Day 151

Dear Daddy,
Today was a relaxing day after our busy weekend. We woke up and Mommy found out that we wouldn't be watching Kayden today because she woke up sick. Poor Kayden =( Her and Kelly have been really sick lately. So Mommy and I just kind of lounged around all morning. I watched Cars with Uncle Curt while Mommy took a shower and then we ate lunch. I had some chicken nuggets and whole wheat pasta. It was so yummy. Mommy was very surprised that I ate all of my lunch.

I kind of threw a fit at nap time, but got over it quickly. Then when I woke up we headed to the grocery store. Mommy got me some new Earths Best Sesame Street cookies. They are organic and great tasting at the same time!

Guess what Daddy? When we got home from the store we got to skype chat with Aunt Natalie, Grammy and Aunt Anna. Aunt Dee Dee was at her friends and Grandpa was outside so I didn't get to talk to them. I loved talking to everyone though. I even got to see Peanut. I laughed when I saw him. I thought that was so neat.

Since I ate all of my dinner Mommy let me have a sugar free popsicle for dessert.

I love you and miss Daddy. 2 more weeks! Mommy and Lana miss you too.

XOXOXOXOXO
Love
Alexander

Day 150

Dear Daddy,
Mommy and I slept in until 9 am again today. Mommy loves all this sleeping in we have been doing lately.

I was happy to get to talk to you this morning. I love talking to you. I always ask Mommy to talk to you and Mommy says you are sleeping or are at work. You sure do work hard Daddy.

Today we went to Kayden's family's house for Kelly's baby shower. I had lots of fun. I got to go swimming and play with Kayden and have cake and chips and sandwiches and fruit. Kayden is coming over tomorrow while her Mommy goes to the doctor. I can't wait! I love playing with Kayden.

I was pooped by the time we left their house after the shower. It was about 5:30 and I fell asleep on the way home. I hadn't had a nap all day. Mommy is hoping I sleep well tonight.

Guess what Daddy? The chain counting down until you get home is high enough now that I can't reach it! Mommy says thats a good thing because it means there aren't too many days left until you come home to see us!

I love you and miss you Daddy! So do Mommy and Sissy!


XOXOXOXOXO

Day 149

Dear Daddy,
Mommy and I slept in until 9:15 today! Mommy woke up and realized how late it was and got up and then I decided to get up too. After we ate breakfast (I ate 3 waffles!) we talked to you for a little bit and then we got ready. I started throwing a tantrum so Mommy was worried about how I would be fore my pictures later today.

After lunch it was nap time. Mommy felt bad though because I actually took a good nap and she had to wake me up so we could make it on time to get my pictures taken.

I wasn't too cooperative with the photographer though. Mommy said they got a couple of good ones. She emailed you the pictures link. She hopes you like them. After my pictures I decided to throw a fit while we were in the middle of Babies R Us looking for gifts for Kelly's baby shower. It was a BAD fit and nothing made me happy. Mommy was not pleased with me.

When we got home I threw fit after fit over the littlest things. Until Grandpa came home from work and took me outside to work on the boat.

I love you and miss you Daddy. So do Mommy and Lana.

XOXOXOXOXO

Day 148

Dear Daddy,
How are you? I am good and so excited because a little over two weeks til we get to see you!

Today I woke up around 9:30 because I was up til almost midnight again. Mommy thinks she is going to have to try letting me cry again instead of trying to get me to go to bed herself. She thinks Im testing her again.

We went to lunch with Amy and Jen today at Souplantation. It was yummy. Aunt Amy took me to get pizza and I ate 2 pieces! I also ate some pickles (my fav!) and some chicken noodle soup.

After my nap Mommy and Grandma and I went to Target so Mommy could get me some shoes that will match the outfit she picked out for my 2 year pictures tomorrow. And while we were there look what Mommy found for me:



Thats right Daddy. Lightning McQueen slippers! I love them. This is how much:

I love you and miss you so much Daddy. So do Mommy and Lana.

Day 147

Dear Daddy,
I was up late again last night. I went to bed for about an hour and half at first and then Mommy heard the bedroom door open but I never came into the living room so she went to the hall and saw me sitting in the doorway smiling at her. Im so silly! So she cleaned up all her crochet stuff and took me back to bed and I still didnt go to bed til almost 1130.

