So she thinks she can dance

Em has found her inner beat. And all she wants to do is dance. She hears a song, a jingle, a tune from me and the rhythm just takes over. She can't help but do it, and I can't help but smile.

I was able to capture her sweet moves today on video -- a rarity since each time she sees me holding the camera she usually stops what's she's doing to try to grab it from me.


(The video she's rocking out to is REM's appearance on Sesame Street singing a Muppet-ified version of "Shiny Happy People".)

As I get ready to leave tomorrow for Vegas, I'll keep her little choreography top of mind.

"Life is like dancing. If we have a big floor, many people will dance. Some will get angry when the rhythm changes. But life is changing all the time." - Don Miguel Ruiz

  2. So cute! Rex loves to bop around just like that too- it's really funny when he starts shaking his head around and trying to snap too. These kids just crack me up!
