What a busy week!

Okay, we're back to Alex-oriented "stuff"! We've had a busy week! We went to see Grandma & Grandpa Schurman, hung out in Grandpa's office, visited the photographer's studio with Granmda and Aunt Deb, Janice, and Donna to pick our family portraits, had lunch with Grandma Purdy & Nana...and the week's not over yet! We're taking Grandma & Papa Purdy out to dinner for their anniversary tonight.

The weather has been beautiful this week, so we've tried to spend time outside each day. We've taken short walks in the neighborhood, sat on the front porch, sat on Nana's swing, or at least had the windows open & the fresh air coming inside.

Alex has started really catching on to grabbing and playing with things this week. He's purposely grabbing toys (and Grandpa's glasses). He's learned that he can jump in his Jumperoo seat. He woke up & played with his crib soother rather than crying. He's growing up! Aaaah! He's gonna be in college before I know it! :)

We went through a few weeks of less-than-ideal sleep, but he's back on track again...sleeping 7 or 8 hours at night. Yay! Most nights he goes to sleep at about 10:30 and gets up at about 6:15. We'll see how long it lasts. He's getting pretty good at falling asleep independently in his crib, too. Good boy! :)
My Aunt Shari, who lives in Michigan, sent us a baby gift this week. I'm soooo in love with it! I was eyeing one of these tag blankets at Meijer the other day, but decided I didn't need to spend money on it. The very next day, Aunt Shari's package arrived with this ADORABLE handmade blanket in it. That beats a store-bought blanket any day!

By the way, when our family photos are online at the photographer's website, I'll post the password & link for you to view the pictures. They're awesome!

Here are some pictures from this week.

I don't think he's big enough for this menu, but the waitress left it on our table.

Oh my goodness he's getting so big! Doesn't it go too fast?
