A few new pics of Alexander

Thought I'd share a few new pics with you guys. Alex is getting stronger everyday. I haven't gotten his weight for today, but yesterday he was at 3 pounds, 15.9 ounces. He will be 2 weeks old on Wednesday, and this has probably been the longest 2 weeks of my life. I just can't wait to get him home. I will be so glad when I don't have to drive 30 minutes to the hospital! When he comes home, him, Aaron, and myself are staying inside for a month just to recover from all of this!! Anyway, here are some pictures of the little cutie. :)

Here he is smiling at me!!
If you look really close you can see him smiling. He was awake, too (which is rare!), but I happened to take the picture in the middle of him blinking!

Here's the handsome little man sleeping.
Thanks to everyone for all of your kind words and prayers. Having a child in the hospital isn't the easiest thing I've ever done, but it will be over soon and he will be home where he belongs! I am so anxious for Aaron to meet Alex I can hardly stand it! I wish he could see him in the hospital, but you have to be three to go into the NICU, so Aaron is about 8 months too young. :(
Hope all of my bloggin' buddies are doing great! I'm going to try to scrap some pictures this week when I have time-can't waste time and get behind now that I have TWO handsome men to scrap! I'll be sure to share them when I get done. Thanks for stopping in!

Becky! I missed that Alex made an early entrance -- so glad he's doing well and you'll get to take him home soon. He looks totally adorable! Take good care of yourself -- I'll be keeping you in my prayers!

Big hugs!

Becky, Alex is such a handsome little one! I can't imagine how tough it must be to not have him home, but he will be home soon, and you'll be busy, busy! I hope that you are feeling better.

TY for the sweet comment you left today. I really do appreciate all of the comments you leave, and I'm happy you like my cards!

Wow! He's already grown a lot! Before you know it he'll be ready to come home with you. How exciting that will be. Hang in there.

Stampin hugs, Becky:)

He's absolutely beautiful and bravo to you for holding it all together. I know I'd probably be a huge mess. Take care of yourself and thanks for stopping by.
