Valentines Day

Even though Alex is by far the cutest member of our family I am going to try to make an effort to not make this blog completely about him (just mostly about him). Yesterday was Valentines Day and luckily Brandon had the day off so we could go have some fun. We have both been sick lately so we were looking forward to getting out of the house. Brandon's parents were kind enough to watch Alex during the day for us. We started off the fun by eating lunch at McGrath's Fish House. Even though every other patron was at least 90 years old it was delicious as always. We then saw "The King's Speech." Even though I was a little worried it would be boring, we both really enjoyed it. It was a fabulous day spent with my best friend. This is an old picture (I forgot to take any yesterday). I am so lucky to be married to Brandon and have Alex in my life.

9 months

We can hardly believe it but Alex turned 9 months old yesterday. This, of course, meant another doctor's appointment. Alex had a blast exploring a new area until the doctor came in. This time he was very shy and held onto Brandon.

Alex is in great health and is even getting a little fatter. Here are the stats:
Weight 18.1 lbs 14%
Length 27.5 in 25%
Head 17.7 in 42%

The doctor gushed about how cute Alex is. Many people tell us he looks like the Gerber baby. He is also very curious and active. He loves to explore. Everyday I set out tons of toys for him to play with but he would rather explore the house looking for new things. He doesn't like to be held which makes church a lot of fun. He is still sleeping 12 hours at night and taking 3 naps during the day. He is quick to laugh and even plays with Boo a little bit. He talks a lot! He is always babbling. He is still a great eater and we have yet to find a new food he doesn't like. These past 9 months have been the best ever and we are so excited for the future.
