Amy, Alexis's second cousin on Tim's side, comes to visit every once and while to work from our house and hang with me and Alexis. She came one day last week and we discovered just how much Alexis likes the bright computer screen. I'm sure she was helping Amy get a ton of work done :)
Marino loves his little sister! Today we had a great visit from our Parents as Teachers educator. She was very impressed by Alexis's abilities, from holding her head up, to using her legs and smiling and laughing. She couldn't believe how alert she was. She even said that Alexis was doing things that a four month old does. We are very proud :)
Is it just me or does she look like a baby ninja?? :) We really had fun Saturday watching Uncle Bobby march in the Affton Days parade. Alexis watched in amazement as the marchers marched by. Great job Uncle Bobby playing those drums!!
Since I waited 2 whole months to start this blog.. I figured I'd catch up with some photos. Here is a good compare and contrast photo set to see just how big she has gotten in only 2 months. I think her head (well, her brain b/c we all know how smart she is) has doubled in size.
This is how Alexis and I spend our mornings. She sits on her boppy in the bathroom floor while I'm getting ready for the day. She usually entertains herself pretty well for a good 20 minutes or so. Its funny how you learn little tricks to make things easier as you go along.
Today is Alexis' 2 month birthday and we are celebrating with her first blog. She is such a joy to have in our lives and I can't wait to see how she changes each day. We celebrated today by having lunch with Gretchen, Dommie, Nat and Maddy, visiting mommy's Webster friends, having a mommy photo shoot and by visiting Grandma and Grandpa Timmerman, Mama Nini and Uncle Bobby. Here is a photo from our photo shoot.
