6 months

Alek's version of crawling.
He LOVES watching his baby einstein videos. ( They are my new best friend!)

Happy Thanksgiving!!

It's hard to believe it is that time of year again! This time, we get to celebrate the holidays in the States! In Okinawa, you have all branches of the military shopping at one store, the base exchange. You can imagine what that was like during the holiday was pretty much a suicide mission! So anyway, we are glad to be back in the states for the holiday season. I am so thankful to have my family close to me (within a couple hours flight anyway). We are doing a low key thanksgiving this year, for once. We decided to just have it be us, since every other year it has been a huge gathering, which dont get me wrong is nice, but I am looking forward to not " stressing" over everything in the kitchen this year! We are not doing the "traditional" turkey, instead we are doing ham for Thanksgiving and duck for Christmas. Yummy! I am so extremely thankful to have such a great family and wonderful friends! I count my blessings every day, I have two handsome little guys that are full of energy and healthy. Happy Thanksgiving!!

Just a little update. Alek is doing good, he has figured out how to get around in his walker ( as you can see in the video). Sometimes he will just take off in that thing and run! It's hilarious, he is bull legged and he takes off running. :) He is doing good though, doing something new every day and amazing all of us! A little bummed out because the Michigan trip wont be happening this month. Some other things came up that I need to attend to. But I will keep everyone updated!

So a friend got Alek this little thing you can put food or whatever you want in, and he can chew on it. We put a pedialyte popsicle in it, and he loved it. He couldnt figure out why it was so cold and was getting so mad! haha! His teeth are hurting him right now, so I am willing to try anything to help make his teeth feel better ( and me get some extra sleep). :)
