Emerson loves to dance. She has loved music and been a little dancer since before she could walk. Her passion for dancing has continued to grow with each day. Just last week Emerson spent a good 30 minutes twirling around the house saying, "mommy, I just love to dance". It was precious.
Her first dance class could not have started at a more perfect time.
This morning when Emerson woke up, the first thing she said was, "I go to dance class today!". To say that she was thrilled would be an understatement.
As soon as I put her tights and leotard on her she would not stop twirling and dancing. She was just so happy. She kept looking at herself in the mirror saying, "I am such a pretty ballerina".
We got to class and she turned a little shy at first when she realized that mommy was not staying in the class with her. I assured her that I would be right out side the room and would be there to pick her up when class was finished. When she saw the other girls being brave and going with their teacher, she got brave too.
I tried my best to sit at a cafe table with the other parents and enjoy the quiet time, but I could not help but peek in the window several times to see what was happening in there. Most of what they did this first class was practice walking in their tap and ballet shoes and learning the stretching routine. It was still pretty cute though!
When class was finished, the teacher walked them all out the door to a room full of eager mommies. The girls were all beaming with pride and anxious to show off the stickers that they got. Emerson could not stop talking about all the things she learned in class today.
I think this dance class is perfect timing with Ashton coming in a few weeks. This is something that is super special and is just for her. She loves it and I really think it is going to continue to help her to grow and blossom.

Getting a fancy style after the cut was all finished. Emerson loved getting mousse put in her hair.
She got two pink sparkle stars put on her cheek when she was all finished.
Avoiding taking a picture with mommy. She had fun, but is still a two-year-old after-all.

The last week of summer is here. We have lots of fun things planned this week and then next week it is back to school! I can't believe it is already back to school time (mainly because that means we are days away from having another baby!) Even though Emerson has really enjoyed this summer and the free time, I think she is super excited to go back to school. She will have a new teacher and lots of new friends to meet.
Daddy braved the heat on Saturday and took Emerson on the Forest Park Train. They went on the first ride of the morning. Emy loves the train!

Emerson, you are such a big girl now. I cannot even fathom how you got to be so grown up. We had a big summer! You transitioned to a big girl bed, became potty trained, gave up your baba and matured so much. The best thing is that you loved every single step and change. You love that you are becoming a big girl too.
You are so excited to become a big sister. You are always talking about things that you are going to teach Ashton. When you see a newborn baby you instantly swoon. You are just completely in love with babies and I know you will adore your brother.

Anyways, I wanted to share something awesome that I found. If you have photoshop or elements or lightroom, you have to check out this blog. There are tons of free editing actions that you can download. What is an editing action? Basically someone else has gone through all the steps of editing a photograph in a certain way and they save the steps into one action. When you download the action, instead of having to go through all the steps to edit, you just have to select the action and it makes all the changes for you. It rocks!
