Baby Update

Baby Zoey is doing good. She is so much fun! She is one month old today. When she was two weeks old she rolled over for the first time. We had put her on her stomach and she flipped to her back (it was because she didn't like being on her stomach so she was kicking and just happened to kick/push her arms right at the right time). But, since then she has rolled over probably four or five more times. She's pretty strong. She has also started smiling for reals. Once you catch her gaze with yours and if she's in a good mood she'll smile. It only happens occasionally but she's getting better and better at it. Man, we love her. She had her first doctors appointment two Mondays ago and unfortunately she wasn't gaining weight. She went back last Monday (one week later) for a weight check and had gained ten ounces in seven days. We were very relieved. It's stressful when such a little person isn't gaining weight. She had her first pool party yesterday and was able to sport her adorable swimsuit that she really looked too cute in. She didn't really go swimming but I sat her in the water and she actually really liked it. I thought she would hate it because the water was chilly but she just sat there and kicked her feet. She's gonna be a great swimmer. There's a picture below. She is definitely getting longer, 21 inches now. I keep telling people that I wish babies were smaller for longer. They grow/change too fast the first few months in my opinion. I wish they were itty bitty for atleast a couple months, two weeks just goes by way too fast. They have plenty of years to grow up so why can't we treasure the prescious moments longer? Seeing how much she changes makes me really want to just sit there and look at her. She's basically growing right before our eyes and I don't want to miss a thing. Babies are so special and perfect. How can anyone doubt this earth's creator after seeing such perfection in babies. Enjoy the pictures.

Just wanted to see what my sunglasses looked like on her :)

They really do make sandals that small.

Glad to hear you guys are doing well. So true on them growing up too fast... my little man turns 6 months this week and I honestly am in shock that we are that far already :)

Zoey seems to be getting more beautiful as the time passes... if that is possible, so that is the silver lining in them growing up so fast.
