On Lexi's actual Birthday we went to a new place called "Bounce n Play" with her good friend Chloe. These two are darling together and Alexis had an absolute blast once we avoided all the big slides for awhile. Apparently the tummy flipping feeling that we all seek is not Lexi's thing. "Mom, It hurt my tummy" Once we found a "little one" she with pure delight said, "this one not hurt my tummy" and proceeded to go down over and over.They had a great time painting, laughing and jumping. It was a morning filled with, "Let's do that again" or "look at this mom" and "watch this!" Apparently I need her birthday more often as she had a perfect grin on her face all day and was delightful to take pictures of during all her b-day celebrations. You know you've succeeded when later you hear Lexi say, "That was fun or member dat"
I also forgot to document that Lexi had 2 huge growing up moments in February as she graduated to her big girl bed and potty trained! I thought all of this was going great until now. Apparently she thinks she no longer needs a nap and also enjoys getting out of her bed at least 5x a night making the entire going to sleep process taking up to 2 hours at times. In addition she refuses to go POOP on the potty and asks for a diaper every time...it is driving me nuts!!! Oh Lexi, it is a good thing you are so cute!!!!! Any suggestions on either one of these matters please send them my way.
