17 Months Old

17 Months Old

Where has the time gone? My baby has
her first 4 Wheeler and is old enough
to drive it all by herself.

It's scary for me to think and say this, but Alexa
has absolutely no fear these days. In her eyes,
the sky is the limit. What is amazing to me is how
much she learns each day.

Her vocabulary
increases daily as she repeats things we say and
is putting 2 and 3 words together now.

She is very determined.
When she wants something,
she will go to the extreme to figure out
how to get it or make it work.

She is the light of our lives!

Obsessed with Slides

We don't have our real play-set just yet.
I am still trying to design the one I want as the
last quote I received was for over $10,000.

Needless to say, I was told to go back to the
drawing board. I am trying to make some
decisions quickly though, because this thing
below, isn't going to cut it much longer.
"Here I come Mommy."

"One, two, threeeeee."

Tractor Ride

Going outside these days, results in a walk
to the shed, lots of banging on the shed door, and
screaming "cactor"... a.k.a. tractor.

Alexa quickly figured out that she has to "try" and
lift the handle to open the door.

And then she climbs aboard.

With the nicer weather these days, the tractor has
had many miles around the driveway!

When mommy has had enough, I tell Alexa that
the tractor is all done. So Alexa puts her hands
up and says "all done, bye bye cactor"
with lots of waving.
