A Love So Big
Your gentle personality has started to show since Alexis was born. You are careful to give soft kisses and I think it's absolutely adorable when you talk to her. You take your voice up a few pitches and say "Hiiii Awexis Hiiiiii", give her a kiss, and then giggle a little bit. I'm determined to get it on video because I never want to forget it! You are always the first to tell me when "Awexis awake" or "Awexis eyes open" and do a good job pushing her in the swing.
This is not to say that you aren't still a rough and tough boy. My goodness child, you never stop running or jumping. Ever. Some days you just stand at the front door and sprint to the back door. Then sprint back. And on and on it goes for a loooong time. You even say "Ready, Set, Go." I don't mind because it keeps you entertained! You LOVE the pool and do such a great job swimming! We go as often as we are able and it's such a joy to watch you swim and make new friends. You especially like to do the alligator crawl and today you were brave enough to put your head underwater! Another favorite activity is baseball and soccer. You like to watch ball games with Daddy whenever you get the chance and are a pretty good player. We don't know where love of soccer came from, but it sure is cute to watch you dribble the soccer ball around the house! You are a very good listener and that makes going on new adventures that much easier because I know that you'll behave :-)
