Eulalie: The morning of her first ballet class. I asked her to sit on our gorgeous new Marigold rug from Armadillo & Co to put her little dance shoes on ($2 score from the op-shop!). She LOVED the class (and I might have nearly died from the cuteness...)

Marguerite: (confession: This photo was totally taken a couple of weeks ago!) I don't get much one-on-one time with her... it's almost like she just comes along for the (crazy) ride. She's always on my hip as I go about the busyness of the everyday. I love it when we get a moment to lay together on the bed, getting to know each other a little more. How gorgeous is her little onesie, a gift from a treasured friend ...nothing sweeter than a baby in pointelle.

 Linking up with Practising Simplicity.

  2. What a beautiful photo of your little dancer and such a great op-shop score. My little girl started ballet this year and absolutely loved it… but the next week a fire broke out in the mine next to the dance studio and it's only just on the verge of being put out. Hopefully next term we'll have more luck!

  14. I'm a little jealous of that rug - I was looking at getting one of those for a while. Although I don't really know that it suits our style ... but it suits you to a tee! And that is a beautiful photo of your tiny ballerina. As for Margeurite ... she just gets more and more divine every week! Kellie xx

  15. Are those jazz shoes I spy? My Lottie does jazz ballet. She was very particular about it - she didn't want 'ordinary ballet' she wanted 'jaaaaazzzzzz ballet'. I'm glad Eulalie likes it so. And, for reals, two bucks!? SCORE! x

  16. Gorgeous photos. And I do very much understand where you're coming from with getting alone time with a number two baby. Mine is also a constant companion on our big kid adventures.
