In February (I know, I’m so behind) Lily had her last ballet classes from her second attempt at dance class. She loved it so much. It was just 3 other girls, two were sisters and the third was the daughter of the teacher. Lily really worked at listening and participating, she’s a little uncoordinated (my fault I’m sure), but she was getting there. I was never able to leave the room though. I tried a few times and it resulted in major meltdowns. Oh well. I’ll try again next time.
Lily was the first girl to master levitation.
I love how Lily does her ‘rockstar walk’, it cracks me up.
These next pictures are from the last class. They call it a recital, but really they just have the normal class and all the parents watch. The girls do a little dance they have been practicing at the end, but that lasted all of 2 minutes.
For most of Lily’s life every once in a while she will talk with a little southern accent. It’s super cute, but I have no idea where she got it from. A few weeks ago Lily started saying a few things with a slight British accent. I know where she got this from. The lady in the yoga video she loves on youtube has an accent as does the characters from Guess with Jess. I love this so much. I have a thing for British accents and having it come out of my kid is adorable. My chosen sister Becky however hates the Britts. I don’t know why, we haven’t ever talked about because I don’t want to have to divorce her.
This first video is how Lily usually says this little phrase.
My Pop (Grandpa for those of you not in the know) has a way with stringed instruments. All my life he’s loved to get together with his buddies and do some serious Pickin’ and Grinnin’. For the last few years he gets together with some of those buddies and they play every Friday night. My cousin Bobi was visiting last week and went to listen to the Pickin’ and gave me the ok to post these. Pop’s on the right playing his mandolin. He also plays the fiddle and some guitar. I think he can play just about any stringed instrument, but the mandolin and fiddle are his favorites.
Lily loves to sing, tell really bad jokes; most of which she makes up, which makes them really cute, and most of all she loves to make us laugh. She made this little puppet song up one day during quiet time and came out to show us.
