I haven't had much to say lately (or rather, I haven't had time to put into words what I have to say lately), so I've wanted to substitute words for pictures. But these days Alex runs from the camera and video camera, so it's hard to catch any interesting shots of her.
She's been busy, busy, busy, running around, exploring and touching everything. She must burn 20,000 calories a day. We think she's been getting bored with her two introvert parents at home, so we've been taking her exploring in Lowe's and Sam's Club and Walmart, which she just goes nutty for. Here's a short video of her exploring in the backyard today. (You can hear her say, "no, no, no" to the camera, letting me know her displeasure at being filmed.)
She's also busy working on lots of new words. "Bumpa" for grandpa, "mo" for milk, and "bawa" for water.
