He Finally Smiled at the Daddy!!!

Jeeeze!! I have been feeling that this kid doesn't like me, and always screams when I get him. Well I think it turns out that evenings are his crappy time - "I am tired, but I don't wanna Sleep, so I'm going to cry instead."

Well on Weekends, the Daddy gets to see his son in a new light. Here's one gander from Alex at me while I was between garage projects.

Yay!! Happy Guy in Dad's arms. :-)

New blog

So I've decided to start this blog for family & friends to get Alex updates. My old blog will still be for other stuff, but I am pulling all the Alex posts and will try to migrate them over here. Also, this will be a joint blog, in that both Justin and I will be posting updates (hopefully not on the same days). My hope is that once Alex gets older, he can add his own updates (provided blogging is still around then).

So sit back, relax, and watch Alex grow!

Question of the day

What's 11.5 lbs and 23.25" of cute?

This guy:

He had his 1 month well-checkup (at 6 weeks, but whatever). He goes back to the Dr in a month for his first set of immunizations. I'm sooooooooo looking forward to that (not).

Visit at daddy's work!

Today I had my 6 week postnatal appointment, where I was cleared to, *ahem* resume normal activities. On the way home, I had to pass Justin's work, so I called him and asked him if it was a good day to show off Alex... or not. He said that while it was a bad busy day, things had calmed down, and he had some time. So Alex & I visited Justin as work for the first time. All his fellow engineers ooh and aahed (well, as much as men do) and said he needed a tiny hard hat & safety glasses. Well, I already bought Alex some sunglasses, but I bet I could find him a tiny hard hat.

I went to a children's consignment shop, and picked up Alex a cute little overalls & long sleeved onesie outfit, and it's quickly become our favorite outfit. Here he is in it, sitting on the couch:
In other news, we have been giving Alex "tummy time" a few times a week. Today I put him on his tummy on the couch, and he lifted up his upper body on his arms! He is getting to be so strong!
