The Abraham Family’s Journey to Russia to Bring Home Their Daughter

May 27, 2009

Girly Girl? I think not!

Don't let this sweet smiling face fool you. Ms. Lexi is not a girly-girl.
She is a tom-girl through and through.

I present you with:

Exhibit A

Are these the knees of a princess?

and Exhibit B

It's gotta be tough trying to keep up with four brothers...
but she is determined to do everything they can do and more.

And these photos were taken after her bath, after all the dirt and grime were washed clean.

But she can still play the Diva role too.

She is Fearless & Bold and Sweet & Sassy

All at the same time, if that is possible

This should be a really fun summer!

Thanks for posting an update. She looks great and happy. Her big brothers are going to be looking out for her all her life!

Yes, it is going to be a fun Summer!

You certainly have been very busy. It was nice to read all about their activities. Colby has the same bumps and scraps as Lexi. I am so looking forward to the summer, after spending winter in Siberia, this should be a lot of fun!

Kristine said...

I have one of those little girls as well... a toughy that likes pink.

Love the last picture...great pool!

Ok I am glad Tatiana isn't the only one with skinned knees and elbows! She has so many scrapes and bruises I keep telling one of my friends that someone will call social services on me!! She just loves to run and play!!

Your diva is a DOLL in the pool!!!

I think Lexi and Sofia would get along really well . . like to do what the brothers are doing, but still want to be the diva in the house! As for your catch-up post - I got tired just reading it! I have no idea how you do it, girl! I think I'm busy and I only have one son who wants to be involved in everything . . .

Oh yes - a fun summer indeed!!!

she is too cute! we say our oldest girl, Alex, is a "rough and tumble" girl because she can get dirty, climb and wrestle like a boy but....still likes the girly things too! you may have yourself a "rough and tumble" girl too! they can take care of themselves!

How cute is Lexi? I love how she is showing her battle wounds. Too sweet.

I also enjoyed your photo collages. That had to take time. I loved the Peter Pan photos. Chucky Cheese and the Bouncers looked fun too! I'm sure you stay very busy with your crew!!

Joy said...

I can not believe how big she has gotten. The hair is beautiful!

Carrie said...

Looks like she is having a great time! She is so cute - love that last picture!
