Alexa's Uncle Brandon was in town to visit her last week. His first task was to teach us how not to pose for a picture. Check.
His next task was to have a great time with Alexa. Check. In fact, we were very impressed with how good he was at playing with her and keeping her from crying. Good job, Brandon.
Finally, he really loves his 8-8 Vikings.

Last year, we went to 2 games, and despite a great season and an exciting playoff run, we only saw 1 win. This year, the tables have turned in our favor. We've been to 3 games already, and we've seen 3 Dbacks victories. We're convinced that Alexa is the Dbacks good luck charm.
In addition to the enjoyable wins we saw, one of the Dbacks' sponsors, Taco Bell, gives away free chalupas on the nights that the Dbacks score 8 runs. To our surprise and nourishment (?), the Dbacks have scored 8 or more runs at each game we've been to. This past Thursday, as the Dbacks scored their 8th run, this guy pulled out this awesome jersey and put it on. It was very funny, and we had to get a picture. We could have lost the game at that point and no one would have cared because they were still getting their free chalupas.

Alexa was in charge of giving me the card. It was pretty slobbery by the time I got it.
Then Brad had me close my eyes while he got my gift. When I opened them, I turned around and saw a violin!!! I couldn't believe it. I have been wanting one forever and thought it would be a few years before I actually got one. Brad said he got a deal he couldn't pass up. I love it!
So, hats off to Brad for being a great husband and making my day very special.

Alexa had her Aunt Jamie, Uncle Mike, and cousins - Casey, Cory, Jessie, CJ, and Jake - come visit her from
Utah. We had a great time watching a
D-Backs game, bowling, and most importantly
SWIMMING! For some reason Jake wasn't in any of our pictures. We sure do miss them!

We borrowed a Bumbo recently from some of our friends. Alexa likes being able to sit up, mostly because she loves to see what is going on. It's when she can't see what's happening that she starts to get cranky.
She's just having a good old time.
The Bumbo is also what she sits in when we feed her. We introduced solids about 2 weeks ago and she's kind of getting used to them. Pretty much the end goal with everything she sees is to somehow get it in her mouth. So getting a little help with that is a good thing.
The look of satisfaction after setting a goal and reaching it.
