Alexandria---2 years, 6 months

Dear Lexie,
As of today, you are 2 1/2 years old. As I write this, you are closer to the age of 3 than you are to 2! How did you grow up so quickly?

Here are some of the things you've been up to:

-You are currently potty training. You've made great progress this week, and I think you may be completely day trained soon!

-You talk ALL THE TIME. You even talk when nobody is listening. You have a vast vocabulary and speak in complete sentences. You still mispronounce some words, but I think it's so cute!

-You love to sing and dance.

-Your favorite shows are Dora the Explorer, Go Diego Go, Ni Hao Kai Lan, and LazyTown.

-You are a fashionista. I dress you up everyday, but you love it. You love shoes, jewelry, dresses, feather boas, and tutus.

-You are finally becoming more outgoing. It now only takes you a few minutes to warm up to strangers, or adjust to new situations.

-Your diarrhea is finally slowing down, after 8 very long months. We still don't know what's causing it, but we highly suspect a wheat allergy or Celiac Disease. Hopefully we'll get it figured out soon!

-You are 28 lbs, and 37 inches tall.

-Bun Bun is still a very big part of your life. He goes everywhere you go!

-You are a water baby-you absolutely love to swim!

-You have so much attitude! There are times that you drive your daddy and I absolutely crazy!

-You are still an extremely picky eater. It is my biggest source of frustration with you.

-You love all animals, especially cats!

-You are so sweet, adorable, and funny. Your smile and laughter is infectious.

Lexie Bean, I love you with all my heart. You will ALWAYS be my baby girl!

Happy 2 1/2 years!

Love, Mommy
