Wrist fat


Do you see this? Isn't it great? The beginning stages of wrist fat! Wrist fat is one of my favorite things about babies and Ella is finally beginning to get some. I love it when babies look like they have those screw-on hands. You know when they have so much wrist fat it looks like someone just screwed their little hands too tight on to their arms? Yeah...love it. I'm thinking that if you have fat rolls on your wrist you're doing okay and there's really no chance you're going to wither away. And I'm pretty sure that only in the first year or two of life is anyone really ever thrilled that they have wrist fat. So proud of my girl and her wrist rolls. By the way, she weighed 11 lbs. at the doc today, woo-hoo!!

Completely off topic but I just discovered this children's show called Yo Gabba Gabba. I know most people have probably seen it because it's been on for a few years but it's new to me. Anyway, since Ella still has to be distracted somewhat to eat we've been watching it sometimes while I try to feed her. Have you seen this show? Bizarre and hysterical at the same time. I know I have a warped sense of humor but seriously this show is just so strange that it's funny. I don't even know how to describe it but let me just start out by saying that it involves a grown man dressed in an orange shag wig and orange unitard. Unitards could be a whole other post in itself but as if orange unitard guy isn't enough it also features 80's rapper Biz Markie. I know, awesome right? Ring a bell with any of you old-school rap fans out there? You remember Biz Markie, famous for his beat-boxing and the song "Just a Friend." So great. I mean who wants to watch Dora or The Wiggles when you've got Biz Markie teaching kids about personal hygiene by beat-boxing about things like how to brush your teeth? Not me. :) After his segment it's not too far out there to say that on any given day you might also see a girl playing her recorder through her nose or a guy teaching kids how to do "The Robot." Honestly, that's good stuff. I'm not making this up, so weird. It doesn't disappoint because every episode also ends with all the strange characters of the show inviting a celebrity friend for "dancey-dance" time where they all dance together. So far I've seen Jan from The Office and Rachel Dratch from SNL. Not even kidding. Simply stunning.

Next post I'll have something more worthwhile and mature to write about. :)

Yeah Ella....11 lbs. and wrist fat !!! So proud of her and you honey. Ella looks beautiful, what a baby doll. I am glad to hear the good news and I hope everything is going well for you. Ava watches Yo Gabba Gabba and I have to say the first time I saw it I had to think what the heck are we watching !! haha...it is very strange but whatever works for sweet Ella. I love the pictures and I love you all. Big hugs and kisses to all of you.

What a blessing. Wrist fat is a sign from God that He is in control. Also, to have family being close this summer. Both are signs from God that there is reason for hope & for joy in a time of so much concern & pain. God is good. There is light in your world & there will be more light in a few hours when your precious Eva returns. She has been so much fun & is a sweetheart, a true joy. Thank you for sharing her. And thank you for how you encourage all of us who know you. You are a delight to the Lord.
Psalms 147:11 CC

I'd bet money that you may be the first person to have a blog post about Yo Gabba Gabba. Love it.

Crackin me up! I am so baffled by Yo Gabba Gabba.... I usually turn it off because I don't want R to love it. I mean, all the quesitons she would have about that show... I couldn't answer them!! So weird. Did you see Jack Black guest appearance?! So bizzare.... :)

YAY for wrist fat! Way to go Ella! LOVE her flower picture too.... such an angel!

Kendra said...

Your baby is the cutest little flower I've ever seen! And Brady has a Yo Gabba Gabba shirt he likes it that much. You could have one, too, if you want? Walmart - they are pretty cheap! (he)And I think it's pretty crazy, but catchy, too

Jennifer said...

I heart wrist fat. Fabulous.

Randi Freeby said...

I really wish fat roles were still in. I seem to attract them. Anyway, I have never made it that far through that show, but maybe I need to. I was thinking about you today and said a prayer for you. I am glad you posted. Your baby girl is so precious.

Summer and Jason said...

Have you heard the song, "Party in my Tummy" on that show yet? It's pretty great...Jason and I love to sing it in the privacy of our home. But you didn't hear that from me. :-)

Kelly said...

She is really adorable, and I'm thrilled for you about the wrist fat! :)

I think I kind of forced YGG on my son b/c I thought it was so crazy/funny. He now goes in public and proclaims to anyone who will listen..."My name is Tate...I like to dance!"

LYN said...

Wrist fat!! hooray...who woudd thot? Praise God for wrist fat. And...how out of it am I? what kind of grandmother wouldn't know about yo gabba? My little men are spending the night with us tonight....we'll search for yo gabba. You're such a blessing to me....both of you!! well, all four of you!!

Calista said...

First of all, go Ella!! That's great. Eat girl, eat!! She is so precious and I just love how those blue eyes shine. What a cutie!! We love Yo Gabba Gabba. I didn't at first but after awhile it grew on me and now I find it entertaining. Sometimes it's nice to watch something besides Dora. Hope things are getting better and sorry I haven't called in awhile. I promise to be a better friend. Love ya.

Chesley said...

I love the screw on wrists! Both of mine have had them. Ansley still really does. Check out my new post of her little hands.

When Yo Gabba Gabba comes on it puts me in a trance...it's so weird. It's a little freaky like a bad movie that I really don't want to watch but I just can't stop myself.

Angie said...

My name is Angie! I like to DANCE!!!! Adam and I, though currently childless, LOVE YO GABBA GABBA. Good to see you Carders are well! Hugs!!!

"There's a party in my tummy--uh huh--a party in my tummy!" Yo Gabba Gabba...it IS a weird show! That totally trips me out that you would have a chat with us all about it! My kids will stare at that show, while Curtis & I roll our eyes at how "gay" it is! But it's fun, too!

Ella looks so great! And she has the cutest wrist fat I've ever seen! I am so glad she is doing so well. Keep up the great work Aimes! Love you!

BTW...there's this thing called Facebook..where you can keep in touch with a ton of people. You should try it--I'd love to add you as a friend!