We had my swim lesson today. Miss Lori said I did so good. I go right to her off of the step and go right under water when she tells me to swim. Mommy is so proud of me. I still cry when I get back to Mommy but she knows Ill eventually get over that. I am doing so well and Mommy is so happy.

Mommy is excited to get my pictures done on Saturday. While we are waiting for my pictures we are going to pick something out for baby Davin for Kelly's baby shower that Mommy is going to on Sunday. She was going to take me with her since Kayden will be there, but its right at nap time so she doesnt want me to have a melt down in the middle of the shower. So Grandma said she wants me to stay here and play with her :) She said we could watch Cars too.

We had chinese for dinner. It was yummy yummy. I love chow mein and orange chicken.

I love you and miss you Daddy. So do Mommy and Lana.

XOXOXOXO

Day 146

Dear Daddy,
Well today was supposed to be Gymboree day, BUT I was up until almost midnight and then slept horrible so Mommy didn't have the heart to wake me up that early. She said I looked so peaceful and sound asleep and didn't want to disturb me. Mommy said thats okay though because we got to hang out and play.

We had a good lunch. Mommy made me some pasta with parmesean cheese and she tried to get me to eat veggies again, but that didnt work. She has tried everything, even chopping them up really really fine and hiding them in other foods and I am still too smart and find them.

Mommy had a drs appt this afternoon so I stayed with Grandma. We had fun and she gave me my snack and some water and I was a happy camper.

I love you and miss you Daddy. So do Mommy and Lana.

XOXOXOXO

Day 145

Dear Daddy,
Today was a day for swim lessons. Mommy had to wake me up at 915 since I was still sleeping. I didnt go to bed until almost 1230 again. Mommy hates this phase of me not wanting to sleep. She is really getting annoyed with it.

Miss Laurie said I did a lot better today. She said she can tell Im not as tense and that Im not as scared. I only cried each time when I got back to Mommy because I wanted Mommy to hug me and hold me. But then I was a good boy and sat back on the step until it was my turn again.

I was whiny a lot today and when I was eating dinner I kept pointing to where my 2 year molars are coming in so Mommy knew I had been whiny because of my teeth.

Here it is again almost 10pm and Im still awake. Mommy is not too pleased. I think its funny!

I love you and miss you. So do Mommy and Lana.

XOXOXOXO

Day 144

Dear Daddy

Today I slept until 10 and I only got up then because Mommy made me get up so I would take a nap later in the day. But Mommy knows its because I didn't go to bed until midnight because I just refused. She has had such a hard time getting me to go to bed lately. I just want to spend all the time I can with her because I love her!

After I finally got up we ate a very small breakfast and then played until lunch. I didnt eat much lunch either. Mommy thinks I may be cutting my 2nd molars because I am not eating much lately and because I have started getting really upset again when Mommy brushes my teeth.

She made an appointment with a pediatric dentist for a couple of weeks from now. Then a few days later I have my 2 year well check and then a few days later you will be here!!! I cannot wait Daddy!

I love you and miss you so much. So do Mommy and Lana.

We should go now because Mommy needs to try to make me go to bed again. I got so upset earlier when Mommy tried to get me to sleep that I puked all over Mommy (twice) and then Aunt Krista. I thought it was funny but they thought it was very stinky.

XOXOXOXOXO

Day 143

Dear Daddy,
We woke up at 9 today. Mommy was so glad to sleep in. We didn't have anything planned again today. It was the 2nd half of our relaxing weekend. I barely ate any of my breakfast but I did very well at lunch so Mommy was happy about that.

I gave Mommy a fit about nap again (and bedtime tonight), but shes hoping that stage will be over soon.

After nap I went outside with Mommy and helped her clean the wheels on the car. Can you believe that the wheels were so dirty after only 1 week? Grandpa said it is because the brakes are so new. Then Grandpa and Grandma came outside and they all watched me "wash" my car. I had a great time and ended up soaked from head to toe.

Mommy came inside and folded laundry and I stayed outside and played with Grandpa. Then it was dinner time and then time to talk to you. :)

Like I said earlier I gave Mommy a very hard time at bed time. Im still waking up and coming out to the living room where Mommy is. She is not too happy.

I love you and miss you Daddy. So do Mommy and Lana.

