Pulling up

Vincent has now started to pull up on all things.  He is so fast and hard for mom to catch up.  We put our house on the market and not really expecting it to sell to quick...SOLD in 17 days.  Vincent has been a great helper with packing and grabbing all the paper.  It definitely makes the days go by very quickly!


9 month mark

We have big news this month...we've started crawling!!! Soon after he went from tummy to sitting up, he crawled.  He is fast too. I will run in the kitchen to wash out his bottle and then next thing I know he is at my feet. It makes me really nervous because we have mostly tile floor but he is doing very well so far.  I was really excited that he has reached another milestone but they are all coming so fast. SLOW it down, Vincent.

We also went to see Dr. A for his 9 month well check and he were perfect!  He is weighing in at 21 lbs. , 28 inches long. He is 50% in all growth so right down the middle. He had to get the hepatits B shot but didn't even hardly make a peep.  He is such a good boy and is really setting me up for the next one. 


Another milestone to mark...

Today Vincent and I were having such a great day. It was time for his second nap of the day and so I put him in his crib awake and happy around 1:00.  He usually falls asleep within 15 minutes but as I was cleaning the kitchen I heard him talking and playing.  This is what I found when I looked at the video monitor.
HE was sitting up in his crib!!

Vincent has learned how to sit up from laying down and now when he gets in his crib that is all he wants to do.
He then started to pull up on the rail and so it resulted to lowering the crib
Crib is lowered and now I can relax and not stare at the monitor

I did some research on what to do in this situation because each time I would go lie him down he would just sit back up. I found to just leave him in there and let him play and he would figure out how to lie down again and go to sleep.  After playing for 30 minutes of up and down, up and down he fell asleep! I am afraid that crawling is now soon to follow.


Stinky Pants

Vincent is now 9 months and he really enjoys eating solids.  The only milk he likes is in the morning and then his night bottle. I try to give him bottles in the afternoon and he only drinks around 2 of the 5 ounces.  Doesn't he realize that mommy's milk is like gold? Anyway, he LOVES to eat food so this means he has stinky poops!!!  I mean you walk in his room and you know he has a dirty diaper.  So the other night he was getting ready to go to bed and he had a large poop and you could see it through his pj's in the diaper. Ran and I thought it was so funny so hear are some pictures of his cutie batootie.


Another Milestone

Vincent has started clapping and it is the sweetest, cutest thing. He gets really excited and when I do it with him he just grins from ear to ear. He is almost 9 months, which I cannot believe and growing each day. I will be interested to see his weigh in at the doctor next week. I am thinking he is about 21 lbs. which gets pretty heavy carrying around all day. He is still not crawling, which is just fine with mommy. Here are some pictures of my little prince clapping.


Avocado Face

Tonight Vincent tried avocado out of the mesh feeder and it was quite a mess! He love it though, I think it felt good on his teeth.  Get this, he has 4 top teeth popping through and 3 bottom!!! I also put ice in the feeder and definitely bought daddy and I some time while we ate our fish tacos.
I think I would say he enjoyed it! Love this guy!!!


Valentine's Day

We had a great first Valentine's day together. I gave daddy a picnic blanket but it was a little chilly outside so we had a living room picnic.  Vincent also got some Valentine gifts, he loves books so I got him a LOVE soft book and it tells him all the ways mommy loves him.  He also got a lot of mommy kisses too. We sent out valentines with the picture below.

And for the big FINALE, this is what Daddy brought Mommy back from Aspen for Vday...

Umm...most of you know that I LOVE shoes of most kind but seriously honey what am I going to do with these moon boots? I am a horrible skier so don't feel like I can trot these around in the ski towns or in OKLAHOMA! I will wear them though, as silly as I will look, so hopefully next year there will be another record breaking snowstorm, but for now they are packed away in storage.  Thanks honey for thinking of me while you were away but I believe you had a few cocktails before you went shopping!
