So many firsts

The road to recovery brought many firsts this weekend. Emme had her first pre-ballet class and seemed to really enjoy it. The age range changed so we may need to move her to the earlier class which is mommy & me. My only issue is that she DOES separate so even though I'd love to be there with her...you get the idea. The teacher felt we should give her another week to see if she catches on. I don't want her to be the solo 2 year old so we will probably move to the earlier class the following week. MP took us on an adventure to Baltimore for her first baseball game. The trip was smooth and Em approved of the accommodations at the Inter-Continental Harbor Court. I was worried that this was her first hotel since China but she did well. She liked Camden Yards and got a first timer "kit", wore her baseball hat backwards and seemed to have a good time. You can't see but her hat says "Single & Fabulous". She ate pizza, clapped for the Twins and yelled HOORAY. She even got to wear her "Banana Baby" onesie from Auntie Kris for the ride down.
