Train & Railroad tracks

Today, Nolan and I made some railroad tracks for his train, even equipped with stop lights :)

Alexa now says the word "go". As Nolan pushes Alexa on the swing, he makes her say "go" to get a nice push into the air. It is so cute to watch.

Nolan: "Awexa, say go!"
Alexa: "Guh!" (Go!)

"Ahh duh!" (All done)

Today, after my mom asked Alexa was all done with her food, Alexa responded, "Ahh duh!"

Not quite even 10 months, and Alexa is already saying two-word sentences. I'm a proud mama :)

Slip-n -slide craziness

Nolan had SO much fun with the giant slip-n-slide at April Davie's 2nd birthday party!! Unfortunately April wasn't a fan, but Nolan and some of ye older kids had a BLAST! Nolan was one of the first on, and one of the last off!! So fun!

First bath together!

Nolan & Alexa's first bath together (and Alexa's first time in the non-infant tub)!

The fun was short-lived, though, since Alexa did not nap that day and therefore not a happy camper for long..despite the bubbles!

We'll try again tomorrow!

When Francis wraps up Nolan in the towel like a burrito, they like to call it a "Nolan-rito".

Another programmer in the family?

Alexa is really loving her kiddy laptop. Another programmer in the Smith household?
