Eeee Gads!

I've really got to get better about
updating this blog. I thought that I hadn't written in a few weeks...but I realized it's been a couple of months! Holy frijoles!

Alexander is over twenty pounds and is in the 90th percentile for weight and the 70th for height. He's a big boy. He's now sleeping in his crib in his own room. I don't like it, but it's better for

him this way.

He's fascinated by drums. Whenever Chris uses his practice pads, Alexander will stop everything to watch. Or if Chris wants to watch an instructional drum DVD, Alexander wants to watch. Weird, right?

He also loves books, which I am so glad to report. He likes to lie in his playpen

and look at his cloth books, which is especially nice because then I can take the dog out to pee at the end of our driveway and not worry.

I'm doing well these days, but I'm having trouble even wrapping my head around WW. I'd like to blame all my carb and sugar cravings on nursing, but deep down I think it just might be an excuse.

They are so cute together. Glad to hear he's so healthy!

Sweet precious baby! He's going to grow up to be the most handsomest rock drummer ever, eh? I'll be his 3rd biggest fan, behind you and daddy! Is that your bro in the last picture?

Nursing is supposed to burn a bunch of calories, isn't it? Maybe that's why you have all the cravings. Cut yourself a little slack sometimes, but never give up, mama. That's the key!

Sounds like you are doing all things right. Putting Ian in the crib was hard, but lay the groundwork now for good sleep habits for life. It certainly worked for us.
I also remember wanting everything sweet when nursing. But after a while I found that I was burning a ton of calories with it so hang in there. Ian nursed for 14 months. It just gets easier and easier.
