I am a happy girl

Hi everybody. I had a lot of fun with Grammie this weekend. She watched me two nights in a row so Mommy and Daddy could go on dates. We had so much fun together. She took a lot of pictures and Daddy uploaded them to the picture website. Daddy also uploaded two new videos to my YouTube channel: Happy Alexis and Alexis Bath Time.

The weather has been a bummer lately, so I haven't gotten a chance to go back outside. In fact when I woke up on Sunday there was lots of snow on the ground! I thought I slept through the entire summer. But Mommy and I are having fun indoors and anxiously waiting for it to get sunny and warm. We go on play dates and to the grocery store. When we are at home we play on my play mat, Mommy sings to me, I swing in my swing, and all kinds of other fun stuff.

This weekend I am going to Grandpa Cooper's house. He has visited me at my house a few times, but I've never been to his house. He is cooking ribs and hot dogs for us. Hopefully Aunt Allison, Aunt Katie, and Uncle Peter will be there too.

I am very much looking forward to Easter. Mommy and Daddy are going to take me to see the Easter Bunny soon. And then for Easter I get to go visit Danville again and see Popi, Gigi, and everybody at the farm.

Its almost time for my evening snack before bed. Mommy and Daddy have been very happy since I've been sleeping through the night for almost ten days. Talk to you soon.

Congratulations Grandpa Brad for winning a race at the Hot Wheels Nationals this weekend. Way to go!

Grammie is here!

Grammie is here for the whole weekend! We just got back from picking her up at the airport. I really like to ride in the car, but I only like it when the car is moving. When Daddy stops I get upset and encourage him to get going.

One of Daddy's friends at work played a song for him that reminded him of me, so he used it to make another video. Check it out. The song made Daddy cry, but I know its because I am sooo cute and he loves me sooo much.

I can't wait to tell you all about the fun Grammie and I have this weekend. Bye for now.

Popi and Gigi visit

I had a wonderful visit with Popi and Gigi this past weekend. They came to visit me and stayed with me Saturday night while Mommy and Daddy went on a date. It was so much fun that I didn't want to go to sleep. Popi sang me his high school fight song and I peed on Gigi's leg. We had a great time.

Then on Sunday I caught up on my sleep in the church nursery and then we all went to Ikea where Mommy picked out a new lamp for my room. Daddy up it up last night, I'll make sure he takes a picture of it so everyone can see how pretty it is.

This weekend Grammie is coming to visit and watch me while Mommy and Daddy go on another date! Holy smokes, they are like lovesick teenagers or something! I'm looking forward to seeing Grammie and hearing all about her trips to Nashville.

~Talk to you again soon~

Happy St. Pats Day, 2 months old, shots :(

Happy St. Patrick's Day! Today I am two month's old. I went to the doctor today, and it was not fun. I had to get shots. I know that the shots help keep me healthy, but they made me really mad. Daddy and Mommy said my face turned a color that they had not seen before and I screamed bloody murder. My legs still kind of hurt, but Mommy and Daddy are giving me medicine to make it feel better. My plan is to keep them up all night to punish them for taking me to the doctor, but then tomorrow I'll let them off the hook.

Other news from the doctor, I've grown! I am 11 lbs 10 oz and 23 3/4" long. That is almost 2 feet! The doctor said I am very healthy. And best of all, I do not have to go back for another 2 months.

I am excited that Popi and Gigi are coming to visit me this weekend. I can't wait to see them!

Finally, Daddy set up his facebook page to import my posts from this blog. So hello to all the new people reading this.

Talk to you again soon.

I met the Dierkings and Aunt Katie

Hi everybody. Daddy just uploaded a bunch of new photos of me. There are photos from my second visit to Connor, Morgan, and Brooke, and on that visit I also met Maddie, Michael and Alexandra. Also there are pictures from when the Dierkings came to visit. And there are photos from yesterday when Aunt Katie and her friend came to visit me. And, of course, plenty of pictures of me that Mommy and Daddy have taken.

This week I turn 2 months old, on Saint Patrick's Day in fact. Maybe Mommy will feed me green formula! I also have to go to the doctor this week so we will get to see how much I've grown. Daddy thinks I am close to 12 pounds, but we'll have to wait until Tuesday to find out how big I am.

I'll have Daddy post again after my doctor visit. Here are a couple of my favorite pictures Daddy just uploaded.

Catching up

Hi everybody. I am sorry it has been so long since my last post. Daddy was having computer problems last week and couldn't help me until now. But everything is fixed and now I can tell you what I've been up to.

Yesterday I got to meet Aunt Phyllis and Uncle Joe! They came to our house to visit. And that wasn't all. Grandpa Cooper, Aunt Allison, and Uncle Peter came over too. It was so great to see all of them. Aunt Allison had just been to some place called Mexico, and she was tan and had a pretty colored braid in her hair. She brought me back a cool dress and I can't wait until I'm big enough to wear it. Uncle Peter looked even taller than when I first met him a couple weeks ago, I think he's growing faster than I am!

On Saturday I got a visit from our friends, the Dierkings! John, Denise, Hannah, and Aubrey came to our house from Bloomington for the day. Aubrey and Hannah were really excited to meet me and were very sweet. They are great dancers too, and made John and Daddy laugh with their cool moves.

The previous weekend was my first trip to Danville, which is where Mommy and Daddy grew up. I got to see Popi and Gigi's house and the farm where Grandpa John and Grandma Betty live. Lots of people came to visit me, I don't think I can remember them all.

At the farm I got to see Jake again and meet my cousin Braden. Uncle Roy and Auntie Karen were there too. I also met Tracy, Mr. and Mrs. Oliver, Aunt Pat, Aunt Arlene and Jeff, Aunt Kate, April, and Danielle. Plus Kristen and Frog were there too. At Popi and Gigi's house I got to meet Aunt Lisa and Uncle Andy.

So, as you can tell, I have had a very busy and fun couple of weekends. I missed telling you all how I'm doing and I'll do my best not to wait so long before my next post.
