Future Ballerina




Claire started dance class this morning!! How cute is that purple tutu??!! She had a blast and did very well. Something I realized today, she is incredibly tall!! Lane mentioned that she was a head taller than all of the girls in school, but I had not seen it first hand (Lane had seen them all lined up against the wall going to the potty =). So today when she first when into class, she was so much taller, I mean full head and shoulders, I panicked that I had put her in the wrong class!! I asked the Studio Manager and she said it was right, Claire is just tall!!! I am floored!! We knew she was tall, but we have never looked at it in perspective. Claire is tall and skinny and Owen is tall and stout, I am starting to think all of the Dr Pepper I drink (used to, I HATE DIET), makes your kids tall....good reason to start drinking it again before Baby 3 =)! The good news, she will be in the center of all the girls at the recital since she is the tallest...I thought that, but I heard some Moms saying that during class...under their breath =)! She ball-changed like a pro and learned to point her toes, it was great!! Dancing was my passion growing up, so of course I teared up watching her =)


Have a great day!!!

I don't care if she is my grandaughter, she is simply beautiful. With that head tilt, she looks like her Aunt Tara. I cannot wait for the first recital.

Tell her Nana said she is adorable in that tutu.

She is so adorable!! Now that I saw those pictures of you and Shane when you were young (I actually thought that was Heath at first glance in the first picture! ha) she is your spitting image!! She's so pretty and like tara and becky, I can't wait for the first recital!

ps. Did you figure out how to tie that bag up? I still need to do that for Sterling? Let me know how you did it!

pss. It is amazing to me how tall she is! She's going to LOVE that when she gets older! Lucky girl! :)

Kate is tall for her age, too! My dad and i are both tall, so she has no choice!

Claire gets it all from her momma. Looks, dance, and height!!!
but I think she has my personality...

She is so cute in that tutu and backpack!!! My sister and I were really into dance when we were younger, it's such a fun activity for little girls. Too bad NONE of that grace lasted in me... ;)
