Can't believe he's 4 months!

...and he weighs 17.5 pds! That was a shock to me when I went in for his 4-month doctor visit. He definately didn't enjoy the shots, but after a few minutes of crying (histerically) he fell asleep for a few hours, and did pretty good the rest of the day. I totally forgot to mention on my last few posts that Steve got a job at Jeppesen!!! (He keeps reminding to post about it, and I always forget...) It will be 2 months that he started, and he enjoys it a lot. We are all very greatful and excited for this opportunity for him. He is still planning on getting his CFI in the next few months, and after that he can instruct on his time off and accumulate more hours that way. I have been working from home still for Oppenheimer Funds, for 2 1/2 years, and it has been a good fit for me. My grandma arrived from Brazil this week and she will help me take care of Alec for the next few months. Lately, Alec has decided that he doesn't want milk from the bottle, he wants the real thing, so it has been hard when I have to leave him somewhere...He used to like the bottle better and all of the sudden he doesn't...oh well...I'm trying to find him a special bottle that he will take...hopefully it will work!!

Enjoy the pics!

We tried this purple seat...he didn't enjoy it much

He does enjoy this exersaucer, which he borrowed from his cousins...

Like father, like son

Getting ready for Rick's wedding...
I finally got to dress up and put some make up had been a while...

Oh Busy Life

It's been crazy around here lately, we have absolutely no time left for anything else other than working full-time, taking care of Alec, eating and sleeping. Any extra second we have, we just want to relax....boring, uhm! But I LOVE IT! Alec has been such a happy boy, smiling and giggling, and talking to us in his own language (a mix of Portuguese and English...heheh). He definately knows how to cry loud, but thank goodness it doesn't happen very often. He has rolloved over a few times tummy to back, and he demands tummy time so he can try to start crawling... he can move his legs pretty good, but still doesn't know what to do with his arms. I feel so grateful to be have him in my life, he is such a special child and I can't get enough of him!
Here are some pictures of our 3 and 1/2 month old handsome boy...

He was actually laughing here!

How sweet...some tummy time!

Deep asleep...

His 1st Valentine's Day!
