After noticing Zoe's love of music, our respite worker, Alison, has brought her keyboard and guitar a few times for Zoe to play with. Zoe has shown a real interest in keyboards lately. Interestingly enough, she only likes keyboards that sound like real pianos, not toys. It is amazing to watch her play. She has never just banged away at the keys but instead purposefully pushes the keys one by one while listening to what she is playing. She is quite serious about it and then all of a sudden will throw her head back and laugh. I guess it is time for us to look for a real keyboard since the little toy one we have is frustrating Zoe now that she has played the real thing.
Zoe loves to feel my belly and wait for the baby to kick her. Once it does, she will laugh and laugh. There have been times when Zoe is feeling my belly and will sign "Baby sleeping." And I think, "It is?" Sure enough, Zoe is right every time- the baby is not moving and therefore must be sleeping! Of course when the baby kicks Zoe, she will often sign "Baby walking." Well she is sort of right- the baby is using its legs and feet.
