Lil wanted to go outside and “chalk” the other day. I don’t like to touch the chalk unless I have to, but decided to try and sort of recreate an activity I say on Pinterest. I made a few squares and wrote letters in them and had her jump on the letters. She mentioned a word starting with a letter so I changed up what I was doing. I started saying a word and having her jump on the letter it starts with. She did great so I added the rest of the alphabet and she continued to do amazing. I was so proud.
I don’t know what else to call it, but backward airplane seems to sort of work. Anyway Lil loves to stand in my hands and then once she grabs my feet I lift her up and once up in the air she lets go of my feet and sort of growls. This is her new favorite thing and she wants to do it all. the. time.
Last week she wanted me to take a picture of her doing this little trick. It was very hard to get it, but I decided to try and get a video while I was at it. My phone was laying on my belly since I didn’t have any extra hands to hold the phone. I took like 6 videos and only two were sort of ok and I decided to only share this one.
I’m working on a post about this last minute trip to California we took two weeks ago. Until that is done here’s a quick video of Lily, myself and Olivia (Lil’s cousin).
In February (I know, I’m so behind) Lily had her last ballet classes from her second attempt at dance class. She loved it so much. It was just 3 other girls, two were sisters and the third was the daughter of the teacher. Lily really worked at listening and participating, she’s a little uncoordinated (my fault I’m sure), but she was getting there. I was never able to leave the room though. I tried a few times and it resulted in major meltdowns. Oh well. I’ll try again next time.
I love how Lily does her ‘rockstar walk’, it cracks me up.
These next pictures are from the last class. They call it a recital, but really they just have the normal class and all the parents watch. The girls do a little dance they have been practicing at the end, but that lasted all of 2 minutes.
Lily loves to dance at the zoo, well she loves to dance everywhere, but at this spot at the zoo is one of her favorites.
