Okay I admit it, not the best photo in the world, but in my excitement of seeing Elle dancing in her tutu on the 1st of January 2011, I just had to get her picture. Ashleigh & Danielle bought her this Jolly Jumper for Christmas and she loves it, her little feet barely touch the ground and she is like a twirly bird in the wind and the smile on her face melts me.
Twirling and dancing in the warm summer air she loves the freedom, and her beautiful little chubby legs are getting stronger by the day. Oh my, my cheeks are sore with smiling just watching Elle dance. My little ballerina.
Her tiny feet barely touch the ground and she is off flying again, oh the freedom and potential of a baby well loved and protected from the evil in this world is endless. My greatest hope is that my baby Princess will know this love, this freedom.
My year 2011 is a different one for me. Many changes this year and the realisation that some friends are friends, real and with the best intentions, until circumstances change. Then what do I do, what do you do? it isn't an easy question and sometimes others make the choices for me. Like no phone calls just for the purpose of idle chat, that changes quickly. Invitations to birthdays etc., missed oh well so be it, it is an interesting time for us. As our lives have changed in the last 18 months, our friends and interests and honest beliefs have changed. So many empty promises and believed untruths have been spoken and now we will unravel the lies from the truth. The outcome will be interesting and the future a blank canvas, it will be painted in pain and honesty, and truth, faults and failure, accomplishment and hopes and we will walk into the future as ourselves not what others have wanted us to be. It will be an interesting year for us and I am excited. Come along for the ride please......
