No more Chemo and a 10 Month old!!!

So this is an exciting post!!

I am officially done with Chemo HOORAY!! I can officially say I am cancer free and in a few months I can be officially done with this battle. I still have to under reconstructive surgery and a take and oral form of chemo but the biggest hurdle has been jumped. My hair has began to grow back so I am wearing it wrapped again. For awhile I was just walking around bald but now it just looks too crazy so until it shows some signs of normalcy I am going to keep it tied up.

In other news Alex is a 10 month old!!! OMG I can not believe how fast time has gone by. He will be 1 in 2 months and just thinking about it brings tears to my eyes. He is doing so much and I don't even know where to began. He is very independent and curious. He is also very silly. It is amazing how much of a personality he has. He really is the perfect combination of myself and Amir. I see so much of both of us in him. He is trying really hard to walk but still hasn't figured out the balance thing yet. He will
stand on his own for a few seconds and then lean forward. He can get around using his push toy or if someone is holding his hand.

He LOVES to eat. He is constantly looking for someone to share their food with him and he likes pretty much everything he has tried. We are also weaning off the bottle. I packed up all of his bottles the other day and he is strictly using sippy cups. He has not been too bothered by it so I decided to just go with it.

Here is a picture of Alex on Monday at the White House! My school took some students to the White House Easter Egg Roll and I took him with us.
