Bowling in South Bend

On a recent trip (ok so it's been like a month ago but anyway) I had a bowling outing with some of my co-workers from my division. Mark and Zoie came with me to South Bend and were able to join in the bowling fun. Zoie did very good, was held by lots of people, and was a hit as usual. Here are some pictures.

I didn't bowl very well but I didn't completely embarrass myself either. We had a nice time and my co-workers got to know my family a bit better.

What does Zoie do all day?

As I'm currently working from home, the common question is what does Zoie do all day. I thought I'd give you a few pictures to illustrate.


Yes she does take naps in her bed, this just sometimes happens when she gets really tired. She is actually a very good napper, which is when it is the easiest to work. She usually takes 2 2-4 hour naps everyday.

She is ok with the jumperoo. She is a bigger fan of the swing...I just couldn't find a good picture of that right now.
She plays a lot on her activity mat. She really likes the toys.


This is her moving away from the play mat. For a child who doensn't officially "crawl" yet, she gets around.



She also likes to sit on our futon to play. She is looking at books here. She probably tries to "eat" the books versus "read" them.

Before and After

A few weeks ago Mark and his brother Ben put a new roof on our house. Since we changed the shingle color, we changed the shutters as well. Here are the before and after pictures.

First Foods

At Zoie's 4 month doctor appointment (which yes was well over a month ago), he suggested we start her on some solid foods. Thus far I've only ventured into rice cereal. She was not initially impressed. Here are some pictures














Daddy thought it might be funny a few days before to give her an apple. Don't worry, all she could do was gum it.










By the second feeding, she was all about her rice cereal. If you are too slow, she lets you know it. We are hoping to start vegetables soon.
