Every time Zoë saw a picture of herself, she would say, “baby.” So, we tried to explain to her the baby in the picture was actually her by saying, “It’s you, Zoë.”
Well, she understands that it’s her in the pictures, but now she thinks her name is, “Itsyou,” because every time she sees a picture of herself, she gets all excited, points at the picture and exclaims, “Itsyou!” and then points at herself and then back at the picture.
She absolutely loves looking at pictures and videos of herself, so we get to laugh about this one pretty regularly.
We’ve been trying to keep Zoë busy with lots of fun activities lately. We’re always reading, coloring and just having a lot of fun. This last week, Zoë has been having so much fun that she hasn’t wanted to take a nap.
She’ll be completely exhausted, but doesn’t want to miss out on the fun, so there have been a couple times in the past week where she has just fallen asleep in her high chair while coloring.
She got to play with playdough for the first time last week. We found a recipe for homemade playdough, so we made some this week. It’s super easy to make (and it’s non-toxic), so if you want the recipe, check out Chrystal’s Mommy Blog on Wednesday and you can get the recipe.
We also got another package from Mimi last week (thanks Mimi!). Zoë got a new dress and a bunch of hats to dress up with (along with a few other things). She loves her new little dress. Here’s a picture of her wearing it getting ready to go shopping.
And for those of you wondering, Zoë’s little sister still hasn’t arrived. Chrystal was due on the 4th, but Kaylee is more than content right where she is for now. Hopefully next Monday we’ll have pictures of Zoë and Kaylee together to share!
