Too big for his britches

Alexander has gotten so big in such a short period of time.  It's unbelieveable.  He is now on the cusp of being a little boy.  It's amazing. 
It snowed here yestereday, so I took him out for a little bit and he really loved it.  He usually wants to touch all the trees, bushes, flowers, and cars when we're outside...except in the snow, all he wanted to do was catch the snowflakes.  Very cool.  Plus, he loves his new skull and crossbones boots that my mother bought him.
He is also desperately trying to figure out how to undress himself.  This is how I found him recently after an afternoon nap.  I guess he was trying to devise a way to get the shirt off and gave up and went to sleep.    Note the unhappy face.     He also has figure out how to get around the child safety thing on our entertainment cabinet. Unbelieveable.  and this isn't all, folks.  He's discoverd that he can pull himself up onto our dining room chairs and has figured out how to turn aroud and sit on it like a big kid.
He has also learned the joys of drawing.  God bless the Crayola people and their ingenious marketing ways.  I love the first crayons that I got him.  Granted it says 18+ months on the package, but he's 16 months and I don't leave him unattended with the crayons.   I think my mom probably had me using regular jumbo crayons at 16 months, and I turned out fine.  No wax issues what-so-ever.

What a precious big boy! And those boots are rad! Your mom is pretty hip, huh?

He looks so much like his dad! And his hair just blows me away! How cute!

Thanks for sharing Alanna! I miss you!

they get big so fast! Just be careful with those crayons. I loved the idea when I bought them for Ian, but his tiny fingers were easily able to pry the crayon out of the holder. Once he figured that out (almost immediately) he no longer wanted to draw with them he just wanted to pull out the crayons which were a tine choking hazard. Crayola makes a ton of wonderful products though, we love the color wonder products and the extra chunky crayons for small hands.
