Solid Foods and Six Months Old

The Z-Bomber as I have been known to call her, actually this may be the first time calling her that (definitely have called her Z-Bomb in the past), she is six months old now. She doesn't have teeth yet, but she is loving eating solids. She continues to grow like a weed, as they say it in the old country or some place/time else. 

And trying something new, here is a video of Zoe's very first experience with solid food (or at least a mushed up Avocado. She didn't hate nor didn't love avocado. She does however now love pretty much everything else we have given her, especially pears and mangos. By the way, if you don't have sound you are not missing anything. 

And for those that enjoyed the pre-moving picture era of my blog

She has been eating solids for a minute and she is already trying to help with the spoon work, I can foresee a lot of messy meals coming my way. 

She kind of reminds me of Cosmo Kramer after the dentist, you know the one where he is wearing the jump trainer shoes.

And she is officially Six Months Old!!!

Who can say no to that face, just take my money and buy a pony or whatever it is you want! 

I know I am partial, but seriously this kid is a cutie pie, she is going to make my life hell in 17 years. 

Of course the official shot from overhead in the crib, you can go back each month and see something relatively the same. I am not a big fan of this angle and Ky seems to do it better on her iPhone, but "whatcha gonna do".

Four Months and Counting

Zoe is now Four months old, and has had her latest checkup. She measured in at 26" long and 14 lbs 1.8 oz, which puts her 96th percentile on length and 48th on weight. Can we say rowing scholarship? I hope so, cause she hasn't done a great job so far saving for College! Here are her monthly photos, in full disclosure they are a couple days late in taking

Zoe has a way of spinning in her crib as she naps

Long and Lean

Pretty cute if you ask me!

James and Christmas and More

Yes, I know, I don't post often enough. It's amazes me how many people enjoy seeing these photos of Zoe and our activities. I've said it before and I'll say it again, time flies way too fast. Zoe is just about four months old and almost double her birth weight (we are guessing). When she goes in for her four month checkup on Friday I have put my money on 14 lbs and Ky has put her money on 15 lbs. I have no idea if that is realistic or not, but I guarantee that she is in the 95th percentile (or beyond) for length. This girl is tall! Since our last blog we had a photoshoot (at home) for the Christmas Card, met my brother in Seattle (activities included Dick's Drive In, the Pike Place Market, the original Starbucks, the Experience Music Project and a nice dinner at Anthony's Bell Street Diner), Christmas, beer drinking and wine tasting! 

An outtake from the Christmas card, still a favorite.

Not really sure when I took this photo, but still love that smile.

Somebody was three months old, a month ago.

The Guitar Sculpture at EMP, yes it actually plays music with robotics. 

 The EMP had a Sci-Fi and Horror exhibit when we visited, Zoe didn't think The Alien was very friendly 

 Blue Skies breaking up the Grey of December in Seattle.

Zoe asked for a Orange Mocha Frappuccino, but lacked the funds to pay for it, so she had to watch me drink my Americano. 

Showing James all of the tourist spots of Seattle.

Back in James' hotel room after Zoe drop some heavy artilary in her diaper.

Back in Portland at the Belmont Station bottle shop and Tap room, Zoe is proving to be a skilled drinking buddy.

Zoe enjoying the sights and sounds of her swing.

Christmas morning with "Papa Lee".

She can't hardly wait to dig into her presents, by far, too much stuff was hauled home to Portland.
