A Star is Born

Sadie had her first ballet recital on Wednesday, May 31. The dance was "I'm a Little Teapot." I wish I knew how to post the video of her performance, but I'll have to post a few pre- and post-show instead.

Mom has finished the hair and has admonished Sadie not to mess with it until after the show. Mom is very proud of her handiwork. Sadie grudgingly agrees to throw Mom a bone.

Still sitting pretty. Dad snaps away while Mom gets dressed.

In the car, on the way to the Big Show at the Meydenbauer Center in Bellevue, WA. A first-class operation across the board.

Post-Show: Mom has finally allowed Sadie to rid her hair of all foreign objects. Dad presents the flowers to our little ballerina. Life is good, indeed.

Okay, I think I've gotten the "proud mama" bit out of my system for a while. The waters of this blog ought to be safe and free of Sadie pics for a long spell. Thanks for bearing with me -- I hope all moms are as insufferable as I over their first-borns.

Sadie looks just like her "Princess Bear" :). How precious is the picture of her with her flowers! That is frame worthy!!

It's funny you should mention her "Princess Bear," vm. I've long wanted to get a pic of Sadie in her dress-up Princess costume holding her bear. Now I am reminded to do that. They've got matching wimples, you know.

I'll be sure to e-mail you one once I get the tableau set up and the pic snapped.

No way - you don't have to get anything out of your system...I don't get to do all this girly stuff with my kid so I'm living vicariously through you. You did her hair so cute :)

Awwww, she looks so precious! I agree with vm, that is definitely frame worthy! You have a very photogenic girl. :)

Adorable! I agree with Arielle and everyone else. I'm glad you showed off your lovely little girl.

Love and shalom,

ps - back online and soon to go downstairs and get busy on my food storage units I'm building.
