Ballet and Gymnastics

H.B.Nanna takes after her Mommy ;)
 
When she told me she wanted to take ballet my heart jumped for joy.  I took dance lessons for 12 years and I used to dream of the day I had a daughter that took ballet.  And that day is here!!!! 
 
For her age, she had the option for a ballet and gymnastics combination class or just gymnastics.  I was glad she wanted the ballet.  The first class she said she likes ballet best.  Every week since, gymnastics seems to be the favorite.  I think she likes jumping on the giant trampoline.
 
After we signed her up I knew I needed to get leotards and tights.  I went shopping online because where we live, there aren't many options. I asked her what color she wanted and showed her all her options.  Her colors of choice - green and blue. Really?!

I think I am most excited about the recital in June!

An update...finally

Baby Boy will be 3 months old next week and I have only blogged a handful of times since he was born.  It is not that I don't want to.  As any new parent knows, it is exhausting and the few minutes of free time are better spent sleeping. Add a feisty 3 year old to the picture and well I am sure you understand...
 
It is funny how things change in just a few short years. When H.B.Nanna was little we got one of those books from the pediatrician that was completed at every visit with height and weight stats.  With Baby Boy, I have to remember what they say or type it in my phone so I don't forget. 
Note to self - keep a notepad in the diaper bag.
