There is only one almost fool-proof way to calm Annie down when she’s upset – play her music. If there is music on in our house, she is happy as can be.
Now, combine music with TV? You know, that big box with moving shiny things? Annie is rapt with delight.
It shouldn’t surprise anyone that Glee is a Very Big Deal in our household. Annabel sits still for an HOUR and watches the WHOLE SHOW.
Although, to be honest, she doesn’t exactly stay still for long.
Watching her watch Glee is my favorite thing. What’s funnier than a baby squealing and dancing? Especially when the Puck character comes on the screen. Annie is a sucker for a bad boy.
Still pictures only tell part of the story. To get the full Annie dancing experience, you have to watch the clip below. It took all my concentration to not laugh and distract her.
seriously my most favorite video of her ever.
Now you understand why I have ten episodes of Glee saved on my DVR.
Kate @ UpsideBackwards says:
She is so gorgeous! Not surprising, given that she comes from such a musical family. I can’t wait to see her first concerts!
Love it !!! The girls’ got some moves. I just had to watch it a few
times. She is such a cutie pie.
She is one very happy baby. Better start looking for an agent.
She is adorable! I’m envious of her sweet moves!
Seriously….could she be any cute?

It’s a good thing you live on the West Coast, because I seriously think you have a star living in your house!
Chantelle @ photo mommy says:
That is ugh.maz.ing.
I absolutely love this!!!!! She is priceless!!!
Wonderful moves Annie. I loooove glee too.
Love her! She’s so cute! Gonna have to sign her up for some mommy and me music classes in your area! They are so great, my daughter loved/loves that kind of thing!
OMG – THAT MADE MY DAY!!!! I had to smile watching how “in the zone” she was. I have NO idea how you NOT crack up!! I was so hoping you taped her b/c you’re right…pictures DON’T DO IT JUSTICE!!!
I just love how both of your girls love tv. I remember watching Maddie watch tv. She would get so into it. Both of your daughter are so much alike! It must bring you a lot of joy but at times, is probably a little bitter/sweet as well. I can just picture Maddie running around the room dancing with Annie too.
Thanks for sharing the video. Just like Maddie, Ms. Annie is one of a kind!! She cracks me up!!! How lucky I am you share her with us!!
Lots of Love & Warm Hugs,
oh my lord that video is priceless! Totally made my day. What a sweet little thing she is!
I’m have just been cuted right into a coma.
We are also hardcore gleeks… all the soundtracks are in the car and the kids know every word.
annie, brittney, and mike chang could have a dance battle on the show! annie could take them down!
Mary Ann says:
Annies got some good moves there. I love the part when she gets up on her knees – sooooooooo cute! Thanks for sharing.

Cutest thing ever..will we be seeing her on Dancing with the Stars?
You know, they are auditioning for a role on Glee season 3… I totally think Annie should audition!! LOL totally adorable! And one of my fav show’s as well.
dance off between annie and brittney…annie wins hands down!
i think thats my favorite video of Annie too. so cute!
This is so adorable I can hardly stand it.
OMG. This? This video? PRICELESS!!!
AMAZING! I love how she goes from the back and forth rocking to the bouncing up and down effortlessly. Totally my favorite Annie video too.
XOXO from GA,
Oh MY Goodness! That made my morning. You really could put that on during a Friday with some words like, “I need to move NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW” I love watching her need for dance escalate – beyond adorable! Also, she must watch some Jersey Shore too b/c she had the fist pump down!
I’m not sure how you can handle that level of cuteness on a daily basis! This video reminds me of the one you have of Maddie with the musical guitar. She could get down just like her sister!
My 3 1/2 year old loves Glee!! I have seriously withheld Glee as a punishment! He wasn’t listening, so I told him that instead of dancing during the song, he just had to sit on the couch and watch it, while being completely still. He cried the whole time as I tried not to laugh. :o)
I’ve never seen Glee, but I’m pretty sure Annie needs to have a guest role on it – I’d be sending that video to the producers!! So cute!
Hilarious!! Girl’s got some moves…
Once she is upright, there will be no stopping her! She is a DANCER! You should post that on YouTube.
OMG, LOL and all that! That was the CUTEST! Take that, Baby Einstein!
