Tumble Tot

Remember this? This is Montana at 2 years old on Christmas morning 2008. All you really wanted for Christmas from Santa that year was a red gymnastics leo with a Santa penguin on it that you saw at the gymnastic shop. This is your favorite leo and you call it your Santa leo.

Montana talks about this Santa leo


You were still too young at 2 years old to take formal gymnastics lessons, so you did what any inspiring athlete would do.
Practiced at home on the practice beam.

We love to watch you put on mini shows for us on the beam when big sisters practice.
(please excuse the background in the pictures, we were in the process of putting away Christmas decor and packing my husband up to leave for deployment.)

Fast forward to January 2010 after getting settled in VA, Montana was finally able to take lessons at the local gymnastics gym. Wednesday's after lunch is your day for lesssons and you are always ready to go first thing in the morning. It is sometimes hard for you to wait until after lunch because you are so excited.

This past weekend we had your very first Tumble Tot Gymnastics Expo at the gym. She was estatic because she knew it wasn't Wednesday and that meant she got to go to the gym two days that week, just like big sisters!

Here's a couple of shots of you in action:

look Mama, one hand!!!

almost vertical on handstand, good job!

watching the big girls

It was so fun watching you shine in the spotlight. You were not afraid at all to perform in front of the crowd. You did your routine and had the best time doing it.

Keep up the good work my little tumble tot!
