Now She's Fun!

As I was tearing up a little tonight (you'll see why later) Mike made the comment that Alexa is fun now- "not that she wasn't before..."- and as sad as I get sometimes that she isn't my cuddly little baby anymore, she is a lot of fun now! She loves playing soccer...
and playing with her rice...

 And when we went to the zoo for Mike's birthday (the big 30, by the way) she had a great time looking at all the animals.  Of course she liked the waterfalls and fish the best, but she did enjoy the more exotic animals, too.

She even pet the goats and pigs willingly and tried to tell them to come closer if they wandered away!

 But this is why I teared up.  Lame, I know, but I'm pregnant, what can I say? Tonight was Alexa's first night in a 'big girl bed'.  Really we just took the side off so it would be in its day bed form and got one of those safety rails.  She was so excited about her big girl bed, and so far (I think) she's still laying in it! I didn't think she'd stay in it once we shut the door, so let's hope she makes it through the night!
