On to tablefoods!

Well, we have started trying some random table foods with Carmine. And he seems to be so much more into it than he has been with baby food. He has had brocolli, ham, potatoes, pear, peach, watermelon, canteloupe. Probably more things I can't think of. We are still trying to keep it pretty simple and there are certain things that are off limits to him. And he will still be getting some baby food-the ones he really likes-avacado, sweet potatoes, pear and peaches. He will also be finishing off the others I already had frozen. I am loving this whole new relaxed approach. I found this article and it helped me relax a little because it just makes sense. And so far it has been true. Plus, now I am much more relaxed about the fact that he isn't actually "eating" much with this method. It is more about learning right now. He is getting all the nutrients he needs from me, which is how it should be right now. How much one can change between children!! I am definitely not more relaxed about which foods he is eating, but in other areas I am. At this point Rece had not even had ANY table food! Here he is enjoying his brocolli!

8 Months!

We got his 8 month pictures taken! They aren't my favorite, but the kid doesn't take bad pictures!

Labor Day

This was Rece at our local parade. I of course forgot my camera until the day of the parade. So nothing too exciting. Just the boys watching the parade.

Rece starts speech theray on September 12 and occupational therapy on Octber 3! Each is 1/2 an hour long and he will going once a week. I will keep updating! We are very excited about getting this started. And I still need to call our school district about preschool and to get him evaluated for that.

More Pics

Carmine...There is about a 2 month age difference, but here is an example where I really don't think they look alike.
This is his newest thing he loves to do. He even gets brave and lets go with one hand, but after a while he fell backwards and hit his head on the wall...bad mommy, next time pull it out into the middle of the room!
Our little photographer, Rece got ahold of the camera and we had about 7 pictures like this :)
First Ohio State Game!! GO BUCKS!!!!!!
This is what daddy lives for!

Rece reading to Carmine...he loves reading to anyone.

Mr. cool dude

Messy Boy

Carmine has signed his first sign, milk! He is also starting to wave and clap! He has waved a couple times, the first time at himself in a mirror and the second time to Rece in the morning. The clapping is not quite together yet, but you can tell he is trying. He is getting better with solids. But he still has to be quite hungry to actually eat much of it. But right now his favorites seem to be avacado, pear and peaches. We have tried peas and will be trying potatoes today! He just still really enjoys the boob! ;) Rece cracks me up everyday! He is so funny and knows it. Today I caught him making two stuffed animals kiss! And he was on the ground crawling around going under Carmine's crib like the dogs do, so I think he is really starting to use his imagination and make believe play a little. A long way to go still but this is the first sign of it I guess! He also reads all day, out loud to whoever will listen or just to himself in his room, like he is doing right now.