XOXOXOXO

Day 142

Dear Daddy,
Today was the start of our nice relaxing weekend. We didn't do much of anything today hence the relaxing day. Mommy did go to the store while I took a nap. She was so nice Daddy, she got me a Grave Digger monster truck and a plane to play with.

Then when I woke up Mommy and I got to work on our chain counting down the days til you come home. I had so much fun with Mommy making that. We get to take one chain off every night after bath so we can count down the days til your R&R. Here are some pictures.








I gave Mommy a hard time at bed time because I didn't want to go to sleep. But I fell asleep rather quickly. I love you and miss you Daddy. So do Mommy and Lana.

Day 141

Dear Daddy,
I know Mommy said that she was going to start taking more pictures today since she has been so bad about it the last few weeks. But we woke up sick. Yuck! We were just sick :( Mommy said that we are going to have a nice relaxing weekend at home not doing anything so we can get better. Mommy said she is gonna make me some chicken noodle soup and get me some orange juice at the store when she goes tomorrow to pick up a couple of things.

Only 3 1/2 more weeks til we see you Daddy! Mommy said for sure tomorrow we are going to make a count down chain so I can cut off one chain every day until your R&R. Mommy told me to tell you that she will take pictures of us making the chain.

Since we were feeling okay around lunch time we went to the mall and Mommy let me go in the pet store and see all of the animals. I loved the dogs!

Mommy knew I wasn't feeling well tonight though. I wanted nothing to do with my dinner and I was starting to run a low fever. And here it is almost 10 at night and im still up. Mommy said we have to get a new copy of my Cars movie...mine keeps skipping...Mommy says we play it too much and it got worn out :o)

I love you and miss you Daddy!! So do Mommy and Lana!

Day 140

Dear Daddy,
I woke Mommy up at 7am today! She was not too happy since I kept her up til midnight. I just would not go to sleep no matter what she tried so she let me play til 1030 then we went to bed and finally fell asleep at midnight.

After we got up we played until we had to get ready for swim lessons. Miss Laurie said I did better today and she could tell I am getting a little more used to it.

Mommy promises she will start taking more pictures. She has been bad about it lately and she feels really bad.

We have so much planned for when you are here Daddy. But we want to just have lots of relaxing time too so you can have a good time before you have to go back.

I love you and miss you so much Daddy. So do Mommy and Lana.

Day 140

Dear Daddy,
Today was Gymboree day and Mommy wasn't sure if we would make it or not because she woke me up at 8 and I told her no and rolled back over and went to sleep. I am such a silly boy! She was finally able to get me up around 8:45. We made it to Gymboree. Today we pretended to be ducks. Mommy said when you come home for your R&R that you are going to go with us to Gymboree. I can't wait Daddy! You will also get to see me go swimming with Miss Laurie at my swim lessons. Hopefully I will be okay with going under water by then.

Of course after Gymboree we went to Submarina for lunch. Then we went home and played til nap time.

I got to help Grandpa work on his friend's jet skis while Mommy took Lana for her walk. Mommy has to find a way to be able to handle the stroller and crazy sissy Lana who wants to go the opposite way of the stroller that way I can go for her walks too. Aunt Krista said she would start walking with us so that I can go with Lana too.

I love you and miss you so much Daddy. So do Mommy and Lana. XOXOXOXO

Day 139

Dear Daddy,
Only 27 more days til we get to see you! :) I can't wait! Im very excited for Sea World.

Today was my 3rd swim lesson. I wasn't too happy. I cried the whole time because I didn't like going under water. Miss Laurie assured Mommy that I will eventually get it and it will just take repetition for a while. She says she gets lots of kids that are really scared.

After that we had lunch and went home and played. Mommy let me buy some ABC flash cards (that I love very much!) from the book fair at the swim school.

I then took a nap and Mommy went to the gym while aunt Krista listened for me to wake up. When Mommy got home we played and Mommy vacuumed out the new car. She is being a freak about how dirty the car is getting already since its black interior.

I love you and miss you Daddy. So do Mommy and Lana.

XOXOXOXO

Day 138

Dear Daddy,
Mommy tried to get me to go to the gym daycare again today and as soon as we walked in i started screaming. Mommy went in with me and tried to get me to play but after 10 minutes of constant screaming she decided it wasn't going to happen and we left. We went to the grocery store instead.

