It's the Little Things :: 1

I'm excited to join in on a link-up hosted by Ashley at Words About Waverly, a total fave of mine, and Jess at Sadie Sky Boutique today. It's all about the little things, the simple moments, the sweet memories of being a parent. One of the little phrases I remind myself of daily is 'don't wish away the present', and this link-up fits right in with that. Be present in the moments and appreciate the now. It is definitely something I strive to do everyday.

What I'd like to do, hopefully on a semi-regular/regular basis, is to post a short video of Aria that I've captured showing her sweet self enjoying the little things. Something sweet she is doing or something easily forgotten that I want to document. All ol' little thing. And, since Aria is doing something sweet, silly, and remember-worthy all day long it should be an easy task - in fact, I've already got three clips to edit.

This video I'm posting I've been trying to capture for days. You know how it goes, little one is doing something adorable and stops the moment you break out the camera. I finally got a decent video of her rocking out. Aria has a snoopy that plays music and dances, and when it gets turned on she goes to town bopping along. We have a blast doing it all day long. Check out her sweet moves. And, don't forget to check out Ashley's blog for more details about the link-up!

    1. I love that it made you smile! Baby dances are one of my all time favourite things, I've been looking forward to her bopping around since day 1 practically. 5am is always rough in my book, ick.

    1. Exactly! =) She does an even better dance while standing, she gets all into it and I love it so hard, but that one is elusive to capture. Even if her back is turned, she always knows when I'm trying to take a video of it, ha. Kids, geesh.

    1. I practically wear my camera around my neck at all times, but she still manages to do something super cute as soon as I put it down. Hopefully it is stuck in my memory though.

      Thanks for visiting!

    1. This is pretty much the highlight of my mom-ness. I've been looking forward to baby dance moves since the start! I sing and dance (like a fool) all day, and I'd love to have a partner in my antics really soon =) Basically, I'm a big goof and I love when my little goof joins in!

      I know, I just looove when the littles start moving to the music. And, now that she is walking more it is even cuter. It is totally my fave part of the day when we dance around =)

  12. Thank you for finding me from the link up! I just watched that video and oh my gosh, so sweet! Mason LOVES the "hot dog" song from Mickey Mouse and will dance away. When it's over he turns to me and looks all sad like "mom, again? please?" So cute!

    1. Baby dancing is just my all time favourite. Pretty much the reason I had a kid in the first place...kidding, sorta =)

      I have yet to see Micky Mouse Club (or whatever it's name really is), but I've heard about the 'hot dog' song repeatedly! Aria just isn't into the TV watching yet, which is a good thing I suppose...I've only turned it on twice to see if she has any interest.

  13. Being present is something I really have to remind myself to do. This Mama is always on the go – go – go. Always a million and one things to do! And I love your plan to video. I always tell myself (after the fact) that I should have taken video. Your video is just precious!! So sweet!
