Well, I haven't written in a while and I don't have much time as I hear Zoé wiggling in her crib.
A lot of things have happened recently and I am thrilled to share our latest news.
Big big step: Zoé passed her in-water evaluation and will be a SNAP (Special Needs Aquatic Program) member in January 2010 for the new semester.
Her friend Drake also passed and so she already knows a poolmate!
I took her in the water: heated at 98 F!!! A real treat to walk in the shallow end. Zoé had to catch little floaty things with a net, she had to push a ball to the instructor, "swim" from one side to the other kicking her legs and drenching me as she went along. We danced in a circle with two other little girls and their mom singing "Ring around the Rosie" as we all fell down in the water.
David came, and it was fun to have Daddy in the audience.
David also came to Kindergym in the morning where Zoé had fun driving her mini coupé and tumbling under a parachute, listening to songs and splashing water and molding playdo. It was a real treat to have Daddy with us. We can only take part in family activities on the wekend, and for Zoé it is true delight to enjoy both Mom and Dad.
Our family treat is that Aunt Odile is here from NYC and we've been having fun hanging out and catching up. Zoé adopted "Ogui" right away!
On a different note, Zoé has "croup", she coughs up a storm and sounds like a barking seal on the San Francisco Pier. Hopefully she'll recover quickly.
See you soon on the blog!
