Alex turned 100 on Monday.  He’s ginorm…

Alex turned 100 on Monday.  He’s ginormous, over 13 lbs and in the 90% for length.  He’s getting his (late) 12 week jabs on Friday.  He is visually fascinated by things, but doesn’t yet grasp for them.  He likes to barf when doing tummy time, and can sit up against the couch for about 5 seconds without falling over.  He sits outward facing in the carrier, loves to smile at strangers who stop to coo at him.  He’s way cool with being held by everyone, and is laid back with strangers and our two *awesome* babysitters.  His face is fascinating – he’s starting to really come into his own with nuances of looks.  I can hear the differences in his cries, and he babbles constantly when he wants something – he really strains to communicate his position with you.  He loves to be massaged and have his legs bicycled (being colicky early on, we massage constantly), and his laugh is infectious.  He has a sleep schedule of naps during the day, and sleeps through the night.  I love pushing him in his pram, but even more love carrying him, feeling his happy warmth near me.  When he is asleep, I look at pics and vids of him – I am that much in love with him.
