Happy Mother’s Day!

The hardest thing once you take a break from blogging is to get started again.  After a month goes by, you start to feel like you are never going to be able to catch everyone up with what has gone on in a month.  After almost 2 months, it feels like an insurmountable obstacle.  So I decided, I have to just start again and not worry so much about catching everyone up on everything.

Alex is 16 months old.  He weighs about 25 pounds.  He is already wearing clothes that are sized 18-months,  but he does still fit into some of his 12-month clothes.

He is getting better at following directions and loves to help me clean.  He follows me around with a dust cloth and wipes things.  He is starting to sing with me when I sing to him.  He also loves to dance.  His favorite activities right now are probably “reading” books and playing outside.  He loves his sandbox that his daddy built for him!

He knows a lot of words and signs.  The words include: mama, dada, bye bye, toe, down, glasses (that you wear), glass (that you drink out of), grass, no, bubble, go, and row, row, row (as in your boat).  He also says, “La, la, la” when he is ready to go to sleep or take a nap.

The signs include: Dad, milk, bib, eat, banana, up, apple, cereal, dog, horse, bird, bunny, cat, fish, all gone, I’m wet, book, hat, baby, more, pig, thank you, hot, dinosaur, light, sing, please, bath, quiet, Mimi,… I know I am forgetting some!

I have lots of pictures to post, but I am going to have to find a new way to share them with you.  My Picasa album is just about full.  I have  posted a few new ones, and I will keep you posted if I change the location of new pictures.
