Happy 8th Birthday Zoe!

 Zoe at 8

Zoe at 8

Somehow (no matter how vividly I remember my water breaking like it was yesterday) Zoe is 8 years old today.

She devours books.  She loves writing and doodling.  She loves science and asking questions, and will Google things to get answers if we don't have them.  She can whack a softball with a bat.  She can swim laps of freestyle, backstroke and breast stroke (and is working on butterfly).  She can wiz down the street on her bike.  She loves animals, and would probably be in heaven if we had a zoo in our yard.  She's a perfectionist to a fault.  She hates peanut butter.  She hates ketchup.  She loves steak (and any meat really).  She loves steamed clams.  She's not a huge fan of candy.  She loves ice cream, and her favorites right now are chocolate, mint chocolate chip, and cookie dough.  When you think you know exactly what Zoe is about... she'll change it up.  You just never know.

My baby.... she's 8.
