On that magical day, 11/11/11, Alexandra learned how to take her shirt off. It started while I was watching Ballykissangel (Peter, a priest, couldn't drive to give a dying man his last rites, so he asked Assumpta, a highly skeptical anti-church woman who also happens to have a huge crush on him, for a ride. I really feel like you need an explanation for the stuff going on on the TV).

So anyways, here she realizes she just might be able to do it. And would you just look at that skinny little baby body? She is a slip of a thing, but quite tall. Her daddy has a birth mark just like hers, in that same spot.

Ooh. "Peek a boo, I see you, mama!"

Aww, look, a little pink wimple! Or a pink do-rag. Hmm. Sorry it's blurry, I was using my camera phone. THERE WAS NO TIME!

She did it! She cleared her noggin, all by herself. Look at my baby girl's expression. This is SO reminiscent of her newborn phase, with that cute little pursed mouth. My heart is melting. So, apparently, is Assumpta back there.

Ah, there's the triumphant expression I've come to know so well. "I did it mama! Thank goodness you caught it all on camera."
