Dance 2014

Every Thursday this year Wren danced her big heart out in tap and ballet class. We got to see the culmination of her work at the dance recital this week – on her fifth birthday. She did a beautiful job. She just loves dance. I’m so proud of our little dancer!









Another great thing about dance is that Wren got to be with her best friend, Maddie, on Thursday afternoons. They have so much fun together.


Congratulations, beautiful and strong dancer! Keep up the hard, spirited work.


The Birdies. 21/52

A portrait of my birdies, once a week, every week, in 2014.

Phoebe Jane. “I two and a HALF, Mama.” Oh yes, my darling, you are two and a half. You are such a pure joy!


Super duper big week for Wren. She had her dance recital and she turned five. More on both of those later. Just a little portrait now of my wonderful Wren Sabina, looking very much like five and not four anymore. Bittersweet.


she dances

Seems like just yesterday the little birdie started walking and now she’s dancing her (big) heart out in head-to-toe pink in her first “creative movement” class. As I was looking through the windows of studio 3, I had one of those “how did I get here?” moments. In a good way. Cue the Talking Heads music…

I had mixed feelings about going down this pink and frilly rabbit hole, but Wren couldn’t be more thrilled about it. So I am too. Plus, I just don’t think I’ve ever seen anything cuter than a bunch of chubby toddlers in pink leotards and tights, skipping around a dance studio. Have you?
