November Updates

The big news in November was that Alexa turned ONE! At her 1 year appointment, Alexa weighed in at 19 pounds and was 28.5 inches long. This month Alexa learned a lot. She started using the sign "more", she started crawling up the stairs (with Mommy close behind), was able to find Mommy & Daddy's nose when asked and she started swimming lessons.

She absolutely loved the pool and wasn't afraid of the water at all!! She probably would've liked to stay in the water for longer than 40 minutes each lesson but Mommy just got too cold!!

"Hello, is anyone there?"

One day, Alexa woke up from her nap with her hair looking like this. I laughed so hard I almost fell over and Alexa didn't quite know what to do other that look at me like I was crazy...

I learned something this month too....that 12 month old children are probably too young to fingerpaint. Oh well, it was fun and I have her first piece of artwork hanging on the fridge.

"Uh oh, I've been caught!"

I love my little 1 year old!!!

  1. I love the fingerpainting shot ... you're never too young for fingerpainting ... it's just that the parent might not want to clean up the mess ;)
