The Serious Gymnast



Look at the concentration. The determination. Or is that more of a look like she's not about to accept the hand Mommy's going to shove at her in a heart-skipping moment to keep her from falling?

Bella has graduated from Little Gym. There was a VERY quick ceremony where Miss Robin gave each child a medal. Quick because once the first kid got one, the whining, screeching and frantic looks of possibly being forgotten began. Totally cute!

Gym class did wonders for Bella not only socially, but advanced her monkey skills as well. I highly recommend anyone who has a gym for babies in their area to enroll their child. We've decided to give her (okay, me) a break over the next 2 months until she starts preschool. Don't worry, she'll still see her main squeeze, Mitchell, whenever possible.

Hope everyone is having a wonderful week! Just 17 days till my baby girl turns 2 years old! I can hardly believe it! She's been singing "Happy Birthday" alot. She takes huge steps (symbolic?) and sings "Happy Birday to youuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu" over and over...and over...

I love my life. I love my family and my friends. I am truly blessed.

Bella looks like such a sweet girl. You can still see the little baby fat on her arms! Enjoy her while she's little...it goes by so fast!

Awww, how adorable is that?! And it's really neat that she was able to be in a class like that. I've thought about getting my son in a swimming class, but I just don't have the time! Oh well. :-)

It's okay, Sweetie said...

Hello. I'm here from Odd Mix. My daughter is enrolled in Little Gym too! And I see the improvements!!! (yours is adorable by the way). I've been out of town and missed the last two classes. I hope we didn't miss her graduation. I'm off to call them now to find out!

Thanks for visiting, Tallulah and IOS! Yes, Bella IS very sweet. And smart, funny, entertaining and just enough of a mischievous side to keep us on our toes :)

'Bella is one seriously cute gymnast. How goes the growing another one?

I have officially given Blogger a pink slip. I have imported my entire site to WordPress, comments and all. I will be posting there from now on. It was easy, it was clean, it was free, and best of all... it WORKS!!!!

I love the fact that you love your life and that you love your family.

I feel the same way about my family.

So cool.

I've been pretty annoyed with blogger lately, thanks for the info Odd Mix!

Thank YOU, Ben. I never imagined I would be so blessed to have the life I have now. It was a rather long road getting here.

It's okay, Sweetie said...

Hey thanks for visiting today. I wanted you to know I'm considering having my daughter's 4th bday party at Little Gym next month!

I've known a few kids to have their party at LG. They do a pretty good package, from what I hear. Not to mention the kids get to work off all that cake and punch! :)

She is an absolute doll, and a little Nadia Comeneci in the making. I LOVE gymnastics too!

Awwwww - if she keeps at it, maybe she will make it into the 2010 Olympics in my old town of VANCOUVER!! She is pretty sweet!
