Ella is back for year 2 of dance! She loved it so much and asked all summer when she could go back and see Mrs. Melva. Ella has a lot of new little girls in her class this year and on her first day back, she got to be the leader to show them the ropes! This was super fun for me to watch because I don't know if you remember my "runaway swan" post from when she started dance class last year...but let's just say she's come a long way :) I love watching her participate in things she enjoys and takes pride in. Here she is showing the class how to sit like a dancer...
If you turn the music off at the bottom you can hear the video better. It's pretty sweet. My sweet Ella was asked the color of her butterfly and of course she chose rainbow ;)
I love that Mrs. Melva teaches the girls dance through stories, manners through dance, and that GOD gave them them their gift! Win win win!
E is a sparkly little gem. She lights up our lives in every way! She is so special to us. As our first born, she taught us how to be a mommy and a daddy! She was quite the little teacher too and has seemingly covered all the bases so we were very prepared for number 2! Her baby blues melt our hearts and she is a beautiful girl from the inside out. She is at her best in a fancy dress, heels, and a tiara which makes her a true princess.
L is our middle man. Weighing in at a studly 9lbs 4oz at birth, he has earned a few nicknames such as tiny, little dude, and hoss. Just like most Italian males, under his beefy and handsome exterior is a sensitive little man. We are fools for this boy in every way. As our first boy, our love for him is so unique and special. We have fallen head over heels for him! E is so crazy about him, I’m sure he thinks he has 2 mommies!
M is our littlest lovely! He is our sleepy snuggle bug. He is small but mighty and all things magical. From the sweet smell of his fuzzy little head to the tips of his sweet little baby toes, he is perfect in every way. We are over the moon for our new little tiny guy. E and L just can't get enough of him. He is everyones baby! He's loved to the max!
Olli is our 4th little lovely. Our cherry on top of it all! She surprised us but we were thrilled. She was the other little girl her brother and sister had been asking for! She lives up to all her names. Olli Mae is just a beauty and so peaceful. Our itty Olli or Bitsy is tiny but fierce. She is strong and packs quite a punch! And our Ollipop is sweeter than pie. She completes our little family! She is truly our real live baby Dolli!
I am a 30ish year old wife of an amazing husband. We met in the summer of 2004 and have been inseperable ever since! I am also a mommy of three little lovelies. Our sweet baby Ella was born in October of 2007. Our middle man, Luca, came to join us on our crazy journey in August of 2010. Mighty Milo is our latest lovely joining us in November of 2013! I love to scrapbook, blog, clean, watch movies, and hang with friends and family. Mike loves to read and exercise. Mainly, we love to love on our sweet babes! They are the best thing we have ever done.
