In April, Alex began saying things that sort of sounded like words,
like "dada" on April 8th !
- April 10:Alexander was Christened this morning at Asbury
united Methodist Chuch by Minister John. Bill W, and Jessie were the godparents,
and alex behaved through the whole ceremony (he actually seemed to like
all the attention) He wore his mother's mother's father's Christening
outfit which he wore in 1903. Alex's mother and aunt Jessie also wore the
same outfit for their christenings. We had a reception at the house with
hors d'oerves and sandwiches. Alex sat in the middle of the room most of
the time laughing and smiling at everybody.
- April 22: Alex
tried Squash for the first time
- April 26: Alex's
first tooth started shining through today. The front right one isn't covered by
any gum anymore.
- April 27: Alex recognizes his own name and
turns when we call him.
- April 28: Alex tried a little bit of
broccoli today, which he fed himself. He seemed to like that a lot.
