Alex is 5 months old!


Saturday Sept 30th. A bath - see Alex show off his strong neck muscles! Playtime in the activity saucer. Alex's favorite thing to do is chew on the orange star. Grannie and Nagypapa came over for lunch and Alex entertained them by "talking", drooling, napping, laughing, and chewing on his toys.
Friday Sept 29. Hooray it's Friday. Naps, daycare, smiles for Dad.
Thurs Sept 28th. Napping with Grover (from Rachel and Jon). See Alex wear his hat "Kangol" style (at least that is what Kathleen calls it).
Sept 27. Four pictures, morning, afternoon, two in the evening! Is it just me, or does Alex resemble a member of the Lollipop Guild with the hair on top of his head?
September 26. Drooling, drooling, drooling. Alex drooled so much they had to change his shirt at daycare. Still no teeth yet.
Monday Sept 25. A fairly typical Monday. See a picture of Alex's daycare building, Tiny Tots Playroom. Alex was so tired from the weekend, and daycare, he came home and passed out. See Alex's "faux-hawk" since his hair is getting longer on top.
Sunday September 24. A visit from Toots (GJ) and Poppie! Trying on a new hat, some naps, and of course, drooling. Alex had a good visit. Posted by Picasa

Alex is 21 weeks old!


Saturday September 23. We had a busy day. First, services at Beth El. Alex went to the babysitting room and did fine. Then a nap, then we went to visit Spencer after his birthday party we had to miss. See Alex hold his bottle some more. Rose and Beth were also at Carrie's, and Alex had lots of smiles for them. See Spencer on the BMX track near his house. Natalie had a new purse from Grandma that she loved.
Friday September 22. A big day. JD installed Alex's new car seat since he has outgrown the infant carrier. See Alex in his swing at daycare! Then, Rosh Hashanah. See Alex grab for the Kiddush cup! See Alex hold his own bottle - he is so advanced! Then some reading, and of course, sleeping.
September 21st. Alex is Gigantor Baby! See him stand on the chair arm! He is also trying to roll over, but not quite yet.
September 20 and 21 morning. Dad went to NY for two days, and Alex was glad to see him return as always. Alex just can't stop drooling either. It was the chilliest it has been since May, so Alex had to wear his cap that GJ knitted him. Very stylish. Also, Alex wants to give a big shout out and "Happy Birthday!" to Spencer Cahoon who turns 8 today - Sept 21st.
September 18 and 19. See Alex get a bath in his new big bathtub, he has already outgrown the baby tub. Alex is wearing the cute plaid outfit Auntie Shaz got him. Posted by Picasa

Sept 11 and Sept 12. Not much new, we've had some chilly weather (63°F) so Alex had to wear pants for the first time! The fleece ones Dane and Jenny sent us came in handy.
Sunday September 10. A visit to Grannie and Nagypapa in Kensington. Alex smiled and stood up and entertained us by talking and being cute. He enjoyed wearing the outfit Rachel and Jon gave him. Posted by Picasa
