First Thanksgiving

Zoe enjoyed her first Thanksgiving in Rome with some good friends, especially Giacomo...

While Zoe cuddled with Zia Laura, the rest of us were put to work in the kitchen, slaving over a turkey with all the trimmings...

First Meal!!

6 months old!

Half a year already -- Zoe has learned to sit on her own and still "talks" up a storm. She's also ready with a smile for everyone, giggles when tickled and has already taken 8 flights and
attended 3 weddings...! Weight at 6 mo appointment: 7.9 kilos (approx. 17 lbs)

Zoe sitting on her new rug and (below) hamming it up with Alicia -- Gerry & Laura's gorgeous daughter (age 11 months). Zoe makes a visit to mom's favorite restaurant, Cul de Sac, while Erik Korpiel was visiting from Japan.
Below, Dan and Zoe out to brunch with friends from baby yoga class, Gina and her beautiful little boy, Declan. Gina is originally from Watsonville, CA -- such a small world!

Family and friends

Sorry to be so bad about keeping up with posts... Here are some catch up pics from the US visit... Zoe getting a seranade from Uncle Emmett -- a tune written especially for her!
The Schiappacasse-Valenzuela clan -- Abuela Loreto with Uncle Chris

Zoe loved cuddling with Auntie Barbara! Here they are getting ready for Halloween trick-or-treaters at Grandma Marcy's house (over 175 kids came to the door that night!)

Even though it's been a while since Aunt Diane held a little baby, the memories came right back and she was a natural expert once again -- a perfect comfy perch for baby Z...

Another expert mommy cradles Zoe like a pro -- with cousin Patsy it was love at first sight!
