Growing Up | Milestones (Part 1)

I am a bit behind in monthly, and yearly, updates. Yet, it isn't the only thing I'm behind on doing. The Winter months, while low key and freezing, always seem to pass by out of order. I think it's the lack of daylight and sunshine. So, while I am slightly out of order, here's an official update on the Royal Littles.

St. Patrick's Day | 03/17/2011

Alexander, now 7 months old, is growing by leaps and bounds. And chub. haha! He received the second dose of his Flu Vaccine today and I slipped him on the scale for good measure. He weighed in at 25 pounds and 12 ounces. He's been wearing 12 month clothing since he was 5 months old, and has almost outgrown them.

He's a happy little guy though. He loves to be tickled and he laughs the most precious laugh. He's been sitting for over a month now and is really reaching out around his bounds without toppling over. He's yet to actually roll. He can get on his side, but that's where he stops and grabs whatever is available.

He's also loving his food. Almost 2 months on solids now and so far, no adverse reaction to anything. *Except a contact rash around his mouth from Avocado. Alexander loves Peas and Sweet Potatoes, but really doesn't enjoy Green Beans and Apples.

It's amazing how fast the time has gone since Alexander was born. Super fast! I still feel like he should be itty bitty and tucked in my arms. Even so, he loves to snuggle with his Mommy and turns to hear my voice in any direction. A Mommy's boy, no doubt. =)

Alexander is fidgeting with his sleep schedule, or still trying to find one at the very least. I wish we could find one, but I think he just doesn't want to. lol! Sleep is over0rated anyhow and he's quite easy to put back to sleep, even every 2 hours.

Let's see, Alexander is clapping and starting to show more interest in signing. We've started with a few; milk, more, drink and thank you. So far, "more" is the only sign I think he's catching on to. haha!

Handsome Alexander. He. A Boy. After two girls, I still cannot get use to the switch in pronouns. :)

Happy 7 Months (and 9 days) Alexander!
