Reflections from a 4 year old

Ziva turned 4 this week.

On our way home from school on her birthday, I asked her what she'd like for her birthday dinner.

Me: Ziva, what would you like for dinner tonight? You're the birthday girl, so you get to choose.
Ziva: I want...a tree!
Me: You want a tree for dinner?!
Ziva: No, I want a road for dinner!
Me: You want a road for dinner?!
Ziva: No, I want....grass for dinner!
(this went on for several minutes as she named everything she saw out the window as potential birthday fare.)
Me: Ziva, did you get a little sillier when you turned four?
Ziva: No, I got a little prettier.

9 months

Yesterday was the 9 month mark for our little Zo-Zo! A lot has happened in this last month--she started doing her "Bear Walk," two more teeth have come in on top to match the bottom set, she had an ear infection and a stomach bug (at the same time!), and just in the past week, she's started saying "Dada". I've officially lost her to Daddy.....maybe someday #3 will be a momma's boy :)

Zoe continues to be a happy baby! She plays well on her own (she LOVES the kitchen, especially the letter and number magnets on the fridge), but she loves playing with Ziva. No one can make this girl laugh like her big sister! She's becoming a pretty big explorer now that she's moving on her own so well. Ziva's room is probably her second favorite spot behind the kitchen, and she will head that way, then move as fast as she possibly can when she thinks you're coming after her and laugh. Pretty soon she'll be running! She already spends a lot of time on her feet, but with her hands on the ground too. Any minute I'm expecting her to just push herself the rest of the way up. I don't think it will be too much longer....

First snow!

February 13 was our first snow of the year. It wasn't much to speak of, but I guess it was enough to cancel school...wasn't really necessary, but we enjoyed the day off! Since it was a Monday, Vince was home too which made it extra fun. Zoe didn't get out in the snow this time, but Ziva had fun!

Two Daddy's girls :)

Zoe's Bear Walk

Watch closely at the beginning....this is Zoe's preferred means of travel. We're calling it the Bear Walk. She is fast, and I just have to laugh every time I see her do this!
