I can hardly believe it but Alex is six months old!! I told Michael a few weeks ago that Alex basically was almost a year old & not far from graduating high school. He says I have a tendency to be over dramatic. I don't see it.
Alex is a busy guy. He can sit up by himself & is already a pro. He's still army crawling & he's started climbing on pillows. It probably won't be long until he's climbing on the furniture! He lets you know when he wants to be picked up - he crawls over to your feet & starts to fuss. He still loves to be outside. I bought him a small pool yesterday. He liked to sit in it but didn't want to move around much, but today he got a little more adventurous. I think he's going to be a water baby!
We have to keep a good eye on him - he loves to find shoes on the floor to chew on & he thinks electrical cords look like fun. He has toys all around him but he likes to play with anything that's NOT his toy - ha. He's eating cereal twice a day & a veggie or fruit once a day. He's tried sweet potatoes, carrots & bananas. He makes funny faces with the potatoes & carrots but still wants more. He liked bananas at first but about halfway through, he decided he was not a fan. I don't blame him - bananas are gross! Here are a few recent pics.
Six months old!
Paper is delicious
Already feeding himself with a spoon (ok, not really...)
