She even looks a little like Mary Lou Retton.

Saturday was Sabrina's first gymnastics class.

Oh my god, y'all, she totally kicked ass.

This picture was taken just after she completed her first back flip dismount. We have a point and shoot camera, so we tend to miss the action sometimes. Sue us.

Look at her teetering on the edge of that trampoline? FEARLESS.

Like any pro gymnast, she spent time contemplating her next move. Looking at how she can pull it off, thinking about her landing...she's serious.

She dabbled in the rhythmic gymnastics portion and really excelled with what I call "the rings". I'm not sure what they are actually called, but they look like rings, so "the rings" seemed quite appropriate. She seemed to find the rings very entertaining. We won't discuss the tantrum that ensued when someone tried to remove the rings from her grasp, but let's just say all artists are passionate about their craft, right?

The speed at which she moves is simply phenomenal.

Best day ever!!

Just so no one thinks we're forcing her into one discipline, below is proof that we are trying other hobbies. Like modeling. She seems to have this one down pat, too. Note the detached look, as if she doesn't care. She does. She totally does.

I call this one the "Angelina". As in Jolie for those of you not obsessed with pop culture (who are you?).

Smooches, people!

Since she is serious about her craft you can tell her they're called "hoops" not "rings" :)

She's got talent. Maybe they should start a show "America's Babys Got Talent". She could be one of their first competitors with all of her skills. Beautiful little girl!
