One Month Young

Alex turned one month old on Friday!! I can't believe it has been a month since we were at the hospital. It seems like forever and yet no time at all...

He is really amazing. It has been so much fun to watch him grow. He coos quite a bit now and smiles when you kiss him on the face and neck, so we have spent many hours doing just that. He follows things with his eyes and often has a heavily furrowed brow as if he is thinking really hard about what he is seeing. He seems so alert and interested in everything going on, which has been the case since the minute he was born.

He has held his head up for as long as thirty seconds at a time, and when he is on his back, he tries his hardest to roll over by flinging his arms and legs around. He gets frustrated when he tries so hard and doesn't seem to get anywhere, so I'll give him the tiniest boost and over he goes. He's not sure about being on his tummy and immediately tries to roll back over by pushing off the floor with his foot. Usually he can't get enough traction to flip himself and ends up scooting himself across the room. I am always afraid that he will get rug burns on his pretty little face, so I end up giving him a nudge until he is back on his side again. One of these days he will be able to do it on his own...

There is no such thing as too many pictures of that beautiful boy! Happy Anniversary and happy 1 month birthday to Alex!!! I hate that I am missing any of the celebrations.
Just remember that feeling never changes no matter how old your babies get!
