Wipe Escapade

I had turned my back for a moment to check on something, but when I turned around Heidi had gotten into the wipes and started pulling them out. Rather then getting upset over Heidi getting into them I got the camera and took this video, then tried to salvage as many wipes as possible.

Where's Heidi?

Heidi loves playing peekaboo on her own terms, and cannot be fooled.

Heidi's Headshake

Heidi has learned a new trick, she loves to shake her head back and forth when she gets her hat off and this is a fun video of it.

Bath Time

Heidi is a fan of bath time now, she used to hate it.

Now she loves bath time and splashing and being generally silly.

She especially loves getting her head scrubbed. She loves her bath toys.

Hello I'm Issss

Heidi Anne does so many cute little things
She says:
Dada--which is dad, (a lot)
Issss--which is Liss--aka mom (a lot)
Yeah--while clapping her hands together (a ton)
HI (on occasions)
Actions She Does:
She shakes her head No
Plays her own little version of Peek A Boo
Waves HI and Bye (different waves)
When she's hungry she opens and closes her mouth
She also taps her bottle with her hand when she's done drinking
And as always has the cutest smiles with little dimples
Rolls around (she thought about crawling today, but that didn't work)

Crazy Weekend Weather

Its seems you can tell when billing begins at my work, I do less posting. Anyhow we had a busy week, just running errands, like shopping, and going to Gossners (which we LOVE by the way). If you're ever in the valley you have to go to Gossners. The weather was SOOO nice on Saturday, we planned on taking Heidi Anne to the park for the first time, but after many errands, she became so cranky.
We thought "Okay, we'll take her to the park and feed the ducks tomorrow". Well, as anyone that lives up here knows, it was freezing cold on Sunday. We were only able to quickly feed the family of ducks that live by our office, because it started to rain. (Cute ducks, we feed them every few days during our lunch breaks, I bet I over feed them.)

P.S Heidi Anne has learned to shake her head No and to play Where's Heidi? As soon as we get those on video we'll post it. Char is trying right now to capture it, but she is a stubborn little girl sometimes.

Clapping Trick Video

This morning we were trying to get Heidi Anne to do her hand clapping trick. After Char left to start the car, Heidi Anne started clapping. When he came in, he tried to get her to do it and I walked by and said "She did it right after you left, great now your making a liar out of mommy" and as soon as I walked away Heidi Anne started clapping.

Snakes

I took advantage of Melissa in her postpartum state and convinced her that it would be a good idea to let me get a snake.
Here he was when we first got him!

The only problem was Snakes grow up. So I had to build a new snake enclosure.

Now boots is this big!

Ni Hao

I've been playing Mandarin Chinese since I was pregnant with Heidi Anne. Well last night we had the Ipod playing people speaking Chinese while we were cooking dinner with Heidi Anne in the high chair.
It was going over basic greetings "Ni hao" (pronounce it like knee how) (Hi) "Nimen Hao" (Hi to a lot of people). Like any good “so you want to learn another language” tape it does the pauses so you can reply. So we hear "Ni hao".....and then from the high chair we hear Heidi yell HI!!! and she was waving to the Ipod.
We were so shocked. We just looked at each other. I don't know if anyone will believe us, heck if both of us hadn’t been in there I don't think we would have believed one another.

Baby Shoes From Around the World

Charles parents travel a ton. Lately they've been bringing Heidi Anne little baby shoes from different counties. We're thinking about starting her a little collection and one day displaying them in a shadow box with a story of where they each came from. So if anyone goes somewhere can you bring back a little baby shoes for Heidi girl? Here is her collection so far: These cute little booties are from Guatemala--Same with the cute hat belowThese little pink leather shoes are from Morocco
Finally these adorable pink satin shoes are from China
Not a bad start for only being 8 months old. I think it'll be a cute little collection, something very unique for show and tell when she's in Kindergarten.

Here Fishy, Fishy, Fishy

We had a great weekend. We got up at 5 AM and we went down to Salt Lake to let my sister and her husband have a breakfast date for 8:30 am. We watched the girls and they had so much fun playing together. Rebekah and Rhett watched Heidi Anne while we ran a quick errend.
Then the four of us took the girls to the aquarium at 11:30 We have more pictures on the Flickr account, there is a link conveniently on the side bar of the blog!
Kaikai had a blast. This is her looking at the Coral Reef Exhibit
Above-Char, Heidi and Me in the Amazon Exhibit-Below the Piranhas
Below are some pitures of and eel and jellyfish
After that we went to McDonalds for lunch. Around 3:00 we visited Chars Mom. Then we had a fun get together with my side of the family at 5:30. We left Salt Lake at 7-ish and got home around 9:00pm. It was a Long but very fun day!!
