New friends

We spent the weekend at the Lake with my grandpa. We got to spend some time with my (are you ready for this..) Grandpa's wife's son's family. Michael and Cassandra have a daughter, Maxine, who is 6 months younger than Alexis. Here is a video that Mike took of the girls dancing to some disco. Love this!

Lil Visitor

Last week Mati and Amy came to visit for the day. They got to spend the night with us so the girls could spend some quality time together. Mati is getting so big and so fun. Tim and I can already tell what great friends Lexi will have with all of her baby girl cousins. Love this photo from that night...

Almost two

Wow, It's really hard to believe but Alexis will be two in a matter of weeks. While we really enjoy watching her grow and learn more every day, I miss my little baby sometimes. This morning when we were walking downstairs to start our day she, out of nowhere, said "Mommy's so pretty." I almost died. I love that little girl.

Our first clue that the big T-W-O is almost here was Ishaan's second birthday party last weekend. Ishaan's mom and I were pregnant together almost the entire time. She had Ishaan six weeks before Alexis was born. Happy 2nd Birthday Ishaan!

A few comparisons

We've been to Ft. Myers Beach twice in the last two years, both times in June. I thought it be fun to see how much Alexis has changed in the last year.

Yes. That is the exact same ice cream shop and bench, both years.

The Lotion

We just got back from a FABULOUS trip to beach and the ocean (or the lotion as Lexi would have it). We spent three great days just as a family at a beach-front resort in Ft. Myers Beach. We really had a good time bonding as a family.

Alexis LOVES the ocean, the seashells and the POOL. She is kind of insane when it comes to the pool these days. Jumping in, going underwater, no fear whatsoever. That scares mom and dad a bit.

After our few days alone, the rest of Tim's family joined us. A big thank you to Matt and Jaimie and Matt's parents for letting us stay in their condo for a few days. It was great to see everyone, especially our Chicago relatives whom we miss daily.

Each night during the first few days of the trip, we went to the pier for some food and entertainment. There were several street performers there, but this guy below really captured Lexi's attention. She still asks "Where is Scary?" almost every night before bed.

We REALLY miss Florida and are hoping and praying that this oil disaster will end soon...Can't wait to go back again!
