Making some noise
Zoe is now making all sorts of sounds. Hear some samples below:

and she's also holding onto things better, like her yellow rattle (a bit big for her still...) .
Her hair looks red in these photos but it's only cradle cap, which will hopefully go away soon.
Zia Toni came by to give the new rocking chair a spin...
This weekend we went out to a lake near Rome with our friends. It was a lovely day and Zoe seemed to enjoy being away from the heat and humidity of the city!

A weekend at the beach
Zoe's first real Italian beach experience, safely in the shade of course.
Mom making googly faces with little Z after a swim in the Med -- ahh summer!

Golden Gala Competition
We got to the stadium late and were frustrated to find that there was no elevator to get to our cheap bleacher seats with the stroller (ah Italy!), so we asked one of the officials for help and she showed us to a shorter flight of stairs leading to some open seats -- little did we realize it was the winner's circle! There we were with all of Rome's VIPs, and Dan got chummy with Marion Jones and her coach while taking Zoe for a stroll... Unfortunately the photo is blurry from the protective glass in front of our seats, but the woman in blue sitting down is Marion Jones, and the man next to her is her coach.

Two months old!
We finally received our shipment from the US, which was full of gifts and clothes for Zoe including the baby gym pictured below. She loves it!!

Zoe has now started putting things in her mouth ... beginning with her bottom lip...
... and, unfortunately, has also become fussier, especially in the evenings. Luckily, walking her around the house seems to calm her down until she's ready for bed.
