All the Martin grand kids Madison, Sam, Conner, Ben, Megan and Alexis who wasn't happy that we had Ben help hold Megan.
Mallori and Alexis
Brody, Alexis, Cambree, Mallori and Megan. Brody is only a week old here and is these girls second cousin.
Great Grandma with the girls. Grandma is the cutest lady ever! She was so tickled to have the 4 little girls over. Alexis loves going to her house too. Part of it is the guinea pig...who we think Megan is allergic to. Her poor little eyes and nose were just pouring after they got the pig out. So she will have to stay away from it.

Alexis goes to school!

Alexis started preschool last week. She was so excited that she had her backpack packed a few days ahead of time with spare clothes and toys...they didn't make the final cut though. She was ready for at least 2 hours before school started the past 2 times. She talks about her teacher all day and is so excited about learning. I have tried all summer to get her to trace letters and she wouldn't for me, but she will for her teacher. She writes her name on everything, even on a check out of our checkbook. She got to celebrate her birthday Tuesday since she is a summer birthday and got to bring a treat. She choose fruit snacks, string cheese and cookies. She wanted to bring a pinata, but I figured that was a no go...haha! All the kids are members and so is her teacher, one of the kids is in our ward so we are carpooling. I am loving her teacher and the excitement Alexis has about school!

little update!

Cute little girl in a swim suit...she didn't get in the water though.
Alexis wants her picture taken with Megan daily.
Oh the fun of having a tiny baby and a 4 year old. I still feel like all I do is nurse this girl, she loves the milky. Alexis is emotional when she gets in trouble for waking the baby up...probably because she is just trying to kiss her and has good intentions but anything that wakes this girl up is bad. She is a great sleeper at night but during the day, if you haven't noticed the lack of posts since her birth, she takes cat naps. 15 or 30 minutes here and there are normal. I try so hard to get at least one long one during the day. She still screams if she is even the tiniest bit hungry and we put her in the car seat. The smiles this baby gives out make up for it though. She coos and goos, giggles and sqeuls. She loves big sister and daddy, but is totally a mommy's girl...not just cause of the milky either! Alexis is over the moon excited about starting school. Last week she packed a lunch and her back pack, with toys and clothes, and announced she was ready to go and to hurry so we wouldn't be late. Britt has a new hobby, bow and arrows and hunting. He has set up a hay bail target and is learning to call elk. He really wants to get an elk this year, I hope he does even if it isn't my favorite meat...maybe he can go cow hunting, haha! As soon as I get our pictures I will post them!!! I am so excited. We copied you Leslie and ventured into the water...except we did it in the summer and the water was warmer. I just want to get in some reading time. I haven't read a book since Megan was born and I feel off. Ok well I have read the scriptures, just no pleasure reading.
