Quiet Time with Zoë

It's rare to have "quiet" time with a 20 month old girl. There are many of these special moments, but either one doesn't have a camera ready, or, if indeed the camera is spotted by said "girl", there is no way that the moment remains quiet for long. After several observations of this interactive play with "Pooh and Rabbit", the Professor and I were curious as to what she was actually acting out.

We can recognize several of her own "Zoë words"....the cutest being her name for herself which is "Doey".....note to parents, if you want early speech patterns chose a name beginning with "B"!!!

Up, and Uppy are her words for climbing up, and just about everything else is open to interpretation.

There is definitely a story here. Whether it's the rendition of Rabbit helping Pooh escape from a hole he's stuck in, or just colluding to run away..there is magic in this creation.



They are on their way to Hollywood today:)

  1. What fun observing three good friends retelling a story. Isn't it amazing how spellbinding the drama of a not yet two-year-old can be! Looking forward to the next chapter Zoë!

  6. This is just adorable! She is such a creative little girl, always inventing stories and having her own little adventures. We have now arrived in North Carolina for a few week stopover before heading on to our final destination in LA. Zoe was an angel on the flight over and is now busy chasing the cats as they try to find new hiding places. I'm so glad that she was able to spend some time with her Mamere and Papi in Belgium!

  7. I love how she is so capable of completely entertaining herself with her 2 "friends". She is a sweetie pie!

  8. There is nothing more adorable than baby chatter and baby breaths. No doubt about it; Zoë is going to be a chatterbox. I loved watching the Professor sitting perfectly still and observing the story with such love in his eyes.
