Baby Ballerina

We have (as promised) our very own BABY BALLERINA!!!
It has taken her 4 classes, but she finally frolics around the room and follows directions. Isabelle had zero problems marching into class and leaving mommy behind (but i really had no doubt this would happen).
For the first few classes, Isabelle simply stood and watched the teacher look rather silly (i imagine this was what she was thinking) prancing in circles around the room & walking with a bean bag on her head. Isabelle had no problems taking all of the props given to her while watching or putting on the second tutu over her first along with butterfly wings. This dress up part is probably the highlight every time. In fact, during the last class Isabelle put on her "butterfly costume", ran to the viewing window, found me, turned around and pointed at her wings, then turned around to smile at me. DARLING! She is defiantly loving being involved in class now - she always loved it, now she loves actually participating.
I'll let you know how the recital goes and if she decides to go professional after this class. ;)
Love, Mommy

Spring Has Sprung

The end of March brought much warmer temperatures and lots of fun developments in our home.
Adelaide moved into a high chair and began eating her first foods - food processed green beans, carrots, squash, zucchini & broccoli. Adelaide LOVES to eat. She LOVES being involved in meal time and the spoon feels awesome on her sore gums. Her sweet little smiles & giggles continue to make us all happier. She is absolutely wonderful. Her teeth should appear any day!!!
Isabelle has begun to tell us all about her day - we had begun to talk to her about things she's been doing for the past couple of months and she's learned to now simply tell us. We sit in bed with her at night after bath time and books. We scratch her back with the lights off and ask her about her favorite parts of the day and what fun things the following day holds. She uses mostly key words, but is always trying to make sentences. She is so wonderful and these little moments are so nice especially if she goes to sleep as soon as we leave her room. ;)
Love, Mommy & Daddy
PS - We have decided to purchase a new computer, so I'm holding off on uploading our new photo editing software (thus no photo editing).

Waiting for Dinner....and waiting and waiting....
