Alexa LOVES shoes!

Alexa is so funny! She's only 19 months old and she loves shoes! She loves to go in my mothers closet and play in her shoes!

Labor Day Weekend - Sunday

We started out our morning with pancakes! I don't know what it is, but I have been craving pancakes a lot! I made half regular and half with chocolate chips. I even made Alexa 2 little cakes, but she just fed them to the dog. Overall, it was a great breakfast! As soon are we were done, we decided to get ready and go to the beach. We had so much fun! Alexa is the perfect baby when it comes to the beach. She loves just playing in the sand with no sand toys or anything. She just likes to have the sand run through her fingers and she also likes to scrunch it up in her hands. Alexa has only been to the beach a couple of other times, so before today she really didn't care about the ocean. This time she was wanting to go down to the water a lot. Her favorite thing to do, besides playing in the sand, was to have us pick her up before a wave came so she can kick her feet in the water while she was in the air! She loves it so much that now she starts to walk toward the water, only a few feet in front of us, and turns around with her hand up in the air, like okay someone take me down to the water. She is so adorable! We only stayed for a couple hours but it was super fun! Alexa was so exhausted by the time we got back, so it was perfect that it was her nap time anyways! We rinsed her off and put her to bed. After her nap, she woke up super happy! Matthew and I also took a nap, and since I was still in bed, Matthew brought Alexa to me and she put her nose to mine and smiled! I love her so much! For dinner I made chicken tiddley's! They were delicious! Another craving satisfied! We did our usual, before Alexa goes to bed routine, of watching a movie in bed, then it was time to say goodnight to our baby. I watched Big Brother while Matthew finished his homework and then we watched Life as we know it. We have seen it before, and I suggest watching it if you haven't seen it. It's a really cute movie about 2 single people raising a baby that their best friends left as legal guardians if anything were to happen to them. If you plan on having kids, it's a good little insight as to what parent's (we) go through. It was yet another great day for the Johnson Family!

Labor Day Weekend - Saturday

This morning started off really great! Alexa slept in until 8:20! She has never slept in that late before, so it was nice to just relax for an extra hour. After she woke up, Matthew, Alexa, and I had pancakes and eggs for breakfast! They were delicious! Since my parents went out of town for the weekend I went grocery shopping so we can have some delicious meals for this weekend. I have been craving a few meals, so this weekend was the perfect time to make them. After breakfast we played in the backyard with sidewalk chalk and then played in our game room until about 30 minutes before Alexa was to go down for her nap. So for about 30 minutes, we decided to watch a few episodes of Mother Goose Stories. It's a really old TV show that I used to watch as a little kid, and I just learned that Matthew used to watch it too. I love finding out new things about each other. I found it on Netflix and thought Alexa might like to watch it, and I was right! She loves it! It's funny because every episode we watch Matthew and I keep saying, "Oh, I remember that!" It's cool to know we both liked the same things even when we didn't know each other. After Alexa took a nap, we had lunch and then we decided to take her to Irvine Park. I really love this age because Alexa is very curious and loves being outside! We walked around Irvine Park and also indulged in a little snack. It was a perfect afternoon! After the park, we came home and I started making guacamole and taquitos for dinner! I'm happy to say that I satisfied one of my cravings! After some more sidewalk chalk, a bath, and a movie, it was time for Alexa to go to bed. Can't wait to see what we do tomorrow!
