(A quick Sophie update: She is feeling MUCH better. We’ve stopped all meds. It’s a surprising and rather embarrassing story. Coming soon to your computer screen. )

Lily’s big dance recital was so full of awesome I can hardly describe it.

I was nervous for her. I mean, she’d practiced her routine at the studio time and again, but to do it on a big stage, in front of a crowd, with bright lights glaring is a whole different story. I was sure she’d freeze up.

Boy, was I wrong.

Not only did Lily (at far left) and her “Baby Doll” pals kick butt, they totally stole the show with a routine that combined classical ballet and Justin Bieber-infused booty shaking.

Truly awesome. And I ugly-cried through the whole thing. So proud of my girl.
