Dear Grandma and Grandpa...

I sure do miss you both and can't wait to see you in December! I am doing really good and getting into everything I can! When I am not getting into things I am usually whining because I like to be held ALOT!! Here are a few recent pictures and a video of me when I went grocery shopping! XOXXO Zaela

Her first word is....

DOGGIE!!! She has been saying it for a while now and will point and say "doggie" when she sees one walk by the house. I am hoping momma isn't going to be too far down on her list of first words:-)
Here is a video of her enjoying her Baby Einstein, Neighborhood Animals DVD!

Tagged Twice

OK so I have been tagged by Malia's mom and Celeste so I guess I can't put it off anymore!

6 Random things about me:

1) I want to be an interior designer when I grow up.
2) I can't stand it when a fan or breeze is blowing on me when I am eating! Hmmm, maybe I should put a ceiling fan over my dining table so I eat less! lol
3) I still can't believe I got Zaela home and I love being her mommy!! :-)
4) I grew up in rural Wisconsin.
5) I am a bit of a neat freak.
6) I love french fries dipped in chocolate shake!

There you have it... now I get to tag 5 people and I have no idea how to link everybody so I will let you all know! Here is my list!

Christy,,,, who will hopefully be getting good news soon:-)
Miranda... cause I know she will come up with some great "random" things!

STOP the Clock!

It's hard to believe Zaela has been home for over 6 weeks already! I am just trying to take in every minute I can as I watch her grow and learn something new every day! Most days are spent pretty close to home and seem to disappear so quickly... and we haven't been anywhere but the front porch and around the block for a stroller ride! Most of our days are not very eventful, but yet each of them is priceless and so appreciated.


I did attempt to take her to the daycare at my gym twice now. She made it about 30 minutes both times before I was paged. I just think it is her way of telling me I look fabulous even with those few extra pounds :-)



So enough from me, here's what you really want,,, some pics and video!



Oh no mommy, I wasn't touching ANY buttons!



My new friend "Mikey!"


Yummy! My Permanent Resident card tastes Great!:-)
