Trying to clean your room with a mobile 13 month old is ridiculous.

At the moment I am eagerly awaiting the arrival of strangers who are going to clean out my dryer vent, glories of home ownership I suppose. Is this something people have done regularly? I don’t remember ever knowing of anyone who’s had it done. I need my dryer back, I would have never made it as a pioneer.

So this baby, she likes to dance, nay LOVES to dance. She even has a favorite song, “Lonely Boy” by The Black Keys. We have a Pandora station all set up for her. The crazier the guitar? The happier the baby.

This is another one of those things that I’m fairly certain only my immediate family and my husband are interested in, but in case you feel the need to watch a chubby little baby in a rocketship diaper dance? Here’s the video for you. (Don’t miss the shimmy double seated pirouette at 00:25)


  1. My 4-year-old loves “rockin’ songs,” too. He and Vivi should start a band. His favorite song is “Tom Sawyer” by Rush. To which I say: Ew.

    @Nichole, Addie calls it ‘rock star’ music, always has.

    @Nichole, Nichole, I think your four year old has excellent taste in music. But then, I’m old. 🙂

    That crease on the back side of her left thigh: I. DIE.

    @Chrysta, That’s very specific! (But yes, one is far more substantial that the other.)

    @Casey, It’s just that there it was every time she did a 360, flashing at me like a neon sign reading, “CUTE CHUBBY BABY!!!”

  4. Just when I think I can’t love her any more than I do already! Thanks for the Wednesday “pick-me-up!”

    @Alisa, Just wait until you see her suck water up off the table rather than drink it out of a cup like a proper baby.

  5. That was adorable!!

  6. OMG!!! So cute!

  7. the spins, I cant even handle it.

    Casey Reply:

    @Lindsay, The spins are kind of new.

    I think your Vivi is one of the cutest babies out there! The video is so sweet – she’s pretty talented. 🙂

    @Melissa Lynn Benham, *whispers* (I agree!)

  9. So cute, that girl!!

  10. Ha love the pirouettes. They’re fantastic. My 5 year old loves Adele and we listen to 21 all the time so now Bella likes to try and sing a long too especially to Rumour Has It!

  11. So cute! I want one.

    Vivi has great taste in music.

  13. That’s got to be the cutest way to buff your floors ever!

  14. This baby… I have no words. She’s absolute perfection.

  15. Oh holy goodness, the cute!

  16. Melissa says:

    That arm swing maneuver looks familiar!! Wonder where she gets that?!

  17. I am so happy right now. What a doll.

  18. I heard this song in the car and I had to come home and watch Vivi dance again. You made my night!
