Alex's First Birthday Party!
So I packed all of Alexandra's "swim" things. Two bathing-suits because I did not know which one would fit the best, her hooded towel, a little terry cloth dress to put on over her bathing-suit, an SPF sunhat, her tiny little pink baby crocs which I love (however, not into them for adults...what whatever floats your boat ;) ) , and her swim diapers. Yup, I was WAY more excited about this new swim adventure than Alex was! We got as far as dipping her feet into the water and she started crying! Lol, poor kid! I think the water was just too chilly because she really enjoys her warm baths. Later on, I tried running through the sprinkler with her because she just felt so hot and sticky and that didn't go over well either. So we gave up on the water for the day and settled into a nice spot on the back deck. We were in the shade but it was sunny and breezy, the back deck overlooks woods-and it was just a nice way to spend an afternoon! Alex was charming people with her smiles and babbles and was perfectly content to chill with her mama. All in all-it was a great day. I love the age she's at now and am trying to treasure every day of it, but watching all the kids having a ball in the bouncy house and pool, it leaves me a lot to look forward to as well. I just feel so blessed.
I'll post some pictures of the day later, once I upload them. There are some very funny ones of Alex and Reese (Jill's one month old baby girl) together. I hope they grow up to be great friends!