Wow, she’s got some serious moves!!! I can’t believe you were able to get through that recording without giggling.
Katie B says:
Such a cute video!
Yay! This made me gleeful too! Thank you for the pick-me-up this morning. I was feeling very “meh” until just now.
Love this! Though I expect nothing less from a child who dressed as Sue Sylvester for Halloween! LOL
Others mentioned a guest role on Glee–she could play the role of Quinn’s baby in a few months! (They always age enhance anyway) Annie could dance while Quinn, Puck and Idina Menzel sing!
Omigod, so adorable. I can’t take it.
Looks like she also got the music gene! My favorite video of Maddie is when you were trying to get her to say “wow” and she just started dancing to her own beat. Girl had some moves…and it looks like little sister has some of her own!
That was so cool!
She is snappy, liquid cute.
That is how I watch Glee too! My favorite show. Now I will have the thought of Annie dancing when I watch it every week. I can’t wait to see her video each week..My 15 year old daughter and I love them, sometime we watch them over and over…. just darling!
Oh.My.Goodness! That video is beyond adorable. I love it when she got on all fours rocking herself! She’s got the music in her and just has to rock it out! Too cute!
She’s got great rhythm!
We love Glee here, too. We are total Gleeks! It is the ONE show in our house that everyone form the baby, to my teens, to my husband will sit down to watch, which is why we, too, have our DVR crammed with Glee.
What a cute little Gleek Annie is!
The cutest dancing video ever.
hehe SO cute!
my kids love Glee too, it’s fun to watch them dance to it.
Trisha Vargas says:
Bust it Annie!! You go girl!
(((HUGS))) from Florida
Cathy Skelton says:
Show her the Fantasias! And if you can find them, the Disney Silly Symphonies! I bet she would be enthralled, my 2 boys always were.
OMG cutest video EVER!!! She’s too funny with her dance moves.
Baby dance party!!! Isabel is a non stop dance machine too!
Libby is sitting on my lap dancing with Annie. I love this!
Love it! We love Glee, too. This week my Sunshine was transfixed by Don’t Cry For Me Argentina. Must. Download.
We love Annabelle and We love Glee! The perfect combination, although after every video ‘we’ want to watch the Amazing Annabelle again and again. (still our favorite!)
Laurie SL says:
That is the cutest video EVER!!!
That’s the cutest thing I’ve ever seen. You’ve got a dancer on your hands!!
That video paired with Mike’s column made my day, no, make that my MONTH. And it’s only the 2nd. I knew I liked December. Thanks very much to the two of you.
Amy K says:
It was all so cute, but the lunges at the end just about did me in.
That is the cutest video!
Rumour Miller says:
Oh my god, she’s SOOOO cute!
that was SO funny! I love her!
One of my favorite, delightful posts – evah! Srsly – how could Glee be any better? Add Annie! : )
OMG! That is SO FREAKING CUTE!!!!!!
I’m pretty sure she dances like a white girl. You live in L.A. right? You should probably sign her up for some baby dance class…..or just call what she does interpretative art
Kristi F says:
That is so incredibly funny! How wonderful that she loves music!
That was great. Definitely my favorite video of her too.
My baby, who is 18 months old now, is hilarious when she dances. It only gets better when they start to walk. She spins around in circles, she does the robot, she gets down low. And I wonder? How did she learn to do that??? I’m a terrible dancer!!!
Can’t wait to see more dancing videos of Annie!
i seriously thought annie was going to start break dancing!! i know, i know, not exactly the right song for it. but, whatEVER, right? annie could totally get away with it!
thanks again for sharing!! i miss this age so much!!
Angie M. says:
that was hilarious & cute at the same time. love it!
Oh, my goodness…that just made my morning. I watch (or try to watch) Glee 4 times a day just to get the “gist” of the story. I keep getting interrupted and have to start over. So, my babies are getting used to the singing and dancing!
Annie has awesome moves and killer taste in TV. And I bet she could totally give Santana a run for her money over Puck.
Jenni Williams says:
SQUEE! That just gave me happy tears.
OMG I love her!!! That was the cutest video ever!!
Angie [A Whole Lot of Nothing] says:
*PASSES OUT* from the cute.
