Now that Zoe can sit up by herself it's a lot easier to give her a bath - or let her splash around. I bought a set of foam letters & numbers that are bath toys. They stick to the tub & tiles when they're wet. The "8" apparently tastes the best. It's just the right shape for her little hands to grab onto. I can't decide if we should take baby swim lessons. It's kind of scary to put a baby in a pool [and it's kind of scary to put me in a swimsuit]. Maybe next year when she's walking it will be easier.

I've been painting Zoe's bedroom walls for many, many months. I started the wall on the right when I was pregnant, and now it's mostly hidden by furniture. I started the wall behind her crib in January and have repainted it several times. I finally found a design that I think looks right. Zoe really loves to be outside and feel the breeze and look at the trees, so I wanted her room to have a nature feel. This wall is going to have a night-time theme, so I'll add a moon and I think a happy owl on the tree branch. The mountain needs some work, too. The other wall has a big, swirly tree with an orange kitty sleeping in it. There's a big white dog in a flower patch behind the changing table. The other walls are windows & closet, so when I'm done with this, the room will be finished! Well, until Zoe grows up and doesn't like it.

I went to a local farmer's market near the UW campus. The fruits & veggies were really colorful and perfect. I bought a few things for dinner and a $5 bunch of flowers. It was a special Berry Spectacular weekend. I don't know if you've ever had Tayberriers. The look like blackberriers but are the color of raspberries. They taste like wine, maybe a sangioviese.

Here's a video of Pete acting his shoe size.

Zoe was off of her normal routine for a few days after she got her shots, which always happens. Today she seems to be settled back in to: breakfast, play, nap, lunch, play, nap, snack, play, nap, dinner, play, sleepytime. It makes it easier to plan my day of : zoe, zoe, shower, zoe, zoe, lunch, zoe, zoe, internet, zoe, zoe, dinner.
The sun is out today, so maybe we'll take a walk and look at the trees.
