As usual, Geoff worked today and will tomorrow as well since I asked him to come home a little early to help me with some stuff for the school garden. Lexi had me up around 8:00 which is not bad really. We had breakfast and then cuddled up on the couch and watched some Sesame Street and Caillou. I love how she will now curl up against me and watch tv. At one point I wondered if she would ever snuggle with me! Well, after we got up we started with a bath. A long fun bath with no rushing…NICE! Then I gave her 3 choices of an outfit to wear. She picked it out and we finished. Then we decided to make Daddy some brownies. This is where it REALLY got interesting. She wasn’t quite sure what to make of mixing together eggs, oil and water but when I added the brownie mix the fun began and when she was able to taste the batter for the first time she said, “Yuuummmmmmy!”. She kept dipping back into the bowl so I had quickly transfer it to the dish. She didn’t even mind getting her hands nasty! And when I went to take a picture shocked me by saying “cheese” and looking straight at the camera!
After we finished making the brownies we clipped Lexi’s fingernails and toes. Then we painted them! She was again so happy with this that for a second time she smiled at the camera and said “cheese”! I almost fell over!
What a Diva!
After lunch I rocked her to sleep and just marveled at how the little things we do make us so happy.
Once Geoff got home we went to Lowes and then delivered all the stuff I bought to school. So we decided to let Lexi play on the Kindergarten playground. She had a blast and kicked and screamed like a crazy person when we put her in the car. Here are some of my favorite shots.
Breathtaking little beauty!
This one was taken from under her! Yes, I laid on the ground to get this picture but it’s so cute!
And these… reminders that Mommy and Daddy need to begin eating better and dropping some weight!
