Don't get me wrong, Alex is not a holy terror, and for the most part he is a very good boy. But he has his moments, and it just seems that since he's been sick he's been extremly irritable and bad.
When he was younger, he never really put stuff in his mouth either and he didn't really ever bother with the electrical outlets, but we still baby-proofed the house because I'd rather be safe than sorry. I used the pack 'n play alot when I needed to get stuff done.
Alex is very strong-willed and has always been an inquisitive little boy, that's just part of his personality and he will probably always be like that.
Jamie was the same way when he was a little boy and even when he started school, the teachers would even comment on his behaviour. But, he was very studious and did very well academically. Alex will probably be just like his dad
