Zoe's new tricks

Zoe can now hold small toys. She even managed to get a small stuffed animal to her mouth and was chewing on it yesterday. She has been sucking her fists for about a week. She still hasn’t managed to get her thumb out so she just sucks her fist. Her hands are often covered in drool. Her sleeping at night is getting better she sleeps for 5 or 6 hours more frequently. If her arms get loose from her blanket she wakes up because she hits herself or scratches herself.

She had her first babysitters on Sunday. Her Grandma and Grandpa Macbeth watched her for about an hour while Mommy and Daddy went out for dinner. Just as they finished dinner they got a call that she was crying and they should come home. When they arrived home she had fallen asleep. Grandma and Grandpa decided she needs to be a bit older before they are ready to babysit again.

Look for new pictures to be posted sometime this weekend. She is changing everyday and we have lots of new pictures.

Multi-page photo gallery

There seems to be some confusion about using the photo gallery. If there are more pictures in a gallery than fit on one page, there is page-based navigation buttons on the top right hand corner of the thumbnail view.

If you click the “next page” link you will go to the next page of images.

Well Zoe is now just over 6 weeks old. She sleeps well when we let her sleep with us. We usally let her a couple nights a week just so I can get some rest. She likes to watch her Winne the Pooh mobile in her crib. She smiles a lot and I am going to get Steve to post a couple pictures of her. Her favourite toy right now is a little frog that Kim got her. You can see it in the pictures of her smiling. She is getting bigger and heavier every day. Soon I won’t be able to pick her up and carry her in her car seat. We try to take her out so she can see new things and on nice days we go for a walk around the neighbourhood. We have met a couple more of our neighbours. Spaz seems to like her and sniffs her head. He even licked her head one day. We stopped him but Zoe didn’t seem to mind she seems to like the kitty.

New pics posted today

Well Steve posted the new pictures today. The sweater and hat Zoe is wearing while laying on her quilt is the same ones her Mommy wore home from the hospital after she was born. She had her first trip to Ikea today. She did not sleep well last night in her room. We are hoping for better tonight. We were quite excited with the two nights in a row of 5 hours of sleep. No such luck last night it was about 1 hour or 1 & 1/2 hours between waking. We think it is because she gets gassy and gets fussy trying to get it out then wakes and wants to eat. Mommy is hoping she will take to the bottle soon then her Daddy can feed her at night once in awhile. Right now Zoe and Daddy are playing together and she is smiling up a storm at him.

Hello Everyone

Well it has been awhile since my last post. Zoe is now just over a month old. She has been sleeping for 5 hours in a row for the last couple nights which is great for me. Although she has been in bed with us so tonight when we put her in her own bed we will see how it goes. We got her a new night stand and it made her room smell like paint so we have been airing it out. She is getting bigger and heavier. This is really noticeable when she falls asleep on top of you. We try to go for a walk around the neighbour hood every day so she gets some fresh air. The lady who lives next to us had a baby girl this week so maybe her and Zoe can meet and become friends. We have more pictures and Steve has promised to put them up on the site tomorow. Although he said that yesterday too. Steve is still being an amazing help doing the laundry and cleaning up, as well as cooking and helping with Zoe. Zoe now smiles and is awake for much longer periods in the day sometimes up to 2 or 3 hours. She likes watching Seasame Street especially when Elmo is on and watching her Baby Einstein videos. She will watch the whole video now. Before she would lose intrest after about 5 or 10 minutes. She is still a very good baby and we are enjoying her.

Well it is 1 am and I should got to bed and get my sleep while I can. Check back to see if Steve put the new pics up.
