Who does Alex look like?

Alex says "thank you for all his kisses". He thoroughly enjoyed them, as I did.

I had a reasonably nice birthday only sullied by one thing which I am not ready to blog about just yet apart from to say a friendship that has been on the rocks for a long time finally disintegrated in a fiery blaze.

Hubbs gave me a new digital camera and Alex gave me a 2gb card for the camera. The best present of all though was the one I got just over 3 months ago - of course ;-) I also got the cutest little card that said "to mummy" which made me cry. I never thought I would ever get to see one of those.

Hubbs was so nice to me all day - he came home from the shop and looked after Alex for me so I could get some rest, and he even made up formula for him, and got up to him in the middle of the night too - yay.

We bought Alex a high chair too! Since everyone said that he could start solids around 4 months, we have been looking out for one, and we picked up a nice one at Target on special. So then the maternal health care nurse tells me that the age for starting solids has just been changed to 6 months! But we will see how he goes - we might still start a little earlier.

And now a question for you all. Who do you think Alex looks like?

This is me as a baby (actually the ONLY picture I have ever seen of me as a baby - i don't think there are any others!):
and this is Hubbs as a baby:

and of course this is Alex:
I think he is Hubbs all over. When I look at Hubb's baby picture it is like looking at a picture of Alex - just amazing. Guess he will never be denying he is the daddy huh!

What do you think?

I reckon he has your noes and chin. Maybe ears even. He does look a lot like hubs though.

WOW he is so much like your husband it isn't funny. Happy birthday for Monday too, sounds like you had a great day. Oh and those Mummy cards still melt my heart

As for the solids thing. As far as I am aware it has been 6 months for a very long tie. Definitely two years at least and my friend who's little boy is 7 was told 6 months also. Leave it as long as you can. Milk is so much easier than food early days and if he is thriving n milk don't mess with it just yet.

Alex looks like dad when he was a baby for sure!! No doubt about it.
He may change a little as he grows.
I too was told 6 months for solids, not looking forward to it, it means our kids are growing up..
See you soon
