(I know this is supposed to be a post about Alex, but OMG that picture of little butterball Ollie!!)
The best news, of course, is that for the past 3 weeks or so, Alex has been doing about an 8 hour stretch at night in his crib. He still cries bitterly for a few minutes when I put him down for bed, and won’t let me hold him after 6 pm or so for fear that I might put him to bed, but hey! Being the villain is worth it for a decent night’s sleep.
He *loves* eating solids, but wants nothing to do with purees. He does really like baby cereal now, so it’s kind of funny how he started with real food and worked backwards to that.
Still not crawling yet, but he gets up on his hands and knees and rocks, before getting frustrated. I mean, it really looks like any second here (although he still gets around just fine by pivoting and or rolling). He can also pull himself up from a sit to a stand if something at just the right level to grab onto.
I can not believe that he has crossed the half-way point to being a one year old!!
