Absolute Cuteness - Pictures

I LOVE her gummy smiles!!

Hopper was "helping" with the laundry. He was soooo excited to find this tiny little sock. So perfect for a tiny little weiner dog.

Mommy said to release it and like a good boy, he did just that. If only I had the time to teach him to put it in the basket. That could come in really handy when Lexi's older. =)

These bunny slippers are sooo cute but unfortunately she was only able to wear them a few times. Apparently she's going to have ape feet like her Aunt Ginger. LOL

Even when she's unhappy she's adorable. I will be doing a follow on post to this one that will have nothing but videos. There will be a video showing exactly why she is in such a state of distress.

A few days before I went back to work, we got to meet up with a few of the girls for lunch. I thoroughly enjoyed it for many reasons but two big ones 1) I finally got to eat a warm meal and 2) I got a heads up as to what kind of mess was awaiting my return.

Lexi is finally beginning to enjoy the swing at two months. It's perfect to use when she's fighting sleep. She'll fuss for a few minutes at first then she's out like a light. It's heaven sent when your arms and back are about to give out.

These next two pictures make me laugh. She's got these crazy eyes. I've got a video I'll publish in the follow on post that shows why she has these crazy eyes. I was laughing sooooo hard.

She's still too small for her bouncer but it doesn't stop me from putting her in it with the support of a blanket. Of course I'm right there at all times so don't worry Grammy, she's not in any danger. She loves all of the toys on it. I can't wait for her to be able to reach them herself.

Playdate with John

A few days before I went back to work, Lexi had a playdate with John. They were born on the same day within just a few short hours of each other!! It's really quite funny because John's mom and I took the same Bradley course and we just knew that was going to be the case. Anyways, the playdate was more for the mommy's so we could swap stories and pointers. It was great talking to someone who is going through the exact same thing at the same time! Hopefully we'll get to do it again in the future when the kids are older and can interact.

New Year's

Our New Year's was VERY different this year. At midnight we were celebrating because we had just put Lexi to bed and she was actually staying asleep!! Later that day we went on a walk in the neighborhood. It was freezing but a really pretty day.

We got Lexi all bundled and since this was our first walk together I had to bring the camera to document it. =)

She was not so sure about being out and about despite the sunny weather.

Ever wonder where your christmas trees or paper products or lumber come from? Well take a look. It's kind of depressing but they will replant trees so they can grow just to be chopped again. Kind of like cattle.

And because it was such a nice day we got a great view of Mt. Ranier from the neighborhood. It's just soooo beautiful here!
