The little girl balancing is not mine, just an amazing act I found on you tube... here is another. Ok if this was my dd I would be terrified!!! Gymnastics is bad enough... these little ones are just amazing for so young.
there is another one I found - but lost - of a dad swinging his baby around... it was terrifying to say the least, but pretty remarkable. I would have reported them (JK) lolo, until I found out that baby is now grown up and a level 9 gymnast... wish I could find it again. Sorry JBS, I can't embed it - whenever I try it does not work...
ok, this vid is a little terrifying for mom's to watch:eye-popping:.... I thought this girl was now a levl 9 gymnast, but I was incorrect... She IS a very healthy, 16 yr old higher level gymnast in Canada today though.
My daughter used to do that first thing... grab onto your hands and walk up to your belly and then flip over. The hard part was when she did it to poor unsuspecting people who thought she just wanted to hold their hands! We signed her up for gym class after she started doing a full run, hands down & then flip over at about 2 1/2 . I was afraid she would break her neck! I guess that would just about describe most of our kids here right?
The swing thru the legs on that video would have scared the ^%$#@! out of me though.
