I can't believe my baby is 8 months old!! Crazy to think we are closer to having a 1 year old then a new born!! She is getting so so fun! She has quite the personality! She can be very dramatic or very chill and relaxed. We love her so so much!!  Here are the latest and greatest in Miss Lexi Grace's life!

Rubadubdub Cousins in the Tub!

My sisters came down this last weekend with their families for Court and McCord motorcycle race. Even though we had bad weather and it rained the whole time we still had fun together. Once again I didn't capture very many moments on film but I did snap a few cute picture of Madden and Lexi in the tub. They are really starting to notice and play with each other. The babble and squeal at each other and get excited to see each other. Lexi LOVED being in the tub with Madden. She wanted to be right next to him and kept scooting really close! Madden wasn't so sure about sharing his tub toys!
 They are both getting so big!

The other night we while we were watching TV, Lexi was playing with her dollhouse. She sat there for 45 minutes trying to put the little people on the roof. Every time she'd get one up there she would knock it down again trying to put the next one up. Tip and I were laughing cause she had the most determined face trying to do it. Finally I stacked all the piece on the roof and she was delighted! She got the biggest grin on her face and she sat and starred at it. She was done playing now that she had accomplished what she wanted to do.

I hate that this is blurry but I had to post it anyways, I love it because it captures her cheesy grin perfect!!

Lexi LOVES baby dolls. She hugs and kisses them and can play for hours with her babies. She is always so excited to see them. I bought her a new one at Target the other day and she screamed in delight. People in the store were laughing because she was SO excited for the baby.

This is her latest "cheese" face. When she gets excited she scrunches her nose closes her eyes and gives you the biggest toothless smile! I love it!! She is so funny!

on the move....almost!

Lexi has been trying to figure out how to get moving.
She now can get up on her knees and rock.
She can't quite figure out how to go forward we have had many face plants.
I don't know if I am excited for her to be mobile.
I think she will be happier but I think I'll be in trouble!

She also LOVES to stand and hold on to things. She loves this little lion. She can either ride it or push it. She doesn't really go anywhere she thinks she is so big standing by herself!

Worlds Greatest Daddy!

Poor little Lexi had a major case of the stomach flu. She woke up yesterday at 5 a.m. and was really restless. She ended up sleeping in my bed for a couple hours. Then she wouldn't eat, and if you know Lexi she never denies food! It wasn't long after that that the throwing up started. Its so hard to watch such a little body puke violently. Her whole body would shake after. So we spent the day cuddling, bathing, doing laundry, trying to get her to drink water, and napping. We finally got her to sleep at 10 last night. Tip and I went to bed at 1030, I fell right asleep since I wasn't feeling so well myself. Around 3 am I woke up and Tip wasn't in bed. I couldn't hear him and panicked since he is a sleep walker. I got up to find him and discovered him asleep on the floor in Lexi's room. He was so worried about her throwing up and us not hearing her he decided to sleep on her floor. I wish I could of taken a picture. He is such a sweet Dad. It killed him to watch her be sick, and he even helped clean up the throw up. I sure love him. I love that he loves Lexi so much. She loves him too! When he comes home from work and come in the garage as soon as she hears the door shut she starts looking for him. He spends 2 whole days a week taking care of her while I work. He gets her ready even puts a headband on her. He is truly the worlds greatest Daddy!
