My Bursting Heart

I am so proud of Alex I can't contain myself. She did her first performance with her new singing group and this was her solo. She sang to a sold out crowd at the Scera. Look how little she is on that big stage. Look how confident she is. This is one thing in her life that doesn't need nagging reminders to do well. She just loves it. And I love LOVE watching her! My heart bursts! Picture an ├╝ber-proud pregnant lady doing the Ugly Cry on the front row... That was me. The Mom. I realize now how my mom must've felt watching her kids excel at something. It's moments like these I wish she were here. Because I know she would have LOVED it too. And we would both be sitting there doing the Ugly Cry together.

Thank you, Alex. I love you so much.

She sang beautifully! I am so glad I got to hear that. What a little star you have on your hands, and yes, I would have been balling my eyes out too.

What I LOVE about her is that she can belt something out like that, and play in the creek in Em's backyard. Talented and adventurous, and not afraid to get dirty! LOVE IT! You are awesome Alex!
