Ode to Alex

I missed getting to write this for his birthday, so I thought I'd write it today.
 Ninja Turtles at his party, waiting their turn to jump on the trampoline.

 I can't even imagine my life without Alex.  Life has really been full of ups and downs since he joined our family [pretty much never his fault, but they happened none the less].
Alex was so excited that he dressed himself in all red... yeah, that shirt is orange.  The fun part of being color blind!
I couldn't have asked for a happier, more easy-going kid.  He's always doing things that make Ian and I smile- or laugh- often without him even trying.
Apparently this is how he likes to sun bathe...

He's expressive, funny, cute.
Rocking at the doctor's office.

There is no middle ground when it comes to his effort level- it's all or nothing.  And if it's physical, it's almost always at full throttle until he can't manage another step.
Alex singing with much more enthusiasm than his fellow preschoolers at graduation.
His love of the world, his ability to push himself, his natural knack for figuring out games and puzzles are all so inspiring!  I'm so lucky to watch him grow and get excited just thinking about his future.
Our little Spiderman!
