Satie returned to the Zoo for her second ever trip this week, and reveled in the experience and spectacle. She and her brother are proving to have similar interests, and they both continue to wow their parents with their sweetness, brilliance and beauty.
This year brought a tremendous amount of changes in little Satie’s world. A new little brother, a new schedule, new friends, and new skills. She has grown so much and we can hardly believe that one more year with her is already gone…
Goodbye 2012, we have had much fun together and we can’t wait to see what the new year brings.
In late spring Satie’s paternal grandparents celebrated their 40th wedding anniversary by cruising to Europe. They bought numerous treats for their grandchildren along the way. One such gift for Satie was a dress from Germany. This past weekend, she was finally big enough to wear it, and she’s never looked more lovely…
Satie’s dad went on his annual business trip to Orlando this past weekend, leaving Satie with her brother Sebastian and her mum for a few days. She dealt with his absence a little better this year than last, having another little person around to commiserate with her.
She is growing and learning so fast and what comes of this are sometimes very humorous conversations about the world as she sees it. Lately when it is time for bed, she decides that it’s an excellent time to display her counting and reasoning skills. She gets into the pajamas, then she tries to convince the parent putting her to bed that she needs a certain number of items before she can go to bed -
Here she is, laying on the couch, trying to convince her mum that she needs to watch two more episodes of her favorite cartoon before it’s time to go to bed. On this particular day, her overwhelming cuteness won and her mum relaxed the rules and allowed her to watch the episodes.
Satie has become very aware of her surroundings, frequently commenting about going up or down hill when we are driving. We are teaching her direction by telling her which way we will be turning while driving in the car. She definitely has an opinion about where she is going and isn’t afraid to share it, as evidenced by this video surreptitiously captured this morning by her dad on the way to Grammy’s house.
Satie’s dad just posted a picture of her brother getting tickled, so it only seems fair that a video of Satie being tickled should follow:
