Sixtine showed a lot of interest in all these activities this week. She absolutely loves playing with water but more importantly, she likes the independence they provided. She expressed so much happiness and excitement while doing them. I love observing her as she concentrates to reach “perfection” and tries and tries again. I did not have to ask her to clean after herself. I simply made a cloth available for her and she naturally used it to sponge the… Read more »
Sixtine has been exploring the house (which is totally new to her perspective since she was only about 4 months when we left to Paris) for a good two weeks. Climbing, mouthing, touching, messing around and loved every minute of it. She was at first, very attracted to that little stand play table offered to her at Christmas by family members but seems to have lost interest in it.

When I pulled the baby’s pants down, revealing her legs, she shouted: ” She is a toy!” almost in shock. Then cautiously approached her, touched her legs at the tip of her finger and said: “Oh, no.” I thought it was hilarious.
