Zoe is growing

This video is from a few months ago. Zoe has been jabbering for a while now. She started saying Dadadada and she still says that a lot. She loves her Daddy!

Zoe has been rolling since she was 4 months old. It used to be her main form of transportation. Now she is almost 8 months old and is on the move! She is crawling and enjoying being able to get around on her own. Its so fun to watch her determination and strength when she is going for something she wants.

Catching up....

I have a few pictures from the past few months that I want to post. Hopefully, I will get caught up and get back into my regular blogging schedule. Enjoy!





Jeremy is really good at playing with the girls on Saturday and Sunday mornings so I can sleep in a little. He's a wonderful dad and husband! We are the luckiest girls in the world to have him!




We were so surprised one Monday morning when Elder Gage and his companion showed up at our front door!! We love Elder Gage and pray for him every day. It's been so nice being able to be so close to him during his mission. He is a great missionary, cousin, nephew and example for so many!







This is what Clara wanted to do on her birthday. We went to the park and Clara played for as long as she wanted. She has no fears when it comes to climbing, playing, swinging and exploring. This is the biggest slide in the park and it was the first place she ran to when we arrived.




This is Zoe hanging out while we ate at IKEA in Atlanta!







Zoe loves reading and being read to. She especially loves laying in bed with Clara while we read bedtime stories.




This week we went to the park with Clara's friends Sam and Sadie. Clara played and had so much fun being outside in the beautiful weather!

Clara and Zoe love each other so much! They have been sleeping in the same room since Zoe was about 4 months old. They fall asleep laughing and talking to each other. Zoe laughs at almost anything Clara does. They are learning to share and play together. I love my girls and it makes me so happy to see them enjoying being sisters!

Anniversary Adventure in Atlanta

My wonderful husband surprised us with a family trip to celebrate our 4-year anniversary. We left early Friday morning and came back Sunday just in time for church. We went to Zoo Atlanta, Georgia Aquarium, Stone Mountain, IKEA, stayed at a fun hotel, went swimming and had so much fun being together as a family! Here's some pictures from our wonderful Anniversary Adventure in Atlanta.








This is us on top of Stone Mountain. It was a gorgeous view. We got up there right at sunset and enjoyed this amazing place.








We rode the Sky Lift up to the top of the mountain and back down just in time to find our seats in the grass to watch the Laser Spectacular. What a wonderful day!



Even Zoe had fun riding in the stroller . She was a great trooper to hang out while we ran around everywhere!



Clara loves animals so she was in heaven. She was so close to so many animals and was even able to touch some of them. :)




















I wish we could just take road trips everyday and spend every second together as a family. Unfortunately, someone has to work to pay for all of our fun adventures. Thank you Jeremy for being such a wonderful husband and father. You provide for our needs, wants and so much more!! Your girls love you!!

Birthdays!!









Jeremy and I both turned 28 this month!! We had great birthday parties with our friends and families. Thanks Matt Rucker for these wonderful pictures! We also celebrated 4 years of marriage this month. I love my wonderful husband and the beautiful family that we are creating together. Clara will be turning 2 next month!! I'll be sure to post some pictures and updates on my 2-year-old next month. :)

Fall Creek Falls

We had an awesome Lifferth family reunion at Fall Creek Falls! Here are some of the main reasons why we loved our reunion:


*Lots of fun times in the water!! We swam almost everyday! Clara loves swimming! One day, Clara even swam about the distance of a football field from the shore to the waterfalls all by herself (with adult supervision of course). It was an exhausting swim, but she did it without a single complaint! *Fun family hikes and adventures in nature! So many family members helped with Clara and Zoe on our hikes. Grandpa and Cousin David carried Clara on some very difficult hikes. Thanks to our strong men!!




*Priceless moments together as a family! Jeremy is a hard worker and a very dedicated provider for our family which causes him to not be with us for most of the day. Every day Clara asks, "Daddy coming home?" So for us to be able to spend so much time with Daddy, it was a very special treat!









Below is where Clara had her big swim. She swam from the shore we are standing on in this picture, all the way to the falls behind us. She's a real trooper!










*FAMILY, FAMILY AND MORE FAMILY! We have a large & loving family! It was awesome to be able to spend time with everyone. We love our nieces and nephews so much and it is great to see Clara developing relationships with her cousins. It was also so much fun for Clara to spend time with Grandma, Grandpa and her many aunts & uncles. We love our family! Clara is sitting in my lap as I type right now and she is very loudly and excitedly pointing to each person in this picture and telling who they are! So cute! :)

Summer Fun!

Grandma & Grandpa Zurawski gave us a wonderful gift!! SESAME STREET LIVE!!! We went to see 1, 2, 3 Imagine with Elmo & Friends at the Bridgestone Arena. We weren't sure what it would be like and if Clara would enjoy it or not, but we ended up all having a wonderful time. The show was very entertaining for the whole family!!

We love living so close to Chris, Julie, Landon & Parker. Clara wakes up from most of her naps saying, "Landon & Parker come over." She loves her cousins and they love her! Landon & Parker also love and take great care of Zoe. They are gentle with her and love holding her.







Here is another picture of some of our fun times we had with the Gage's while they were visiting us here in TN. We love the Gages!
