Finally. A month and a half later, I'm getting around to sharing about Alexa's birthday!
The week or so preceding Alexa's birthday, I had spent the bulk of my time reading books and lying on the couch. Let's just say that the first trimester lazy was taking me over. The day of Alexa's birthday, I wanted to make special, despite my tiredness. I woke up in the morning and made some Belgian waffles, complete with Strawberries!
Andrew had a work party that morning with his team from work so he took the car and there we were. Sitting at home. That just would not do for Alexa's special day. I steeled myself against the heat, packed the girls in the stroller and made the 1 mile (or less) trek to the splash pad down the street. Both girls took fantastic naps when we got home and I tried to clean the house while they slept because my cousin and bestie, Liz was coming over at about 4:00. Andrew was good enough to stop at the store to buy cake mix and frosting for Alexa's little birthday celebration plus a yummy pizza for dinner, after presents, of course!
Unfortunately, my photography skills suffered from my first trimester laziness and I was practically fighting with Andrew and the phone he was skyping his parents on for the best angle, so the pictures aren't exactly what I was hoping for, but I decided that as long as I document the moment, the quality doesn't really matter all that much, right?
Overall, it was a great birthday for little Alexa! I'll post some more pictures of my sweet little one-year-old soon! Happy birthday, my dear!
