Sweet Cheeks Short and Sweet

Here is our dear little
SweetCheeks
all dressed and ready for dance class.
Optical illusion-
Which is bigger-her head or her bow?


I watched her dance last night.
She is so happy -no matter what she is doing.
She just makes my heart smile.
She can twirl and pirouette with the best of them.
And to think-we used to call her our little
DANCING BEAR.
You can click on the image to go to 
Amber Alexander's website which is full
of wonderful whimsical animal renderings.
Prepare to be delighted.

I guess that is better than 
Dancing Bare!

I imagine SweetCheeks gives everything her all. The most important thing is that she enjoys it. She looks lovely.

I would love a video of her dancing...

Pam Kessler said...

How cute! I have a photo of my mother taken in the 1930's and she has a GINORMOUS bow on her head too. Big bow heads must come into style every now and then!

Patty Patterson said...

She is super cute. And haven't you heard that saying.... the bigger the bow, the better the Mom. They have it on shirts and bows and onesies and things in our area and big bows are all the rage. I prefer smaller ones on babies, though.

Pat said...

Sweet photo...love the bow and the smile!

Tammy Chrzan said...

Haha... I think they are about the same size!
She is just adorable!
I love little girls all dressed up!
I hope you have a great weekend Diana! Much love to you, Tammy

How sweet she looks! I took dance classes while growing up and fell in love with dance! If she stays with it, it will really pay off. It will help her have a good body image, and self confidence. It's a wonderful way to express yourself and feel connected to something that keeps you on the "right track" in life. I hoped to have a girl one day so I could put her in dance, but it never happened. Now, I have to just live with my memories. I know it was fun to watch her. I love seeing little ones in their recital at the end of the year!

Gert said...

OMGosh, she is adorable! I remember my granddaughter when she danced in her little pink tou-tou (sp), but no pretty bow on her head! I love it!

Blessings,
Gert

Susie said...

Diana, I think SC has a happy heart. I love how she enjoys herself. Blessings to all of you. xoxo,Susie

She sure has a 10,000 watt smile! A real cutie pie.

Sandy said...

Diana, you always make me smile! Love that little sweet cheeks. Her smile is contagious! Nothing like a bundle of light wrapped up in a tiny little granddaughter to make your heart sing with joy! She's delightful and that bow is pretty big!

Such a gift to have a grandchild that always makes you smile. Seems some people are just born smiling and happy... and the others...well never mind. :)
I had no idea you had been to Paris! Wow what a trip. LOL funny story.
Have a wonderful weekend!

She is such a live wire, waiting to see a video of her ballet preview.

The Refeathered Roost said...

Sweet cheeks is adorable! Ah the world of dance. I have a dancer too, except mine is almost 20 now! Yikes! I still love watching her dance. There's something about watching our loved ones do what they love...warms the heart.

Busy Bee Suz said...

I danced bare once...I ended up preggers.
She is a cutie pie; I hope those other dancers aren't too jealous.

Coastal Cottage Dreams said...

Lucky Sweet Cheeks, to dance as a little girl is so much fun I had two left feet.

I love big bows :) she is adorable!

I also love this artist. My daughter, Abbey bought me a print of a little bird a few years ago when I showed he how sweet it was.

Mary@mydogsmygardenandmary said...

Oh that SC she just melts your heart.
She ought to be in movies - she is such a cutie pie.
Have a great weekend.

Maureen Wyatt said...

She sure does rock that bow! None of your granddaughters like to fade into the woodwork, do they? Let's all say a prayer that she never loses her enthusiasm for life.

Perfectly Printed said...

Bonnie said...

I laughed so hard at your comment about SweetCheeks bow. My girls are grown now (in their twenties) but they still complain about the size of the bows I put in their hair. Funny, how some things stay the same over time. Sweet Cheeks is adorable with or without the bow!

sparkle100-havealook.blogspot.com said...

oh you must get a video of her dancing on here one day.

Oh my she is so much like my Granddaughter when she was this age.

Never still. She used to visit us. And do cartwheels all the time. Back flips in the pool. I was going through my cds last week and here she was never a dull moment.

So you have a real people person.

oh the bow is cute.

Most babies wear them that size.
So Sweet Cheeks looks very glamours.
