Alexander and Jordan
February 13-26, 2006
Alexander: Things are back to normal now.
I have my mom and dad back full time. I am in daycare. I sit on
Jordan as much as I can...
Last weekend we went on a road trip to St. Cloud to go with mommy while she rehearsed for a concert. We had to sit in an empty room and wait, but at least we got out of the house. The next day we went over to Ethan and Kyle's house. Their parents are friends with my parents, and I like to play with their sons. They then came over this Sunday to play while our parents visited.
I should mentioned that every night my parents read to me before bed. Right now my favorite books are "101 Dalmations", "Kiss, Kiss", and "The Cat in the Hat". Everyday I ask them to read them to me, and fortunately I am so cute that they read them to me every time I ask.

carpet and putting it in my mouth. Stairs are a constant source of anxiety
when my parents suddenly can't remember if they shut the gate and come running
into the living room to check (although, they never forget - they just get
I am really learning to appreciate how the world looks at 5am. That is the time that I get up most mornings. Actually, I like to see the time change to 5am, so I get up a little earlier. This means a couple of things can happen. Either I lay there and cry until I am picked up or my parents come running in to get me up or they come running in to take me into their bed. More often than not it is the last two choices.

We both had a good time splashing a lot.
2. Why are you taking a picture right after I got out of bed? I haven't even had time to do my hair.
