The Tragic Optimist

Zoe’s first birthday (observed)

We celebrated Zoe’s birthday today – and took her monthly photo.

Which brings me to my first question – now that Zoe is one year, how often should we take the rock hammer as scale pictures? Still monthly? Quarterly? Yearly?


No needles or doctors today, just people

and cake (from a local grocery store bakery that does free first birthday cakes – yay!)

Zoe liked the cake

and the wrapping paper



  1. I wish I could have been there – not only is Zoe absolutely adorable, the cake looks good too!

    can you keep monthly shots for at least another six months or a year before going quarterly? they are SO fun.

    Happy birthday Zoe! Great to see everyone in the pics!
