My greatest love meets my first love

Lydia saw her first play today. At 16 months I didn't think she'd make it through more than a few minutes...but I was wrong. She made it through the whole play. She was really frightened of backstage. It spooked her bad. The costumes and the sets confused her...but the play itself mesmerized her. She loved the colours and pointed at all the changes in scenes and babbled to me excitedly as she watched. And I was so happy. Hopefully one day backstage won't scare her so much and she'll ba able to enjoy that more...but for now being in the audience is enough. Seeing her was magic to my soul.

Waiting for the tech hold to end so we can see the show!

Lydia wears her Vans often it's true...but she wore a dress that day. And obsessed as I am with my Vans, even I don't wear my Vans with a dress I figured she's wear her matching purple "Mary Janes" with her purple cord dress.
