Here is Alexis in her Bumbo seat eating rice cereal. She started cereal about a week ago and isn't too found of it yet, but I'm sure we will get there.. Now if I could just get her to stop pushing the food back out of her mouth once its inserted...
Here are a couple of Alexis's 3 month photos from Sears. She did such a great job smiling and dealing with mom and dad changing her outfits several times. I can't believe it has already been four months... she is the very best thing that has ever happened to me and Tim. If you haven't seen her lately she is developing quite the personality, laughing and smiling constantly. We started on cereal last week and she is taking to it slowly, but we'll get there.... hopefully she will hit the sleeping through the night milestone here pretty soon. Anyways, thanks for reading and keeping up with my baby. :)
A few weeks ago, Alexis and I met with Cary and Winnie at this great little coffee shop in Maplewood that has fun baby stuff. The girls had a lot of fun playing together and Cary and I had fun catching up on mommy stuff. Winnie is about 3 months older than Alexis, so Cary is a great resource for what to expect with Alexis. BTW, taking a photo of two babies is ridiculously difficult, lol.
We spent Halloween handing out candy to the trick or treaters at my parents' house and visiting Grandma and Grandpa T. I think Alexis had fun dressing up in the hats and bib from Aunt Jaimie and hanging out with Uncle Danny and Jackie while they passed out candy. I can't wait to take her out around the neighborhood next year!
The other night Tim came home after a long days work and fell asleep with Alexis sleeping in his arms... When dreaming about having a family with him, this was one of the moments I looked forward to... dreams do come true!
Last weekend Amy, Alexis and I met Jaimie in Bloomington, IL, which is about half way between our homes. We had such a great time having our girl time and Alexis did great in her first night in a hotel. We are hoping that we can make these trips a little more frequent.
