video of toy and tongue

Here's a new "Lydeo" that I took today. She's apparently not interested enough in the toy to try to grab for it, but she really does like it. And then towards the end, when she sticks her tongue out and just leaves it out, she's been doing that new trick the past few days. It cracks me up because she'll even turn her head to look at something else and her tongue will just still be all dangling like that

Speaking of videos, the last 10 days or so I've been showing her the Starter video in the Your Baby Can Read series. My mother in law got us that video a few months ago but it sat unopened for a while. Then one day I decided to pop it in and read the parents' section first and was amazed. The creator's 9 month old daughter was reading words off of flashcards. Like he'd show her the card that said hair and she'd reach up and play with her hair. Then he'd show her bellybutton and she'd lift up her shirt and poke at her belly button. The video also had a section where other children were reading too, at a pre-school age. I'm definitely not expecting her to be reading by such and such a date, but she loves watching it so far, and there are songs and activities (clap, find your eyes, hold your arms up, etc.) in the video. I have to help her do pretty much every activity right now but maybe in the future she'll start doing them as soon as the word pops up onto the screen. :)

My tie-dyed diaper business will hopefully still have an opening date of next month. Right now I'm in the middle of tying up all the diapers into their various patterns. It's going slowly. When hubby and I dyed DD's personal stash, we dyed 48 total diapers. But for my initial offering, I have 36 smalls and 54 regulars that need to be tied. So far I have almost all of the smalls tied but none of the regulars. I won't be able to do anything next week so I'm really trying to get it all done this week and get "preview" pictures posted on my store site.

Next week I'll be helping out my mother in law. She is having surgery tomorrow and will need a LOT of assistance for quite a while. My father in law is taking off the rest of the week but has to go back on Monday, so I said I'd come down and help her out when he goes back. I hope the surgery goes well for her.

Now Joseph won't let me do anything but watch this video. He keeps asking to see "babies." :)
