Playing Surprise

Elliot was kind enough to video Chloe and me playing a game that she LOVES to play.  If she had her way, we’d play it morning and evening, weekdays and weekends, over and over and over.  She loves the “Shhhhhhing” and the secrecy of the game.  The suspense is sometimes too much for her — you can see her body tighten with excitement and expectancy.  She even covers her head while we play.  And she faithfully says and signs, “Thank you” every time.  It cracks me up.  She’s so sweet.  Enjoy!  (Hoping the sound quality is okay — we don’t talk very loudly while we play this game.)

    Kelly, that’s so stinkin’ sweet! You can really see the connection between you and your beautiful little girl. She has made such strides over the year. What a blessing to see her blossom!

    Geez…you left me hanging with a surprise of who was at the door! =) Sweet girl!


    • Funny, Jamie! 🙂 As you can tell from the incessant ringing, it was a child! A kid from down the street to play with Zippy. Surprise! 🙂
