Watching:  Strangely enough, this video.  Brad and I laugh about it all the time.  Not only is about all things spooky {and our little girl has been known to be frightened of a loud sneeze}, but the song itself is hilariously odd.  It’s slow and soft, yet surprisingly upbeat all at once. “Spooky things doing a spooky dance….”  Kills me every time.

Singing:  Right now, every song she hears.  This little lady is a total music lover who chooses to watch music videos over television and can often be found dancing and singing while doing other activities.  New favourites added to her repertoire include Take Me Out to the Ball Game, Rock-a-Bye Baby, Spooky Spooky, and I’ll Love You Forever. 

Playing:  Dress-up. Constantly.  Poppop recently made her a wooden dress-up centre and she got all kinds of costumes and accessories for it for Christmas.  It’s not unusual for us to have a fairy, jester, or cat roaming around the house nowadays.  In fact, yesterday I took a pink poodle out for a walk around the neighbourhood.

Talking about: Everything. Non-stop. Our days are question after question after question.  “What’s that?”, “What’s it called?”, “Why for?”, “Who’s dat?”, “What his name is?”, “What dat sound is?”, “What’s Mama talking about?”

Reading:  Goodnight Goon by Michael Rex.  She and Papa picked it our at our latest library visit, and despite the fact that she can be ultra sensitive and the book is about a ‘cold gray tomb with a black lagoon, and two slimy claws, and a couple of jaws’ etc., we’ve read it every day before both nap time and bedtime since we checked it out.

Eating:  During our 3 weeks of vacation, I think she ate her weight in pistachios, cashews, and other fancy nuts we don’t normally keep around.  Now that we’re home and getting back into a routine, we’ve been making smoothies each morning (which has been great for getting a good amount of green veggies into our breakfasts) and she loves the whole process – gathering ingredients, making the smoothies, and slurping them up.

Danielle from Sometimes Sweet, a blog I’ve followed for a very long time now, does regular Currently posts which inspired my Gracen-modified ones. ☺
