Alexander Week 24
June 19-25, 2004
As many of you know, Nanny died on June 20th.
Our whole family feels very fortunate to have seen her before she died. I
will never remember it except through the pictures I have of the two of us, but
my parents will have some very precious memories.
This past week has been a big developmental growth time. I am sitting much better on my own, but sometimes I get so excited I tense up and fall. I am also moving around a lot. I can not quite explain how I do. It is not quite a crawl. I push and pull with my arms and can move surprisingly far like that. My parents are all worried now. My dad hurried up and put up a railing on the stairs and my mom lowered the floor of my crib so I can not pull myself over the side. They give me too much credit.
