Week 70

Week 70 Updates:
1. Alex loves sitting in little chairs, on the stairs and especially on the coffee table. She will try sitting in her own chair for Church, but that doesn't last long. I guess that we are going to need to get Alex sized chairs here pretty soon.
2. She is learning how to fold her arms when we are praying. Its super cute because she looks at us like she is not sure why she is folding her arms but she knows that she is supposed to. Such a funny girl :)
3. Alex is getting a little bit better about sharing but not much. She will take a toy away from another baby and then a little later, she will give them another one. She will also go and give them a drink of water (usually from someone else's bottle).
4. She loves to color and is starting to get a hang of it. She has colored our walls, doors, and windows. Thankfully she is only using crayons so, its been easy to get out.
5. She knows how to take off her bibs :(
6. Alex is getting so cleaver! I forget that she is not a baby anymore.

Week 69

Week 69 Updates:
1. Alex loves walking around with cloth (towels, blankets, scarves, or sweatshirts) around her neck and shoulders. It cracks me up :).
2. We got to celebrate Mommy and Grandpa Prusso's birthdays this week. It was fun having so much cake and ice cream around. 
3. Alex tried shrimp and guacamole this week and she really seemed to like the guacamole but wasn't quite sure about the shrimp. She does not really care for olives (at least at this point). She dumped out all of the olives we had her try.
4. She loves sitting in little chairs and pushing them around the room. Its probably nice for her to sit in something that she fits in. She also likes sitting in her infant car seat (which we keep around in case Alex and I are getting a ride somewhere). Alex happily sits there and either reads to herself or plays with some mixing bowls. 
5. Alex is starting to attempt to climb up our couches and onto chairs. She hasn't quite been able to get up them yet, but not for a lack of trying. She still loves climbing on top of our headboard and just hanging out.

Week 68

Alex and Cousin Lucy with Grandpa Prusso

Alex and the Pumpkins on Halloween
Week 68 Updates:
1. Alex got to celebrate her 2nd Halloween! This year she dressed up as a skeleton and I think that she had fun. We went to two Trunk-or-Treats and by the second one, Alex was understanding the concept of Trick-or-Treating. She would grab a piece of candy from the bowl and put it in her bag. It was super cute and she scored some good candy...for Alex of course :). On Halloween we had a play date where the kids dressed up in their costumes and they were so cute! We also made a little hand bat craft. Since Chris and I were such slackers this year, we carved our pumpkins on Halloween night. I think that they turned out pretty good. Chris did Lightning McQueen from Cars, I did Rapunzel from Tangled, and Alex had a traditional scary pumpkin. Even though we didn't do much, Halloween was still pretty fun.
2. This weekend we got to see cousin Lucy who was in town for a visit. It was fun to get the girls together and see how much they have grown. They are both getting so big! Grandpa Prusso looks pretty happy to be holding two such beautiful girls :).
3. Alex's 5th tooth is finally starting to cut through (we have been able to see it starting for about a month or so).
