Daddy's Little Laker Girl

Basically ever since Tim and I started dating he would always say that I should be a Lakers girl. (The dancers/cheerleaders who perform/cheer for the NBA Lakers.) It is just a fantasy of Tim's because he is a die-hard Laker fan. haha BUT, looks like we may have created a future Lakerette!




This sudden obsession started last week while walking to her bed for naptime. Marisa saw Tim's Lakers shirt and asked me if she could sleep with it along with her Georgie. Of course, I let her because I thought it was cute that she wanted a piece of her Daddy as a source of comfort. Since then, she has to have his shirt to sleep for nap or at night for bed. She also wants to wear it all the time!

After sleeping all night with it she wanted to hold it during breakfast!

When she was really little we taught her to "raise the roof" whenever we said, "Go Lakers!" Now that she can talk, she always says, "Go Lakers" on her own when she sees the Lakers logo, the players, the colors, Tim's shirt, etc. whether it is on tv, on the computer, or in person. She didn't need much persuasion to become a fan after "raising the roof" at age 1!

Yelling out, "Go Lakers!"

2 quick stories: First, Marisa is fully aware that Daddy loves the Lakers. When he came home one day she said, "Daddy, watch Lakers!" (The Lakers were not playing that day.) Tim said, "Ok, Marisa!" because he thought it was cute and Marisa excitedly said, "Ok!" and turned on the TV for him. Then her next demand was, "Daddy, sit on couch!" haha She loves Daddy/daughter time on the couch and watching the Lakers together!

Second, Tim was at his sister's house watching game 4 of the playoffs. I stayed home because Marisa was kinda sick with a minor cold and it was bedtime for her. After almost an hour of not being able to sleep I finally gave in and let Marisa chill with me on the couch while we watched the last 4 minutes together. Again she wanted to wear the shirt and kept saying, "Go Lakers!...Where Daddy?" I love this picture of her...

Just watching the game...sippin' on water...

Tanya...how are you doing? I just saw that you posted a comment on our blog. I'm still trying to figure out the blogging world. Maybe you can help with one thing...how do you get the list of all the friends on your page?

Anyways, hows the pregnancy going? I'm counting down...8 more weeks! I can't believe how big Marisa is getting!! She is adorable and is the cutest Laker girl! Good luck with house hunting. It is a great time to buy. We got a lot of good incentives and with the 8,000 tax credit, we couldn't pass it up. It's so nice to be in our own place and call it "home", especially with the little one coming soon. But I hope things are going good! Keep in touch and good luck with everything!
