Oh hey, we have a blog. Sorry about that few week lapse. Things have been crazy busy lately and, well, nothing you haven't heard before. To make up for the lost time, I'm going to give you a taste of some pretty sweet dance moves courtesy of our little mover and shaker, Madelyn. She's always loved dancing when music is on but lately has started this new little dance where she moves her hips back and forth. The other thing she does now that's funny is stares at her feet while she's dancing sometimes. She usually runs around and climbs and tumbles all over non-stop, but when she starts dancing, she slows down, and walks around staring at her feet. Which, honestly, is pretty much how I dance so it's probably my fault.
Our kids have always liked latin music for some reason. I guess it's just fun music to run around and dance to. So, if you have your volume on, you'll be treated to some fun latin music along with the dance moves. This is another one of those things where she's been doing this a ton but only for a few seconds at a time so we never get it on video. Capturing it on film is like getting video of the Sasquatch or Loch Ness Monster or a Blockbuster location that's not going out of business*. Here's the video. The new dance starts around the 30 second mark but the feet-staring kicks the whole thing off...
As a bonus, here are two of my favorite pictures of Madelyn over the last couple weeks. They were both taken with my phone while she was playing peek-a-boo behind the curtains...
*If the kids read this blog in 10 years, that joke will make no sense since Blockbuster probably won't exist at all. I might as well start making jokes about VHS and cassette tapes. Or just making things up altogether and telling them they really did exist in a time before they can remember. "No, I swear, we used to have moving sidewalks that took us everywhere. We never walked. Then some kid got his shoelace caught in it and messed it up for everybody. And that's why you always tie your shoes!" Every made up relic would, of course, have a moral to the story. I wouldn't just flat out lie for lying's sake. This is the longest footnote ever. I should have just written another post.
If I didn't know better...I would say that Maddie's Uncle Brandon has been showing her some "moves!" Her dancing just looks like his style!
Tell me that was from that Ricky Martin concert in the background ...
Yep, that's exactly what it is, John. Between that and The Gipsy Kings, the kids could dance all day.
And Paula, I was at a wedding last night with Brandon and, you're dead on about his dancing :)
Your kids will be on America's Next Dance Crew. They are AWESOME!!
