A Cheerleader in the Making

I was never a cheerleader. However, I spent five of my six years teaching as a cheerleading coach. I enjoyed every minute of it. I had awesome, hardworking girls on my team, and we won two state championships.

Busybody Blair does the funniest things with her arms and legs. Sometimes I snap a picture and wonder if she is practicing her cheer motions! She has this thing about raising her left arm up by her head. She does both, but Brad teases that he thinks she might be left handed like me. I think she has more practice with that one, because I usually hold her with her left arm out and right arm against me, so I'm going to try to switch her up some!

She practices her jumps...




her motions...




a darn good punch motion!


and her best smile, of course!

You better buy that baby a Hornet uniform & she can come cheer with the 1st & 2nd grade Pee Wees this fall!

She's too cute!

Adorable. Blair is so precious. She makes me excited to be having a girl!Btw I have heard that I may possibly be inheriting some type of newborn sleeper from you. Apparently it was Mary Charles' and when you are done with it she and Mrs. Hulda were going to see if they could pass it on to me. Have you heard this?

Are you loving your camera? :) It's great when the camera is already so smart, and - of course - when you have such a perfect object to photograph! :)

Looks like Blair's hair is coming in! She is so darling... keep those pictures coming!
