My little ballerina (and some random pics)

Filed under: friends,photos — by Lauren on September 10th, 2008 @ 11:12 pm

Anya and I had taken a Mommy and Me dance class over the summer.  She loved it so much that I enrolled her again for the year.  The teacher had pulled me aside after one of our classes and said that if I sign her up for the fall, I should put her in the 2 1/2 year old group instead of the baby class, even though she’s not yet two, because she had done so well this summer (with following directions and participating).  Today was the first day.  During the summer, the kids can wear any comfortable clothes, but during the year they are supposed to wear little dance outfits.  When I got her dressed this morning, she was SO excited about her tights and her little skirt.  She loved looking at herself in the mirror.  I just wanted to eat her up!

Some pictures I’ve been meaning to post:

I was amused that she fell asleep like this

    What a precious ballerina … and reader.

    She is adorable. It’s amazing how kids fall asleep as if someone “fliped the switch”!

    Grammy – Thank you! Looking at a book remains Anya’s absolute favorite activity – even in her sleep!

    Emma – Thank you as well! I miss the days when Anya would fall sleep anywhere. Now it’s the crib/bed and on rare occasions, her car seat, but that’s it. Thanks for visiting our site!