Then we went home and Mommy made me some chicken noodle soup for lunch. I had some grapes along with my soup and I ate every bit of my lunch. I gave Mommy trouble going to sleep at nap time. Its a routine thing ever since she took away my binkys. She is hoping I will grow out of this phase.

After my nap, Mommy and I went to Walmart to return some stuff that Mommy bought that didn't fit her. She let me get a toy since I have been doing so well at my swim lessons. Its a Cars race track. She almost got me a stool to stand by the sink to wash my hands.

i love you and miss you Daddy. So do Mommy and Lana. We can't wait for your R&R!

XOXOXOXO

Day 137

Dear Daddy,
Today when I woke up Mommy told me you would be getting on to talk to us soon. So I excitedly got up and went out to eat breakfast. When you got online I got the best news ever!! You are coming home to visit for a couple of weeks in about a month. I cannot wait!! I miss you so much Daddy. I can't wait to play with you with my cars and my dinosaurs and go to the park and run around and play with you. Mommy said we are going to go to Sea World too. Im so excited Daddy. Mommy said as soon as you get your ticket bought with the exact date we are going to make a chain to count down til when you come home. I will get to take one chain off every day.

Mommy was able to get my carseat installed in the middle seat in the new car so she was very happy about that. She feels much safer with me in the middle than on the side.

After that we took a drive since Aunt Krista and Kevin wanted to ride in our new car. We just drove around for a bit and went and saw Tali and showed her the car.

I was a good boy and ate all my dinner and went to bed easily for Mommy.

I love you and miss you Daddy. So do Mommy and Lana. Can't wait to see you even if its only for a couple of weeks!

XOXOXOXO

Day 136

Dear Daddy,
Today was our beach day. It was so much fun. Mommy can't wait for you to come home so we can take you too. Mommy already sent you all of the pictures. I had so much fun playing in the sand and the water with everyone. I had fun riding in the boat too. And I got to see lots of other boats and some planes and helicopters too.

I didnt even take a nap and I was such a good boy. As soon as we got in the car i crashed though and slept the whole way home.

I love you and miss you Daddy. So do Mommy and Lana.

Day 135

Dear Daddy,
I was such a good boy and let Mommy sleep in today. When we woke up we ate breakfast and played with my toys until you got online. Then we talked to you for a bit until Mommy had to get in the shower. We had to be ready by 1130 so we could go to lunch. We met Amy and Erin at Souplantation. I had lots of pizza and some pickles and I loved Mommy's croutons from her "salad".

I wish you were there though Daddy because you always go sneak me some strawberry lemonade in my cup. Mommy forgot to do that for me.

Don't you just love our new car Daddy? When Grandma got home from work, Mommy and Grandma and I all went for a drive in the new car. After about 10 minutes we went home and I got upset and said I wanted to keep driving. So Mommy and Grandma took me over to where they lived when Mommy was little. I love driving in the new car because I finally have a window that I can see out of and Mommy rolls it down and I love the wind blowing in my face.

I love you and miss you Daddy. So do Mommy and Lana.

Day 134

Dear Daddy,
Today I had my second swim lesson. Miss Laurie worked with me on going under water. I didn't like it too much. I cried because it scared me a lot. But Laurie was so nice and held me close and made me feel safe.

When we got home it was nap time and I took a good hour nap so Mommy was able to get in some cleaning.

Then when Grandpa got home, Mommy and him went to get Mommy's new car! its so nice Daddy. Mommy said she would take pictures for you tomorrow and post them for you. By the time they got home it was dark out so she couldn't get any pictures.

I love and miss you so much Daddy. So do Mommy and Lana.

Day 133

Dear Daddy,
How are you? I miss you. Today was our new Gymboree day since I have swim lessons on Thursdays now. I liked my new Gymboree class. I like all of the kids in my class. Me and one girl in my class were running towards each other and ran into each other and hit our heads. We both cried but then gave each other hugs and we were okay. Then of course Mommy and I headed over to Submarina for lunch.

When we got home we played with my golf club set until nap time. After nap Mommy let me have a popsicle and then I played with Grandma while Mommy went to Walmart to return something and to get some milk and get a couple of other things. Mommy wanted me to go with her, but I told her no that I didn't want to go so Grandma said I could stay with her.

