WAHOO! LP’s (Little Pie, I forgot to explain my daughter’s nickname in my first post!) Christening went off without a hitch and she is feeling much better!  She was excellent in church, since she loves getting attention and everyone just happened to be looking right at her. HAHAHA

She was such a charmer at her party afterward too, except when someone prevented her from jumping in her bouncy chair. I think sharing may be an issue.  There were a couple of babies there under the age of 1 but one little girl in particular just started walked and hung on to LP’s bouncy chair while she was trying to jump.  OH NO ……… LP looked right at the little girl, tensed her arms and legs then let out an angry scream that scared the daylights out of the other little girl. The little girl started to cry, then crawled away and LP resumed her jumping.  What in the world am I going to do?!?!?! She is only 6 months old but has no interest in sharing, is it too early to worry about this?

While babysitting my nephew the other day, we were both playing with some great baby toys when  suddenly he heard the Mickey Mouse Club House theme song start to play on the TV in the background. He started weaving and bobbing his head, basically turning into a dancing machine. He loves when you dance with him or sing towards him. He will always dance back. Other than being adorable, I just read today that babies loving to dance is now a proven scientific fact.

According to a new study from the University of York in England, “Babies love a beat and dancing comes naturally to infants. The research showed babies respond to the rhythm and tempo of music, and find it more engaging than speech.” You can read the rest of the article here.  Have you noticed this is true?
