Work It Girl!

Bella has been going to baby gym for about 2 months. I was lucky enough to find a local gymnastics club that offers free baby gym every Wednesday morning (woohoo for free) so we definitely took advantage of that! It's been great to expand Bella's horizons a little since she is usually just with me! At first she was not so sure about it but she definitely has her favorite activities now. It takes a break for the summer (bummer) but comes back in August so we are looking forward to that! A warning....you will see lots of dark spots all over Bella's pants, some genius mom let her have a squeezy pack of strawberries on the way to gym in the car and when we got there she had squeezed it all over herself instead of eating it, what kind of mom would let their child do that....not me for sure! :-) Rowdy has been asking to see pictures of it so here is a little view into baby gym.


I just thought she was making the funniest/oddest face so I had to put this one first. She is doing one of her favorite things to do at baby gym, climb the big wedges, she loves them!


A mini trampoline. She gets a little nervous on the big trampoline sometimes but she likes the little ones and likes when we stand on it and bounce together.


The big "C" shaped wedge. It's fun because you can rock it back and forth....another one that Bella only likes sometimes, sometimes it freaks her out a little :-) Oh my sweet, scaredy cat little girl!



Parallel bars for walking in between


Back to her favorite, the wedge, she would happily do this the whole time we are there. They set up a bunch together and connect them to some flat/higher up surfaces in between to give them lots of things to climb up and down on, her favorite for sure.


More wedges....



A baby version of a rock wall (and for Bella, just another version of the wedge so, of course, it appealed to her)


It's more steep than it looks in the pictures, I was amazed she climbed it so well and so quickly!


More climbing up and down things....


This is the "blueberry pit." A big pit filled with foam wedges. It's really deep (like I would guess between 6-10 feet) and at the bottom is a trampoline. I'm not going to lie, it is a workout just to get in and out of this thing! And it is never graceful! This is another one that Bella sometimes loves and sometimes hates. It's so funny! There are two of them and she actually seems to prefer one over the other, even though they are identical. Silly girl!


I will have to do an updated post in the fall when we go back to baby gym and (hopefully) Bella is walking!
