Shout Hooray!

Eventually I'll get around to posting about Christmas, but as there's so much going on this week, who knows when? Christmas, Alexa's birthday, our anniversary, all within a few days of each other!

Alexa turned one yesterday. Wow, I just can't believe it! It seems like just yesterday that she was just a little bundle of cuddles, and now she doesn't stay still long enough to cuddle! This past year has been wonderful. We are so lucky to have Alexa in our family, and can't imagine it without her!

We had to resort to giving her a cupcake because she was so shy about digging into the cake. She finally got around to eating the cupcake, but it took quite awhile. So the pictures are in reverse order, but pretend they're right, ok?

A Non-Christmas Related Post

In honor of her upcoming birthday (and the fact that she's totally outgrown her infant seat) we got Alexa a new car seat. She was a little weirded out that she was facing the wrong way!
And not only was it a car seat that she got, but also a box! Woohoo!! I have plans to get some spray paint and make it look like a cute little house.
Also, since we always just carried her in her car seat, this was the first time she sat in a cart while we were shopping. This whole trip she just sat there gripping the bar in front of her. Since then, she's loosened up and keeps trying to climb out of the cart.

She has taken her first steps, and is fully capable of walking, but is too chicken to actually do it. We're getting there though. Pretty soon she's going to be running circles around me and it'll be even harder to make sure she doesn't get into things that she shouldn't be!

Alexa's first snow

So, it wasn't really the first time that it's snowed since Alexa was born, but it was the first time this season, and the first time we let her play in it. She wasn't very impressed...

She made her first snow angel on our car... and yes, it really does look like Mickey Mouse. She wouldn't put her head back or her legs down.
