Anderson Ryan Alexander {3 months}

Seriously, it's been three months since I gave birth to this beautiful human. It's amazing how much they change from day to day and week to week. Anderson is the most challenging baby I've had yet. He will sleep all night…like from 9pm to 9 am…but will be up ALL DAY,  requesting to nurse every 30 minutes and will protest loudly when not being held by ME.  He won't even allow me to put him down, not even for a minute. NO JOKE! This is extremely challenging because I have a toddler who is a custom to scheduled meals, and prompt attention, and a tween who also needs all of my attention and help with homework. Did I mention I'm also responsible for all of the housekeeping and household responsibilities?? So, everyone is still adjusting to being told "I will get that for you in a minute" or "I will help you with your homework in a minute" . My mother-in-law put it perfectly when she said that "Anderson is so in love with you." I guess I hadn't thought of it that way, but it's true we are in love with each other….head over heels.  He is now over 18 pounds and so heavy to carry in the baby carrier/carseat.  His eyes are still blue, yet somedays they look like they are getting a green hue just like daddy. I hope they stay blue though. I'm so proud to have a blue eyed, blond hair little man.  Sometimes I feel like people might think that I stole him because I'm dark-skinned/dark eyed lady, and these people don't always see me with my husband, who is green-eyed with blond hair. So I enjoy watching people's double take when looking at my little Anderson and myself. He is also my most bald baby yet. You may or may not be able to tell, but he lost all of of his hair on the left side of his head. I'm not sure what that's all about but both Damien and Amar'e had full heads of hair with minimal hair loss. I'm not sure what to make of this half bald hair style Anderson is sporting.

I kiss those lips 300 times a day……LOVE LOVE LOVE him!

  1. This sounds so challenging! Go on mama you're doing a great job!

    1. So challenging. But on the other hand I now know what I am capable of. Being a stay at home mom is the hardest job I've had yet…and most rewarding! Thanks girl!!!

  2. My little boy wants to feed nearly all the time too, but not every 30 minutes so that gives me a little break between feeds and naps. Also my boy likes to be picked and curried so when he sleeps I like to put him down to allow myself to rest a little. Today I used my baby carrier and he slept there while did few things around the house.

    I hope sweet Anderson will be okay to be carried by someone else soon. A big mamma hug!

  3. Oh my gosh he is so darn cute!! He looks just like you but with blue eyes and blond hair LOL...he def has your lips! I would be kissing him all day too! Whole heartedly agree with Krysta...you are doing a most wonderful job Des...it is so very much worth it in the whole scheme of things in this life. The kids are blessed to have you home with them and if I remember correctly you were somewhat clingy when you were a baby...clingy to grammy that it...but don't worry little Anderson like you will soon be caught up in the going ons around him especially with Amare around to soon have a little independence to leave your comforting hold for a while...enjoy his sweet attention while you can... xoxo
