My Baby Gets 'Nastics

Mia was so excited about starting her new 'nastics class today. And really, so was I. We started Mia in gymnastics when she was 16-months old, but I didn't register for the following session because she just didn't have the attention span. I knew I wanted to try again when she turned three, which is how old Leila was when she started. Well... her third birthday came and went and a certain mommy just now got around to registering her. (Yeah, it's that second child syndrome.) With Leila sometimes having soccer 2-3 days a week and all of us having AWANA every Wednesday night, I just didn't want another commitment. But Mia loves digging in her drawers and pulling out her "nastics" leotards, so I knew we were overdue. I gave her a choice on soccer or gymnastics class and she quickly responded with an excited, "Nastics!!"

I think she likes it. What do you think? :)
BTW, I was looking back on old photos from her first set of classes and I am just blown away by how much she has changed. Click here or here if you want to stroll down memory lane with me.

'Nastics! I love gymnastics too - and that is exactly what my younger niece called it at Mia's age - too cute :)

You guys seem super busy, but how can you resist that face of joy on the trampoline?

I am headed back to NY for the big American Girl show, but I hope you all have a great weekend!

My son, adopted from Vietnam 2 years ago, is almost 3 and began tumbling class just this last month. He enjoys it, too. I love your blog and was wondering how you get your pictures to be so large. When I upload mine, I choose large but they are not. When I try to enlarge them by clicking and dragging, the pixels get all messed up and it blurs. Any help? mommyfortuan@yahoo.com
