Almost 2...

I can't believe that my baby will be two years old in 3 days! Friday, Jan.6th is Alexis' second birthday. I feel like her year from 1 to 2 has gone so fast. Over break I have realized that I feel like I have missed out on a lot of her growing up time this past year just do to life and things being busy with work, Madalyn, personal things, etc. So, one of my new year resolutions is to do my best to enjoy and spend more time with my girls together AND individually. There was one day over Christmas break where Madalyn got to go play at her great grandma's house for a few hours and it was just Alexis and I at the house. That's when I realized how much she has grown up and how quickly it has happened before I had realized it. Madalyn being the first and only one til almost 4, she had all my attention during her early years, where as Alexis has not. I hope and pray I can do better this coming year with spending more time with Alexis by herself. I think it's important for both my girls to get special time with both Kevin and I where they don't have to compete for our attention.

She loves spaghetti!

And she loves making messes, which she is very good at it I might add, especially when she is eating. ;-)

In her PJ's...

Such a big girl now! Where has the time gone?

It is so hard splitting your time between two! I'm learning everyday how to manage and respond to each of their needs.
Is she in a big bed already?? I'm not ready for that yet! I'm keeping J in his crib as long as possible!
