It’s been awhile since this blog has been updated, but I’ve been busy having a baby. Isn't she beautiful? Her name is Zoë and she was born on July 3. Something miraculous happened last week. Zoë the person started to emerge from within the baby shell. It started after our morning feeding. While she was looking at me straight in the eyes, I was singing to her that I love her and then gave me a big smile. There’s no way it was gas. She stayed awake more that day. In the afternoon, I put her in the play gym. She looked at herself in the mirror and wiggled with delight. In 10 minutes she managed to scrunch closer to the toy and put it in her mouth. It doesn’t sound like a huge accomplishment to an adult, but it was amazing to watch a 4 week old baby realize her goal.
