And so...on the eve of the 9th anniversary of my becoming a mom...a look back :)
And so what is Alexa like at 9? Way too smart for her own good! She is still an avid reader and devours books. After reading through the Lemony Snickett series this summer she is onto the Indian and the Cupboard series. I don't think she's come across a book she doesn't like. And she enjoys them in listening format as well. Her favorite gift at her party yesterday - her new cassette tape/cd player. Owning that has opened up lots of opportunities at the library. She not only excels in reading but also in writing and math. Alexa is a good friend, thought like all girls at this age there is sometimes drama. She is a great big sister - most of the time. And sassy!
