This morning Jenna came to me while I was changing Alex and she says "Mom, I wish Alex wouldn't grow up. I want him to be a baby forever. It makes me sad." and I look at her and she just has big tears in her eyes. sigh... me too, baby. Me too.

It's crazy how quickly he is growing. He's definitely my biggest baby. The girls were both on the small side as babies (well, Marah still is), easily wearing their clothing to the month on the tags. The 0-3 months fit til the end of the third month, 3-6 fit thru month 6 and so on. Alex is only 5 weeks old and already is filling out most of his 3-6 month clothing! What are we going to do? Geez, the kid is going to run out of clothing way too soon for my preference. I guess I'll have to start buying the little boy some new clothes soon.

I'm definitely feeling this lack of sleep thing now. I try to nap during the day as much as I can, but there really isn't much time for that. The housework has definitely suffered and the place that I was once easily keeping clean has become a bit of a wreck. So of course, in turn, my energy level suffers from that as well. My motivation drains out of me when the place isn't kept clean.

He still sleeps well during the night. I can't complain about that. And really, he's a great baby. It's just that having my sleep interrupted every night is difficult. Not only am I a very light sleeper, I also take a long time to fall asleep. So when he wakes up and eats that takes about 30 minutes but it takes me another hour almost to fall asleep most of the time. Plus everytime he fidgets I wake up. We'll be moving him to a crib in his own room very soon though, so that should help a little bit with that anyway.

Okay, anyway, enough with that. Here are some pics I took of the chubby babe today. We weighed him and he is 11 pounds already!

A little watery eyed after I picked a booger from his nose.

Okay, gotta go! Have a lovely day!
