a star is born…and she goes by turtle

i knew it. i knew when my turtle started walking at nine months she was going to be an absolute star. she may not talk, but girlfriend can move.

(she can say "eye" and then poke you in your eye…so there's that.)

you may remember when i posted about how kaye was a terrible gymnast and i was the mom who had to remove her child from the premises because of the raging tantrum being thrown…i may be prematurely tooting my horn, but…

*toot toot* 
my gal is a star. (and i'm no longer the mom wrestling her child and sweating/cursing trying to get her to jump on the freaking trampoline. it's a trampoline for god's sake…jump on it. lay on it. fall off it. do anything but cry.)

i mean…just check her out. she can totally hang from the bar for five seconds. no. big. deal.
pointed toes? you bet. it's all about presentation and the details.
and crawl through a tunnel…she's got that nailed to the wall too.
a trampoline obstacle? ain't no thang. girlfriend was born to jump. maybe she'll even be one of those olympic trampoline jumpers?
and if it's a part of the synchronized team? well…i don't think you can get much better than that.
but i do believe the very best part was seeing that she can actually sit still and listen to directions. i didn't even have to physically restrain her this week. it darn near brought a sweet tear to my eye.
or maybe the best part was when she immediately fell asleep for the hour long car ride home.

45 minutes of intense gymnastics training will wipe you out. i know this because i'm exhausted.
turtle - you and i are going to make a fantastic team. you bring the sassy attitude to your floor routine and i'll be the stage mom from hell. we've got this covered.

  1. This is SO SO sweet!!! Go Turtle, go! You just sealed the deal that I need to get Autumn in gymnastics asap!

  2. Glad to hear class went better this time around! I wish we had something like that nearby to exhaust Xavier! Maybe I would be a happier person! lol! I did just pick up one of the bounce and slide things for outside. The weather needs to warm up and stay clear soon!

  3. Ha!! I think I may end up more of a cheer/dance stage mom, but maybe we can team up for a rural reality tv show.

  4. Yay! Looks like she's having a great time now :))

  5. Awww! She looks like she enjoyed it! :)

  6. Super cute! BTW my nephew's only words for the first two years or so of his life were "French Fry". He is 19 now and is a super genius (straight A's in his freshman year of engineering school at a prestigious University)

  7. In the pictures where she's pointing her toes - the kids in the background are looking at her like she's a rockstar! She's going to have a fan club soon!

  8. Ahh this is so adorable! Girlfriend has got the pointed toes down!

  9. she sounds like she's a personality match for prince george... i'm just saying.

  10. Pointed toes and all! The nap after is the best!

  11. The pointed toes! AHH so cute!

  12. Gah, she is so adorable! You go girlfriend!

  13. This so too cute! She looks like she is having so much fun!!!

  14. It is incredible to see pics of this BABY doing gymnastics. You're right, she IS a star!

  15. Ok I love this all, but the best of the best is the fact that your kid can hang from a bar. How does she do that? I can't even do that. Mind officially blown. I need to meet this little olympics protege stat.

  16. Love this! Look at the star in action! Too cute!!


  17. Go Turtle! She's so cute and doing so well!
