Two and a half months

In the blink of an eye, Alexander...

1. is turning into a little chunky monkey...I love pinching his sweet cheeks!
2. has amazingly started sleeping through the night every night for the last week. Both Stu and I cannot believe our luck.

3. has decided he'll only do one poo every few days. So when he does go, it's a giant explosive one. 

4. loves the little boy in the mirror.

5. is not really sure about selfies.
6. laughed for the first time a few weeks ago. He sounded exactly like me.

7. has discovered his arms and legs belong to him! Swinging his arms and kicking like crazy.
8. misbehaved for daddy when I left them alone and went out on a girly lunch date. Stu is still slightly traumatised.

9. is cooing and squealing like crazy. I so wish I knew what he's trying to say.

10. Sometimes though, there is no mistaking what he's telling me:
"No more photos, mama!"

Love his selfie face! It's hilarious when they discover their limbs. Who needs expensive baby toys when there are these delicious chubby wavy things to gnaw on?!

Poor Stu, mine were the same. When I went food shopping, they would go nuts, and dirty their nappy for Dad haha. Wasn't funny at the time. You look beautiful in the selfies Trishie! As for Alexander, he's definitely cute and looks to be thriving :D. I really hope he keeps up the sleeping through the night thing for you! Have a great weekend. sparkle2day.com

I love those moments, very fun times! I remember the "monologue", when my little one would babble and gesture and make such funny expressions - I am certain she was trying to communicate the secret of life, she meant every word of her babbling...Chrissie x

Jay said...
