Tiny Dancer

One of my favorite moments of being a mama
just happened this week...
taking Allikaye to dance class!

It was the cutest...
It made me appreciate so much more
my new stay-at-home status
because this wouldn't have been possible if I was working!

Oh my - it was priceless!

At first Allikaye wouldn't look at Miss Tammy -
and kept coming over to give me a hug and a kiss.
She would say, "Just one more hug and kiss
then I'll go to my carpet!"
Well, that just melted my heart!

Here is Miss Tammy helping Allikaye do 1st Position.
Alli keeps wanting to practice "1st pobision"
As the teacher went to help other students with 1st position,
Allikaye stayed frozen in hers!
There were only 4 little girls in her class -
but only two (Allikaye and another) that were really participating.
The other two girls seemed to not even be 2 years old -
so I was wishing more attention wasn't on the babies
that couldn't even understand the teacher.
But I am very thankful for such a small class -
and great teacher!

Oh, my -
then we got to do a little tap dancing!!

This was a new and exciting experience!
I love the looks she would give me on the sidelines!
We just might have a tap dancer on our hands...
she was great at tappin!
I can't get enough!!!
Too cute!

So I am just enthralled with my beatiful dancer!
She just blows me away with cuteness!

We are going to go practice walking on our tip tip toes now!
Need to make Miss Tammy proud next Wednesday!

Lily started her 2nd year of dance class this past Thursday and I feel the same exact way as you described. They are precious learning to dance and those smiles and sweet faces that they send to you on the sidelines make everything worth it.

Just wait til it's recital time and they get all dressed up in their pretty tutus. You will be so excited and proud of her.

I can already imagine her future as "America's Favorite Dancer" on "So You Think You Can Dance"!!! I would definitely vote for her! Hopefully she gets an amazing roommate in college and they can choreograph some sweet moves together!
Love you!
