Small things

With children it is all about the small things! Today during church I looked through the tiny peephole in the nursery door to check on Liza and she was twirling, just twirling all by herself. I could hear the faint music and the words "Clean up, clean up" being sung and there my sweet daughter was twirling and her hands in the air. Eliza might be a dancer and if she is then I will know that her love of music and movement started at a young age. Sometimes while in the car she will do her whining "uhh uhh" just so that I will turn the music up. Once it is loud enough she will put her hands in the air and wave them back and forth.

She is also way into "The Itsy Bitsy Spider." On our way out to the lake yesterday she must have been bored because as soon as we started singing and doing the movements there was no stopping. How adorable is it to see your almost 2 year old trying to touch her fingers together just right so the spider can go up the spout, then make her hands twinkle like the rain and then up in a big circle so the sun can come out, all just to meet back together so the spider can go up the spout again.

Today when we got home from church it was all about the shoes for Eliza. Her little flip flops came off and daddy's clunky church shoes went on. She was quite funny lookin but she LOVED it and kept saying "Daddy shoe, daddy shoe" (always with a little pause in between both words.)

It's the little moments that we forget but that make being a parent all worth it!
