We read a nice article in the NYTimes. It resonated with us... particularly with Zoe's daddy. Check it out!

6 months!

Hey everyone,

I'm 6 months old (and a few days)! I think I have mastered the art of giggling. I also love sitting with my feet in the cold water in the sink and playing with Ducky. He's a little tricky to catch but I can use my feet to hold him, better than my hands. Mom think that means that I will be a Kathak dancer since I am so talented with my feet. Anyway... one game that I love is hanging out in the bathroom with my feet in the sink (we call it "Spa time"), playing with Mom in the mirror. It's very confusing and cool the way that I see her playing with that other baby in the mirror and then she comes out of nowhere and kisses me! It makes me giggle. One day, Dad caught us playing this game and tried to video tape it... but I was too distracted by the video.

Also, I am really into big people food items. I never cared before, but now I like cups and spoons and bowls. When Mom and Dad eat, I try to see what they are doing by sticking my fingers in their food and also I think that cups are neat. One day, Mom spilled her juice on me because I pulled on the cup while she was drinking. It was funny. But guess what!? Now I get to eat big people food too. I got a sippy cup and it's more of a toy now, because I still don't know how to drink from it (personally, I still like Mommy's milk best). But the real big news is that I eat rice cereal once a day from a real bowl (sort of) and spoon! And... I like it! I gobble it down. By down... I mean down the front of my bib, but still I like it! Then we have bath time, which is also "spa time" and Ducky and I play while I get clean. Yup... life is good. Check out my videos!

Well... it's been a crazy hectic summer. We left NYC, we moved to Bethesda, Md. We went to CA for two weddings, and several other family events. We bought a car and have since learned that a certain person (initials are ZZ) isn't terribly fond of riding in cars. What else? Mom started working. Dad started full-time work in child development and house management, we call it "Zoe Studies 101" (except I think he's graduated to like the 200 series now). In short, we've turned our lives inside out and are still adjusting... sadly that has taken a toll on our blogging frequency :(

So dear readers, in the last few months, here's what we have learned about our little girl...


* kicking it at the capital,
* sparkly jewelry made by Didun (her grandmother),

* sweet cousins,

* reading,
* making funny faces with Dadu (her grandfather),
* dressing up pretty,
* Ratatouille (the movie caused her to stop feeding... for its entire duration!),
* the ice-cream and cake commercial for Baskin Robbins (go figure! I swear I didn't eat much of either while pregnant!)
* train rides (courtesy of Ninamashi)

Alternatively, ZOE HATES:
* riding in a C-A-R,
* car seats,
* new teeth (or rather, pain from ...)
* not being held or paid attention to ALL THE TIME!!! (thanks, doting people of California... now we are in BIG trouble.)

Hope the pics make up for the long absence. We vow to do better in the near future. As always ;)
