My life

Filling in the Gap...

10:00 AM

Wow, the rollercoaster that my life has become sadly leaves little time for blogging, but I'm done teaching for this school year, so perhaps I'll return in earnest soon. In the meantime, here's the past six months on fast-forward....

What a year was 2007! That's Thomas in blue at 24 days.

The first second really big day of Thomas' life: his Baptism (Feast of the Epiphany).
Pictured with godparents Uncle Rich and Cousin Alba(from Italy!)

Christmas Shopping with Mamma!

What a difference 2 months makes!

More photos coming soon!

In the meantime, I will catch you all up on his statistics:

Age: 8 months, 1 week

Weight: 20 pounds

Height: 28.75 inches

Head: 18.75 inches -> big brains!

Oral fixation: Thomas has four teeth and it seems that some more will be coming soon, as he has been suffering much of late.

Petite Cuisine: He has begun his foray into eating solids. We began with terrine de foie gras, which continues to be his favorite, and his parents' too. He has also enjoyed thus far: pear, avocado, peach, goat cheese, oatmeal, kasha, beans, green beans, lentils, pork, chicken, duck, apple, carrot, rice, sweet potato, mango, peas, squash, broccoli, necatarine and many spices. This list may seem peculiar to some, but you must understand that I make all his food.

Motor Skills: Thomas has mastered the pincer grasp and changing objects from one hand to the other without much thought.

He also has been scooting backwards for the past month, but on Friday he surprised mamma and papa` by crawling forward; his stomach never touches the ground. He has become quicker and quicker, so I have to keep a watchful eye on him as we haven't completed babyproofing. He also is pulling himself to a standing position by using whatever is around him for support. Will he be walking by 9 months like I did?!
