We believe that Alex is going to be a climber. He can't even stand by himself yet, but he tries to climb on, over, around everything. It's actually kind of cute. I think I'm going to find him on top of the refrigerator someday.
We also believe that Alex was a beaver in a past life. He's learned how to stand up in his crib, and Jay found him gnawing on his crib. Jay is going to have to lower the crib to the final level and I'm going to have to find something to protect the crib.
I keep experimenting with new food for Alex. I tried Manderin Oranges this week. Oh my gosh!!! I've never seen him eat something so quickly. He's really getting good at chewing things now. I bought some mango, avocados, pears and peaches at the grocery store today, so I guess we'll try that. He still loves his puffs, and yogurt, but he doesn't like cottage cheese. He had some pasta this week also. He liked it but it was hard for him to pick up with his little fingers.
The medicine seems to be helping Buddy a little bit. We are actually able to get some sleep at night. It's obvious that he isn't all there anymore, but he still likes to go out to the barn and run and play. He's always been Jay's dog, but lately he wants to just hang out with me. I think it's because I was home for those 11 weeks, and I'm home most of the week now. I just hope we know when the right time will be. :(
