Dancing is Contagious

The baby and I had a great day. We made juice and oatmeal for breakfast. We had company late morning. Caught up on happenings.

We put some cd's in and did a little dancing until Brinley was completely worn out (thank God she got worn out because I beat her to Done-in-ville by 5 minutes.

She took a nap, I wrapped some gifts.

We played this afternoon and watched Mickey Mouse and the gang help Goofy find a shoe.

Then I changed the channel to Ellen Degeneres. It was probably a quarter of the way through the show.  Just as they cut to commercial they played a small (20 seconds tops) snippet of Matt Damen and two other people doing the Nay Nay dance.

Brinley immediately begin dancing and that quick, it's done. She isn't using a lot of words but she does get herself understood. She wanted to do the Nay Nay dance. I rewound it. We danced the 20 seconds. We did it again, and again, and again and again. Fourteen times! (by the way, Matt Damen can move!)

We had to repeat the whole thing later in the show and that clip was a bit longer. Didn't matter. We still had to do it over and over.

Brinley has a couple of phrases in her repertoire, She can say, "I did it!" "Going bye-bye" "The baby!" (which she says with arms open to be picked up or hand open to eat whatever you are relishing). She says, "I love you!" "Bye" "Night" and pats her thigh to call the dog, who she calls "puppy" instead of Rex.

By the end of the show, she had added, "Watch me!" to her list of phrases, with arms and legs flying.

"Can you please rewind the show one more time." still sounds like "Aaaaaahhhhhhnnnnnnkkkkk!"
but she really, really means it.
