Our Future Olympian

Stella began taking gymnastics a couple of weeks ago. She is attending "Mommy and Me" classes at a gym in Metairie. The class is open to kids age 18 months and up, so we fudged a little on her age so that we would not miss out on the first few weeks of the fall session. (Just wait until she is old enough for little league....I'm sure we'll be forging a birth certificate then.) Here are a few shots of Stella in action... She loves to slide and always says, "Whee! Slide!"
She is a natural at the balance beam...
The class has not been without its challenges. Stella does not really understand the concept of jumping yet. She says, "Bounce!" and her upper body jumps, but her feet don't. She also does not always wish to follow the class agenda, preferring to plan her own routine. But most importantly, doesn't she look precious in that pink leotard?
