the sweetest little thing

the ONLY good thing about alex’s recent clingy-ness and teething and cold? the cuddles. lots and lots and lots of time in mommy’s lap. and in mommy’s arms. and cuddling up around mommy’s neck. i LOVED those snuggles! every. single. one of them.


because you’re going through withdrawal (nana, especially), here are a few photos of my sweetest little one (taken on Wednesday morning):




and despite what SOME people think, that is her REAL hair. ALL of it. curly. straight. and THICK. (and many, MANY thanks to my mother-in-law for “treating” Alex’s on-going case of cradle cap while we were in Las Vegas for a weekend)!┬áisn’t she a sweetie (even though she doesn’t smile much)?


and in case you’re wondering, she’s 14 months old and

- weighs a little over 17 pounds

- wears size 6-9 and 6-12 month clothing (though 9 month footy jammies are too short)

- eats bananas, cheerios, chicken, green beans, peaches, blueberries, watermelon, shredded pork…. pretty much anything soft

- can army crawl but hasn’t figured out how to really crawl yet

- still prefers to be upright, on her feet

- can clap, wave, and raise her hands (well, at least one) above her head for “alex is SO BIG”

- says “buh bye” and “mama” and some gibberish

- will laugh harder and louder for her sister than for anyone else; davey comes in second; mom & dad are a very DISTANT third

- still wearing her size 0-6 month Pediped shoes

- has very NARROW feet

- still drinks milk from a bottle

- is not a fan of water or apple juice

- appears to get very frustrated quite easily
