Alex's one month pics:)

Gramps with Alex at his "One month birtday party"
Alex's first "birthday cake". Let's admit him turning a month old is a great excuse for chocolate. And icecream of course....He loved it:)
Alex's one month fam celebration minus todd because it was the week of revival at our church and he had to be there early.

Alex in the church nursery.
This is when aunt jenn left:(..........He misses his aunt jen so much. He loves his budro.!
In aunt Jen's bouncer, that finally has batteries in it. He loves iT.
Jenn..I knew you would love love this pics. Can you believe how much he has grown?

Suprised by the world:)...

Alex blends in with our comforter. He is starting to really fill out in this pic. but he has added wait since then. This outfit no longer fits him.

I love his face in this pic. He looks confused.
He loves to sleep in the car seat. That is my old baby blanket he is wrapped up in.

His one month pic with the gingerbread man. Isn't that adorable.He is so much bigger than the last time I took that pic when he was two weeks old. check out his little tummy.

Being a mommy to Alex is so much fun. He is such a great boy. Sometimes I still can't believe he is mine. He is so smart too. He held his bottle by himself for the first time the other day. He also can hold his head up for several minutes, when most babies his age cannot. God has blessed us with a wonderful, healthy boy ,and I can't thank him enough.

Nursing is still an adventure. I am attempting right now to get himj on more of a schedule. We will see how that works out. Please pray for wisdom for me.

He misses his aunt jenn most of all. Jenn, your budro misses you and prays for you every day! WE are doing great. Alex went to his first youth camp this weekend. He was so great. Todd spoke to the signal mtn bible church youth about evanglism. Todd was Amazing, and the Spirit truly showed up. God moved in mighty ways. I love watching Todd serve the Lord and serving with him in prayer. I believe Alex is going to be used of God in big ways.....
Love you guys. My faithful readers.

Well. who knew nursing was going to teach me so much about God and myself. ...For those of you that need clarification, that would be the feeding baby type of nursing, not nursing like going to nursing school, which hilariously I once thought God was calling me too.k

It has defionatly taught me how selfish I am. Sometimes I just plain don't feel like sitting for 30 to 45 minutes nursing. Espicially in the middle of the night. But my little man needs me, and needs me to feed him. And he doesn't necessarily do it in my convenient schedule:). It has also taught me to learn to be patient and sit still. Sometimes I just want little man to hurry up...But I need to practice being still and patient and feeding my little man.

Now for the spiritual applications. Alex craves my milk every 2 hours on the dot...Hehe. It is like he has an internal clock. Peter says we are to crave the word like Alex craves my milk. Oh that I would be that desperate for the word of God...I need it in me..I need the belt of truth every minutes. I need to be walking in the truth for strength all day long.

In Isisiah, it talks about how a mom would not forget her nursing babe, and God does not forget us. I never ignore Alex's cries when he is hungry. I know he needs me. Think how much more God hears our cries, and gives us exactally what we need when we need it:)
