Earlier this evening I told Alex that he was off the reservation. I felt guilty saying that, since it's not politically correct, but since someone made a comment about Native Americans in a previous post, I thought I'd go ahead and post it.
Since Alex was wearing a sleeper, the only thing that could make traction on the floor was his hands. So he just kept pushing himself backward.
Colton, one of our nephews, arrived yesterday to spend the week with us. He's the first first cousin that Alex has met. Colton seemed to actually like being around him! He fed him while we were out running errands and read books to him before naptime. And Alex likes having him around! I do too--he's been such a big help!
I love to take pictures of Alex sleeping, because he looks so cute. The top one is from a few nights ago, and I took the second one a few minutes ago.
Yes, we put a board in the back of the crib. Alex rolls to the right and then he gets his hands and legs caught between the slats. But this morning I found him horizontal in his crib with his feet sticking out the front. He didn't seem too bothered by it though.
We've enjoyed spending time with Grandmommy this week. Alex has gotten used to having someone new around and has really enjoyed the extra attention! Grandmommy played the piano and sang for Alex, and he was enthralled. So now Mommy needs to be sure to play for Alex!
