One Month Old

Alexander turned one month old yesterday. To commemorate the event, he made sure we had an all-night celebration! Good thing he's cute! However, cute doesn't even cover it. ADORABLE doesn't either. I just want to eat him up! (when I'm not wishing for sleep...)

The other two kids are so adorable too with Alexander. There is a song from the Talking Heads that just about covers it to a tee. Right now, it's #26 on the Playlist, but the video can be found here:

Stay Up Late by the Talking Heads

The lyrics:

Mommy had a little baby
There he is fast asleep
He's just a little plaything
Why not wake him up?
Cute, cute,
little baby
Little pee-pee,
little toes

Now he's comin' to me
Crawl across the kitchen floor.

Baby, baby, please let me hold him

I wanna make him stay up all night

Sister, sister, he's just a plaything
We wanna make him stay up all night
Yeah we do

See him drink from a bottle.
See him eat from a plate.

Cute, cute as a button.

Don't you wanna make him stay up late.
And we're having fun with no money.
Little smile on his face.
Don't cha' love the little baby.
Don't you want to make him stay up late.

Here we go (all night long)
Sister, sister (all night long)
In the playpen...woo...(all night long)

Little baby goes, ha! (all night long) I know you want to leave me... Why don't we pretend.
There you go, little man.

Cute, cute, why not?
Late at night, wake him up.


Here we go (all night long)
Sister, sister...woo... (with the television on)
Little baby goes...woo! (all night long)
Hey, hey, baby! (all night long)
And he looks so cute (all night long)
In his little red suit (all night long)

Christian has been singing this song for a couple months now - starting before the baby came. Last night he even modified it. Starting with the line: Little pee pee, little toes, he continued by adding: Little butt...little buttcrack. No, I'm not kidding.

Alexander Goes To First Grade (Already)!

On Friday, the day before he turned one month, Mom and Alexander visited Christian's first grade class. Alexander has been quite a celebrity to Christian, so I knew I had to let him show off his baby brother to his classmates:

And here's Christian in this photo, so happy to be showing off his little baby brother....

One Month Old - January 22, 2011
Alexander had an outing with Mom and Dad yesterday, 1/22/11 and being that it was the day he turned one month, we had to take pictures. I was even brave enough to get in on it, even though I'm. not. happy. with my frumpy post-baby weight.

My next entry, Alexander will be showed off in a special sweater sent to him from his Papa and Grandma Georgia all the way from South Africa!
