Alexa and I had a great summer vacation while I was off from work. We went to swimming classes, Gymboree, and played at the water park at Pinecrest Gardens. The swimming lessons started out wonderfully. Alexa would happily go under water and play with the teacher, but after 3 classes she started dreading going to class. She would cry throughout most of her lesson and refuse to go with the teacher. It got a bit better toward the last classes, but she still cried a bit. Gymboree on the other hand was a big hit. She loved to hear the teacher sing and to climb all over the gym equipment. I decided to keep her in the program and we are now going after work.
Paul and I took a little vacation this summer. We took a weekend cruise aboard the Majesty of the Seas. We stopped at Coco Cay and Nassau. In Nassau we had a wonderful time. We spent the day at the Atlantis Hotel. Paul went down all the slides while I relaxed on the edge of the pool reading my book. Together we braved the river rapids on an inner tube ride. It was a great day!
Alexa has grown a lot over the summer. She is now 31.5 inches tall and weighs 24.5 pounds. She is running around the house babbling all the time. Her vocabulary is growing, but she still prefers to show you things and guide you places rather than talk. Also, if you look at the photo gallery under "One year old" we have added new pictures.
