on tuesday ella became a ballerina.
she received all the ballerina necessities for her birthday and began classes the next day.
this was her at 5:54 in the morning.
playing with her new calico critters from the day before.
(see how she even has her little ballerina backpack on?)
i was a little nervous about her.
she's pretty moody.
and, if intimidated, shuts down.
and right before we went in she looked like this.
but her first class was so perfect.
she loved it.
i mean loved loved loved it.she is a ballerina.
her little body is made for it.
she followed along flawlessly.
there was a two way glass mirror so i could watch and i figured out how to angle myself to take instagrams.
i seriously couldn't help tearing up because she was so happy and so beautiful.
i am sure she is now ella's idol...
it couldn't have been lovelier.
well, maybe a just a tad lovelier if she hadn't had a three tantrums during the second part of the day....but i think the good outweighed the bad here.
