My Adorable Angel

AJ will be 3 years old at the end of this month. This post is dedicated to her. I was planning to do this anyway, but then had a special request (I've actually had a couple friends ask about her), so here is my tribute to AJ.

She loves all things girly-Strawberry Shortcake, My Little Pony, Carebears, Barbie, fairies, butterflies, pink, and especially PRINCESSES! Her favorite is Sleeping Beauty. Some friends from church gave her the shoes and tiara for Christmas, so we were left with no choice but to let her get the dress with some of her Christmas money. On Monday, January 5, she attended her first ballet class.

She actually does 15 minutes of tumbling, 15 of ballet & 15 of tap.
Look how tiny her shoes are! (That's Michael's hand.)

On Wednesday, January 7, she started preschool at the Lutheran church in town. She goes two days a week and LOVES it.

Here she is on her second day with her teacher, Ms. Amy. That Mr. Potato Head has a mermaid outfit!

I have a way-too-adorable video of her first day of dance when she was practicing her tap dance, but it is also way-too-large. So this one of her debut as Princess Aurora will have to do.

Oh, how my baby is growing up!

Sweet wishes!

There are several elements involved in the anatomy of a pointe shoe, all of which contribute to its fit and performance. When first starting out in ballet and you will need to purchase Ballet shoes , you will not need pointe shoes until you reach a more advanced level..

What a sweetheart-she is positively precious! I'm sure she'll enjoy dance just as much as her momma!!
