Alex is at such a fun age. He is constantly making me laugh (or cry depending on the mood he's in!). He used to wake up really grouchy in the morning, now he wakes up all silly and hyper(at 5:30 in the morning, I might add!). Although, he does need a bowl of cereal immediatly or it can turn to grouchy real fast! He is definately a moody 2 year old! He doesn't really have temper tantrums like Jaxson did. He just cries...and cries..... and cries. He is just a sensitive little boy. His new thing is everytime he gets in trouble he comes to me with his little puppy dog eyes and says " Be nice to Alex mom!" or "Say sorry to Alex mom!" He is really good to his little brother and absolutely adores his older brother. He copies everthing Jaxson does and says. He has started to be very independent. whenever he spills something he insists on cleaning it up, he insists on throwing his own diapers in the garbage,(I know, that should mean he would be old enough to be potty trained, been there done that, very traumatizing for the both of us!), basically he insists on almost everything being done in a very specific way or it could set off the tears! I guess that is life with a 2 year old! Besides all the terrible twos, he is such a great kid with such a cute personality!
Nelson is developing such a cute personality. He loves to explore and play with toys. He can't get enough of his brothers. He absolutely loves them. I am still his favorite person in the world, but he is starting to venture a little! There have actually been times he wanted Jeremy instead of me! (he really just likes to play with jeremys phone, but i pretend its just that he wants Jeremy to make him feel good!) He just had a dr.'s appt. and he weighs 22 lbs! That seems so big to me. The percentiles showed basically that he is short, fat, and has a huge head! Thats ok, I'm sure he'll grow out of it! He isn't walking yet, because he is a little scaredy cat, but he gets around plenty fast anyway. He has mastered the stairs and crawls up and down them all day long and laughs at his new skill. He is basically a happy kid, but he hates to sleep so he gets tired and then fights it like crazy so it seems like my whole day is spent trying to get him to take a nap. Once I finally get him to bed at night he sleeps great all cuddled up next to me all night long! SPOILED! He is growing up so fast it makes me sad! When I think about how I am responsible for these boys whole lives and for the kind of men they will become it is a really overwhelming feeling. I just hope I have what it takes! I sure am blessed though to have such great kids and a great husband.
