Elmo's Mama!

While I was at work this weekend, Nate was able to shoot this cute little video of Sophia being "Elmo's Mommy!" It is amazing at only 18 months she is starting to remember and emulate our routine with her and that she can understand to do it with her baby Elmo. When I push Sophia in her umbrella stroller, I tip her back (as you will see) and we go "Weeeeeee!" When I am trying to get her out of her stroller, I say, "Up Sophia" (as you will see). When I am putting her down at night, I rock her in the glider for a few minutes, hold her up on my shoulder (as you will see), we sing (sometimes we say, Rocky, Rocky, Rocky, Sophia goes Rocky), and then I tell her night-night (as you will see). Can you believe she knew enough to do the whole routine with Elmo without anyone watching or prompting her!!

Nate also said she was putting the baby Elmo on the potty and in the exersaucer. She also tried to buckle Elmo into his stroller!!! The baby mind never ceases to amaze me!!

Hope you enjoy!! This video melted my heart and brought tears to my eyes!!
