Itsy Bitsy

As I have said Alex loves music.
I played lots of music to him when I was pregnant, just popped the headphones on my belly, and he would move to the music then.
Just this summer I figured out that Alex would sing when songs would start, and stop singing when they stopped.
He sings with me, he sings with his musical toys.
When I pulled out the video camera he got shy, and didn't give it his all, but here is a little taste of his beautiful singing voice.
Make sure you pause the music at the bottom of the blog........

Christmas Day

Started early, as in we were still up at 1:00 putting things together. Or Adam was. The Big boys were up at 6:00 sharp. I tortured them, and made them wait for the littles to wake up so we could all take part in the craziness together.














After opening we played with our loot........and ate pancakes......


(Noah put this over 1,000 piece Lego set together in about 6 hours)



We shot hoops in the living room.



We drank our milk before we hit the road.



A very snowy road.......To celebrate with the Pruitt side of the family.


Where more loot was found.......



more games were played......




Cousins laughed.......















Ending the night with another game of hoops.......One more Christmas in the books!




.


A Merry Day Indeed....



















Merry Christmas!

Christmas Eve

We did lots of hanging out. That's my mom, and my grandma.

That is my mom and dad.
It snowed all day.




We opened some gifts.









Max got two adorable puppy dogs, because that is his favorite thing, they just couldn't compare to.......


The real thing.






Somebody needs a puppy for Christmas.



We ate, and ate, and ate.










We played in the snow.












We snuggled.





And now the stockings are hung by the chimney with care..............

Swagger

It is happening!
He is walking!
He adds a cool swagger to his gate, its adorable I think.
Determined, full of courage, and such an inspiration!
Sometimes I see him go in one room from another, or coming down the hall.
He is choosing to walk 80% of the time! If he feels safe, he walks!
Just a month ago, he would only walk when asked or holding on to your hand or an object.
What a Christmas gift this is!!!!!!
You are awesome Alex, thanks for sharing your swagger on Christmas!

Sweet, sensitive, sad, silly boy.

He is a sensitive boy.

He loves music, he feels music.

There are some songs he finds have a sad tune, like Twinkle Twinkle Little Star. When that song plays, and if it catches him in the right mood, he tears up.

He LOVES the music on our local news station (the intro/exit music).

He gets so excited when he hears it.

Then at the end of the broadcast local children wave goodbye.

Then suddenly all the music, and all that waving is gone, and it makes Alex tear up.

Sweet, sensitive, sad, silly boy.....












He is awesome.
