Well, Alex is quickly becoming a little man. Today he said a very well put together sentence that suprised me. He was trying to climb up onto the desk and I told him he needed to get down and he looked at me and said "Mommy, help me please". It may not sound like a big deal, but when most of his sentences are made up of imaginary words and inverted word order, the fact that he put that together and said please was very exciting. He also now has 2 chores, he feeds the dogs and puts away the utensils after they are washed. He is very good at sorting and does a great job. It is hard to believe what was a 2lbs 13oz little baby is now such a helpful, growing little man.
