Here's more video of us asking Ziva where something is. At this time we think the game is fun as does she. When it becomes more of game involving where's the: car keys, my wallet, the hair brush, the dog...then there may be issues. Until we will keep having fun and taping it for your viewing enjoyment.

Finally got a "where's your belly?" video. It's not as good as we wanted but it sort of shows you what she does. The second one is a demonstration of how she takes off her bib. I have been wondering this for a while and now I know. I can't believe she has almost been ripping her head off in order to get her bibs off. I have told her if she would only stop drooling like a mad man she wouldn't have to wear them.
Ziva knows where her belly is now. It's really cute to see her point at it when you ask. Then we cheer and she cheers and smiles. It is darling. However capturing it on film is hard. She's really only playing in these clips though I set out to get her to "show me her belly." It may be boring for some of you but I know the grandparents will enjoy.

"Talking" and Playing
If you did not get one I am sorry. Like I said it was a test run. There was suppose to be a test run making hand print turkey cards for Thanksgiving. After careful thought in regards to how the 10 month old would deal with all that paint on her hand, I nixed the project.
But I was all ready for these Christmas cards. I had all my supplies. I had scheduled my time wisely. I even had my helper elf...Jason. So last Saturday, sniffles and all, we started on the foot prints. After 5 I knew the project had to be abandoned. It wasn't going to work. First off, Ziva laughed and wiggled every time I painted her foot. Then she would fight me when I made the print. Therefor leaving me with a blob to work with. Secondly, once my helper elf learned we were making 100 he announced that I was crazy for thinking he was going to walk back and forth that many times to prop up the newly painted cards.
You see the make of a good artist is not always that they make wonderful art but when they can realize that a project is not going to pan out in any way, shape or form. In addition they have to be able to realize when the end does not justify the means. So...
I abandoned the project and bought pre-made cards the next day. I did take the picture below to remind myself how silly my plans can be. I hope you all enjoy your store bought cards.
Actually, since we didn't decorate this year (sniff) I have less to do than some people. Still I have hundreds of cookies to bake and package. Gifts to wrap, but I'm done shopping. Cleaning to do. And there's packing for that 10 day trip...ahhhhhh.
I have finished my cards and mailed them. I do still have Ziva's Bday invites to get together and mail out. You are all invited. If you want to show up in OKC Jan.3 from 12-2. Of course all the other prep for that.
So that is it with us. Gotta get to that list. Hope you are all well and ready for this season.
