Welcome Back to the Healthy Side of Life

Alexis is slowly regaining her preference for healthy foods. While we were grocery shopping this afternoon, she kept asking for cheese. Then before dinner, Daddy was doing his usual meal spoiling by giving her Cheetos. I offered her some faux pepporoni instead, and she spit the Cheetos out to eat them. Then she asked for more and stayed on the healthy side of things through dinner. Finally, she refused the cookie Daddy gave her for dessert. I still don't understand the whole "healthy food" thing, but I certainly do like it.

Alexis really loves to look at books. It would seem that pictures are optional. She spent 20 minutes paging through and "reading" one of my books then threw a fit when Daddy took it from her.


No Olives for You

A week has passed, and our dear Alexis has failed to say "Mommy". I hereby declare her cut off from all things delicious and olive-like until further notice. For goodness sake, the kid can say "flower" but not "Mommy"? WHATEVER!


Big Yawn

It was an extremely boring weekend around here. Since the weather still hasn't cleared enough to work outside, we spent it all inside watching movies. Actually, I went over to a friends to do some work, but Daddy and Alexis just sat around watching movies. Alexis watched Signing Time while Daddy watched just about the entire first season of Rome. Considering that Alexis started signing train, grapes, and cookie, I think it's obvious which one of them was more productive.

What cracks me up about these pictures is that the bowl was empty the entire time. There was no ice cream to scoop, pour, or smile about.
