New words

Alex has now learned to say 'dis' to everything (this?) and repeatedly points at the Disney movies and says either 'wash (watch)' or 'voovie (movie)'. Once again...cute as always.

A Child's Prayer...

This past week, we were saying family prayer right before Alex went to bed. He was standing on the footstool right next to where Inna was sitting, with his back to her. After we said 'Amen' I looked up and saw Alex bow his head, close his eyes, mouth a few words, and then end with an 'Amin' of his own.

Oh, it felt like that room became even more special after Alex's prayer. I've no doubt that he was really communicating, too. Cute kid

The new Easter Bunny?

The only things Alex enjoys wearing more are his dad's smelly hat and shoes...

Where the Wild Things are...

Alex at his most innocent, sleeping with his stuffed friends...

The Dodges at Bridle Veil Falls...the conclusion



Alex after a long, hard, laborious, and cold trip to Bridle Veil Falls...














The angelic close-up. He was so tired that nothing would wake him up...














Proof how tired he was...one large teardrop after we headed to the car...














Why was he crying? Because he enjoyed running/walking (mostly running) along the path with each parent. The differences in height crack me up...











The Dodges at Bridle Veil Falls




Trying to get Alex to look at the goofy camera...














He finally looked...














...but only for a moment...then he started whining...















Until he got free!



The Ward Halloween Party, 30 Oct 2009




Alex at the BYU 175 Ward's Halloween party...the married ward.

















Alex and Inna...with a large piece of cornbread that I think he robbed from an unsuspecting young couple.















Alex loved his pumpkin costume but HATED the thing on his head. This is his attitude face.



















The evidence of his dislike...oh poor lil' boy.
