“[Kenzie] loves to dance. So whenever you put music on she does this little booty shake and just gets so excited. It melts my heart every time,” the actress told PEOPLE Tuesday at the Operation Shower and Birdies for the Brave group baby shower for military moms-to-be.
“She just loves music. She loves to play the tambourine and she’ll dance to it,” shares Mitchell of her 10-month-old while at the event, which was sponsored by Carousel Designs and took place during the PGA Tour’s 2014 Northern Trust Open.
She adds, “She is more musical and she’s already got better moves than I do. For sure, she’s a better dancer.”
Mitchell, 33, says an even bigger milestone is watching her daughter cruise around the house. “She has mastered the crawl and now she can actually stand up and she can walk holding onto things, but she’s definitely mobile. It’s crazy,” she shares.
The former 7th Heaven star admits her real estate investor husband, Michael Cameron, is a very doting dad. “We’re definitely a team. It takes both of us. We do everything together and he is so hands-on,” she explains. “I couldn’t do it without him. It’s amazing.”
The couple even take turns cuddling with their baby girl. “It’s priceless. Being able to see them interact, I’ve fallen so madly in love with him all over again, watching him with Kenzie,” adds Mitchell with a smile.
And with their daughter celebrating her first birthday in March, Mitchell jokes she should start planning soon.
“I actually should probably get on that. Apparently, I need a theme. We’ll definitely do something small with family and friends, but I have no idea what it is,” she says.
As for a possible sibling for Kenzie? “We definitely want to have more. We’re very much enjoying Kenzie right now, but in the future though, definitely,” she explains. “I think we would be happy [with a boy or a girl], just obviously a healthy baby.”
