Alexis is ready to take the title of "cutest gymnast ever". Look how cute she is in that little leotard!! Don't you want to just eat her up? Alright, now I'm sounding stupid. Sorry, I'm done. She's been to gymnastics twice and she seems to love it. Now she's swinging and climbing all over everything she sees (more so than she was before), in fact she's even broken our stair railing. It's been interesting to watch her because she acts the same with her teachers as she does with me. Most kids are at least a little reserved with people other than their parents...not Alexis. She pushes her limits there, just like she does here. Also she's so fiercely independent that I've noticed her telling the teachers not to help her a few times--I guess we need to have a review with her of what a teacher is supposed to do. But she is a good girl and she talks to the other kids, which I think helps them be a little more comfortable. This will be a learning experience for both of us because I'm so used to having my nose in everything she's doing, that it will take some adjustment for me to just watch from the sidelines and not jump in and help her or correct her. Maybe I'll learn to chill out a little bit, because I definitely need to.
Also, tonight Tyler was having a drink from Alexis' princess cup and he pointed at all the princesses on it and said, "Aurora. Aurora. Aurora." None of them were actually Aurora, but the fact that he knows her name is probably not a good sign. I mean, he doesn't even know his name is Tyler (he thinks it's Ty-Guy), so he probably shouldn't know the names of any of the princesses. Thank goodness it's his birthday in a month because he is in desperate need of some more boy toys. About all he has are these cars:Look how nicely he lined them up! He was EXTREMELY proud of himself. Then he took his hand and swiped them and sent them all flying...he was pretty proud of himself for that too.
