Lily asked to put on her swimsuit and ‘clickin’ shoes’. She knew that this song would show up…
…which reminded me that back in December she fell in love with it after seeing it on a 2009 countdown I had on. It is so bizarre to me how this TODDLER picks up on popular music that she likes all on her own. She saw the clip of the song and immediately asked to put on her swimsuit to reenact it. The red hat was her own personal touch.
What you can’t see is that behind the camera… Lily has forced me to squeeze my big pregnant belly into a swimsuit to do it with her. Jeff is on the couch watching a state of the union address and I wish I could have captured his face when he saw us…. it was something like, “How did I end up in this family?”
It makes me laugh that she puts an American Idol finish on every line. I’ve tried a million times since to capture her doing the dance and saying, “You shoulda put a ring on it.” and ‘Put your hands up!”… but as soon as the camera is out she lapses back into the same thing I’ve got 20 video clips of…. ‘All the single ladiiiiiiiiieeeeeeeeessssss.” So, I guess, the first one is the most original. Her heart still belongs to Taylor Swift… but Beyonce now holds a little piece too.
