Birthday Girl, Part 2

The Birthday Girl!!

Well, we've had a fun day. Alexa and I went to Target this morning where she insisted she was "hungy" (ever since I stopped once and got a soft pretzel there, she's remembered and always says "hungy" as soon as we get to Target). But since it was her birthday, I decided to indulge and we shared a soup bread bowl (yes Target has soup bread bowls, who knew???!!), which was quite delicious and then came home for naptime.

Once Kevin got home from school, we had dinner, more singing, blowing out of candles, and eating of cake. And then, of course, more presents. My family had sent gifts that had arrived earlier this week and so I saved them for today. Here are a few videos of the birthday festivities.

This first one is just to go along with Alexa's Spongebob birthday theme.

Here's the actual birthday singing with all her friends. She really did turn two, the candle is a #2, it was just turned sideways from the view of the camera! She had us sing again after this video was taken. She could have had us sing all night, she loved it!

And this is for my mom and my sister, Jenn. They sent gifts for Alexa that I saved for today and I wanted them to share in her excitement. The purse was a big hit, as you'll see! All the gifts were...thank you so much for spoiling her! Jenn, she wanted Dora to go to bed with her tonight and got really upset when I wouldn't let her stay in the crib!

A few tidbits about Alexa:

She loves to be silly. I can make her giggle by just saying something in a high voice or dancing a funny dance. She absolutely loves music and dancing. It doesn't matter what kind of music, she just loves it all and will get her groove on whenever she can. She LOVES her "lello yammies" (yellow jammies). They are her favorite. She is very much a mama's girl and would be content to just sit in my lap with her lovies all day if I would let her. She absolutely LOVES Spongebob Squarepants for some reason and knows all the characters, their homes, their places of work, etc. She also loves Dora and Diego. She gets so excited when her daddy gets home from school. She loves to tease and get a reaction. She is very attached to her lovies and her thumb. We'll have to work on the thumb thing one of these days but for now, I'm not too worried about it. She is very sweet and always asks me if I'm okay. She'll say "peez" and "tane too" for everything. She loves raisins right now. She loves to be in the car and will usually ask first thing in the morning if we're going in the car. She has the sweetest smile and I love the way her eyes light up when she grins at me. She is the center of our world and we couldn't imagine life without her!

Happy Birthday Alexa. We hope this next year is just as fun as the last two have been!

We love you!
