Mr. Alex is a great eater and sleeper. Everything I prayed for...since my sanity was in question after the twins...ha! He eats 3-4 ounces every 2-3 hours and goes 3-4 hour stretches at night. When it comes to night feedings he is fed and goes right back to sleep in his crib.
I am awaiting those first smiles from him soon....can't wait to see it. I am soaking in my cuddle time with him and kiss his sweet cheeks as often as I can. I forgot to mention he was born with an Angel Kiss birthmark.....this is a red mark that is on his forehead and between his eyes. According to what I have read the birthmark will fade away as he gets bigger and I am noticing it already has faded greatly. When he gets mad or stretches then it flares back up but I am surprised it has faded as much as it has already.
This morning was my first attempt at taking all 4 kids out by myself. We went to story time. It was so much work to get out of the house by 9:00. I put Emily and Alex in the double stroller, held Mandy and Cassie of course walked once we got to the library. Things went pretty smoothly until Alex started fussing to be held and Emily wanted to be held as well. By the time we got home 3 out of the 4 were crying for their cups of juice and a bottle and all 3 needed to have diapers changed. I was sweating after our morning! At least I know I can get all 4 out by myself and survive!
