Visit with Zoe’s birthmom

Yesterday Zoe’s birthmom, her birthfamily, and her birthmom’s boyfriend came to our house for a visit.  It was so nice to see them!  We hadn’t seem them since Zoe’s birthday party in September, so we were excited for them to see how much Zoe has grown.  She’s completely walking now so that’s a big change! She’s talking and babbling a lot more, too.

A few minutes before they arrived…very excited:

We talked for a while, had lunch together, and Zoe opened some gifts they brought for her.  In the 2nd picture she’s playing with the drum they brought for her and you can see the pillow pet, sock monkey, and sock bear they brought for her behind her, too.  And in the 3rd picture she’s wearing the tutu that they got her!  Too cute :)

It was really nice to see them.  Steve and I talked last night about how lucky we are that Zoe’s birthmom (and her family) want to have a relationship with us.  We know that the weeks before the holidays can be really busy, so we’re so happy that they were able to spend time with us.  We love that we’ll be able to share all of this with Zoe as she’s growing up.  She has so many people in her life that love her so very much.
