Michael decided to take Zoë to "Music on Monday" in their local area. I think as the primary care-giver and being a guy, this was a really courageous move, considering what all of us have lived through taking babies to play groups. Groups of women are not necessarily easy, then again, perhaps Michael will have a different take on the assembly.
In two weeks, Zoë is already learning many new tricks, partly they think from observing the other kids and partly because she is now NINE MONTHS OLD! She's getting stronger all the time and by the look of this latest recording, I don't think she's far away from walking.
Just a few disclaimers prior to airing this latest production. The pile of mud that you see the baby crawling towards is a squashed mole hill, and she didn't get into this one. In Belgium they have a huge mole population, which is also going to add a new dimension to Michael's child-minding chores.
Secondly, you should notice the home decor that consists of pillow, mattress, and futon barriers...I think Zoë will have conquered those by next week, just as her mother did the board and brick bookcases she scaled in Switzerland some thirty three years ago:)
The music comes up a little louder just into the video, so be prepared.
Zoë and her Da Da Da are over there now, clapping up a storm and learning all sorts of new tricks. Ma Ma Ma has had no sleep in several weeks due to all this new learning activity and the emergence of new teeth. Maybe this why they put pretzels in the M&M's!
