DSCN1123My friend T took this photo of us at the farmer's market last weekend. Amelia slept through most of it, and then woke up all sassy right before we left. Can you believe she will be 8 months old on Sunday? Pretty soon I will be planning her 1st birthday party!

She is super curious and standing up by herself for over a minute. I'm teaching her patty cakes, and trying to get her to say DaDa. Sometimes she will rawr at me like a baby dinosaur. She learned that from watching Daniel Tiger's Neighborhood, which is a PBS cartoon based on Mister Rogers' Neighborhood. She's the funniest baby, and has the cutest giggle.

What were your favorite tv shows growing up?

Amelia mostly watches My Little Pony Friendship is magic. I'm pretty sure she will be the friendliest kid around, that will be able to dance you into the ground (she gets that from her dad).

I enjoyed watching Sailor Moon, Jem and the Holograms, and Kids Incorporated when I was a kiddo.


  1. She looks so unamused in that picture, and I love it. I think as a kid I mostly watched Sailor Moon + Powerpuff Girls for kids' shows, and Buffy + horror movies. That's probably why I'm not scared by much of anything now. I had strange taste as a child. NO WAIT. Non-cartoon kids' shows I watched were Clarissa, Salute Your Shorts, and Hey Dude, plus things on ABC's TGIF--mostly Boy Meets World.

    What a fun trip down memory lane!

  2. I used to watch all of those shows oh and Full House!

  3. She's so adorable, and SO ARE YOU!!! Oh man, I loved (and honestly, still think these rock): Little Bear, Franklin (the turtle!), Blue's Clues, some Sesame Street, Scooby-Doo, a soap opera XD as my mom watched daily and I watched with her, The Big Red Couch, Lamb Chop, Full House... Then as a teenager, I watched even more and as an adult, I watch even. more. because I love animated series'. ^_^

  4. Waitttt. The Big Comfy Couch, haha! IT WAS RED THOUGH. I think. ALSO! Rugrats, Hey, Arnold, Doug and Bananas in Pajamas! OH and The Magic School Bus, Barney, Arthur and moreeee!

  5. Aww I bet it's the cutest thing to hear her rawr!

    Ha ha I just painted my nails this sparkley magenta and it totally reminds me of Jem! I loved the original My Little Pony, which of course I now watch the new show. I watched Rainbow Bright, She-ra, and Thundercats too.

    It's funny I hated Sailormoon when it came out, but a few years later I really got into anime and I totally got into Sailormoon. Have you watched the live action version? It's awesome!! It still might be on youtube. I also heard they are remaking the cartoon, I can't wait!!

  6. It was funny when she came up to me and rawred lol the little boy in the show kept doing it so I guess she thought she should too! Lol

    I watched all those shows too! I haven't watched the live version of Sailor Moon yet, but I need to. I can't wait for the new version to come out! I am so excited!

  7. We used to watch the big comfy couch too! And I love the magic school bus! I want to be ms. Frizzle when I grow up! ;)
