No lil miss hasn't arrived yet, but I am surely counting down the days, Im excited, and sooo over being pregnant! she is quite big and growing right along which is amazing considering that I have only lost weight this pregnancy, so far the dr says its over 25lbs of full loss, when you calculate baby weight, placenta, and fluid weight, as well as visible numbers on the scale. so heres hoping after she is born I get to keep this lil body, cuz i feel super hot!
Alexa is doing great! she just so smart and loving it amazes me, she loves to b__w kisses and she is really cuddley with her daddy now (she has always been with me) she is still having trouble with her speech, her words don't come out clear for others to figure out, I know what she is saying and Dh is getting the hang of it, but it is not where she should be at, however in everything else she excels! she knows all her body parts, can say them and point to them, knows a lot of her colors, and knows 1-10 we are now working on perfecting the alphabet, she still gets confused on parts. she is also very mechanical, she can figure anything out, and very determined, if she sets her mind to something, she won't stop until she does it.
We took her to the beach again this past weekend, and she had a blast, she played in the ocean with daddy, and played on the beach in the sand with me. I would build a sandcastle and she would knock it down, and she would also fill the buckets for me so I could make the sand castle.
A few weeks back we bought her the barbie fj cruiser power wheels, and she picked it up the first day, she just wasn't so good at steering, now she can steer forwards and backwards, and has a blast riding all over the yard on it...last night she climbed on the hood, and dh climbed in it and drove her around the yard while she stunt rode on the hood, it was too cute.
She is also loving swimming, we have her pool set up neext to her jungle gym, playground and slides, and she goes from toy to toy...and then jumps in the pool splashes around a while and goes back to the toys. It's just so amazing how much she has grown, and it doesn't feel like enough time has pa__sed for all that.
Did I mention the Dr says she measures way way tall for her age, she measures bigger than a 2 year old at her 15 month physical!!! people are always surprised when I tell them she is only 18 months right now.
As for me, everything is ok for now, I am working on my relationship with my step dad, I think he really wants a second chance, and I am willing to try because I really want a family (my own family to be a family) I have DH's and they are great, they accepted me from day one and took me right in, but I want my own ya know... so he was over here today i did a bbq, of steak chicken shrimp, corn squash etc...and everyone had a great time! My lil brother is still living with us, however we are working on getting him to move home with his dad... see we do a LOT of family outings on the weekends, and my lil brother misses that, so now that he lives with us and gets to be part of it, he is afraid if he moves out, he won't get to anymore so we are working on making sure he knows that just because he doesn't live under our roof, doesn't mean he can't come with us to everything we do...and that he is more than welcome to all of it! (he had a blast at the beach too!!)
DH is working a lot of hours at his new job, but the pay is excellent and he gets a company truck and card to pay for the fuel. so we are saving money there and making more money... its just he is hating the long hours and never being home with lexa, thats why we try to make the most of the weekends
Well as usual I have written a novel, guess I had a lot to say... take care ladies and hope everyone is well... sorry for sucha long post.... :) (and I hope to put up new pics on the site soon, when I do i will post about it and post the address again we have TONS of great pics of her at the beach and hanging out here with her daddy!)
