An evening at the park

Now that Jason is finished with the hockey season we are enjoying family time at the park as often as we can.  After dinner we get Andie on the leash and Lexi in the stroller for an evening walk and family play time.  Here are some pictures from yesterday:


Just Stuff!

"Help--I can't get this lid off and that means it is the end of the world!"

"Let me see if I can figure out how this works..."

"Why would my mom be reading this book?"

"I'm not really into theories just yet.  I'll just stick to some light reading before bed."



"Why do you think my Paw Paw calls me Blondie?"


My Baby

Yesterday a friend came over with her 3 month old.  I was soooo excited to hold the baby, but I was not good at it.  I held the baby like I was a teenager; like I had never seen a baby before.  I was scared she would wiggle out of my arms or I would drop her.  I had these same fears before Alexi; actually, way before Alexi.  Right before Jason and I got married I called him and asked if he thought I would be a good mom.  I was scared of being a mom.  He assured me he was 100% confident in my "mom" skills and I shared with him that I was 100% confident in his "dad" skills.  The funny part is, almost 6 years ago we had no idea what "mom" or "dad" skills were, but we were indeed...confident.  The thing is, we were just confident in each other.  Things just happen naturally, like getting engaged after only dating for a few months and becoming parents all of a sudden after wanting to get pregnant for so long.  When we held Lexi the fears were gone.  It happened.  We held her with confidence.  We knew how to hold her.  It happened naturally.  We became her parents in a blink of an eye.  We were the only two people who did not feel even a little bit awkward or scared when holding her.  My friend with the 3 month old and I talked about how parents just 'know' their children.  We know every little thing.  Every. Single. Little. Thing. And I guess, knowing every little thing makes us confident in being parents...parents to Alexi.


Easter 2010

The Easter Bunny surprised Miss Alexi with a new playroom!  She loves it, especially the new ball pit he left for her!  We had a blast watching her expression and helping her hunt Easter eggs.

We spent spent the afternoon at Mimi and Paw Paw's house and celebrated Easter with Aunt Sarah, Uncle Daniel and Kristi.  It was a great day!
