Happy 1st Birthday Zoe!

Zoe...Zo, Zoe Girl, Zo-ster, Zo-ster with the Most-er, ZoPo...these are all the names Zoe has accumulated in her first year of life. No matter what we affectionately call her, she is loved by all of us!She entered the world exactly one year ago, March 31 at 9:28 pm after only 4 hours of labor. It is incredible to look back at pictures and see how she has grown. We are amazed at her abundant joy and fun-loving personality. Already we see her showing signs of taking after her mom in being passionate about expressing her feelings. Since she has learned only a few words so far (mama, papa, bah-bah for bye bye) screaming is her most often used technique to get her point across, and being that she is so happy this is often done with a little smirk. :)

Here are a few pictures from her day today.

Bright and early our birthday girl enjoyed breakfast (oatmeal and yogurt) and was eager to show me her cute scrunched up nose grin when she saw the camera...
Outside, enjoying the afternoon sun before naptime...
Satisfied after enjoying her first cupcake after her birthday dinner of Peanut Satay with Veggies and Tofu over Rice. Yes I know they say not to do the peanuts until 3 years old or something but she IS the second born, they get all the neglect :) I'd say she enjoyed the cupcake a lot more than the satay and tofu even though it was tasty...
Opening her present from Malachi that he wrapped by himself (mostly)...
Figuring out her new toy that Malachi picked out for her probably because he has a friend with this toy and wanted it for his own playing enjoyment :)...
Happy Birthday Precious Girl! We love you!!
