A tear ran down my cheek...

as my daughter lay on her blanket, kicking like a mad woman, WATCHING GYMNASTICS ON TV.

Sniff, sniff.. I have never been so proud. Never in my life.

She watched for 35 minutes. She doesn't do ANYTHING for 35 minutes.. not even nap. But she watched gymnastics. Dreamed about her future. Memorized every routine. Pointed her toes. Squeezed her hiney. Chalked up. Took note at the cute leotards. Was in complete awe.

Wait. That was me doing all those things.

But SERIOUSLY. She totally digged the gymnastics. She needs to because when gymnastics season starts, she will be at the gym all the time. In her exersaucer.. sitting all cute as the girls and mommy practice. I can't wait!

AND someone is getting way too big.

Yep, she's in her exersaucer now. Sniff, sniff. My tiny baby is getting so big. Fun toys all around her.. things bouncing, a seat that turns all the way around, a steering wheek, lights.. and my daughter looks at the ceiling fan. Oh yes, looked at the fan like she'd never seen one before. =/

Time for yet another cute picture! My cutie-head baby with her big ol' blue eyes, sitting up on her elbows like a big girl, laying on her belly even though she hates it... so I grab my camera...

And she pukes. All over her face and blanket. Only a mother would look at this picture.. puke and all.. and totally fall in love all over again.

Nope...I'm not a mother (YET) and I'm still in love with that little cutie! You're right though...I don't exactly like the puke part just yet. I'm sure it will be no big deal someday. LOVE that she's already a gymnast in training! :)

Erin said...

Hee hee! Yep, puke and all, you love them. :)

I've said it before, but I think it bears repeating. She is gorgeous. Love those big blue eyes! And the fact that she's a future gymnast. ;)
