She’s MY Sunshine

I don’t know which I love more – the song or the fact that she has a little burp and continues right on with her singing. ☺

It Doesn’t Get Any Better Than This

Bed head, a paper bag dress, and a kitchen dance party… I’m pretty sure it doesn’t get better than this.

Gracen Loves Letters

Never once have we attempted to teach this little lady her letters, yet somehow she knows almost all of them.  The way she hangs onto information blows me away.

Gracen Reads ‘Brown Bear’ {Again}

Because I just can’t help myself, here’s Miss G reading ‘Brown Bear, Brown Bear’ again, only this time through to the last page she almost always awkwardly skips ‘because it’s a tricky one’.  ☺

Gracen Reads ‘Brown Bear, Brown Bear’

Over the past month or so, Gracen’s been really into reading to us rather than having us read to her.  Many of the books she enjoys reading most are favourites that we’ve read again and again {and thus she’s memorized}, and others have a strong pattern and easy-to-follow picture cues, like this one.  It makes my heart very happy to see how much our little lady loves reading, and I hope that never changes.  Here she is reading the first half of ‘Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See?’

Impromptu Drum Circle

Household Object Drum CircleToday as I was organizing the mess of mason jars in our hallway catchall closet, my curious Miss G spied some old wine gift tubes in the bottom.  Naturally, she yanked them out and began drumming on them.

IMG 5665Before long, we’d yanked out all kinds of pots, containers, and bowls out and created an impromptu drum circle for the budding musician in our family.

IMG 5669Maracas, rhythm sticks, wooden spoons, a xylophone, and background music were added in along the way too.

IMG 5667Perhaps not the most neighbour-friendly activity if you live in a small apartment or have basement tenants below you (ours weren’t home), but great fun for a rainy day.

Here’s our little musician jamming out…

G-R-A-C-E-N

IMG 5675Gracen’s been interested in letters, their names, their sounds, and words that begin with them for quite some time now.  She’s also known how to verbally spell her name for just as long (longer actually), but the two had never really come together.  While she’s asked me to print her name quite a lot, she’s never attempted to ‘make’ her name using her foam bathtub letters, her letter magnets, or any of the other alphabet manipulatives we have around the house.  

Until tonight that is…

This evening she came to me as I was preparing dinner and said, “Mama, come see!”  I went into her room to find that she’d climbed up onto her shelf, retrieved her baby blocks, and was carefully arranging them in order to spell her name.

Get Down

Long ago, I told Brad I wouldn’t post this video online.  But after sifting through all of our Kuwait photos last night, I just couldn’t help myself (sorry babe!).  The cuteness is ridiculous and I’m hoping that makes up for me not keeping my word.  I mean just look at those chunky thighs and that little booty…  You simply can’t be upset after being witness to those.

Rudolph Lives On

She spent the holidays singing this song for nearly anyone who’d listen, and believe it or not, it’s still alive and kickin’ even now in February (with killer dance moves no less).
