Officially Daddy and more...

It has been a busy last few months for the family.  On June 6, 2012, Shands "Officially" became Zaela's daddy!  Zaela couldn't have been happier as she ran down the courthouse hallway proclaiming her new last name! 

Zaela's big brother also graduated from High School and will be attending college in Boston... he is going to be missed!  
Zaela and her big sis and brother!

Miss Z also graduated from Pre-school!  It was a star-studded Hollywood Red-carpet event!!  Zaela even captured an award for "Best Costume Design!"  Super cute event and we will really miss Teacher Veronica!

We found out Zaela is quite handy with DIY remodels!  Zaela helped grammie with the horrible job of removing wallpaper and loved hammering nails with grampie!

We have also had so many wonderful playdates....and she finally LOVES running in the ocean!!!  Miss Z is growing up.  I understand why every parent says it so often, she is constantly changing and growing, I just wish I bottle her up!  She now sets the table, helps with dishes, makes her bed, and "usually" follows directions quite well!  Our favorite things to do together are work out, YES she is relentless..."Mommy, why are you stopping???"  LOL!  And of course she loves "Leggies up!"   She is also still loving her ballet/tap lessons and is doing great!
