the paper mama photo challenge: talented:

heck yes, it is paper mama photo challenge time! and i knew EXACTLY (well, between two) what photo i was entering for 'talented'.
this was taken at zoe's very first ballet recital back in december of 2007 when zoe was 3 (about 10 days away from 4)...so long ago!
she was the only one to do the routine, the other two kids just stood there. one with her dress over her head, lol. watching zoe was hands down the cutest thing i had ever seen.
this was such a proud moment for me. i was seriously balling while trying to video record it. she was so cute in her leo and skirt with her hair all curled like that (it is not fun thing curling a 3 year olds hair who happens to have the most sensitive hair follicles ever.)
i have this photo blown up huge, and i can honestly say it might be my ALL TIME favorite photo of zoe. there is just so much candid joy in this photo. i wish i could go back and hold onto these precious moments a little longer-i can't believe how fast she is growing or that she is a first grader now!

here is my second favorite photo from that day. can you see why it was hard to choose?
