This is the first night we had her. We couldn't find our dog crate so she had to sleep in a box..LOL

As you can tell, she made herself right at home.

My 31st Birthday Party

Spending my Birthday with Zoee

Today I turned 31..Happy Birthday ME! Mike had to work I spent the day with Zoee. We hung out at the house and played, laughed, and napped. It amazes me what Zoee retains and knows. She now understands and does things when I ask her. For instance, I say, "Zoee, go get your cup." And she knows exactly where she left it and goes for it. We had a great day today..she was so good and we had a lot of fun!

Zoee passed out after playing so hard..I love this picture because it depicts how tired she was..she didn't even care if her feet were under the couch..ha ha

The "Tickle Monster"

We watched our regular Mickey Mouse Clubhouse shows that I record on DVR. DVR is the best invention EVER so far!

Zoee was particularly not amused that I took her pretzels away from her.

Like Mother/Like Daughter...I am a TV-a-holic...and now I see where she gets this from! LOL

I love this face...this looks like the face I get from my Dad!! LOL

17 Months Old and Oh, SO SPOILED!

Zoee is 17 months old and is just a ball of fun! This age is so great because she can do so much now. It amazes me how much she already knows and is learning. She is really loving Mickey Mouses Playhouse and we watch one at least once a day..sometimes two or three 30 minute shows. She loves to dance around and even knows what they are going to say everytime and sings a long with them. She sings along with me to her ABC's and 123's. She says a lot of words and repeats a lot of everything we say, too! She colors us pictures at Mollie's house and at church. She's not eating much these days..but still drinks a lot of milk. She is way too active and loves to swim, play with her babies, read, get everything out, put things back where she got them, and loves to give kisses. She is very adventureous and has learned to climb up onto the couch now and likes to try and stand on her table and chairs, which is not allowed. Yesterday, while I thought she was napping, she either fell out or crawled out of her crib for the first time. Mike found her in her room playing like it was no big deal. Scared us to death because we thought she might have hurt something. So if it happens again we are moving her to a toddler bed because I do not want her to break any bones. I'm not sure if it was a fluke thing or what..but we are going to keep an eye on it.

She loves to pose for pictures, loves getting the cereal box out to get a snack. She either hands the box to me to help her or she will do it herself and open it up and grab a big handful. Mike said last night he was putting lotion on her after her bath and she was pretending to squirt some in her hands and rub it on her she is just a sponge soaking it all in. She is still really tall for her age and doesn't weigh very much but can handle her own. She likes to throw fits if she doesn't get her way, of course, like her mama..ha ha! She is so full of energy. She takes one nap a day now and goes to sleep around 9-9:30 and gets up around 8:30-9. She is doing so great at Mollie's house and lil' Ethan just follows her around everywhere cause he can walk now. She is finally getting some hair (even though it's getting's still really thin) but I can put it up in pigtaigs and cute. We are gearing up for Zoee's Halloween and Christmas this's going to be a lot of fun and we can't wait. We already know what she's going to be..but I won't spoil the surprise!

Zoee has learned that she has a "BABY" She likes to carry it around..put it in her stroller, throw it on the ground, give it kisses and hugs, feeds her with her sippie cup, and rocks her to sleep. It's the sweetest things you've ever seen!

Aren't her pigtails adorable?? I just love that I can put them up now.

Eating a snackie with PawPaw. She can say "PawPaw" now..and Dad just loves it!

Casper is coming to say hello

Hangin' with her Auntie

We got her a doll that swims and she is just excited that she can play with her in the water, too!
