Happy 5 months baby girl!!

 My sweet pea you are getting smarter and more clever each day!
Zoe can roll over from tummy to back (and will do it EVERY TIME-- she still hates tummy time). She can pull herself up to a sitting position with minimal assistance and can even push her legs up to a standing position with our help. She weighs 16lbs 8oz and eats between 5-6 ounces of formula per feeding. She had her first taste of solid food - Avocado! .. wasn't a fan. She got her first cold and because she had such a hard time shaking it, the doctor recommended using a nebulizer. Z is very vocal and has an almost unbelievably loud screech. She is so alert and loves to reach out and touch the face of whomever is carrying her (and if they're lucky, she'll lean in further and give a hug!)
Avocado take - 1
Avocado take - 2 (much better!)

From Ms. to Mrs ..My sister's wedding!

Miss Z had her first mini vacation last weekend. We packed up all of our gear (with a baby this means: bottle warmer, Pack and Play, Tub etc..) and checked in to the Deauville hotel on Miami Beach for my sister's long awaited nuptials. We arrived Friday May 3rd in the afternoon and got a room with a spectacular view!
 I spent Saturday night with the bride because I knew it would be the only time we'd have to catch up.. Weddings are always so "go, go, go"!
The next morning we woke up bright and early. My sister was off to the salon and I was off to spend time with my squishy.

Bath time in paradise

Mom and Sister
 Zoe came out to greet everyone for a few minutes but it wasn't long until it was time for her bed time and she was cranky. M and Z spent most of the wedding in their jammies in our room. Cause folks, that's how it goes when you have an infant ;)

My first Mother's Day

My Biggest aspiration in life is to be as good a mother to my daughter as my mother was to me.
My first Mother's Day was beautiful! The weather was gorgeous and we had brunch with my in laws at Fairchild Tropical Gardens in Coral Gables. Since my mom worked that day, we had brunch with her at home the day before.
There was an Italian theme.
 After brunch we took a stroll around the garden and into the butterfly conservatory.

Lucky me! A butterfly on my shoulder
 The sun and all the excitement must of gotten the best of Zoe 'cause she knocked out!
