Music Baby

My daughter adores music. She LOVES it! Today we've been listening to some of moms favorites, everything from Yael Naim, Ani Difranco, Joshua Radin to Jack Johnson and Colbie Caillat along with a little of Taylor Swift for good measure. A little variety LoL. My little peanut sings and dances to it right along with mom. Its absolutely a riot to watch.
Yesterday I shot some video of her watching the Little Mermaid. Now I promise I don't allow her to watch a lot of t.v. but there is something about the Disney movies that make me feel that its not REALLY t.v. Maybe its just that I love Disney movies and she gives me the perfect excuse to watch? She doesn't really pay attention to the movie but once the songs come on she either goes completely catatonic....

or she sings and dances right along! This isn't the best example of her dancing and singing but she gets so distracted by the camera that its the best I can record.

I apologize for not knowing how to turn my videos. :(

8 months!

I believe its time for an update. My computer crashed awhile back and I have yet to take the plunge and purchase a new one. One of these days I'll get around to it.
Sweet girl Avie is now 8 months old. That's right EIGHT MONTHS! I can't believe my baby girl is growing so fast, she is getting wiser, bigger and more beautiful every single day. Each day she's learning and than practicing newly acquired skills right in front of my eye's. One of my favorite parts of being her mama is physically watching her learn and explore. Just a few months ago she was newly in my arms peeking out through her squinty eye's at this world and today she's touching, holding, feeling, tasting and experiencing it. She is learning about things, places, words and making friends. Avie has no fear. Good girl!
As she has gotten older she has started to show her affections. She tries to share her toys with me by pulling them from her mouth and trying to put them in mine. She'll sit by me, rest her hands/head on me and climb into my lap just to be close. She gives big wet kisses, she'll reach when she wants to be held and after putting me through a cuddling freeze she's starting to cuddle again. I missed her snuggles. She loves reading stories (she fits right into my family!) and LOVES music. She dances and 'sings'. She mimics words now, her favorites are UP and ALL DONE! She doesn't quite understand what they mean yet but its so cute, I really need to record that. Who knew being a mom would be just this wonderful?
