Curious George has nothing on Zoe

Oh boy does this kid have places to be!
This video was taken about two weeks ago:

Once she learned how wonderful crawling can be, there was no stopping her. Though she does still trip over her hands once in awhile, but it doesn't really slow her down.
She's been pulling up onto things for about a month now, and she never really had the problem where she would get stuck. If she can't find a way to sit down gracefully she is totally okay with just letting go.
This video was taken just yesterday (ignore the tv, but friends is always on here):

And a couple days ago she stood by herself for a full 5 seconds. I'm sure I'm just going to turn around one day and she'll be walking. And she's not even ten months yet.

Other than chasing Zoe not a lot going on around here. Doing a little bit of coaching but nothing more than once or twice a week.
Still waiting to get our fence put up. Any day now they will be showing up and putting it together and I will be so excited when it's done. It will even have a real gate that Jackman can't chew through.

Zoe has a bit of a runny nose right now, but it hasn't affected her spirit yet.
Proof of the picture below.
Hope everyone is doing well and that you are enjoying summer.

Busy little bee named Zoe

Zoe crawls! She tried walking first, but once she figured out she couldn't do that on her own she gave in and started crawling.
For someone who didn't want to crawl it's amazing how fast she can move now.
She also enjoys pulling herself to standing on anything she can reach. She does try to stand on her own still. She'll get on hands and feet with butt in the air, but she really doesn't have the balance and ends up toppling sideways. Has yet to deter her from trying though. If you hold out your fingers she will gladly grab on and walk around the room with you.







We took Zoe to the zoo the other week. She's still a little young for it, but enjoyed the bears when they got moving about and playing, same with the gorillas. Her favourite by far, was the meerkats. They're such busy little creatures and Zoe just wanted to reach out and grab one.

She is 9 month's old now. And this upcoming weekend, I will be away and it will just be Zoe and Jason spending time together. I wish him luck.

In other news I am still not safe to be in the kitchen. It's not that I can't cook, just that I shouldn't. I managed to splash boiling water onto my shirt while stirring veggies.
Don't worry, Zoe is not in the kitchen while I cook.
My burn isn't too terrible. Hurt a lot at first, but my first aid skills came in handy, and with any luck it shouldn't scar.

And that's all the excitement in this house for now!

Peace&Love
