little dancer

Ella's tiny foot was the first thing I saw on her the day she was born. The nurses upon discovering her club foot whisked her away from my exhausted self to further examine her. As I waited expectantly to hold my baby girl all I could see was her tiny curled foot. Finally they brought this perfect little creature to me and it was love. It doesn't seem that long ago but suddenly I found myself strolling through the shoe shop to find the tiniest little ballet slippers for my big girl who is about to have her first dance class. So with Naya wailing because she wanted to be a dancer too, I fit Ella's shoes on her and she beamed with pride.
