Hop, Jump, One Hand in the Air

My two year old daughter loves to dance. Since the moment she could pull up and stand she had her dancing shoes on.  I love this because I sense a natural love for music in her soul.  I know this time will go fast. In a flash, it will go from her dancing the "Hot Dog Dance" with Mickey Mouse to dancing at her wedding. But for now, I am overjoyed to see the moves this girl has in her.  Right now, her current move is what we call the "hop, jump, one hand in the air".  Her right foot never leaves the ground like its been cemented in a cartoon ACME way. All while the left foot is hopping like a problem child who isn't getting their way.  As for the hand in the air, waving like it doesn't care? To me, it's her way of showing the dance gods, "Hey! I am here! I can dance!"  I hope this enchantment with music continues. As far as her moves go...you never know the "hop, jump, one hand in the air" may be the next big craze! At least, she isn't whipping or nae naeing.
