“My lil Gymnast!” Gary Shirley captioned the Twitpic above, which finds a leotard-clad L grinning from ear to ear while sprawled out on a mat.

In no time, this dancing queen munchkin will be doing flips on the balance beam and sticking a perfect landing on the vault. And all of those grooving skills will be put to good use during floor exercise routines — in due time, of course.
