Well Alex had his first 4th of July! He loved it of course! On July 2nd we went over to our friends Aaron and Kendra's house for a grill-out and fireworks. Alex did really well with the fireworks, I think the bright lights bothered him more than the noise. However, after about 15 minutes he was not enjoying it any longer, so we went inside. On the 3rd we went over to my Aunt Glenda's house for a family get together and Alex got to meet his "cousin" Collins. I say "cousin" because let's face it, it's simpler. My mom and Sarah are 1st cousins, and Collins is Sarah's daughter. So we joked that Collins and Alex are "some sort of cousins". Alex wasn't too sure about Collins, but I think Collins loved Alex and thought he was her new toy.

Alex had his 2 month Well-baby visit this week. I think it was hard on the both of us since he had to get his first round of vaccinations! The good news is that he is up to 9 lbs 4.5 oz and 22 inches long! He is in the 5th percentile for weight, 7th percentile for length, and 16th percentile for head circumference. So he is still a little guy. But Dr Harrison said as long as he gains 1 oz per day, he is doing well. And so far he has surpassed that! The rest of his checkup went great!
