This is how we roll… The sweet little 2-year old who normally entertains us was in bed and we lounged around sleeping or watching tv until it’s time for bed. Exciting stuff. Surprising how enjoyable it really was. Actually, we all played Farkle and Sequence, THEN Dad and Adam laid around. Mom and I went to the movies!
Meet Alexis, age 23 1/2 months. There are too many great presents to play with to bother combing our hair before we get to work. New pajamas too!
Everyone’s been kissing and hugging her so much that she can’t stand it any more. All requests for kisses are promptly rejected with a very polite, “No thank you” and possible hand blocking if we attempt to steal one.
I spent a good deal of my Christmas vacation sitting in front of this kitchen, cutting wooden vegetables, talking on the cordless phone, pushing buttons on the microwave, and making sure Alexis didn’t leave the over-the-sink light on too long. This thing even has a dishwasher and light-up/sound-making burners.
I got her a princess dress for Christmas, which she wore over her clothes for several days. She also loves to color now. I was commanded repeatedly – “Col-lee, Keebee. Hep me!”
After church on Sunday, we ate lunch and Alexis continued to charm us all.
She had a much better attitude about taking a bath when her mommy was giving it and her aunt Keebee was merely observing and making funny faces with her.
I was repeatedly told to play inside this tent with her. Um… I didn’t exactly fit! I had to fold myself up as small as possible, lift the tent up over my head, and set it down on top of me – leaving approximately 4 inches for Alexis. Rather than use her 4 inches, she just climbed all over me. One of the highlights of my visit was when she convinced my sister and I to get in there with her. Katie and I each laid down on the floor and stuck our heads and shoulders in from opposite sides. Alexis was thrilled. She made us laugh so hard we nearly cried.
I finally got someone to take pictures of me with her. I took all the other pictures, so it was kinda hard to get in them. I wish I’d been wearing some makeup, but I was so glad to have someone agree take some pictures that I settled for au natural.
