How did it happen? It feels like we just brought Z home from the hospital yesterday. She’s growing so fast. Suddenly it’s dawning on me that we almost have a toddler, not a little baby! Z’s at a really fun age because she’s so curious about her surroundings and everything is a learning experience. You can just see the wheels turning as she grasps new ideas about how things work. She can now repeat what we say, and “Uh oh” is her favorite phrase. She can clap, wave, dance, sing, stand on her own, chase the cats, and is on full table food. She has a bunch of really good friends at school. She loves Goodnight Moon, Pat the Bunny, and Madeline. Z has to be the one to turn off a light when we leave a room. She likes playing outside and going for walks. She’s got an amazing personality, is low-maintenance, and is a very adaptable kid.
I’m so excited to see what the future holds for Z. I’m curious to see how well she’ll speak French and English and transition between the two. What will be her first words? What will she be interested in? Will she like sports? Reading? Traveling? What will she do when she grows up?
Parenthood is so exciting, and there’s nothing quite like it in the world. I wish it didn’t go so fast though. We’re so lucky to have our little Zozo!
