Since my birthday not even 2 weeks ago I have fully immersed myself in my new Kindle. I have managed to read 2 books already and 25% through with my 3rd. I am reading the 2nd book in "The Hunger Games" series by Suzanne Collins. (Thank for the recommendation from past coworker of mine from Desert...Juli, I know at some point you'll be blog stalking this and catch my shot out!)
I haven't even been good about taking pictures of my girls so I don't have much to share in the way of pictures. Just the ones from my birthday dinner at Cheesecake Factory.
It was a perfect day, and an even perfect end to the evening when Brett picked up a bottle of wine for us to share out on the patio after the girls went to sleep.
The girls are doing well. Brooklyn is no longer my baby and doesn't resemble the baby she once was. She's such a little girl with quite the imagination and spunk. She's that sponge that everyone talks about when their kids hit their toddler age...taking in everything and anything. Bringing up comments she's heard from god knows when. Opinionated on what she wears how her hear is done and what she'll like for a meal. She's really into showing me her "yogarts" (yoga) moves. We've explored mommy and brooklyn yoga very very briefly :). She likes to tell me whats on our agenda for the next day...like going to the park or the bounce house. She loves car rides now cause she likes to point out all the school buses and tell me she wants to go to school or even all the different places Daddy works since there seems to be a Chase on every corner. Funny cause she thinks he's at every single one of them at that moment we drive by and wants me to pull over to see him. She enver ceases to amaze us.
Alexis is just perfect in everyway. I truly mean that and can comfortably say that now. We had a bit of a worry the past few weeks when at her routine 9 month check up the Dr. referred us to a cardiologist. Long Story short after and EKG and ECHO (ultrasound of her heart) everything checked out normal. I would not have normally been worried, but given her lack of weight gain and very petite size it was hard not for me to worry. Since everything is fine we can rest assure that Alexis will just be our little itty bitty girl with a perfectly healthy ticker! She makes her presence known. She's talking and when she's not you know she's getting into trouble...climbing up the stairs getting into the doggie bowls or unrolling the toilet paper. When she gets busted we say "Alexis, uh-uh"....in which she simutaneously shakes her head no. She's still cruising the furniture and has made no attempts at walking...she'll be a late bloomer there for sure! This past week we've hit all time record though on solo stand time...I think we're up to a minute!
Brett is away on a business trip in Chicago (JEALOUS!!!!!) and I am currently alone to care for the girls. (prompts out to all the single parents out there!) This will only be my second time alone with the girls. I'm hoping it goes by super fast! Although not too fast because these are my days off work. My new job is awesome, any doubts I had about making the switch have disappeared. After 5 yrs of a long commute to work I don't think my 5 mile commute will ever get old. I love the people I work with and the job I do....I look forward to it getting busier! I definitely feel like this is where I am supposed to be right now for work. So there you have it...bad blogger this month, my bad! I hope to finally catch up, although I doubt it...I've got a long to do list that's only getting longer with the holidays coming!
