Just hangin' out with daddy on the couch playing with her snail. She was very proud of herself as she quickly learned how to make the snail play music. Each time she hit a button, she would make noise and look in my direction to be sure I was watching her!
Last night, during our tub, Rob and I rolled Alexa to her side like always to wash her back.
She decided that wasn't good enough and proceeded to roll right to her tummy.Here is where she stayed for a very long time. I had enough time to get the video camera and take some footage,my camera, Rob's camera, and our cell phone to send pics.
Alexa had a blast kicking her feet and splashing her hands in the water.
I think she watched to much of the installation of our new pool!
Is she trying to tell us she is ready to go swimming?
Of course we couldn't have a moment without some spitting up. Regardless when we give Alexa a tubby, she spits up during it and right after she is all dried and lotioned up...without fail!
Alexa's new favorite game..."peek-a-boo".
"Ha Ha Daddy. I got my arms and legs free tonight!"
The doctor could not believe how active and alert Alexa is. She really enjoyed her exam. She tugged and pulled on everything in site, including the nurses hair...then proceeded to laugh. The doctor kept asking us if "she is always like this"? "Is she always this alert"? Our answer was "Yup!" to all of his questions. He proceeded to laugh at all she was doing and inform us that she is going to keep us very busy and very shortly we will be chasing her from one end of the house to the other. He could not believe how active she was. He then added, "I can't wait to see her in a couple of months...even years! Watch out"!
He was floored when we told him she is eating 40+ ounces of formula a day. He did tell us that we could start giving her Baby Oatmeal once a day along with her cereal. So now she eats oatmeal for breakfast and cereal for dinner. Boy does she LOVE the oatmeal. I don't think she missed a drop of it. We even had to make more as she inhaled the first bowl we made.
After our morning nap, we decided to get Alexa dressed and try...
yes try and get an Easter picture.
Alexa noticed a shiny present next to her.
She then proceeded to try and eat the wrapping.
She enjoyed the noise it made when she touched it!
"Is this for me?"
Since Alexa woke up very happy from her nap, I thought we should try and get her picture taken before eating...just a thought since I know how much she spits up when she eats. (Not to mention she is wearing a "hand wash only dress" - yes call me crazy what was I thinking buying a "hand wash only" dress with a child who has acid reflux.
I can honestly say though, I did not read the tag until after I had the dress home and price tags cut.
Well lets just say, my motherly instinct did not work. She was obviously very hungry as alls she did was try and eat her dress.
So, after many attempts, and knowing we were about to have 16+ people in the house any minute, Rob and I decided we better feed this child and try for re-takes later this week - after I hand wash the dress to remove her water marks from all the sucking she was doing on her nice Easter dress.
