A good end to a long day...

Well, it started out as a long night last night actually. Alexa decided she "no like this one" in regards to her big girl bed and proceeded to wake up 7 times last night in protest. Needless to say, I was exhausted this morning and had very little patience. So we stayed at home, it was cold outside anyways, and had a really lazy day. Thankfully, she had no trouble with her bed for her nap this afternoon and even slept for 2.5 hours!!! However, the rest of the time she was awake, she was very whiny or crying the entire time so I was VERY happy when Kevin got home from school this afternoon. And having daddy home seemed to make all the difference...she was finally in a very happy, singing type of mood. Here are a couple clips for your viewing enjoyment:

I'd have to say that seeing Alexa like this brought a smile to my face after feeling so NOT in the mood to smile all day long!

(oh, Alexa had to go put on her basketball shorts and shirt in order to sing Bear Down in the second video!!!)

And to make the day end on an even brighter note...I went and got a MUCH needed pedicure for my tired, swollen, sausage-like appendages - formerly known as feet. Now I have cute toes (despite the frightening similarity to Vienna sausages) that are ready for baby to come!! Thanks Waveney for treating me to some pampering!

Those videos were awesome. I've never seen such spirit. I think you might have a future cheerleader on your hands. Although those bball shorts look pretty sweet on her too. You can't be both...

Very impressive, Alexa! We're she's learning the essential things in life. BEAR DOWN ARIZONA!!! Now if only Payton comes out singing Bear Down!
