On Sunday I finally was able to visit Loretta and meet little Alex. Loretta arrived home on the 14th of December, but between work, snow storms, Christmas and terrible colds (Loretta's,
Alex's and mine) it wasn't until Sunday that we finally got together.
Alex is such a cute boy. Did I also say big? I knit Alex a little sweater in a 12 month size. It will definitely fit now, but I don't know for how long. He loves to eat. No need for airplanes or trains with this little man. Just hold a spoon with food anywhere he can see and his mouth is WIDE open. And let me tell you, he'll let you know if Loretta is to slow putting that food into his mouth. He turned 8 months old on Christmas day, he's about 20 inches tall (well if he was standing) and is a solid weight. But those cheeks, most of his face is cheek.
He was napping when I arrived, but when he was fully awake, wow. He has a delightful laugh. I could barely take my eyes off of him. He's almost crawling. He can push his bum up into the air, and actually lift his head up and the same time, but then he doesn't seem to know what to do. Strange how you can watch stuff like that and it is so entertaining.
It was great to be with Loretta again too. Yah, she was there, but truthfully, I'm not sure what she looks like. LOL.
Loretta shared some of the stories about her adventures in Kazakhstan, including a trip looking for wild camels. There are lots more stories to come. We're planning to go out on Wednesday when I finish work so we'll share some more then.
