How much fun is Monkey Island

Zoë's aunt Lauren wins the prize for early development toys. This is a pretty amazing piece of equipment. When you kick the monkey, his tummy lights up and a little tune tinkles away. There are all sorts of whimsical, colourful friends to find. This is the sort of thing Zoë really needs at this point. She is SO delighted with this little baby station and happily flails away while observing all the dangling objects.


This photo was taken as a screen shot in Skype. I was "monkeying" around and took the shot while watching Zoë interact with Monkey Island. Our family has an affinity for monkeys, so how perfect is this. She's already a very observant little monkey in training.

How fabulous is it that you can see AND take a snapshot from Skype! The only problem is trying to find where Skype dumps your photos. That took some REAL monkeying, let me tell you.

In case you want to try this...the path for finding the photos is:
Computer>LocalDisk(c:)>Users>Owner>AppData>Roaming>Skype>Pictures

  2. So far, "tummy time" on Monkey Island lasts for about 1 minute, followed by play time on the back for about 25 minutes... but we're expecting this to change quickly in the next few weeks as Zoë gets better at holding up her head and manipulating her arms and legs. It's amazing how fast she's developing at this stage!

  4. Leslie: Love this picture of Zoe watching Monkey Island. I hope the green and white outfiit fits her for, Wednesday, March 17th, St. Patrick's Day. Think she has quite a lot of Irish in her genes. Love, Mom.
