Today my little Alex is 5 weeks old. I have really enjoyed seeing the way he has grown and changed. He has gained over 2 pounds since he was born and is really thriving. As a proud mommy, I am gonna brag and list his accomplishments below:
- He recognizes voices, especially Daddy’s, J’s, and Papa Freddy’s
- He loves tummy time
- He turns over when he is doing tummy time
- He holds his head up for a loooooong time
- He is currently on chapter 15 of “War and Peace”
But the most amazing thing that happened this week is that I managed to capture his smile. Most moms know that the camera must always be charged and ready to go, specially when kids are under the age of 5. The candid shots are the best ones.
On Monday, right around bedtime, J was standing on his stool, looking at Alex (he’s very much in love with his little brother) and then said “Mommy look! Baby Alex is smiling!” I peeked down his crib and sure enough, he was fast asleep and laughing! So I ran to my room, grabbed the camera and started shooting…out of about 10 or so pictures, I got the one shot I wanted…
Happy 5 weeks my boy! I love you!
