First of all, before everyone gets on my case, yes, I realize it has been over 7 months since my last post. I'm sorry. Daddy is going to try to do a better job of putting shorter, more frequent updates on here instead of waiting so long that there is too much to say. We'll see how that goes.
Well obviously I'm not going to get too detailed about everything that has happened since my last post. Here are some quick highlights.
Halloween was fun, I was a pink bunny, went trick-or-treating around Poppa Cooper's neighborhood, and got lots of candy.
Thanksgiving was fun. We went to Atlanta to visit Uncle Dan, Aunt Mimi, and Precious. We went to the aquarium. I also went to my first Packers game! It was very loud but fun. They lost, but they avenged that loss a few months later (more on that below).
Christmas was fun, but I was sick on Christmas day. In fact, I kept everyone at the farm up most of the night before Christmas. I still had fun opening presents and seeing my entire family.
I turned TWO on January 17th. Can you believe it? I'm such a big girl. We had a football themed party. A lot of people came to celebrate with me and I got a lot of great presents. Everyone wore jerseys and there were Packers and Colts cupcakes. The Packers were still in the playoffs at that point, they had just avenged their regular season loss to Atlanta by beating them in the playoffs the week before my party. But what happened next was even better.
The Packers won the Super Bowl! After beating the Bears in the NFC Championship the day after my party there was a two week celebration in our house. I learned how happy it made Daddy when I sang "Green and Yellow, Green and Yellow" (I still do it sometimes just to see him smile). Then came the big game and we went down to Poppa Cooper's to watch with the family. We were all so happy when they won. I feel a little bad for Popi because he is a Steelers fan. I think I'll work on getting him to switch to "Green and Yellow".
In other news, I've been sick a lot this winter and after my last ear infection the doctor recommended I get tubes put in my ear. I just had a hearing test last week, which went great. The tube surgery is near the end of April.
Finally, just some general comments. I still the happiest girl you've ever met. I'm talking a lot more, and in a lot of complete sentences. Mommy and Daddy get a kick out of something I say almost everyday. I love to paint and color. I have an American Girl doll I named Becky, a Pottery Barn doll I named Sophie, and a Build-A-Bear bunny I named Bunny Jane Cooper. Once I learned my name was Alexis Jane Cooper I started calling everyone by their name plus Jane Cooper (Mommy Jane Cooper, Daddy Jane Cooper, etc). I love reading books. I love swimming. I love helping Mommy clean and helping Daddy unload the dishwasher.
You will notice the links to the picture albums changed a little bit, but you should still be able to tell where the pictures are. Daddy has upload a ton of new pictures and some new videos to my youtube channel. Hope you like them.
Talk to you again soon.
