Alexander Week 38
September 25-October 1, 2004
I had a great week! I
love my new room, and to show my appreciation for all the hard work my parents
put into it I slept one night from 7:30 pm to 6:30 am the next day. I did
wake up once that night, but I had so much fun just looking around and talking
to my pacifier that I did not cry at all and fell asleep all by myself! My
mom and dad did not sleep through the night though because they were worried
about how much I was sleeping.
I get to know more and more of my daytime babysitters. On Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday I play with Brooke, Ashley and Bridget while my mom is teaching. The girls are really fun, but I do miss my mommy, and cry every time I get a glimpse of her in between her lessons.
A few developmental things. I can take a few steps when someone is holding me by one hand. And I can talk! I say "ma-ma" , "da-da", "ta-ta", "dai-dai" (which means "give me" in Russian), and of course my favorite "ba". I also make car noises and blow raspberries (very juicy ones). And it is not really what I say, but rather how I say it. I am very loud. My folks think it is very funny. The other people in the hotel this weekend didn't think so - especially at 5:30 in the morning.
