White Girls Can't Dance

OK, we are having so much fun with Grammy here! This is the best week ever. Moana is sooo happy with all this extra attention. I don't think I've ever heard her laugh so much... and since we're on the go-go-go schedule all the time this week, she's been sleeping like a log. Think daily '3 hour nap' to get my gist.

It's such a win-win-win for everybody having Grammy here. I get to train a ton, and when I come home I find that the laundry was magically done and the kitchen is always clean. So yay for me! And Grammy gets to play with Moana and take tons of pictures/video while hanging out in warm Hawaii instead of cold Ohio... the whole time gushing about how cute/sweet/darling/delightful/precious my daughter is. :) And of course Moana has just never had such positive interaction as she's getting right now. Of course we can't leave out Scott- he gets to go to work early every morning this week b/c he doesn't have to wait for me to get home from training. Lucky guy, eh? ;)

I think the only negative will be when Grammy leaves next week. Not sure how Moana and I are going to handle that. But we're not thinking about that right now... happy thoughts... happy thoughts...

Anyway, the other day we took M to the beach. It was crazy warm here earlier this week. And does water get any more clear than that?? It's a tough life.

Yesterday we hit the mall- mostly so I could get my haircut while mom watched Moana play in the kids play area there. But of course we did a little shopping too. We love The Children's Place. Cute cute cute clothes and reasonable prices too. And they're always playing jammin' music in there. Moana likes to dance while she shops. I wonder where she gets that?

Anyway, Moana is chatting up a storm with Grammy. Her vocabulary has exploded this week, but that's another post... one that I'll write of I get through this big training week alive. :)

She is so cute! I love how her dancing comes from her hips. Zach leads with his head. Poor kid. And it seems like her hair is growing so quickly. Amazing.

And I love the Children's Place stuff for girls, but their boys stuff sucks.

Your daughter is very cute! I was wondering if you have any recommendations on the level of training one can keep doing when trying to get pregnant?

I love when the grandparents come to visit. I hate living so far away because the help is always nice. I hope you have a wonderful weekend!

Any chance you could convince your mamma to move to Hawaii? I think you have a huge list of pro's in your favor!
Glad you're enjoying your week - love Moana dancing for the shoes ;)

That was adorable!

Clare said...

Regina said...

How cute! I miss that age. I swear every time you post something she has gotten bigger. Going for the shoes, that is a girl after my heart!

Btw, it isn't just white girls that can't dance ;)
