This video isn't terribly exciting, but I love the look on her face. She hardly ever pays any attention to the tv - usually just when there is a sing-songy commercial or little kids talking. This was the first time that I have turned Sesame Street on; how is it so magical? It happened to be Elmo singing with his monster-friend Zoe about sharing. Sweet!

On Tuesday I went with my friend Jen & her baby Rowan to a movie. A neighborhood theatre has "cry baby Tuesdays" before 6pm and we thought we'd try it out. Neither of them cried but they did spend some time giggling and shrieking at each other. Rowan fell asleep and Zoe insisted on crawling around on the floor attempting to put crusty Junior Mints in her mouth. I thought it was all okay until a very mean woman yelled at us on her way out about how "disrespectful" it was to bring babies to a movie. Jen explained that it was Tuesday, but she didn't care. The poor movie theatre owner got yelled at, too. He was just trying to do something nice for moms. Yucky mean woman!
It's cold and gray here today. We've been sunny and hot for so many weeks, it didn't feel like Seattle in September at all. I think I can pick another bowl of blackberries today. There's probably room for a few more in the freezer.

Turn the volume up and listen to Zoe's babysaurus sounds! She likes to growl and make weird raspy noises. Also, a little crawling action toward our potted tree. She did have a dress on but it kept making her cry because she kept getting her knees caught up in it.

This afternoon we took a walk to the neighborhood park. I picked some blackberries along the way [should have brought the BIG bowl this time!] I put Zoe in the baby swing and she probably could have stayed there all day. But there was only one swing and some other parents with babies kind of waiting around. After the swinging we sat on a blanket in the grass and enjoyed some sunshine.
