Busy past couple of days!

It’s been a very busy week and weekend so far.  We are in the beginning stages of potty training.  This is actually our 3rd time trying, and it is going really well.  It seems like everything is starting to click for her and she has been trying really hard - we are very proud of Zoe.  We have tried to take advantage of the nice weather and get outside as much as possible.  We even had a couple of days where it sort of looked like we were going to get rain, so we would hurry up, go for a walk, and then come home to snuggle in front of a movie.  Zoe had her first popsicle this past week.  She picked out the orange one in her hand.

She is posing like me with my camera turned sideways as I try to take her picture.  Hmm…guess I take a lot of pictures and she’s caught onto me!  I love how she has her backpack on…she takes it everywhere now.  We were on our way to Grandma and Grandpa’s house for an overnight stay.


She loves playing in their backyard and helping my dad water their new tree from Aunt Tracy.



I know it’s not technically Father’s Day yet, but it will be in a few short minutes.  I just wanted to say that I hope tomorrow is a good day for everyone – whether you have a child or whether you are waiting, whether you are a birthparent, or whether you are a father-figure of some type to someone.  I know that I’ll be thinking of friends who are waiting to adopt, and I’ll be thinking about Zoe’s birthfather, too, and hoping he has a good day. 

I will be spending the day with my dad and Steve (along with my mom, Zoe, and my cousins.)  I hope they both have a great Father’s Day.  I know that I am very proud of the wonderful father that Steve is…he protects Zoe, he makes her laugh, he spends time with her, and he loves her with such a huge heart.  I love watching him with her.

Happy Father's Day Steve! You are such a fantastic dad. I can see how much you love in the pictures.

You know, we tried and tried to potty train Logan and then when HE was ready it was a breeze. I should have listened to all those people who told me to wait....

Good luck with the training -- it's SO nice when you are DONE with diapers :)

I don't think I've seen any "baby Zoe" pics. How cute!!!
Happy Father's Day, Steve!
