After seeing how much fun Winnie had at Citygarden, Alexis just had to check it out. What a fun place! She got to play in the water and the fountains.. It was a great afternoon. We also went and saw some turtles (one of her new words) at the zoo after we dried off. Tim and I love our Fridays off together. She is so much fun.
Our busy weekend of fun started out with Amy's baby shower on Saturday morning. Amy's mother-in-law graciously hosted in Edwardsville. We all had such a great time and Lexi was really sweet and the star of the show. It probably was a good thing, though, that she slept through the gift opening.. I'm sure she wouldv'e loved to help. ;) Jaimie's shower is next,, we can't wait!
Alexis is ONE. I can't believe I just wrote that. This year has flown by and we have made so many memories. Its hard to imagine what we did with our time before Alexis. She is such a blessing.
We had an amazing birthday party for her at Aunt Kelley's clubhouse in Fenton. There were nearly 60 people there to celebrate with her. As you can see, she loved her cake and all of the attention that she got that evening. Alexis got many, many gifts including books, stuffed animals, and scooters. She is currently in love with her Disney princess scooter and talking Elmo. Thank you to everyone that made her birthday and her first year of life so so special.
We just got back from a great family trip to Ft Myers Beach, Florida. Alexis loved every minute of the beach and the ocean; at one point we had to stop her from crawling INTO the water. We mostly stayed ocean or pool side with some great afternoon naps in between. She is also did so wonderfully on her first flights. I couldn't get over how good she was (I was slightly worried that she would want to crawl around the plane). We'd like to thank Nini and Papa, Danny, Bobby and Jackie for coming along too. It wouldn't have been the same without you.
