Last night before I left work there was a post on Freecycle for a Little Tykes Cozy Coupe. I called and the car was still available so I drove over on my way home and picked it up for my munchkin.
We had to take it completely apart for me to get it in my car, but I was able to put it all together (with my Zoe audience cheering me on) in about a half an hour.
It's still too big for her, she can't reach the floor to drive herself, but she loves it. I push her all around the house and she squeals and reaches through the windows to grab at things. She holds the steering wheel and honks the horn everywhere we go. The dog is afraid of it so she thinks that's pretty funny too.
Her new favorite toys are the car and my old cell phone (no worries, I took out the battery). Apparently, I have been a bad role model because she is trying to text while driving...

Thomas's shift has been moved to days for the time being so he has been able to spend some time with us in the evening before Zoe goes to bed. It is so cool to see the special relationship that the two of them have together. When he walks in the house she is all smiles and excitement and the two of them will wrestle around on the floor for about an hour while I get his dinner ready and get the dishwasher loaded. Baby and Daddy Love is so special and so important for her right now.

I know I haven't posted in a while, I guess these long days of summer have been getting to me. Zoe doesn't wear many clothes these days when we are just hanging out at the house, so I have a lot of naked baby shots now. It's just too hot and she is moving around so well that I don't want to feel like I am confining her.
It's hot, humid and rainy here (about par for the course for a Tallahassee summer). Soon, it will be cooler and the days won't seem so drearily long.
Zoe is good, she officially has the two teeth and loves to chew on cheerios, biter biscuits, dad's arm and anything else she can get in her mouth. She has added "Ga" to her vocabulary, so she now has "Da" and "Ga" in her repertoire.
We have been trying to get her to the pool as often as we can and letting her crawl on the floor as much as possible. It won't be too much longer before she is walking and then we all be in trouble.

Zoe has a new hobby ~ biting. I tell her "no" and give her my best stern face. This is the face I get in return. Needless to say that I melt and we get nothing accomplished. She has made me bleed twice, but who could resist loving on this little baby face?
I am spoiling her. I know it and I cannot stop it. It's like rolling down a hill, you know that when you stop it will be bad, but you can't stop yourself from rolling.
