If you are a keen observer of this blog, Zoe’s green dress might look familiar. My very favorite picture I ever took of her, she is wearing this dress, She was 7 months old and Father’s Day was a week away. I grabbed her and my camera and plunked her down on the yard and snapped away. I actually passed up the picture at first, thinking she was making a funny face. Then I looked again…and realized she looked like a doll. And I love it so much, its the centerpiece of my business card. Really, my card folds open and inside is the picture of Zoe in her green dress. Now she actually fits into it and I’ve been looking forward to putting it on her again. So when we went to The Planting Fields Arboretum last week, I threw it in the bag in hopes of capturing something special again. As usual, Zoe didn’t disappoint.
I made sure to bring the same necklace and headband that I used in the original picture:
I love the picture on the right of her walking and her little expression. She was doing her usual talking/singing while she walks:
I love this picture. And I love Maddie dancing in the background in her Zozobugbaby dress:
She was enjoying playing on the steps. I should also point out this is where we took our wedding pictures:
Zoe displayed a new talent all of a sudden. She started crossing her arms over her chest. I have NO idea where that came from, but she did it and my friend Jessica and I just looked at each other and laughed. Good thing Zoe decided to show off a new talent when she had two cameras on her!
She’s also smiling back at me now and she loved kicking around the gravel path:

One of Zoe’s very favorite games is being chased. If you tell her “I’m gonna git you!” she bursts into giggles and runs! She used to just crawl really fast, but she’s quite the runner! That’s my friend Jessica “getting” her:
Looking over her shoulder to make sure I’m getting her and Maddie getting her too:
My favorite part of this picture is Maddie in the background. I wish I had realized how cute she looked and snapped a clear shot of her too:
Jessica snapped this picture of me & Z and I seriously couldn’t love it more:
