Standing Tall

It seems like Alex has grown up so much the past few weeks. Not only is he getting his first tooth (still working on it) and getting haircuts, he is also now pulling himself up and standing. He now does this ALL day long.

This is usually how we find him in the morning.

A Couple of Firsts

This has been a big week for Alex. On Wednesday we noticed Alex was getting his first tooth! It is on the bottom of his mouth and has just barely cut through the surface (so no pictures yet). Other than having a little bit of a cold he hasn't been fussy so we were surprised to see it. I will take pictures when it has cut through all the way.

We also decided to try giving Alex a little bit of haircut today. He has been blessed with a full head of hair since birth and it has gotten pretty long. Brandon and I had no idea what we were doing but gave it a go anyway. The before and after pictures aren't very different but we think it looks a little better.




We were terrified of taking too much off so it is still a little long.

8 Months Old

Today Alex is 8 months old. We can hardly believe it. Time has flown by. Alex is still a perfect baby. He is setting the bar very high for any future siblings. He is sleeping 12 hours a night and napping 2-3 times during the day. He is creeping and beginning to crawl. He loves to laugh, drool, and stick everything in his mouth (including Boo's chew toys). He is eating a lot of new foods. We have yet to find anything that he doesn't like. He is still small for his age but is finally wearing 6-9 month clothes. (We were sure getting tired of his 3-6 month old stuff). We are so lucky to have him in our family.

Here he is taking a bath. He loves the water and making a splash.
