In our home, spring means birthday celebrations. In fact we will have 4 birthdays to celebrate in under a months time. 3 have already passed. And for me, another reminder of how quickly time has marched on. Beautifully so in many ways.
The girl wonder welcomed her 7th year. We had a rather small little gathering and since the Oscars were that day, that's the theme that we went for and Zoey enjoyed every, single moment. Including the entire awards show.
And for her birthday, we thought it was time for a new carseat. She didn't so much outgrow her old one, rather wore it out. Which is true with many of Zoey's things. It's that slow and steady thing, don't you know?
Next up was Caitlin. My beautiful second born. Talk about time flying.
Rounding out the March birthdays was Jake Matthew. Who somehow, over night, turned into an honest to goodness teenager.
And tall. Like my height already tall. He had a video game truck that came to the house. A bunch of good buddies that celebrated with him and yeah, I think and I think he would say, it was a really great start to being 13.
It's been so nice to receive comments and emails form people saying how much they have missed checking in here. Seems the consensus has been, how much they have missed Zoey. Which I find so absolutely sweet and telling as to the impact she has had on so many people's lives. In ways I most likely will never know. Which some people may find odd. At least those who aren't into blogging and online journaling. But I know for a fact, since starting this blog almost exactly 6 years ago, so much good has come from this space. Maybe that is why I have returned. Who knows. But yes, thank you, especially to those who have never commented or sent me a correspondence before. Thank you for letting me know you are out there.
One last picture. Since so many have been missing their Zoey fix. A picture from awhile ago. One collage of a few pictures I took when I was on hiatus. She really is rare and she is absolutely beautiful. And I do love her. Heart and soul.
