Our BIG Weekend

Everyone has told me that kids Alex's age change so quickly. Boy - they weren't kidding.

By the time Sunday night rolled around Alex learned to do the following:

  • Crawl (and I mean real crawl - hands and knees, not the army crawling he has been doing)
  • Pull himself up to his knees (he will crawl to one of his toys and get himself to his knees)
  • Pull himself up to a stand using mom or dad
  • Walk holding onto mom or dad's hands
He wasn't doing ANY of these things on Friday. He even pulled himself up to a stand tonight in the bathtub!!!!
Here are a couple pictures of Alex pulling himself up to his knees. He did this all by himself.


Here's Alex playing with his new Elmo table. My cousin's little boy has this same table, and Alex LOVED playing with it at Will's birthday party. So, I found a used one on eBay and Alex is just stoked about it. Here he is - standing by himself!!!!

My little boy is growing up!!!!!

It is amazing! Babies are so incredible and they learn so fast. Show them once and then they are doing it! Savannah might like that Elmo table too. I will have to check out ebay. I am an ebay junkie anyway!

Love the photos!
