- Tuesday night/Wednesday early morning Mike and I woke to the sound every parent hates: their child throwing up in bed. Mike grabbed Annie and brought her into the kitchen to clean her while I changed the bed’s sheets. Annie then proceeded to throw up all over Mike and the kitchen. Annnnd after we cleaned her up from that, she barfed in the living room. So that was awesome. After her puke trilogy, she immediately started acting like she felt better. Puke and rally! She will thrive in college.
- Thanks to all of you, we came in fifth in the Living Spaces YouTube contest. That gives us a cool $1,000 in furniture! You all are the BEST! We’ve started family discussions on exactly what furniture we want. I would love a bedroom set, Mike wants family room furniture, Annie wants a trampoline (which they don’t sell at that store, but shhh), and Rigby wants a big floor cushion. We might have to compromise.
- Speaking of the YouTube contest, Annabel is obsessed with the video. Is there a stronger word than obsessed? Because that’s what Annabel is.
if you can’t see the video above, click here
I think she might be one of the vainest toddlers ever.
Em ADORES Annie’s video, too! We must’ve watched it a dozen times.
“AGAIN! AGAIN! I want to see Annabel!”
It really was such a great video!
Congrats on placing in the contest!
Yay, that’s awesome. Now you can start to fill your beautiful new house with furniture.
Annie’s reaction to her video is so cute!
Annie really looks like Maddie in the video and I love that shirt. Her big sister would be so proud.
That’s what I was about to say!
Watching such a funny video wasn’t a chore….
So sweet. My youngest just loves watching herself on video or having her photo taken. I love seeing her dance along with her air guitar.
Enjoy your new furniture, which ever you get.
She is soooooooo cute. And, for the first time (to me), she really looks like her sister. Thanks for sharing:)
Lynn from For Love or Funny says:
LOL! I loved your observation that Annie will thrive in college if she can rally so quickly from puking!
My Colby has just developed the habit of asking to see “PI-chures!” whenever he sees my laptop. He’ll only look at the picture of himself and say either “Colby!” to the older ones or “Awww. Baaaaby!” to the younger ones. Kissing is usually involved.
I like Annie’s idea of a trampoline!
OMG – she is so adorable – i think the opening dance moves are my favorite part!!
I am digging her dance moves! I also do the fist pumps in the air.
Yaye!! Congrats on the win!
She knows brilliant acting when she sees it.
Congratulations on your prize!
BWAHAHAHAHA!!! Her little dance at the beginning is SO funny! And adorable!!
Ugh – I hope that Annie gets better soon (at least she is not getting sick on your new furniture!). Congratulations!! I am so glad that you all won. If you are taking votes I vote with you for bedroom furniture. I have the jingle stick in my head too. . .
Good LORD she’scute. I think you guys have a dancer on your hands…
I can’t wait to see what you guys pick! So fun.
Annie is adorable!
Cute!! Just wanted to say that Mike and Matt Logelin sound very similar on video!!
Kristin (MamaKK922) says:
Annie is SO adorable!! I still think you guys should have won first but $1000 isn’t anything to balk at.
Ewww, tummy-sick babies are NO fun!
LOL – I love how Annie turns to Rigby and says, “Look!”… at least that’s what it sounds/looks like.
I love that shirt!
Hilarious. Those opening dance moves are killing me! Congrats on $$$ for furniture!
Oh wow…. I saw so much MADDIE there!! Amazing!! (and adorable shirt, btw!)
What a cutie patootie!
I was a puke and rally girl myself. Also, I have the same awful dance moves. I guess if she needs pointers in college she can give me a call.
She’s a little dancing machine!
Catch the Kids says:
This made me laugh. Puke and rally indeed. Goodness that Annie is cute!
