Noink!

Out of nowhere, Zoë started using the word “noink”. I think she absorbed it in the womb while her momma watched Pink and the Brain. It also helps that she’s a big ham.

Things to do while not taking a nap (according to Zoe)

1. Throw all toys in your crib over the side and then call to them. “Quincy, where are you? Annie! Annie!”

2. Pretend to sneeze and tell yourself “bless you”

3. Sing your versions of the theme songs of your favorite shows :

Little Einsteins: “Going, trip, rocket, 345 rocket now!”

MIckey Mouse Club House: “Yakko, yakko, minnie mouse, dot! Yakko, yakko, Minnie mouse, dot!”

Zoë is one polite little lady!

Z has been doing a wonderful job picking up manners. She is very quick to say “please” and “thank you” and is always gracious when receiving gifts or help. Last week, however, she completely floored us.

I had got her out bed around 7 or so and we sat around playing until it got a little closer to 8 and I needed to get ready for work. I said “Zoë, so you want to go see mommy?” she excitedly said “oh, yeah!” like I had just reminded her that Maryanne existed. We walked into our room and Z, upon seeing Maryanne asleep, looked back with a hesitant expression on her face. I said, “go ahead” and she slowly walked over to Maryanne’s side of the bed.

In a sweet little voice she said, “excuse me….excuse me, momma”.

Maryanne said it was one of the best wakeups ever.

I’m kinda partial to the mornings when my door busts open and I hear Z scream “Daddy!!”, but to each his own.
