Hello all!  I feel like a real smutz for not adding anything to the blog in so long...and you all have been checking in every so often only to find that we have been lazy.  Of course, tons of things have been going on, as I am sure the same has been going on in your lives.  

Well, for your viewing pleasure, we have a video of Zamara walking.  She started walking last the babysitter's house of course!  Our friend Shawn got to see the monumental first steps.  We captured some of it on tape yesterday though.   She was very interested in the cat, so she was a little distracted in the video. I cried on Wednesday when I found out I missed the first steps...those darn babysitters!  We missed the first crawling too.  The Tessmer's were the ones who got to see that first.  I did get to see her take her first steps on Thursday morning...where again there were tears, but this time of joy.  Zamara is now a busy little girl.  All she wants to do is walk now, but she is a bit clumsy and keeps falling.  So cute!! 

Zamara's birthday is coming up on March 8th.  We are having a birthday party at our house from 4:30-6pm on that day.  Anyone is welcome to join us.  Just let me know so I make enough cupcakes for everyone.

Oh, she is so adorable. I was getting teary eyed just thinking about how much I want to cuddle her. You need to tell your babysitter that if Zamara does other milestone type things that she is absolutely not allowed to tell you. ZiZi's Mommy and Daddy need to be the first to see everything new (whether you're actually the first or not). By the way, her little outfit is completely precious.

Also, I'm so happy that you posted. I check ALL the time and I've been so sad that there is nothing new to look at.

Great Anjo. We felt bad that we hadn't put anything up for so long. I am going to try to put a few pix up soon. Hope you are doing well!

Yay Zamara!

She looks so cute walking and the new pics are very cute too. I didn't realize she and Wesley were so close in age... They're only like 2 weeks apart! :)

How cool is she! It's only been a couple of months and she is now walking. :) It looks like you guys are having fun over there. Love and miss you all.
