Alex is becoming such a big kid now. I was just realizing the other day that he has gotten big enough that I no longer have to lift him up to wash his hands in the sink. I also had to move up to the boys section in the store when I bought him some new underpants the other day.
Tonight as I was getting Abbie ready for bed he sat down in the glider, pulled up his shirt and asked to feed Abbie. I suggested that he go downstairs and get a baby doll and feed that. In the end he settled on his blue "care bear". I thought it was totally cute, and no I did not set this up just for the photo op :)
Alex has also really been bonding with our male golden Zed lately. Often when he takes his afternoon nap he will call Zed into his bedroom and shut the door to keep him in there. Tonight I went to check on him and he and Zed were happily sleeping together in Alex's closet. I am so glad that Alex and Zed are getting close. Some of my fondest childhood memories are of my dog Candy who used to sleep in my bed almost every night.
