Can you believe...

Zoey has been home 16 months today?!?!!?

Last year at this time, we were celebrating 4 months home! So I've decided to use that same post a year ago to see how far we've come!

Amazing how fast time has gone by! Hitting our four month mark is a big deal since we waited four months and 4 days for our travel call after receiving Zoey's referral. She is doing remarkably well and has turned into quite the chatter box and much more of a toddler rather than a baby. She currently says about seven words, which sort of happened over night! She says bye bye (and waves), hello, uh-oh, go, no, mama and dada. She says probably 50+ words now and repeats every single word we say! The biggest milestone we have reached is that she is sleeping through the night consistently now! It's amazing what a difference that makes in our house with everyone! Her naps are better during the day and she is much happier during awake time. Still sleeping through the night and still an excellent napper! This girl now loves to sleep! Often times, we are having to wake her from naps and from sleeping in in the morning! The carseat is finally facing forward and she is now comfortable riding in the car with or without big brother. She absolutely loves the car now and enjoys just getting out even for short errands...She has definetly got a little naughty in her as she often does things she's not supposed to with a big fat smile on her face and promptly throws a little tantrum when we divert her attention elsewhere! Um, she has a lot of naughty in her now, and the tantrums are much, much larger! But that's part of being a two year old, right?!?! She will sit still for the most part so I can do her hair in the morning and while she still doesn't love her baths, she tolerates them much better than before. She loves the baths now, still have to catch her in a good mood to get her to sit still to do her hair! She is just walking everywhere and enjoys other people, as long as they don't try and pick her up! She runs everywhere, walking is no longer an option and she still enjoys people as long as they don't try to pick her up! We are so happy with our family of four and continue to enjoy our two little blessings! We are definitely happy with our family of four and still continue to enjoy our two little blessings!!

Here she is one year ago today...
