So, without further ado, a picture montage (drink a lot, smoke a little, squint, and just pretend the pictures are moving to music) of Zoey's Firsts.
Getting ready to go home in our very first outfit. It says, "Just Made."
As you can see, she was beyond thrilled.
Zoey's first cold. And unfortunately it happened only a few days after she was born. Daddy developed a cold while I was in the hospital, which I eventually caught, and then so did Zoey. Jacob said to me one day, "I wish she would just have a giant sneeze one day to get it all out." About 20 later, she did!
Her first Louis-kiss. In her short life, she has received many - 100% of which Jacob and I were too slow to stop.
Jacob started working 8am-4pm about a month into my maternity leave, which was a Godsend! But before that happened, he was working 1pm-9pm. I liked to bring him dinner, especially if we didn't have a lot that he could take for lunch. So this is one of the first times Zoey and I brought Daddy lunch/dinner at work.
For some reason, one day I decided to put her in her crib for a nap for the first time. All bundled in the afghan from her Great Aunt Karen, she slept relatively sound. At 3 weeks old, I moved her out of our bedroom and into her own; we all started sleeping much better. We've since removed all of the toys because now its her bed instead of a fancy storage container.
Zoey's first time voting. We stood in line for over an hour, and although she was probably in need of several things, she was an absolute peach. She must have understood that we weren't leaving until we voted and voted Democrat.
Just after one of the first times she rolled over.
Her first bath without the newborn safety hammock thing. It was also her first bath with the rubber duckies she was gifted by a friend of mine at work. Now she can't take a bath without Mommy and baby ducky, even clinging to the mom with her feet as I lift her out of the tub.
And while I'm sad that her baby days are rapidly moving behind her, I'm excited for all of the new things yet to come (well, most new things)!
