    • i typed and retyped this post twice, not to mention worked on it over a 3 day period. tahoe made the first draft, sadly…i forgot to add it to the current post. thanks for bringing it to my attention!

  1. Eeeeeee!!!!!!!!!!!

    Zoey is so beautiful and her LIPS. Holy smokes her lips are the best. I want to pinch her cheeks and eat her feet all day long.

    Need a babysitter?? I could train her to be my sidekick and then we could become a crime-fighting, private detective duo: Zoë & Zoey Esq.

    I miss you. I’ve been a deadbeat dad of friend and for that, I am sorry. Congratulations on the most beautiful girl on the planet.

  2. Ah! Your baby is SO SO CUTE! What a wonderful family you have! I love your 2011 story! May your 2012 be even more totally awesome!

  3. First time reader here, but WOW what a year you had! Congratulations on your marriage and new addition, Zoey is beautiful! I hope you have a wonderful start to 2012 and may the year bring you many more amazing memories!

  4. I love this post! Such a creative way to lay out your (very busy!) year!!! Kind of funny looking back at your pregnancy announcement and saying you were wishing for a little girl who had red hair. :) I can’t wait to read about your adventures this year!
