we used to call alex 'bean'. this was how big she was when we found out we were pregnant. the size of a bean. and it stuck.
then she was born and we called her lexi, and alex and lou lou and lou lou bean or bean bean.
here's our bean bean at 1 in the kitchen, trying to get the fridge to open with the will of her snack craving mind. they are so helpless at 1 aren't they?
and here's her today, at 7.
not so helpless anymore as she now helps herself to the fridge and a pan of scrambled eggs.
how time flies. i love my beanpole.