Cutest video ever! I love her little dance. And that shirt has to be the sweetest thing I’ve ever seen. She wears her sister beautifully! (I think that sentence sounds awkward, but I’m not sure how else to say it)
She’s trying to press ‘replay’ again to be able to watch it again and again! How cute!
katrina @ They All Call Me Mom says:
I have been woken up by puke many times. Many, many times. It’s never fun. When they are babies in your bed that’s one thing. But when you have a 6 or 7 year old standing at the side of your bed while you are sleeping, and you can just “feel” that someone is there, so you wake up…only to stare said child in the face while he or she mumbles, “Mom…I think I’m going to throw up.” and before you can get the words, “Go to the toilet!” out of your mouth, you get vomited on. Yea, that’s even more fun than the toddler puking in your bed. Because even though your kid is sick, you cannot help but to get angry at that moment. I mean, WHY do they do that? Why wake me up to tell me they are going to throw up and then throw up on ME instead of in the toilet? What are kids thinking, anyway? Is that their way of getting back at me for all the “No, you can’t do that/go there/watch that’s” during the day? It’s the perfect revenge, if you think about it. Being sick, you know, you get special treatment. So vomiting on your parent’s face while they are dead asleep – there’s really no punishment for that. Yep, the perfect revenge.
On another note, Annie looks adorable in her little Maddie shirt while watching herself on the video!
good god she is so cute!! and in this video, she looks SO much like maddie!!!
The whole video is adorable but her dance moves in the beginning are my favorite! It’s one of those “oh yeah this is my song!” dance moves. so cute!
She is soooooo cute. I love seeing her talk and dance. Thanks for sharing!
Barbi Brickley Emel says:
Yeah, that all worked out perfectly with the furniture. Post pictures of what you buy!
My 5 yr old is sitting here saying “Awwwww, she’s so cute.”
i love the fist pump at the beginning. she’s freaken adorable…also YAY to spending 1k less in decorating your casa
She’s cute! I had to laugh when Mike said “It’s over you can stop looking at it”. I think it’s great she loves herself. I hope that last her a life time!
Rita from the Chicago says:
So puke totally sucks…but Annie is the cutest!!! I love how she starts clapping when the video starts. And when she points at the screen, I imagine her saying, “Yep, that’s me! I’m so cute!”
Vanity is such a hallmark of a toddler…so funny!
Debbie Zimpfer says:
Great video! I have been wondering………..how is Jackie doing?
I love how as she’s starting to see the vid she turns around to Rigby on the couch, like telling him “hey get over here, it’s us” lol
And the giggle at the end… LOVE!
Thanks for sharing Annie with all of us!
1. Yay for $1000 of furniture – that’s nothing to sniff at!
2. Annie is adorable watching herself and Rigby.
3. OMG I HAVE THAT SAME MUSIC NOTE BLANKET!!! I feel so special having something in common with you guys!
She’s a peach!
Adorable dance moves!! I loved the way she just started grooving when the song came on. So, cute!! She’s a doll!
Sorry to hear she puked! Hope it was just a quick little bout of illness!
Annie is so cute! So happy you guys won some furniture!!
I still can’t believe the video that won, how in the #$%^ did he get so many hits. It wasn’t even good. I was expecting a “great” voice, yours was so much better. But glad you got $1,000. that’ll buy some really nice things. Can’t wait to see what you pick out. I’ve been wearing my Maddie shirt every night afte my shower. I love it.
Her dance moves at the beginning are my favorite! Too cute! Congrats on winning 5th place!
Annabel is so adorable. Congrats on 5th place! Enjoy the new furniture.
Kandi Ann says:
I love love love how she immediately starts hitting keys when its over to start it again. She is one of the top 10 toddlers ever.
You may want to be careful letting her play with the computer keys. I know this from personal experience. She totally gets her dance moves from you Heather!
Dawn @ What's Around the Next Bend? says:
Puke, rally, and DANCING!!!
Yep, she will DEF survive in college
Yay!! Glad we could all help. Annie and Rigby are so adorable!!
Just when I think I’ve seen the cutest video ever, you post an even cuter one!!! Those dance moves in the beginning kill me. She is so adorable.
First off sorry to hear about the throwing up, hope she’s feeling better. Second congrats on the big win!!!! And OMG I love this video, she’s seriously the cutest.
She’s too cute!
I love her dance moves!!
