Guess. What.









Sophia took her first dance class and it was top five. On the list of cutest things I've EVER seen and will ever see. She went with her cute friend Mia (thank you Kodi! I would have never known where to find this perfect class.) It's "dance, play, and pretend" and they danced with scarves, balloons, flowers, and lay on the floor in a stretch like the Little Mermaid. I died. I took like a hundred pictures of course. And spent the entire span of Spider-Man 3 last night trying to force myself to delete some (What were they thinking when they made that movie?! Some space-sent black slime managed to become three of the way too many 6 or so villains-- what?) Sophia loved every second of it, (the class, that is) and I can't wait to get her a tutu and shoes (did you notice she's the only one without) and go back next Friday. This might have to be a weekly post until I tire of the cutest scene I've ever seen.

How fun! Madisen took that class when she was little and she loved it. Miss Laura does such a good job with the girls.

I've never seen so many pink leotards & tights!! When we were little I know we wore other colors. Maybe it wasn't til we were older. They are all so cute!! Great job on the pics!!

I am so glad that you didn't delete any of the pictures. They are all so etherial. Chloe is starting that class in April after the baby comes for some "one on one with mommy time." Hopefully she will enjoy it. I can't imagine that she wouldn't. She loves to dance dance dance.

That first pic Lillie is amazing. You are getting so good with your camera. It seriously is one of the pro pics we look at online.

Kodi said...

How adorable! I love the picture of her standing by herself against the wall with her cute little belly.

You can never have too many pictures of your kiddos.

Lauren said...

Oh, Lillie. Those are so precious. I am so jealous of your talent for taking pictures. Sophia is adorable. Please get those printed.

Pictures: gorgeous. Dance class: priceless. Now you understand why my jaw actually hurts from smiling while watching my little ones taking classes or practicing or performing. It is so engaging and truly no one can take their eyes off. I'm so glad she is taking this. It is such a good thing, with the new baby and all. She is taking her steps toward independence and learning group dynamics and creativity. Absolutely priceless.

You KNOW how I feel about this post. My heart leaps a little to see a little girl in her first pair of pink tights. Add those dimples, blonde hair, and belly... I am smitten and can't wait for next week! The stretches are my favorite - and that darling face you caught her making. I can't wait to see her and practice plies!!!

Kimberly said...

Awwww...I can't wait to have Brooklyn start a dance class. Sophia looked so cute, too! I loved the one of her when she was...actually I liked them all. You are so Pro.

Missy said...

SO SO SO cute Lillie. I wish I could find something like this around me. What is cuter than a 2 year old in pink ballet tights??

Lacy & Joe said...

First the important stuff. Those were great pictures and we both really enjoyed looking at them. These kids are growing up!
We especially love the one with the scrunched-up face toward the bottom.

Lacy: Too bad they don't have a class like that for boys.
Joe: A manly class.
Lacy: Yes, with kicking and jumping and spinning in circles and clenching of fists.
Joe: And yelling. Basically a ninja class. A little ninja class.

As for Spider-man 3, it was a misfire, but the space goo is one of the all-time classic story lines. It just shouldn't have been mixed up with the other stuff.
Still, I enjoyed it (Lacy hasn't seen it).

Oh, how adorable!! I love Sophia's expressions in all these, like she just knows what a big girl she is to be in dance class!! We started Lillie in dance before we moved, and I haven't had the chance to check out the dance classes offered here. It's so fun, isn't it? Girls are so much fun!!!! I can't believe that between the two of us, we'll have 4 girls!! Crazy!!

Kjerstin said...
