Happy ONE HUNDRED Week Birthday, my little princess ...

totally forgot to get a photo "just" for her weekly birthday,
so I cropped down one of our traditional Christmas 
eve "all four kiddos" pics to just show Zoey!

I've decided to end the weekly birthday posts here!
100 weeks old!

what a milestone and how far Zoey has come!
I still can't believe that my little baby is nearly two years
old ... and that she is walking!!!
it's pretty amazing, if you ask me!

she is still behind, overall, but I think that
the progress she has made and all that she does
on her own, "naturally" (just later than average) is really

my plan from here on out is to do monthly posts ... so we can still
see her grow and change, but at a more appropriate rate!
the weekly birthday thing began, just by chance, when she was
still in the NICU ... frankly, because each week was
just that much of a milestone to me!

but, now that she's older the physical change will become
less and less obvious - especially on a weekly basis - 
so I feel that monthly will be best ... and some day
she'll still have this amazing book (or volumes, lol) showing
all her progress through photos!!!

the weekly birthdays!!!

Happy Ninety-Nine Week Birthday, my little princess ...

Zoey wasn't too sure of the big guy!
I managed to get two pics of her on his lap - but she
wouldn't look at me (oh -lol- I just noticed that Santa is pointing at me)
and managed to squirm her way off his knee, so the third
was being held by sissy and I caught her mid blink/turning her head!
oh well - it's still a fun memory of our "breakfast with Santa"!

Happy Ninety-Eight Week Birthday, my little princess ...

 she's giving me a hug!

 looks pretty hilarious - but actually it's the sweetest thing!
Annicka has taught Zoey to do this little pose -
and say "aaaaawwww" at the same time!
although, usually Annicka makes the "aaawwww" sound,
for Zoey it's usually just an open mouth - lol!
still - it's one of the cutest things ever!

 she knows just what cups, sippy cups, straw cups are for ...
and if she finds one, she's all into it - but give her her
own and she'll fight you for her bottle - little stinker!

 here she's putting the cup back where she found it!
(and freaking me out - leaning over the couch like that)

 love the silly "duck" faces!!!  
the boys did this same silly face, too!

 snuggling up to sissy's rear-end ... YIKES!  (lol)

and here she was giving us a laugh, pulling sissy's
shirt up and then proceeding to smack her!!!

Happy Ninety-Seven Week Birthday, my little princess ...

threw a bunch of "new" toys into Zoey's play area the other day!
I came across them while on a mad hunt for a table cloth,
they were toys that Liam (and some even Jericho)
used to play with!  she loves the star stacking toy!!!
