So that house is a no-go. It was on the market for 6 months with no takers. All of a sudden 3 offers - we were all at the same and then one person decided to waive an inspection Seller opted for that one. I'm totally bummed but, from a seller's perspective, it makes absolute sense. It was a great house, great property, low taxes, and had an apartment to help with mortgage. It completely sucks but I guess it just wasn't meant to be. Granted, those people could somehow decide not to sign the contract and it could come back to us but I'm not going to hold my breath.
This all happend on my birthday which kinda stunk. Then we went out and celebrated with friends and good food. Ziva slept at my in-laws for the night (first time ever!). She did fine. I was all weirded out. They didn't believe us when we said she sleeps in on the weekends. She woke up around 7:30, Steve went in, Ziva took one look at him and went back to sleep. Around 8:30 or so she got up. They then gave her a nap at 9:45. She pretty much only naps once a day now so I was worried about that. Anyway, we went for a hot stone massage and facials on Saturday and then as the day progressed I just felt myself getting sicker. Temp (when I checke it) only went up to 100.5 but I was getting shivers and sweats and all that fun stuff. Today has been a lounging day.
Ziva is awesome. She gives hugs and kisses now - even says muah when she kisses. She can point out her (or your) belly, eyes, nose, feet, mouth, and brain. Brain amuses me. We're working on ear. I showed it to her and she showed it to me a few minutes later but that was the only time I tried. She can say mama, dad, uppa (up), duck, more, nana (banana), night night, elmo, and uh oh very consistently. I feel like Im forgetting other words - she no longer says cooper or dog which is weird. She points out ducks and quacks. She can moo like a cow but sometimes says mmmmm instead of mooo which makes me laugh. She will also say "baa" but can't figure out how to oink like a pig. She can run, wave, clap, point, shake her head yes or no (and mean it), go upstairs and down (if it's just one stair she can easily go up/down otherwise she crawls) sign more and all done. She does another sign too but I have no idea what it is. I'm guessing daycare taught it to her? Need to ask them about that. She picks out her shoes every day and will match up our shoes into pairs and wants to decide what ones we should wear as well.
I also realized that I make a lot of random sound effects through out the day. I know this now because Ziva copies most of them. It's pretty funny. She laughs all the time. Even if I just pretend to tickle her she cracks up. She's a very happy girl but can also throw her serious face at you when she wants something and you are just not getting it.
