SIDE WAY SWINGS!

video
So after I recorded this video I realized that my camera only takes video horizontally so whoops! O WELL, it was a cute video. Zoe loves the Swings in Central Park! She just laughs when she gets in them. We try to go to the swings as much as possible before the weather gets too cold. We have been enjoying the beautiful colors of Fall in Central Park.

So this week I taught Zoe how to say MA MA. I would just say MA MA to her right up by her face and she would study my mouth and look at me and put her lips together and the other day she just started saying it! It was so cute! I also got her to laugh historically today. And of course the only way she does it is when I make a complete fool out of my self. I got on all fours and pretended to be a barking and howling dog. She thought it was SO funny. Then I made my voice sound like cookie monster and she laughed and laughed again. I guess something about her mommy (who usually has a very high pitched voice) all of the sudden having this deep raspy voice is just hilarious to her. Sometimes I wonder if she understands more than I know because she laughs at me when I am clearly making a fool out of my self!
Another thing that happened today was when I was changing her diaper, I was holding her leg and all of the sudden she just starting giggling. I looked at her and was like "what" and I realized I was holding her thigh right above the knee where it tickles on most people. So I continued to tickle her and she just laughed and laughed! It was so cute.

Zoe is sitting up all by her self now. She is pretty good at it. She started doing it a couple of weeks ago but has progressively gotten better. Occasionally now she will fall forward on to her tummy or back but not too often anymore.
She is growing up SO FAST. I wish I could show her to my family more often who all live SO far away. I know they would just love her as I do. She is at a really fun age. We have SO much fun together. Scott wishes he could see her more, I feel sad he is unable to see her as much as he would like to. I am lucky though to be home with her and have a husband that supports us. I have come to the conclusion that being a mom is the coolest job! It definitely is work AT ALL HOURS DAY OR NIGHT, but it is so fun.

Just the Girls

I love this picture. It was taken a while a go but I forgot to post it. Zoe and I have created a really cute bond. It is amazing to think that she knows me and finds comfort in me. At night when I put her down to bed in her crib, she grabs for my hands and holds on really tight she doesn't want to let go. She gets sad when I leave the room and sometimes I just have to stand there to let her know I am there and then she will fall asleep. When I pick her up she holds my neck and face and gives me kisses (I think she just wants to suck on my face! Everything goes in her mouth now). Any way I would like to think she is giving me kisses. She is SO super sweet. I just adore her. Being a mom is a lot of work, and there really isn't much down time but those smiles and little moments like these make it all worth it.

Trick or Treat!

We were a family of Pirates for Halloween! Scott was a good sport, the costume ideas were mine, and I basically made him dress up. He was quite the celebrity on the street though, everyone was just staring at him, one guy even asked to get his picture with him! We had a fun low key Halloween. We hit our church Halloween party first which was a quick stop, after realizing that we were basically the only ones dressed up, then we rocked 69th street where we saw Luke Skywalker and Darth Vator duke it out with their light savors while repelling off the side of a large town home! Yeah, pretty amazing! For all of those who didn't know, 69th street is completely blocked off and all the town homes are decorated with AMAZING decorations. The street is filled with tons of Halloween trick-or-treators! So very crowded, but super fun and festive.
