Having a week off with Alexa meant I was able to see exactly how she is changing. Grandpa aka Ba-Ba got to witness it, too.
For instance, she is a bread thief. I totally didn't know that.
We found a new park on Dad's first day here. It was situated behind some baseball diamonds that I drive past all the time. The park is a gem of its own, a hidden diamond so to speak. Different playground rides (for bigger kids, but as far as Alexa's concerned she is a bigger kid).
Lots of small, rolling, inviting hills. Run up and down? She doesn't mind if she does.
And finally, we found a slide with five stairs. Usually the stairs are a deterrent for her because they are "see-through" and zomg no, Alexa doesn't want to see through to the ground! But these stairs were the Goldilocks of stairs: just right. She climbed up and slid down at least half a dozen times.
And Ba-Ba was there at the bottom to catch her.
