Bee is for Ballerina

We arrived about ten minutes early, so Gracie gave Bee a pre-dance class lesson on some of her favorite moves from her class.

They started with a song and then horsies!

The last year and a half of watching Gracie danced paid off for Bee. She instantly put the bean bag on her head and started walking around with it without any prompting from the teacher!

If only I'd captured the giggle that went with this picture!

She loved the ribbon dancing. She started as soon as they were in her hands, regardless of music.

 All tuckered out after a fun dance class. As soon as they were dismissed she threw herself dramatically on the floor and declared "Again! Another one dance class!" She continued that fit all. the. way. home. I think it's safe to say she loved it.

Big Girls!

I know this is a weird place to start a blog post, but you need to know how we got here. I am not in a hurry for Bee to grow up, so the background knowledge is necessary here. 

Gracie woke me up this morning by running into my room and exclaiming "I peed in my bed!" After naps (she had to sleep on a bare bed. I'm just thankful I put a new moisture proof cover on the mattress last week!), the bed was still torn apart and I brought the mattress cover and sheets into the room to put if back together. I pulled the bedrail off to get to the mattress, and Bee pointed out that there's another bedrail between her crib and the wall. "For me! For Bee!" I have tried that bedrail on her crib, and it slips right out but the one on Gracie's bed has a part that goes all the way to the other side of the mattress to keep it more secure. Gracie declared that she doesn't need a rail anymore and Bee was asking and asking to have it on her bed. So, here we go! My little Bee has a big girl bed. And my little Gracie has no bedrail. It eases my mind that Gracie's bed is just a boxspring and mattress on the floor so there's not far for her to fall!

Such a big girl!
