It's been a while since my last post - the iphone blogger app lost and deleted a post that took forever for me to type and I got discouraged and gave up for a while!
In the meantime, I've been busy here is info on the little munchkin Zara...
Zara is seriously the happiest baby. She is constantly smiles. And when you smile at her she wiggles her body in happiness then buries her head in my neck.
She goes to bed at 6:30 and wakes at 5:30 - trying to shift this back by an hour but no luck. By 6:30 she has us up for the day and when we are trying to get out the door and on the road to daycare she is sleeping for her first nap!
Zara definitely "turns into a pumpkin" after 6:30 - eye rubbing, head drooping, cranky pants. Ayla could (and still is able to) hang as late as possible. This makes late dinners difficult because Zara needs her bed- Ayla could sleep in her car seat anywhere.

Says "Da da da" and "Ay ay ay" (no ma ma ma)
Rocks on her hands and knees but no crawling yet
Big sister reads to her and makes her laugh
Is completely different than Ayla
I explained the premise of our Sunday Foodie Football days to a colleague at work (and a Raider fan) and his eyes lit up and he said in a patronizing tone, "ooooohhhhh the Steelers haven't had a losing season in so long that you are JUST learning to cope now- as a Raider fan, football has not been stressful for a while"
