15-month stats

Yesterday I went to a new pediatrician, Dr. Turkish. She is Emma's doctor. She was really nice. She spent 45 minutes in the room with Mommy and I, and even gave me a cool Cookie Monster book! I got a shot - Mommy says it is the vaccine for chicken pox. I cried a little, but I'm really a "trouper," Mommy says.

So here is the scoop:

Weight: 20 lbs 9 ozs (10th percentile)
Height: 31 inches (75th percentile)
Head: 18 inches (50th percentile)

I'm doing well, and much ahead of milestones - so the Dr. was really pleased to see that. She also thought I looked a lot like Emma.

Since I got the chicken pox vaccine yesterday, I wasn't able to see my new cousin, Joshua. Mommy and Daddy got to hold him, while I played with Grandma and Grandpa Martin. I'm looking forward to the 4th of July - because we'll get to see Aunt Sarah, Uncle John, and baby Joshua! Yeah!

Joshua Thomas Lalik

I have a new cousin!

Aunt Sarah (Daddy's sister) and Uncle John had Joshua Thomas yesterday afternoon - June 26th!

He was 4 pounds, 13 ounces and 17 inches at birth - he's a little skinny guy, but healthy for being a premie! He's so cute!

15 months today!

Today I turn 15 months old! Mommy says that she can't believe I'm already 15 months! But it has been quite an adventure...

This has been a stressful week for Mommy, but we are hoping that next week will be better. Monday Mommy works; Tuesday I go see a new pediatrician: Dr. Turkish; Wednesday we are going to see a concert: Music in the Park, and possibly we'll see Miss Jessica and Miss Lily; Thursday we are going to Greenfield Village with Miss Rachel and Miss Natalie; and hopefully Friday we are going to hang with Papa Ray! Busy week...but much more enjoyable than this past one. Mommy definitely needs a break!

rainy day

Mommy and I at the Detroit Zoo - 6/13 (a Sunny day)

...Mommy doesn't really like rainy days...niether do I.

This has been a busy and stressful week for Mommy. Our refrigerator broke on us, then between Stanley Steemer and all the crazy stuff from Monday and Tuesday Mommy was really tired last night.

I was a good girl and slept through the night for Mommy - she really appreciated it! We were supposed to go to Plymouth's Music in the Park today, but the rain has prevented that from happening. So instead we are hanging out at home today. In some ways Mommy is glad...nothing to do is often a good thing!

happy father's day! is the second Father's Day I've spent with my Daddy. It's such a special day for Daddies. They get to be reminded how much we love them...and we do!

I'm looking forward to this week. We have Mommy's lessons tomorrow, lunch with Shelly on Tuesday, a concert on Wednesday, and I'm sure other adventures on Thursday and Friday. I can't wait to share my new adventures with you!

mommy gets a myspace account

...lately Mommy has been sad that some old friends from high school and college have slipped through the cracks.

It's probably because she stays at home all day and has time to remember those that were once forgotten. Anyway, Uncle Joe convinced Mommy to join MySpace because a lot of old friends had "spaces" on there. So Mommy reluctantly did. Now she's really glad that she put the effort into joining. Already she's been in contact with quite a few people, and she's especially glad that two of them are her friends, Jahna and Steve. Mommy had a list of people that she cared about from high school - I hope I have more. Anyway, one of the people is my Uncle Joe, another is my Aunt Dana. Dana is coming back to live in the States again this August. Her and her husband, Phil, are going to live in Athens, OH so he can get his PhD. Mommy says this is a VERY important degree to get. Then there is Steve. Steve and Mommy did a lot of shows together back in the day (community theater and high school theater). He was on MySpace. Then there was Jahna. Jahna and Mommy were in choir together. There is one or two others, but that's for Mommy's Blog. Anyway, if you want to view Mommy's MySpace account:

unlucky numbers

...apparently today is unlucky.

Mommy said that the numbers 666 are evil to some people. Movies, books, and popular culture have all jumped on the 06/06/06 band wagon. I guess now I have too...

I don't think today is's been pretty good for me...

happy birthday zoe's world!

...and another birthday!

This time it is one year since I started writing on Zoe's World! What an adventurous year I had!

Trips to the Zoo, Greenfield Village, other cities, and other states. Visits with friends and family, as well as meeting new friends. A whole year of firsts, and I got to share it with all of you!

Here's to another year of trips, visits, and exciting adventures!
