Wow - April, huh? My last post was about three months ago. How time flies! Summer is in full swing here, even though the last couple of days have been rainy and cooler than normal. We picked four huge bowls of apricots off our tree on Sunday, and spent about an hour washing and cutting and freezing them. Now I have 14 Ziplocs of frozen apricots in my freezer, and I must figure out what to do with them. I can't plan to eat them too fast over the winter, because I already found out that too many at one time makes the eyes turn yellowish-orange. LOL! Apricot recipes, here I come!
Zoe is growing so fast.. she will be 15 months old on August 1, and will have her 15 month check up on Tuesday. We'll find out how much she weighs and how tall she is at that appointment. It's always fun for me to find out how much she's growing. She has consistently stayed in the 10th percentile for weight and 25th percentile for height, so I'm not expecting this check up to be much different. LOL. Because her pediatrician is completely booked for the next three weeks, and has 100 people on his waitlist (that's literally what the lady told me!), I scheduled her for another doctor. She has been to this other office once before, when she had a reaction to the antibiotics she was on for what turned out to be a non-existent ear infection. The nice doctor at this other office told me to take her off the antibiotic, and her rash went away right away! (Wow, that was a mouthful - "went away right away!") Anyways, Zoe has been walking for 5 months now, she has 9 teeth including some of her molars, she signs "please," "more," and "thank you," and she has a vocabulary of "daddy," "mama," "doggy" (everything is a doggy right now!), "please," and basic gibberish. She is starting to mimic more of what we say, and it won't be long now before we start having conversations. :) She is learning what it means when Mama says "no" to certain things around the house... and she is just a bundle of fun at all times! We are so blessed to have her in our lives!
What blessings God pours out upon His children, and we are so grateful for each new day to spend learning about Him and His purpose for our lives. What an honor to bring Him glory in all we do. May this day find you and yours rejoicing in His constant and faithful love to you, and may all the blessings of God be upon you!
