  1. oh.

    the bum shot is to die for.

    beautiful picture, and beautiful kid.

    she is going to love dance class!

    Delurking to say: Oh my God, that might just be the cutest set of pictures I’ve ever seen!

  3. cuter than cute. i love the first one — those are some big toe shoes to fill 😉

  4. It has been a joy watching Jessie grow up from tiny dancer to not so tiny dancer. I still watch her first recital occasionally. I’m a big wuss – I know how it ends and I still cry.

  5. GREAT shots!

    Wendy’s last blog post..at least I know music from the 70’s…..

  6. Too cute! She’s got the cutest little legs (and I’d say bum but that sounds a little freaky so I’ll stick with legs). I want Hailey to be a dancer when she grows up, but it’s not in her genes. Here’s hoping for a miracle.

  11. can’t. handle. cuteness.

    i pretty much died the day that i put emily in her first leotard and ballet slippers. i have dreams of her at the American Ballet Academy headed by the very big eyebrowed Peter Gallagher…wait? what? i’m the only one with dreams of my daughter in Center Stage??

  12. Oh my word. The moosh is the cutest thing to ever don a tutu. I’m SURE of it. She ‘s so darling I almost can’t stand it. It’s like when I see a really cute cat and I have the urge to pet it REALLY hard. (You know what I mean, right? RIGHT?) That’s how cute she is.

    Sheyenne’s last blog post..He put his finger where?!?

  13. My goodness she is just too cute!!!

    Mandee’s last blog post..26-50

  15. Okay, when it comes to little kids, feet and bums are just the cutest. And I do not mean that in a freaky way. And Moosh looks like an absolute doll in that tutu.

  16. I love that little butt! I have pictures of my daughter’s little butt the first time she put on a tutu and they nearly kill me from the cuteness.

  17. Love the pictures and the little ballerina in them!
    I was a ballerina when I was a little girl.

  18. I’d always planned to sign my kids of up ballet, but then I had two boys, and I don’t think they’d appreciate that. (yes, I know, boys can be ballet dancers too, but not here in Texas.)

    My MIL actually signed my hubby up for ballet lessons when he was little. He is still traumatized to this day…

    Rhea’s last blog post..What the bleep?

  19. Awwww!!!! She looks adorable! I’ll be teaching my girls at home at least until they’re old enough to not WANT to learn from mom. *lol*

    Sadie’s last blog post..Updates and reminders!!

  20. I love the different wardrobe options for the moosh. They all go so well with her road rash!

    Heather’s last blog post..Eternity Clothes

  21. The only place I ever attempted ballet was my own driveway. I doubt the audience was impressed but it was as close as I was going to get.

    I hope that someday I see Moosh in the Nutcracker someday.

  22. She’s getting soooo big!

    Your photography ROCKS, by the way.

  36. As someone who danced for eight years and on a competitive team am so glad to see the Moosh getting into such a wonderful, character building sport! But, you know, she’s young now – it’s just twirls and tu tus!

  41. oh so precious! I loved being in ballet and wanted to dance forever. Unfortunately I definitely don’t have what you would call a “ballet body”. Suck that.
    I’ve got some great stories about crazy things that happened at recitals though! We even got my brother in a bumblebee costume… he’s yet to live it down!
