dancing with *the star*

Headband c/o Her Joyful Studio

I took Mia to her first ever {mommy and me} dance class last week and good grief, my heart could barely handle it! As cheesy as this sounds... I've been dreaming of this day since we found out we were having a girl!! I only found out about the class the morning of, so I rushed home from the gym, found the fluffiest, frilliest outfit in Mia's closet and pulled out her darling sparkly bow headband from Her Joyful Studio... and then my heart proceeded to explode, ha ha! She just looked so dang CUTE!
The best part by far was watching how excited Mia was in class! There was lots of squealing, laughing and "wow"ing, ha ha! Mia loved mimicking the teacher and her little friends, and she actually followed along pretty well! I'm also really excited to teach Mia to listen to her teacher and to follow direction. She's a little young to fully understand, but I'm happy to be getting an early start with her, especially since she isn't in a daycare or preschool! 
During our class Mia got to stretch, run in circles (there's not much else a one and a half year old can do, HA!) shake her little body, make animal sounds (Mia's favorite was growling like a lion!), hula hoop (or in Mia's case, carry the hula hoop around) and do somersaults! Girlfriend was in heaven! We have definitely found our new favorite activity together and I can't wait for her next dance class! Gosh, it really is the little things!!

Oh my goodness could Mia get any cuter!!!!? I doubt it. I love the excitement on her face, the adorable dress, the way shes standing at the bar, everything! I wish you took a video.
She is so beautiful!

How old is she again? My niece, who is 2 and doesn't talk, recently started a dance class with her 4 year old sister and apparently that's what has been opening her up. She's saying more words and socializing more, which is great. There's just something about it!

Caroline Fleenor said...

Nina Robinson said...

Oh my goodness - that outfit! I'm pretty sure my 3 year old self would have worn that skirt for days until my mom forced me to let her wash it. How long was the class? I'm curious how long her attention span lasted.

That outfit is ridiculously adorable! I'm excited just reading this post!! With having just the one car and Chris working so much overtime I just haven't found anything that would work for us. I'm hoping something will turn up eventually though. I mean, come on!! This is the cutest thing ever!

Denise said...

Presley has a dress just like that, only pink! So cute and so fun. I cannot wait until Presley is old enough to do stuff like this!

Lindsay Hilosky said...

Thanks for stopping by my blog! What a sweet post! My three year old just started dance...all by herself! We had previously done a Mommy and Me class but this is the first time ever that I am dropping her off, which was a huge heal for me! But my goodness seeing these little girls in their sweetest dance outfits is definitely enough to make you tear up!
