Zadie had her first dance recital this weekend, and let me tell you, nothing compares to 3 and 4 year old ballerinas. I was amazed when she got up on that stage in front of hundreds of people and danced her little heart out.

It was chaos backstage. A year ago, this would have sent Z into a full meltdown. Now that she's BIG she stayed calm and danced on.
We were, of course, not there in time to get good seats. These pictures would be better if we hadn't been a mile away in the balcony.
Really, the biggest surprise of the night was Rosie. She sat for 2 hours captivated by the dancers. She watched every routine and tried to follow along with the dancers. I see a pas de deux in their future!
Of course every star needs a bouquet of flowers to celebrate their performance. Zadie loved her roses and daisies. She is such a little ray of sunshine. Can't wait for many more performances to come.
