Zoya was thrilled with the cards she received in the mail...she asked me to take a picture and held this one (from Grandpa and Grandma P.) up and cheesed until I got my camera out! HA.
Saying "Dora"...she loved her Dora card from Kim
Lovin' her card from Christina in Switzerland ;)
She also got some pretty cool birthday packages from Grandma and Grandpa P., Aunt Debbie and family and Aunt Jane/Uncle Steve and family :) She loves getting mail!
Shawn and I bought Zoya her first dollhouse for her birthday. Let me tell you this girl LOVES this thing! I have never seen her focused for so long...I'm talking HOURS...like not even wanting to stop playing to eat PIZZA! She was so sad she had to stop playing with it to take a nap that she almost cried and I told her she could play as soon as she woke up. Dontcha know she wakes up from her nap and signs "house" and "play." Crack me up! Uncle Bub bought some cool people and doll house sets to add to her collection too! Pretty cool. It is a great therapy activity, working on fine motor control, speech (requesting people/items), and imaginary play. And I think I love this doll house as much as her...I love watching my little-big 3 year old use her imagination while playing with this doll house! (Other than putting the baby in the oven, most of her play is pretty real HA! And it reminds me how much she has learned by being loved).
I think I saw Uncle Bub playing with the doll house while Zoya took a potty break...thats how cool this thing is! Ahahah!
Zoya got a little kitchen set from Grandma and Grandpa B...I love the imaginative play stage and this girl is totally into it lately :)
Another post to come all about Zoya's birthday party. Going to bed dreaming of the sweet memories that were made this weekend. My favorite memory? Zoya getting her party guests to sing happy birthday to her no less than 10 times and eating up all the love an attention showered on her...more to come tomorrow!
