The witches are out!

I put out Halloween decorations while Lexie was napping and when she woke up she had a ball exploring the new items in the house. This was her favorite and giggled as she wore it through the house!

Tough Spill

Yesterday was a rough day for Alexa. For some reason she kept falling. It started while we were outside playing. We have a front step and she was climbing down it and somehow lost her grip and fell onto her face.....it left some scratches. She was having spinach ravioli's for dinner so pardon the mess, but I wanted to get a picture of the scratch.

Family reunion

This last weekend was Taylor's baptism AND a surprise party for my mom and dads 40 anniversary. They were totally surprised, had no idea, my dad even got teary eyed about the whole thing......I am so happy!!! The best part was Stephen and Holly and Jared and Angie were able to come from FAR away and we are so thankful they did. We had a family picture that we haven't had for about 8 or 9 years, it was AWESOME!!!! The worst part of the weekend is that I thought Taylor's baptism started at 330 but it started at 3.......we were SOOOO late. So late in fact that we had on jeans and didn't have time to change. Unfortunately Alex and Alexa missed the actual baptism part.....I'm so sorry.

Too Small

I came into the room and found Lexie in her swing from when she was an infant. She was having a ball even though it couldn't have been comfortable!

18 Months

Wow, has it really been that long. Our darling is 1 and 1/2 years old today. Here are her stats....

She is 33 1/2 inches tall. and 26.2 lbs. She has 4 bottom teeth, 4 top teeth and 3 molars.

Her whole life she has loved sleep (from my side of the family). We'll say "it's night night time" and she'll grab her blanky and binki, give everyone a kiss goodbye and will almost be giggling with happiness as we lay her down. It's always been 3-4 hours after she woke up last and was really like clock work for us. She woke up at 9a and went to bed by 730p with 2 naps in between.......until about a month ago. For some reason she is no longer interested in her naps or going down for the night. She isn't acting tired, in fact she is usually bouncing off the walls. So we just wait until she seems tired. She wakes up in the morning around 8:30 and takes her nap around 330/400. That puts her to bed aroun 9pm. I know it's time for her to stop taking as many naps, but what about mommy time ;) Whatever will I do now???

She loves to.......
* "help" in everything we are doing.
* be outside playing with the dirt.
* swim in the tub. She'll stay in there for hours.
* feed you her food.....she likes sharing
* Play with her baby and hug and kiss it
* climb on EVERYTHING.
* help with the dishes
* copy every move/action we do
* sing and dance

We love her so much.