When Mommy got home Grandma and I were outside playing. Mommy stayed outside with me until dinner time. Then after dinner we played inside until bath and bed. I gave Mommy a hard time tonight with bed time. I didnt go to bed until 10pm. Mommy wasn't too happy.

I love and miss you Daddy. So do Mommy and Lana.

Day 132

Dear Daddy,
I was so excited when I woke up today because it as my first swimming lesson. Mommy had been telling me about it for a while. After breakfast we got ready and headed over to Floaties. Mommy got me dressed in my swim suit and swim diaper and I went and met my teacher Laurie. Mommy wasn't able to get any pictures though because they had Mommy put on her swimsuit and sit on the edge of the pool in case I needed her. But I did great and didn't even cry.

When we got home we ate lunch and I helped Mommy vacuum until nap time.

Then while I stayed home and played with Grandma while Mommy went to the gym and took Lana for her walk. Maybe since Im being so brave with swim lessons, Mommy will try to take me to the daycare at the gym again.

I love you and miss you so much Daddy. So do Mommy and Lana.

Day 131

Dear Daddy,
Monday Monday. Today we woke up and turned on ESPN because the race was on. I love watching the race with Mommy. I can't wait for you to get home so I can watch the race with you too.

I was secretly happy that Tony won but shhh don't tell Mommy :)

After the race we had lunch and then played until nap. I decided to throw a HUGE fit right before nap and I eventually fell asleep in Mommy's arms.

After nap I played with Grandma while Mommy went to the gym. Don't tell Mommy, but Grandma gave me a couple of skittles. I loved them. Then we had pizza for dinner. Of course I didn't eat mine, I mooched off of everyone else though.

Then I played with Grandpa outside while Mommy talked to you online and then I talked to you for a bit before bath. I love you and miss you so much Daddy. Mommy and Lana do too.

Today we slept in again and then got up to talk to you. After that Mommy took a shower and we watched Cars until lunch time. I was a good boy and ate most of my lunch. After lunch it was nap time. When I woke up from my nap Aunt Krista got me because Mommy and Grandma weren't home. They were shopping for my birthday presents!! Mommy says I am going to love everything you guys got me. I can't wait for my party in a few weeks.

Mommy says we are 1/3 of the way done with this deployment and that makes me so excited! i love you Daddy. I keep asking Mommy for you to fix all of my books that i ripped pages on. I want you to fix everything. Anytime I break something I run to Mommy and say "Daddy fix it?" Mommy thinks its so cute.

After Mommy and Grandma got home we played outside for a while. Mommy was making fun of Aunt Krista because when they were shopping I pooped and Aunt Krista had to change my diaper :op

Then we had left over chinese for lunch and then we played until nap time. After Mommy got me down for my nap, she left for Marissa's baby shower. Grandma watched me while Mommy was gone. I got to have pizza for dinner. When Mommy got home I was so excited to see her! I missed her. I cuddled with her until bath time.

I was a good boy and went to bed really quickly for Mommy. She knew I was tired since I only took a 20 minute nap today.

Day 127

Dear Daddy,
Today was supposed to be Gymboree day, but Mommy and I both slept through the alarm clock. We woke up at 9:30. 9:30 Daddy!!! Mommy has no idea why, but we must have been really tired. We never sleep that late. Well there was no way we could be ready in 15 minutes so we just skipped Gymboree today.

The swim school called today and they have an opening now on Tuesday and Thursdays so starting next Tuesday I will be going to swim lessons 2x/week for a month.

Tomorrow Mommy said we have to go to Walmart and the grocery store. We have to get a baby shower gift for the shower Mommy is going to on Saturday and Mommy needs new jeans since the ones she has are too big for her now and we need to get a new car cover for your car. It should be a busy shopping trip. Im always good though.

Grandma ordered pizza for dinner tonight. it was really good.
I love you and miss you Daddy. So do Mommy and Lana.

Day 126

Dear Daddy,
Today Mommy and I still weren't feeling 100% well so we didn't have anything planned. We woke up and talked to you and ate breakfast and then Mommy showered and we played with my cars.

I wanted pasta for lunch so Mommy made that for me and I ate it all up. I also had some applesauce. Then it was nap time. I threw a small fit but eventually laid down and went to sleep. Then we headed to Babies R Us and got my new carseat! I haven't ridden in it yet, but Mommy has it all installed and is going to put my other seat in Grandma's car so Grandma can take me places in her car too.

