6 Years and A Month

Alexander turned 6 on July 11. I meant to do a post then about him, but it was a crazy time.

For right now he is obsessed about Batman and becoming a Fireman. He'll tell you stories about how he had to put out a fire and save one of his firemans. He's such a joy to be around. Very smart for his age. He's sensitive too. He senses my moods and if I'm crying he'll usually break down. He loves God and loves to learn.

My water broke surprisingly on a Sunday afternoon. Derek and I drove to the hospital to find I was already dilated to a 4. He was born the next day at 5:06 p.m. He was 4 weeks early, but healthy. I thought I had plenty of time to buy the essentials so some friends had to bring us a car seat so we could leave the hospital! I sat in the back seat with him in his car seat to "watch" him (like he was going to escape his car seat at a day old).

Him and Ashley are starting kindergarten this fall. He's already said that if anybody messes with his sister that he will "take care" of it. Part of me is said he is no longer a baby or even a toddler. I'm happy though that he loves Jesus and takes praying seriously. I'm excited to see the boy he's becoming. God truly blessed our lives when he gave us Ander.
