Gymboree + Ice Cream = One Very Fun Day!

I'm so excited, I finally figured out how to take video clips with my digital camera!!! So I know what you're camera...which would make sense, but nope, this is my trusty Canon PowerShot that I've had since December, 2005, so don't laugh, okay?!? Problem is I misplaced the instruction booklet that came with the camera and never took the time to look up how to do it online. Anyhow, even better, I figured out hot to rotate video clips portrait to landscape AND I figured out how to upload them to blogger, so I'm super excited. Technology and I are not always the best of friends, but in this case, we're playing nice :)

So for my video debut, here's Grace at yesterday's Gymboree class. There was a new little girl in class and the teacher asked Grace to show her how to go through the tunnel, and (warning: mama brag alert) she went right through! Such a good student already - he, he, he!!!

And who says all fun and no work - here's Grace and some of her classmates pushing the air log. Such hard work, don't you think?! When she started Level 3 (10-16mo.) at just under 10 months, she couldn't physically do this activity, then she wasn't interested, then she wanted to do it but couldn't keep up, and now she can do it all by herself and gets frustrated with anyone slowing her down!

After class Grace and I went for a little frozen treat to TCBY. Grace definitely has a sweet tooth, just like her mama. She kept turning on the charm for some older ladies that were there and they just loved it!! Good thing so no one would pay attention to the crazy mama filming her kiddo eat ice cream ;)

I don't know if this will make sense to anyone else except me, but just this past week I noticed that Grace's laugh is turning into a little girl's laugh versus a baby's laugh. She also knows how to laugh to be funny in addition to when she's really tickled about something. It's bittersweet for me. I love seeing every new stage, but I miss my little itty bitty pumpkin baby!!! I can't believe she's almost 15 mo. already - time flies when you're having fun!!!

These mini-videos are soooo neat !!!!
By the way, enjoy every second of her growing up: kids really do grow up fast. It is precious that you are recording all these simple, everyday things. Those will be treasured memories, for you and for her !
Love, Mom/Noonie

Oh those were really fun to watch! I loved hearing your voice, you sound just like my cousin and aunt who used to live in your sate. I'm gonna have to figure out how to post videos too, we also have a Power Shot.

Mom - Yes! I need to burn them to dvd and keep with her scrapbooks :)

Angel - That good 'ole southern drawl, huh? he, he, he. Yes! definitely add videos - it'll be so much fun ;)

Jenn - Thanks for the sweet comments :) Since having Grace my clothing obsession has been transfered to a certain little wee one, luck when she's a bit older she'll rebel and become a tomboy!
