Growing Up

Alex has already been with us for over four months now. Although he is still a little small for his age I can't believe how quickly he is growing up. I love spending everyday with him. He is quick to smile and laugh and is a very good baby. Here are some things he likes to do...

Alex is a thumb sucker. Despite many people telling us that if we let him suck his thumb he will still be sucking it in the 7th grade we think it is cute. Not that we could stop him anyway. It is also nice not to have to worry about taking pacifiers with us everywhere we go.

He also likes to watch his Dad play video games (or atleast Brandon thinks he does).
Alex loves to be read to. Luckily, having a teacher for a mom means he has tons of books to hear.

Alex likes to be outdoors. Here he is watching his cousin play soccer.

Alex loves to sleep! He is still taking 4-5 naps a day and sleeping through the night. I am enjoying every second of it. (Except for a few days this week where he decided he needed to eat at three in the morning.)

Watching tv with his daddy. They are probably watching Phineas and Ferb.

Alex has a great talent for eating his foot. Luckily he had just had a bath in this picture.

This past week we decided to try feeding Alex some rice cereal. He seemed to like it alright. He would even grab the spoon out of my hand and hold it in his mouth.

With every bite at least half of it seeped right back out of his mouth.

Brandon also did some growing up this past month. He turned 26. Alex and I are so grateful for Brandon and all that he does for us. I am so lucky to be a stay at home mom and Brandon makes that possible.
