The Pediatrician

Posted by Briana Meade on Tuesday, January 31, 2012,

Today Zoe is five months old! I can't believe how fast it has all gone. Yesterday I took some pictures of her at five months. It was fifty degrees outside (pretty much  like spring/summer in Chicago!) and I had just gotten this crazy pink tu-tu in the  mail. Its called a "Ruffle butt" which seems entirely appropriate, considering. She had no idea why she was sitting outside on the cold concrete, staring at the snow without her snow-suit on. Its hard to get cute pictures in the winter time, so...

Baby (Signing) Genius

Posted by Briana Meade on Monday, January 23, 2012,
When I was in N.H. to visit my grandfather at the hospital last fall, I met a nurse with her six-month old baby. This little girl usually goes to daycare while her mom works. Her mom told me an amazing thing about this daycare her daughter attended. They teach the little girl sign language! I found this kind of unbelievable at first. She was only six months old, after all, but she could sign several different words. She signs "milk", "eat", and "mom".  It was amazing to see this little baby c...

The People I Stalk

Posted by Briana Meade on Thursday, January 19, 2012,
    I've really gotten into reading blogs. I have some really talented friends who write about anything and everything. Right now, Zoe is screaming her little lungs out in the background because she is "supposed" to be napping. I have to go check on her every couple minutes. Lets just say, this is one of those days when it would be nice to curl up with a nice blog, but yeah, that's not happening.
      Chris' best friend, Matt, has a sister (whom I have only met on passing) , and somehow I ...

A Day in the Life of "The Zo"

(From the perspective of "the Zo")
A Day in the Life Part I

5:30 a.m. My daddy, Chris stealthily attempts to get out of bed without waking me up. Because I now have the hearing capabilities of a predatory African lion on the Savanna, I almost always hear the rustle of the ties in the closet. He thinks he can do something without me getting involved. Ha! I'll show him!

5:32 a.m. I scream to let my presence be known. After all, who do you think rules the roost around here?

5:35 a.m. Yesssss. Pick...

"The Zo" refuses to jump

Posted by Briana Meade on Monday, January 9, 2012,

“The Zo" (as my cute little Einstein-hair cherub is now called sometimes), is anything but helpful. She does not want me to do anything but hang with her. I really thought I could get a lot done with her around, but that was when she slept more. It’d be fine if she wanted to g...

The Happy Light

Posted by Briana Meade on Monday, January 9, 2012,
 I haven't blogged because I have been kind of depressed with the whole permanently graying landscape outside my window. I recently had this conversation with my hubby 
 (who is the best thing that ever happened to me by the way, and has put up with all of my craziness lately).
Briana: "You know how I whine and complain every October because winter is coming?"
Chris: You mean how you talk for hours about the cold and darkness?
Briana: Yeah.
Chris: How you mope around the house? How you hate going...
