Alex is 9 months already?

I know it is hard to believe, but our little boy turned 9 months today. He is growing by leaps and bounds!  He has been a "roller" for quite a while now, but is getting pretty good at it.  He graduated to the next room at daycare, and it didn't take long for him to start picking things up from the other kids.  Alex can get pretty much anywhere he wants to go by rolling and turning around in a circle on his stomach.  This weekend he showed us a new trick, he is starting to get up on his hands and knees and rock back and forth.  Crawling can't be too far away!  I think he is the only kid in his daycare room that can't crawl yet, so he is very motivated to learn.  I prepared this week by putting safety plugs in all the electrical sockets, and padding on the fireplace and furniture corners.  Being a little boy I am sure he will get his share of bumps and bruises, but I will try to avoid them as much as possible!

Since my last post we have been very busy.  My mom came to visit the first weekend in February, so we decided to finally get our act together and have Alex's baptism.  We were a little nervous since church was right during Alex's naptime, but he did great.  He hammed it up for the congregation of course, and everyone loved him!  We celebrated afterwards with a soup dinner and cake.  Alex really wanted the cake, Uncle Paul saved him from taking a nose dive into it!  Sorry buddy, in three more months you can literally "dig in" to your birthday cake!

On a less fun note, Alex just got over a nasty cold and ear infection.  He had a cold and a terrible cough for almost five weeks!  We took him to the doctor after 2 weeks and they said it was just a cold, nothing they could do, and to let it run it's course.  Well two weeks later he was getting worse and running a mild fever.  I had enough and took him back to the doctor.  This time they said he had RSV and another ear infection.  Which means we get to see the ENT this week.  I see tubes in his future, but we will see what the ENT says.  I will do anything to avoid more ear infections, Alex is so miserable when he has them.  But enough of that, how about some pictures!

Watch out mom, I'm gonna take off soon!

Alex started to freak a little with the water on his head, but never cried!
