Zoe at Five Months

Our little girl is so living up to the meaning of her names; life and joy. She is both. Just the happiest little girl. Always ready with smiles, rarely cries, is so relaxed and cruisy.

Daddy was on holidays for three weeks and I think Zoe really loved that (we all did!). Because at night time I settle Zoe and Daddy settles Hugo she hasn't had as much one on one time as Daddy would like (or as much as Hugo got. Perks of being the eldest) But three weeks of having him around all the time was so good. I think she adores him even more now.

Zoe had her first Philip Island trip and got to experience mini golf and our beach.

She has now mastered rolling from her back to her tummy (24/6). I'm starting to worry she's going to walk early and I don't think I'm ready for that! Hopefully she slows down this habit of doing big girl things so early!

We sure love this special girl!

Philip Island 2015

Our annual Philip Island long weekend, that turned into a week long trip instead, in photos. We did our usual things, mini golf, a trip to the beach, wandering the main street. This trip we experienced the coldest, windiest, wettest weather we have in a long time, so our visit to the Nobbies lasted about 20 minutes and only Hugo and daddy went on the boardwalk. This year we also squeezed in a quick visit to the penguin center on our way home. Hugo was very excited to see one little penguin hiding in his nest.

Zoe at Four Months

Gosh, our girl is just the happiest little thing ever. She is so content and happy to just play on her play mat or have tummy time in front of a mirror. She goes down easily (for the most part) for her sleeps. I can simply swaddle her, pop a dummy in, lay her in bed and walk away. She just drops off to sleep all on her own.

She's had her first sickness with a yucky cold and quite a nasty cough, but she recovered quickly and was her happy self throughout the whole illness.

Due to her cough, Zoe did the biggest projectile vomit yet one night and ended up in bed with mama and daddy as she filled her bassinet. Poor little girl, but she just was so calm through the 5am shower, getting dressed again and going back to sleep. She is super sweet.

I am loving watching the blossoming relationship between Hugo and Zoe, they both just adore each other. I think He might almost be her favourite person. He certainly gets the most laughs out of her.

Four months gone already. Time is sure speeding by second time around.

We love you beautiful girl xx

Firestation Visit with Playgroup

We got to go visit the Highton CFA station this morning with playgroup! One of the new families at playgroup this year are CFA volunteers and arranged for our group to go and have a look and the engine and learn a little about it all. Hugo got to climb up and sit in the truck, have a go of one of the flashlights and try on a coat and helmet! He was super excited to be there. Zoe slept through most of the morning!

Zoe at Three Months

Zoe does lots of rolling over now from her tummy to her back. Hugo was in hysterics one day, giggling uncontrollably when she would roll. He would then push her back on to her tummy just to watch it again! (24th/4)

Zoe had her first Easter in this last month which was also her first camping trip. She did so well. Hardly made any noise overnight when she woke up for feeds.

We also had church camp a couple of weeks after Easter in Anglesea where she did her best two nights of sleep yet. Six hours the first night and 5 1/2 the second! So proud. Aparently church camp and/or Anglesea agree with her because she has yet to repeat it!

On the 26th Zoe gave us her first real little laugh (the real, deep tummy giggle kind of laugh) while watching daddy and Hugo spinning around in the lounge room.

She has discovered that her fists can go in her mouth whenever she wants, and so she has taken advantage of that and sucks away any chance she gets.

She is such a happy little girl, well, other than during her fussy time in the evenings (at least her fussy time is between 6 and about 9, Hugo's was more like 7-11) We love her so much.

Easter Camping 2015

Easter 2015 camping at Belgrave Heights with Nana, Pa and Lari. We borrowed great nana and great grandads old 1960's caravan for the weekend. The boys slept up one end on the single beds and Zoe and mama shared the double down the other. With Easter being in early April this year we had really nice weather most days and nights that weren't too cold. Hugo and Daddy went and got chino's for breakfast a couple of mornings (at McDonalds!!) Zoe managed to not wake up the campsite when up for feeds over night, and we survived (just barely) the plague of wasps (nana did get sting by one unfortunately) that were hanging around all weekend long. Once again a great weekend!
