Alexsa loves the camera. Its almost impossible to get a shot of her anymore, they seem to usually turn out like this:
Gotta love it. :)

2010-01-27 Pic of the Day!

I can officially say that Alexsa is a walker!  She walks all over the place like a little drunken sailor. Its adorable!  So tonight before her bath I thought, How cute she would be walking around all nudy booty?
(like a Johnson and Johnson commercial.) Well as soon as I put her on the carpet she started peeing! It was just a little blip, so I didn't think much of it.  I continued my quest to get a picture of her walking in the buff. Then 20 seconds later she just started GOING.  On my Mom's carpet. I couldn't help but start laughing. I had the water running for the bath, a naked baby walking around willy-nilly, and now I have pee on the carpet and me laughing harder and harder trying to figure out how to simultaneously clean up the pee, take a picture of my adorable baby nekkid, and prevent her from running into the bathroom unsupervised while I sop up her mishap.  This is what i ended up with:


I think I got a picture of her stepping in it.

The weather was so beautiful today!  We walking over to the YMCA to check out their playground.  It kind of sucked, especially for such youngin's as Alexsa, but at least they had a swing :)
She loves the swing!

Then later that day, Alexsa got her first shiner.  I was doing dishes and she was in the living room w/ Barry.  I heard a bang and then a cry.  Poor thing!

20101-01-09 Pic of the Day/11 Months!

Can you believe she's 11 months old?? I'm just amazed at how fast she's growing up. I really shouldn't be; everyone said it goes by fast.
Just in the last month you've:
  • Really gotten better at your sign language.  Your "All-Done" is very good - you actually rotate your wrists now instead of just flailing your arms.  You also do "more" by banging your fists and do "change" and "milk".
  • You can walk!  On Dec 23rd, at Allison and Dave's Christmas Cookie Party, you walked from me to Ashley, taking at least 2 independent steps!
  • You've become very loving and sometimes clingy to me.  You are a mama's girl. :)
11 months old!

I've Got Some Good Excuses, I Swear...

After the Christmas weekend, Alexsa and I caught the crappy bug that had been going around.  The poor thing looked so horrible I just couldn't take her picture, and honestly, I felt so crappy I didn't even want to deal with the posting of them.  Then as soon as we started feeling better, we took the plunge and moved in with my parents.  I just can't believe its been a week already!  Alexsa and I moved in on the 1st, where we brought over her crib and most of her toys and our clothes.  The next day Barry came, and the day after the boys (aka the cats) followed.  We're still getting used to not being in our own space, but I think we're all adjusting well, and its been nice to have my mom help so much.  She even put her down tonight! This was the first time i was home and didn't put Alexsa down for the night. I have to admit it was hard to let it go.  I don't think i'll let that happen too often. :)
Every day we've been remembering things we forgot to pack and either Barry or I would make the trip to bring a few boxes over.(it took 3 days for my deoderant to make the trip! Good thing mom had extra!).  Tomorrow we're going to start packing up the rest of the junk that we really don't need but can't bear to get rid of, as well as the stuff we need to keep, but don't need (like our kitchen stuff).  I put our couches on craigslist and they sold within 2 days, but we still have to make the exchange.  Hopefully most things will fit at Barry's dad's house, who has graciously said we could use his house as storage.  This will save us a big chunk of change in storage costs.
Our goal is to have the house rental-ready by Feb 1, but I think we'll just have it ready for the carpets by then, and hopefully use Feb to get the place a renter by March 1.  I'm crossing my fingers we'll get a GOOD renter!  We're going to use a service so they do a background check, etc.
Other than the sick thing and the moving thing, I really don't have any other excuses. Maybe between now and Feb 9th (Alexsa's 1st Bday!) I'll be better about taking pictures and posting them.  Here's hoping!
