Alexander has decided that walking Is the way to go. He has not crawled all day. Instead he has been walking and trying to run. After a couple of falls while trying to run he slowed down to a walk again.
Alexander is walking!
I’m not ready, I miss my little baby, but I love watching him grow and become his own person.
I had a mommy moment yesterday evening.
I had taken Alexander to grandma’s house for the weekend. All the way home I missed him more and more, to the point I almost went back to pick him up.
We went to Alexander’s cousins first birthday party this weekend. This really made me realize that I need to get my butt in gear and get to work on his party.
Alexander having fun at the party.
I curse like a sailor, really my dad was a Navy man for years, and I curse in front of Alexander. Some people think it strange, some think it rude, and some just think I’m a horrible mom.
Took Alexander and our niece Emma to their first comic convention. Emma had a blast and Alexander liked watching people.
Emma was Darth Vader and Alexander was the 11th Doctor. He didn’t want to wear the fez, but he wouldn’t let go of his sonic screwdriver. I wish I had more time to work on the screwdriver, put it together in about an hour this morning, but he seemed to like it and that’s all that matters.
Now I’m exhausted! Time for a nap, cause everyone else is already napping.
Alexander decided that he likes broccoli and cauliflower. I was very proud of him for picking up the bits, taking a bite, and chewing it! He has been hesitant to try real foods, but we finally have a winner! I think we will try pasta tonight.
In case you didn’t know teething sucks. It sucks for your baby because they are in pain and up all hours of the night. It sucks for you because when they hurt next to nothing will console them and you are totally sleep deprived.
So in short teething sucks.
Also I have come to the conclusion that the calories in a slice of cake, eaten in the early hours of the morning, do not count.
So I had a total postpartum depression meltdown this morning. It was in the parking lot of McDonald’s of all places.
One of the many things that I have learned since becoming a mother to a boy is that they pee a lot and it goes everywhere.
