I don't know but maybe its this beautiful spring thunderstorm we are having, but I am totally being a sap right now. I just really can't get over how much Alexis has changed in the past 9 months. She is getting so big and such a personality. She went from sleeping all the time and needing me (and her daddy) for everything to crawling all over the place and babbling constantly and becoming somewhat independent. I am excited to see how much she continues to change, but really.... don't grow up too too fast.. I love this age, right now.
We spent the weekend in Chicago visiting Jaimie and Matt and Alexis's soon-to-be first cousin that is growing in Aunt Jaimie's tummy! They are expecting their first baby, due in late October. We couldn't be more excited and yes, that means Alexis will have a new baby 1st, 3rd and 5th cousin by the end of this year (see the previous posts for other baby announcements). We hadn't seen them in a few weeks, so we decided to take a trip to Chi-town to visit. We planned it so we drove when Alexis was sleeping at night.. it was good plan. We took a ton of pictures on Saturday at the Arboretum. I think Alexis really enjoyed being outside. Here are a few more....(check out facebook for the rest)
We celebrated Easter yesterday with our families and Alexis thoroughly enjoyed her first swing ride in her new swing from the Easter bunny. We went to church at Arnold Baptist with my family, went back to their house for our Easter baskets, went to Grandma Denbow's house for lunch, then Tim's family's house for dinner. All in all a fun-filled day. Here are some pictures...
We took Alexis to her first Cardinals game last night. She got to hang out with Blake and Amy, who just found out that they are having a little girl too! She really enjoyed all of the action and people everywhere. She obviously gets her love of sporting events from her daddy. Although, I doubt he would sleep through 3 innings of major league baseball like she did.
It has been a while since we last wrote to update you all on Ms. Alexis. She is amazing, changing every day. She crawls all over the place, pulls herself up and walks along the couch. She will be 9 months old in a little over a week. The photo above was taken on Saturday at a bridal shower. She is wearing one of her Easter dresses from Grandma and G-Diddy Timmerman. And just because, below is a photo of one of my favorite activities with Lexi, Bath Time!
