Nine Months Already!

Yesterday AleXander turned 9 Months. He's now been around as long as I was pregnant. I swear the pregnancy lasted longer because it wasn't nearly as pleasant. SLOW DOWN X-MAN! Stop using your Growth Accelerator Powers! He's also cut his teeth (bottom two) way earlier than his brother and sister. Sure, he cut his teeth when other babies do, but way early in this household. Mikelle was 12 months and Christian was 11 months.

He's now into EVERYTHING. Childproofing is a must. In some cases, we have to childproof what we childproofed. I was also worried his early standing skills would yield walking by now. Thank goodness that hasn't happened. He can't even stand alone yet. Let's hope he continues that trend!

Last week Papa and Grandma Georgia came in for a two day visit. They went to Mikelle's school to have lunch with her on one day and Christian the next. The night before, we went to San Tan Flat for dinner. This is where we took the pictures below. I love the "goofy" picture, because even AleXander participated!

And Mikelle and AleXander:

Mikelle, Christian and AleXander:

I love this picture of my X-man because he looks so much like his brother!

I finished another large Circle Motif for SunDust Gallery. When I took it in to the framing spot to get matted today I realized I made this one too large for the frame size I use! When I was completing this motif, it felt as if this particular circle felt more challenging when I did it. However, I thought it was just because I only had one contact lens in the last couple of days and my eyesight was really paying the price. But no, it's because I measured the circle wrong (and yes, my eyesight was cranky the last couple of days). This just means I have to buy a larger frame for the matte they cut. Therefore, it means I have to watch the frame sales again. Oh well.


  1. He is so cute! What a great smile.

    I like your circle motifs! Very cool!
