No new photos today, sorry! Alex and I have had a very full morning, though. Barb, our neighbor, invited us out for breakfast at Perkins with some of the other neighborhood ladies. Alex was quite the charmer, smiling and cooing at everyone there. They all commented on how darling she was, and she was perfectly behaved for a four month old.
That's right-- today is Alex's four month birthday! To celebrate we went to Target and bought some new bigger bottles (8 oz) and are going to formally retire the little 4 oz ones :-( For all you mommies to be out there--- just buy 8 ozers from the start. Had we done that, we could have saved a bunch of money!
After breakfast, I strapped a sleepy and protesting baby into her carseat and headed to Shakopee for ECFE Mommy & Me class. Because our breakfast was at 9am, we had to go to a different section of class than we normally do. Normally on Fridays Alex is the 'big girl' in the room-- all of the other babes are 2-3 months old. However, today she was the youngest. She amused herself watching the bigger babies (8-9 monthers) army crawl / scoot around the room and explore.
Needless to say, she was very tired when we returned home, and struggled to lay down for a 'real' nap- (car trips don't count), but she finally settled. We are packing for our trip up to Great Grandpa's farm tonight-- we won't have any blog updates this weekend from Meadowlands, but I'm sure we'll have lots of good pictures and stories on Monday.
