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! 


Max and Maris turn 2!

This weekend the Everett twins (Max and Maris) turned 2! This was Vincnet's first birthday party to attend and he loved watching all the big kids! It was at Golds Gymnastics which was a great place for all the kids to run and play.  There was a 3 seat swing and I thought well let's see how you like the swing Vincent, AND he LOVED it!!!

Happy baby!
He was smiling as you can see above and when I would take him out he would turn his head around and just look at the swing. Guess we will be purchasing a swing for the porch this spring/summer! 

Swinging with the big kids! The cutie next to him is Everett Strickland, love him!
I LOVE this age, he is so much fun but I am having baby fever again since 3 of my best friends are pregnant!!!  We are so excited that Vincent is going to have new "Boom Boom" besties for life! Congratulations new Mommas, I couldn't be more excited!


Designer jeans

Today, I finally put Vincent in his designer jeans.  He received them from his Bebe when he was still in the womb and I had forgotten about them.  I put them on him today and he has only a few more weeks in them.  I knew how he felt when I could barely get them buttoned! He is sure stylin' though!

My handsome boys! I LOVE them!!!


Valentine's dessert


We have been getting alot of snow lately so I have been baking, eating, and eating.  Tonight we took dinner to our dear friends, the Roueches that just had baby Sam and I made a cherry cobbler for dessert.  Since it is the month of February, I decorated it with hearts.  This is a super easy recipe and great with a scoop of vanilla icecream!

I'm BACK...

Hello all,
I know it has been a while, only like 8 months!!! This is for you my friend Jamie Judd. She inspired me today to start blogging again so I am going to try to make it a goal atleast once a week. When Vincent is napping I find myself busy doing laundry, making his food, working out, watching TV, researching on the computer, unloading dishwasher, pumping, I could go on and on so now you know why I have been MIA for a few months. I know there are alot of busier moms out there that blog, so it is my goal.
Vincent Edwin is soon to be 8 months old! I don't know where the time goes but I am loving every minute of it. He is now eating all veggies and fruit puree and today we had some chicken and apples which he loved. He really isn't a pi
cky eater, loves it all. One of his favorites lately has been avocado and green peas...yummy! I have been making all his food in the Williams Sonoma beaba babycook which I love. Sometimes mommy helps finish off his foods and I know if it was that stuff in the jar, I wouldn't be licking his spoon.

Vincent eating his apples and chicken today.

Vincent also has 6 teeth coming in. He got his two bottom teeth first, and the top front teeth starting peeking through last week. This week a couple more are popping through. As most of you know his momma has some big teeth so looks like he will be taking after me. Poor guy will have to have some dental work but it will be all worth it in the long run. He will be eating soft finger foods soon once his chompers come in.

He did not enjoy Momma taking this picture!!!
