Elbow, Elbow, Wrist, Wrist, Wrist

For the past week or so every time Mira has bottle she stretches her arm out and mesmerizes herself by waggling her hand back and forth. At first I thought Mira was just developing a deeper understanding that this thing at the end of her arm was hers and could be controlled at will. Last night I realized that something else is going on; she is practicing her parade wave for the Rose Parade.

I don't have the heart to tell her that this is the one year we aren't going to LA for the new year. Maybe next year, kid.

  1. Hey! I went to college at Caltech in Pasadena. We swore every year we would go to the Rose Parade but were always too hung over. We finally went my senior year and brought home thousands of roses that had fallen off floats.

  3. One is never too young to practice One's Royal wave.

  4. Little elf has had this thing of winding her around her finger from an early age. But no regal waves.