Then we had dinner and I played outside in the boat with Grandpa until you got online.

I gave Mommy a little trouble at bed, but was asleep by 9 and slept all night. Mommy says she thinks that she can "officially" say we are free of binkys!

I love you and miss you Daddy. So do Mommy and Lana. XOXOXOXO

Day 125

Dear Daddy,
Neither Mommy nor I felt much better today so we relaxed and just tried to get better. I did a lot better last night I went to bed at 9 and didn't wake up at all crying like I have been. Mommy is hoping this is a sign that my binkys are forgotten.

Mommy let me have a couple of popsicles today because I told her my throat was hurting. Mommy looked at my throat and she said it was a little red, but no white spots or anything so she thinks its just sore from the post nasal drip from my nose being congested.

We both laid on the couch and watched Cars after we had our popsicles after nap. Then Papa came home and took me out and let me play in the boat. I had fun doing that.

Mommy ordered pizza for lunch since she didnt feel up to cooking so we had that for dinner too since she ordered a medium pizza.

Well Daddy, I love you and miss you. So do Mommy and Lana.

XOXOXOXO

Day 124

Dear Daddy,
Mommy and I both woke up not feeling well at all so we didn't do anything all day. We did get to talk to you in the morning though so that helped cheer us up. We did do a lot of snuggling on the couch today and watching tv.

After my nap, Grandma watched me (since I still wasnt feeling well) and Mommy went and got some more vicks refills for the humidifier and she picked me up a smoothie hoping it would help with my sore throat since it was nice and cold and easy to swallow. I drank it pretty quickly so Mommy knew it must have helped some :)

I had some soup for dinner and after that we laid around some more and relaxed.

Mommy was glad I went to sleep by 9 tonight instead of midnight. I love you and miss you Daddy. So do Mommy and Lana.

XOXOXOXO

Day 123

Dear Daddy,
Since last night was night #1 with no binkys Mommy knew Id be up late-I stayed up til midnight. To Mommy's surprise I didn't cry or ask for them though. Im still up right now too for night #2. Mommy knows I'll eventually get the hang of going to bed easily without them though. She is just happy I'm not crying or asking for them.

Today we didn't do too much. Mommy thinks I'm starting to get sick. I have a runny nose and I am a little hoarse sounding. Mommy hopes I feel better by tuesday since we are supposed to go to our first play date with our new play group.

Mommy, Grandma, and I went to walmart this afternoon. We were looking for a life jacket for me for when we take Grandpa's boat to the bay in a couple of weeks. They didn't have any though so Mommy said we will have to go to the sporting goods store this week sometime.

I love you and miss you Daddy. So do Mommy and Lana.

Day 123

Dear Daddy,
How are you Daddy? I am good. We are all good. Today we slept in and then got up and ate breakfast and talked to you on skype for a while. Then we got ready and played until lunch.

I only took a half hour nap today and Mommy was a bit worried because today was Gymbo's Birthday party at Gymboree and Mommy was nervous that I would be grumpy. I did pretty good. I was being mean to a few kids and hit and pushed them. Mommy took me for a time out for a few minutes until I was ready to apologize. I had so much fun though Daddy. We sang songs and danced and did arts and crafts. We even got to meet Gymbo and sing with him. Then we got our goody bags and cupcakes. It was delicious. Here are some pictures of the party.






I love you and miss you Daddy. So do Mommy and Lana.

Day 122

Dear Daddy,
Today we woke up early because Kayden was coming over while her Mommy went to the doctor. When she got here we played and played. I was a good boy for the most part. I was only mean one time when I wanted to ride on my rocking dog when she was. But Mommy scolded me and I apologized to Kayden. We ate lunch together and played for a bit longer until Kayden's Mommy came to get her. I was so upset when she left. I cried for about 10 minutes.

After they left it was nap time and Mommy and I took a nap. Mommy didn't get much sleep the night before since I had her up from 11:30pm-2am. After nap we played outside and played some inside too until dinner. I had a quesadilla for dinner.

Then I took a bath and went to bed. Mommy is waiting to take away my binkys until Saturday night. She was going to do it tonight but since I was so grumpy all day from not getting enough sleep she decided to wait.

I love you and miss you Daddy. So do Mommy and Lana.

XOXOXOXO

Love
Alexander
