I guess I need to come up with something a bit more exciting than … “ Another week’s gone by and Alex is another week older”, but it’s 9pm on a Sunday night … my creativity is gone. Feli and I are really enjoying watching as Alex continues to grow and develop. He’s definitely grown this week. I swear that each day that goes by he looks a bit different. The smiles are coming a bit more often and he seems to be sleeping a bit better, though he still has a long way to go.
Bunu and Buna are still really enjoying getting to spend time with him. It’s cute to watch Buna as she’ll sometimes look at him and start to tear up. She says she’s going to miss him so much when they leave. Fortunately it’s another six weeks before that happens.
Firsts Big firsts for this week were a trips to: IKEA, the National Arboretum and Home Depot (twice … it’s been one of those weeks). His other big first was a trip to church where he generally slept through the service, until he decided he was hungry. He then downed a bottle and let for the biggest burp I’ve heard from him ever … right at the end of the pastor’s sermon. Fortunately it was a tape instead of a live service.
Ups Our little guy is growing almost constantly, or so it seems at least. There have been a couple of days this week were Feli and I both looked at each other and said that he’d changed in just the last 24 hours.
Downs Just when we thought he was getting to the end of his whiney period, it came back. Of course, that appears to have been because he’s hit his second growth spurt, but still.
