My little treats

Here are a few shots from our Trick or Treating. Of course this outing is wildly popular with Zoie. Dress up and get candy from people's houses?...doesn't get much better than that.

This photo will teach me to take the pictures BEFORE we go out, not after

Just along for the ride
 Candy from the first house, can you tell she is excited?

Brother and Sister

My very talented sister-in-law Renae took some pictures of Simon for me. I of course wanted the two kids together as well but Zoie's willingness to cooperate was pretty minimal. She did get this really cute one of them though.

Thanks Renae for helping me capture the memories!

Simon Mark Lindberg

Monday, July 9, at 12:14 in the afternoon, we welcomed Simon Mark Lindberg into the world. Everything went well and we are now happily enjoying him at home.  As you can probably tell from the pictures below we all love him very much. Enjoy the pictures.

Just like Aunt Amanda

Zoie loves all her Aunts and Uncles dearly. She is always up for big hugs, snuggles, kisses etc.  She always squeals in glee and talks about them when she sees their picture.

But the "cool" aunt who she wants to be like is Aunt Amanda.  Here they are in their similar style skirts and painted toes at Easter.

Zoie is in luck because she is built a lot like Aunt Amanda (long and thin) and has a similiar loving fun spirit. She's not quite as bold as Aunt Amanda, which Zoie's mommy is ok with :).  Zoie even looks a lot like Amanda did as a young child and I'll admit to calling Zoie "Amanda" more times than is probably normal. So Zoie, you are well on your way to being a lot like your Aunt Amanda.

Safe with Daddy

My little girl absolutely adores her Daddy. She gets so excited when he comes home. Here she is at our Super Bowl Party. She was tired, so she just climbs up on Dad's lap and goes to sleep, despite all the noise.

She also thinks every "Prince Charming" from Aladdin to the Prince in Cinderella is the Daddy character.  Shows you how highly she regards her Dad. Can't say I disagree with her.

Cousin Buddies...and an Aunt.

Here are some pictures of Zoie's special buddies. Some of her cousins who she loves to play with. So thankful for each one. Oh yes and one picture with Aunt Amanda who she is also a big fan of.

Auto Show

In February our little family took a short trip to the Chicago Auto Show. We stayed at the Hyatt at McCormick Place on Friday night and enjoyed the show the next day. Zoie definitely had fun getting in and out of the cars. A fun family day.

You can tell where we are in life as we spent a considerable amount of time looking at the vans and larger SUVs....oh dear :).

Oh Boy!

Mark and I found out yesterday that our little bundle of joy is a little boy. He is doing well and is on track to come sometime in early July. We feel very blessed to have another precious baby on the way.

As far as Zoie's reaction, she'll tell you that there is a baby in mommy's tummy, that she is going to be a big sister, and she is having a brother but I don't think she truthfully understands what any of those things mean. She just knows that is the right answers.

Open wide

Zoie had her first dentist appointment today. I was a little nervous about the whole thing for those of you who have heard my stories, she typically is afraid of new things. I wasn't sure how she would feel about people poking around in her mouth. But she did great, she was such a big girl. She opened her mouth nice, followed instructions on how to use the sucker thingy, and was just an all-around trouper.

I was very pleased. No cavities to report and she is doing great.  Good job little girl!

 (yes I'm the dorky mom who took pictures of them cleaning her teeth)

Staying Warm

I know it has been some time since I posted anything. I just thought I'd post this cute picture of Zoie to add variety to the blog.  Have a great day and stay warm!
