Alex got pretty excited about an ant today. Well, actually she got pretty excited about a ladybug and said, "red, red, red, red, red, red, red, red, red, red" for about 10 minutes. But then we inadvertently killed the ladybug, so I diverted her attention to the ant. Then she said "ant, ant, ant, ant, ant, ant, ant" for about 10 minutes straight.
We also took her to her 18 month appointment today. For the inquiring minds who want to know, she was 21.5 pounds - 12th percentile for weight and 45 percentile for height. The doctor, being very perceptive and wise, said that Alexandra is perfect.
