Zoe and the Tooth


Believe it or not, it finally busted through. It's been over a month that she's been teething. She has been drooling profusely for a long time. But now, it's finally happened. A little tooth has broken through. It's her right front bottom tooth. Soon, she'll be biting and drawing blood. We're really excited to see her take this important step towards adulthood. What a special little girl.

Zoe at 4 1/2 Months

Wow! So much has changed in Zoe's world since my last post. She's been teething. Her lower teeth are reluctantly making an appearance. Soon she'll be biting everything in sight. Also, she has started on rice cereal, which she eats voraciously. Her first feeding went unbelievably well. After reading articles and books that told me to expectant reluctance to solid food, I was surprised to see how much she loved the stuff! On her first sitting, she ate nearly an entire bowl full of cereal. It was funny to watch her snap at the plastic covered spoon. We called her our little "Snapping Turtle." It was cute.

Also, she's really started to laugh and giggle a lot more. It's easy to make her smile, but it takes a lot of work (and luck) to make her laugh. It's extremely rewarding when you finally get her grin to open wide and shriek.

What a beauty. We love her very much.
