Jason taught Ziva how to build "houses" out of books (a little easier then cards). This is one of her creations.

Yes, I made my husband and daughter dress alike when they went on one of their father/daughter "dates." I made them where the matching shirts I got them for Christmas. I love the picture shirt so much. I love that it is so true for them. And neither of them had worn it yet so mommy felt it was time. Maybe it was a bit much that I made Z wear khakis too.
My husband felt it was time to introduce our daughter to scissors. I, on the other hand, could have waited until she was in Jr High. I let him have this one without a fight, not even a word. She loved it. I can sit her at the table and let her cut stuff and she'll stay there forever. It is good for her, but the first time something gets cut that shouldn't I will have to fight reminding Jason that he started it all.
Well, sibling rivalry has started to slightly raise it's head. It is doing so in the form of the "attention getter." You can tell Ziva feels a little "misplaced" at times by her new found zeal for attention. She actually asks to have her picture taken. No we are not ignoring her (except when she whines) or leaving her out, it's just the way it goes when you have more than one kid...so we are learning. Yes, we are making time to give Ziva her own special one on one time. Still sometimes she can't help herself and when that time comes it's "Look What I can Do" moments.

I called these pictures practice but they weren't really that. Jason gave me a new lens for my birthday and I wanted to try it out. I hadn't read up on it yet so I was "winging" it when it came to these pictures. I need an afternoon and some one-on-one teacher time to master this camera/lenses and new flash (also a bday present). Poor Ziva she looks every bit as forced as she was to take these pictures.
