Alex continues to settle into his new surroundings. While we have made ZERO progress toward being a champ in the bathtub, he's made some huge progress in other areas! Here's a quick run down...
Car Seat: For a kid who screamed bloody murder during his first car seat experience, he now LOVES the car and the car seat. He gets super excited anytime we start making our way toward the car - as if he thinks there will be some super exciting new adventure just around the corner.
Eating: We're making strides here as well. Alex still seems to prefer breakfast foods over all else, but he's being a little more adventuresome in the food department now. Lots of room to grow here, but big strides this week, for sure.
Sleeping: No real problems in the department. He's always been a decent sleeper - and it continues here at home. After I put him in his crib (for either nap OR bedtime) he'll vocalize his complaint - LOUDLY, but briefly. It's almost as if he's trying to say "I am going on record that I disagree with this decision!" The tears end quickly, usually under a minute.
For the amount of things that were thrown at him in the past week, he's come through like a trooper. We didn't make it to the doctor this week, but we did make it out for his first haircut. Hoping to get to the doctor this next week.
Alex's reaction to his haircut...

Even though he's not smiling -- it's a good picture of the new 'do
Overall, Tatiana is handling life as a big sister with ease. She's informed her teachers and friends at school that "he's stinky". And she does NOT like it when he cries, however, thankfully, the crying is becoming less of an occurrence. She grew up while I was gone. Maybe it was the dutiful job of becoming a big sister, but some of her previous whining has gone by the wayside. I am not saying it's gone -- but she's made some HUGE strides herself.
I am adjusting ok. I've had my own moments this week that I am not proud of. I think I took over some of Tatiana's whining - haha! Why didn't anyone warn me how much work another little body would be. (KIDDING!)
More later -- tired mama needs to go to bed!!