Aww that is so funny, the first time my brother ever danced he was about 6 months old and my mum thought he was having a fit he was wiggling his arse so much!
Is it just me or is her fists in the air exactly like Maddie?
Those two are more similar than they will ever know.
Super cute!! Love the moves!
Loved it!! She is so stinking cute. My little one is just like Annie could be so upset one minute and you start playing music and she is happy and dancing instantly!!
Annie is a Rock Star in the making! She should audition for a walk on on Glee.
Jayne @ Mum's the Word says:
Does Annie like the Imagination Movers? Seems like something she’d LOVE! My little gorl was obsessed with the Movers, we even have the CD’s and even now, she still gets her wiggle on if we play their music.
Go, Annie! Go!
She’s a natural! Too cute …
She is so cute!
My 18-month-old LOVES Glee too. We have several videos of her twirling to all the music. It’s such a fun show!
Annie rocks! Literally. Too adorable for words.
the video is adorable and the fact that she watches amazing!
Joanna @ Baby Gator's Den says:
OMG, she is precious! I love the dance moves!! My son has similar moves, especially the push up move, here he is dancing: http://babygatorsden.com/2010/11/08/baby-like-a-g6/
Officially my favorite video.
OMG Can I have her? She is soo stinking cute, i just wanna love on her!
Wow-she totally is into this! I wonder what kind of hobbies she will work this into-singing, dancing, instrument playing? She clearly FEEEEELS the music! Awesome!
Adara Durgin says:
I can not get over this video!!!!!!!!!!! So cute!!!!!!
hahahaha how awesomely cute, she almost has the turned mastered!
THAT was too adorable! Watching Annie SO makes me miss having little ones (mine are 18 & 21). She is just beautiful.
Dee Dee says:
That is hilarious!
I’ve never watched Glee but this has to be one of my favorite posts you’ve made. Pictures and video. I especially love the second photo.
Mom said I was the same way for Fraggle Rock. Forget Sesame Street, I loved Fraggle Rock! In fact I was flicking channels yesterday and saw a rerun and sat for 10 minutes to watch, lol.
Annie is too cute, I don’t know how you held it together for that long, I’d have been cracking up. You need to find a way to send this to the Glee folks. Their youngest fan!
I don’t know if you have time to actually watch this, but nobody believed me when I said my (at the time) almost 2 year old sang with me in the car…to GLEE…
If you get a chance, you should watch
So stinkin’ cute! I love baby grooves. LOL
ahhh hahaha! fist pumping and then shakin her thang?? haha girls on fire!
That was too funny! It made me laugh out loud. Thanks for sharing!
Cutest video ever!!! and to quote my lil Zoe (who’s 3 1/2)
The baby’s dancing!! she’s so silly.. i like that dancing baby mom!
That was the most hilarious dancing baby video I’ve ever seen Especially the moves at the very end when she was up on her knees!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! LOL!!!!!!
ok I agree that has to be one of my favorites!
oh my goodness! this is the cutest video ever! and, you only have 10 episodes saved on your dvr? I have all 30! haha!!
So happy right now.
Girlfriend’s got some serious moves! Can’t wait to show this one to V in the morning. She asks to see your girls almost every morning. *g*
Annie is awesome.
My 6 month old loves Glee too. I can’t wait until he can dance to it.
She was gettin’ down! This is priceless.
American Idol came out when my oldest was a little guy, same type of thing
That is AWESOME!
Hands down the cutest thing I have seen in a really long time!!!
She is so adorable.
Dying. She is adorable!
Okay, I posted a comment saying that your Annie & Rigby Christmas Album video was the first thing to make me laugh today… well, this is the first thing to make me laugh so hard I cried! It’s absolutely adorable!!! Thanks, Annie!! You made my day!
That has got to be one of the most adorable things i have ever seen. i love the fact that she has purpose behind her movement. annie dances better than many adults i know. she is too precious…
I found your website a few months ago and I just had to let you know that you and Annie are helping me get through my finals of my first semester of law school. Some much needed lightheartedness! Reading about Annie and Rigby is a nice distraction from reading about the law.
OMG! I love it! I had to watch it without sound, and it’s STILL funny!(perhaps even funnier?)
