Clearly We Are the Next Big Thing

Jayci @ 16 months old from Becca Stanley on Vimeo.

A few notes about this stellar video:
1- I know you are all super-impressed by my tower building skillz. Especially the way I promptly knock over everything I add to the tower.
2- I am slightly appalled by the levels of dust on that side table. And if I'm appalled, it must be bad.
3- I'm thinking I should have wiped Jayci's nose before deciding it was a good time to film her for all of blog-land to see. I dont want to doom her to social suicide before she even starts preschool.
4-Jayci may or may not be wearing a 3-6 month old size sweater. I thought it fit, but now that I see it on video, I'm rethinking my position. This is what I do with nearly every outfit I put on. I think I look GOOD until I see it on film of some sort.
5-Please ignore my "singing." Clearly if I was actually trying to sing well, my voice would sound a lot more like Kelly Clarkson.
6-Jayci keeps trying to pick/wipe her nose. I think it's a hint that I should wipe it.
7-Please also ignore the tipped over space heater. It's very safe and not a fire hazard at all.


  1. She is so unbelievably cute in living color! I love her expressions!

  2. HAHA!! Great video and I love your notes below it! She is adorable!

  3. Oh. my. I miss those days! As they get older, the conversations aren't so cute and simple. What a smart, sweet baby girl... I love her smile, and the way she says "Mama?" Precious...

  4. Clearly she is brilliant as she has her mother doing her building work for her.

  5. Becca,
