Boys Update

Getting cuter and more boyish (than babyish) by the minute.  His vocabulary has exploded and includes lots of words he really has no use for at the moment, like hang glider, staccato and harp.  These are all thanks to Baby Einstein, thankyouverymuch.  Plus, I swear he just said "I want rock and roll." 

The boy has no fear of water.  I had him in my sister's pool on Monday.  It's 4.5' deep and he didn't have a floaty toy so I was holding him.  He didn't want to be held.  He wanted to splash around by himself.  He was treading water really nicely and didn't freak out when his face went under for a second (I was holding him).  

He's wearing a size 4T.  He's two.  

His favorite things to do are to shove books in people's faces in an effort to get them to read to him.  (We always do, but after the sixth or seventh book it can get a little tiring.)  He also loves to count to twenty and say goodbye to different things.  

He's still deeply in love with trains. 

Funny Andy story:  Steve finally got around to taking apart the subwoofer for the home theater set-up.  It has a deep hole in the front of it and Andy likes to shove things in there.  We had no idea how much he liked to shove stuff in there.  We found at least 15 tinkertoy pieces, several small plastic animals, 5 Hot Wheels Cars, some assorted pieces from his Weebles treehouse, two binkies, a pencil and most impressively, his battery-operated Spongebob Crest Spinbrush toothbrush.

Joey has a severe diaper rash and it's taking forever to clear it up.  I brought him to the pedi on Friday and she gave me a prescription for Nystatin.  She said that the rash is a yeast infection and I have to let him be naked for a little while each day.  Easier said than done.  I just had him laying on my bed, naked, and he peed on me.  The rash seems to be getting better in the areas where his diaper doesn't rub the cream off.  

Joey's got great head control and can sit up with assistance nicely.  

He is however, quite a pita, and wants to be held practically all the time.  He is not yet sleeping all the way through the night.  He gets up around 2:30-3:00 and then again around 5:30.  

The pedi also has me giving him baby food and cutting down on the formula because my little guy is quite the chunker.  So far he's had pears, applesauce, bananas, peaches and sweet potatoes.  He's liked everything except the bananas.  I can't blame him, I hate bananas myself. 

Joey is wearing 3-6 month clothing, weighs 17.5 pounds and is 23 inches long.

Andy is saying "staccato"?? I don't even know if I've said that word more than a handful of times! :) Go Andypants! :)

Love it about the Spinbrush! LOL! Didn't notice it was missing??? :)

You should get some of those PeePee TeePees for Joey and his nekkid time! :)

So giving him baby food as opposed to formula is LESS chunk inducing? I would have thought the opposite!

Gotta love Baby Einstein and Little Einstein.

I knew the spinbrush was missing from the bathroom, but he takes stuff and runs with it all the time. I had no idea it was shoved into the subwoofer!

Formula runs 20-25 calories per ounce and he takes anywhere from 4 to 8 ounces per feeding. A jar of baby food is 50 calories or so, depending on whether it's a fruit or a vegetable and he gets 1 for lunch and 2 for dinner.
