Addie's Favorite Day of the Week!

I cannot tell you how very much this Little Monkey loves dance class!
She is super excited and cannot wait to get to class each week.

(the pictures are not the best, but they are taken through a one way mirror)

No matter what is asked of Monkus, she gives 110%.
It may not be perfect form, but her effort more than compensates.

She watches herself in the mirror any chance she is given.

I love how she sweetly stands and waits her turn.

Waiting for further instruction...

This is one of Addie's very favorite parts - and she loves the sound of the tap shoes!

Addie was leaning forward to make sure she had a clear view of herself in the mirror.

Right after her turn doing the forward roll.
She still has a ton of anxiety when it is her turn, and it is a huge relief when her turn is over!
Ms. Amy is fantastic at assisting Addie and I love how she doesn't skip over Addie although she knows Addie couldn't do it without her.

Dance class was over for the night and this Little Monkey was less than thrilled.
She could dance all night long...

Whenever I get a second, I jump over here to check on Addie. Look at her!!! She's becoming such a precious young lady! I am so glad that we were able to meet all those years ago (5-6?) and I was able to see her BLOOM into such a miracle girl.

Jenn, I happened to find your blog this morning and am i glad that I did! I have a 4 yr old girl with microcephaly, just like Addison. She is such a joy to us and her smile and laugh just lights up everything and everybody around her. She still does not crawl or walk yet. She is close to legally blind and has hearing issues too. But I have so much hope for her. Today for some reason, I have been thinking about how my daughter is going to do in the future and the tears started flowing. I just googled something and your blog came up. Been sitting here reading random posts for the last hour or so. It fills my heart with hope and its such a joy to see what a miracle Addison is. She is so lucky to have you for her mom. Thank you for writing your blog. I know it sounds silly, but it feels like I've found a lifelong friend in you and your blog. I will be a regular visitor from now on.
And hey before I forget, I could see so much of my daughter in Addi's pics in your older posts. The nose, the ear - it made me look up my daughters pics from when she was a baby :).
Thanks again, and sending a lot of love and prayers your way.
