Ballerina Girl

On Satuday night Olivia had her first "big girl" dance recital. When I say big girl, I mean it. You would not believe all the rules and regulations that were stated in the 30 page handout given to me...everything from picture by picture instructions on how to achieve the classical ballet bun, the no-underwear rule and make-up instructions (medium-base, blush, eyeshadow, mascara, eyeliner and red lips). Add these things to the 30 minute drive downtown that I had to do 3 times this week for rehearsals and you have one stressed out mama.
Needless to say, she loved it. She was an iris from Alice in Wonderland--and shock of shocks, she danced. She didn't stand there, she didn't hold onto her ear the whole time. She danced.
When I took this pic, I looked at it on my camera screen and almost cried. I see my tiny baby turning into a big girl.
Lipstick, her favorite part. I have to say, lipstick was and still is my favorite part of make-up
So happy when she saw her reflection
I love this kid
I just think this pic is cute. I wish that was me she was running to, but alas, I hold the camera as usual...its my sister
With her BEAUTIFUL flowers Ms. Hollie made for her, she loved them!
Proud mommy and daddy
