All into fashion

Lexi with her little "purse" dog.
Well they said she would probably only be 10 pounds max.
Well the last time we weighed her at 6 months she weighed 17 pounds.
Uggh.

Dixie taking Lexi for a run.
Posing for the camera. She is all into fashion now.
Clothes seem to be a big deal to her now.
Especially love and peace.
It's a good thing that it is the right season for layers.
