First Dance Recital

I don't mean to brag or anything, but....Sophie had her first dance recital today and she was awesome!  We've been so incredibly busy preparing for a holiday party lately that we neglected to mention anything about her upcoming performance to her.  Today, we got her dressed and she assumed that we were just going to her regular dance class.  On the way to the recital, she fell asleep in the car.  When we arrived, we barely got there on time and I dragged her in from the car, peeled off her coat and left her with her teacher.  A few minutes later, Sophie groggily walked onto the stage in front of a couple hundred people and when the music started...she danced!  No crying, no shyness...she was all business.  That's my girl!

Posing at home before the recital.

Unfortunately, the video quality is horrible and the glare of the lights makes it almost impossible to see her.  She's the second dancer from the right and she did a great job!  We were so proud of her.


  1. I'm so proud of Sophs!!


  2. She is just like her mom... loving the spotlight. The next thing you know, she's going to walk out on stage and say, "Who's ready to LAUGH?"
