Unlike on Christmas Eve, the fireworks woke Zoë up on New Year’s Eve. Daddy bundled her up and we took her out on the front and back balconies so she could see everything that was going on.
The fireworks were amazing, but there were fewer and they didn’t last quite as long as they did on Christmas. Here’s a taste of what she got to see:
One more box of gifts arrived from family in the States last week. Zoë got a new Tinker Bell blanket from Leslie, Ted, Jennifer and Joe. She loved it and insisted on curling up in it on the couch as soon as she opened it.
We’ve been going to quite a few BBQs now that it’s summer, and it has been a lot of fun for Zoë getting to play with other kids.
And of course, she’s adding more new words to her vocabulary every day. A few of the words she has started using in the last week are “ice,” “gracias,” “kay-ee” (Kaylee, while she’s patting mommy’s belly), “ow-ee” and “chau baby.”
