My sweet boy. I haven’t posted anything about him in a while and I really needed to. So here is an Alexander (or AJD) update for you all!
Age: 8.5 months
Weight: 24 lbs, 10oz (99+%)
Length: 30 inches (99+%)
Head: Large. (99+%)
Likes: Everything. He is the HAPPIEST baby. Food (obviously), the dogs, family (LOVES family and recognizes them), singing and being sung to, and is obsessed with being the center of attention. He will stare someone down and squawk at them until they notice him and smile. It’s a riot. He’s such a stinker. He also loves funny faces and funny noises.
Dislikes: Teething (seriously, I can’t even begin to tell you how miserable he is. This just started). Shots.
He’s slightly starting to prefer mommy on occasion, but still adores Ian. He will play with Ian for hours and I can’t begin to tell you how full my heart feels when I hear Alexander’s laugh from the other room when those to are together.
He still sleeps from 9pm-6am every night and then Ian gets him up, changes him, gives him a bottle and then he sleeps again until 8 or 9 am. He naps from 11-2 (ish) every day and then again at 5 for a hour or so.
He can sit up, roll over, but not crawling yet. Coos and sings and recent sounds like a little monster when he wakes up. (I’ll have to get it on video sometime. It’s hilarious.)
I am officially a stay at home mom- full time now and I LOVE IT!!!!! Now if he doesn’t take a long nap I’m not stressing out about phone calls I need to return or emails I need to get to. It’s glorious.
Life is sweet. So is my baby.
