Letter's to Rex - 1/28/13

Rex Allen,

You are an amazing little boy!
You grow so much every single day.

You are sleeping through the night now.  Which Mommy and Daddy really love!  You still wake up some nights and need a little midnight snack, but that's happens to all of us!  You sleep in your big boy bed, and move around so much through the night.

You smile so much!  Such a happy little boy!  Your eyes light up in the morning when you see Mommy, Daddy, or Sissy.

You are a drooling machine right now.  You have got to be teething.  You love to chew on anything you can get in your mouth.  I can't see or feel any little teeth right now, but I hope something breaks through soon so you can get some relief from that.

You have eaten some banana a time or two.  You still aren't sure about eating real food.  I mixed up some sweet potatoes yesterday so we will have to try that soon.

You want to sit up on your own, but you just can't balance right now.  But you love to sit up and see the world around you.

In just a few days you will be 5 months old.  That's almost half a year!!  I can't believe you have been here that long!

You are a big boy!  You are in the 75 % for your height....I don't know where you got that sure wasn't Mommy!

You still don't have much hair, but we're holding out hope that it's going to come in red.

You can still wear some 3 month tops, but pants and pajamas have to be at least 3-6, and most of them are starting to get too short!  I joked with Daddy that you are going to pass Lexi in weight by your first birthday....but that might really be true!

I love you bunches and bunches!

My Lexi Rosemay,

You are the sweetest girl I have ever met.  I can't believe I am blessed to be your Mommy.  You make every day worth getting out of bed.

Lately you say the most hilarious things.  I could write a whole book of just things you have said.

"It's a blustery day." -One day while it was cold and raining.
"I love you sweetie pie." -To your brother.

Disgusting is your new favorite word. You say it about everything.

You still are a very picky eater.  You will eat chicken nuggets sometimes.  Sometimes a piece of pizza.  You ask for noodles quite often.  Anything chocolate you are all about.

You love bedtime stories and your dream light. I hope you continue to love to read like your Daddy and I do.

You really enjoy school.  I hope it stays that way forever.
"Miss Bet-ny (Bethany) and Miss Amy are your favorites.

Every day is a talent show to you.  You sing about everything.  You twirl and spin and just sing your heart out.  Most recently you have started rhyming.  The words don't always make sense, but you love to make them rhyme.

You love church most of the time.  Last night you cried when it was time to leave.  I hope you always love church.  Of course it helps that Brayden's Daddy is the preacher.

You are an amazing big sister.  If we can't get to Bubba immediately you always talk to him and try to calm him down....and sometimes stuff a bottle in his face.

I can't believe in a few short months you are going to be 4 years old!  Such a big girl!

I love you bunches and bunches baby girl!
