Lately

Marco’s grown so much in the past month, and I want to keep as faithful a record as I can of his development – so here’s the list of words and phrases he’s said in the past few weeks:

Uh-oh
Bye-bye
No
Yeah
More
Mama
Dada
Woo (Roux)
Abeler (Stabler)
Co (Chloe)
Tank oo (Thank you)
Elcome (You’re welcome)
Otter (Water)
Ape (Grape)
Nigh-nigh (Night night)
Ga-ga (Grandpa – lol Lady Gaga)

He gives lots of kisses and hugs, and likes when we give his stuffies kisses. Today, he even grabbed his monkey and his Pooh bear and had them kiss. SO ADORABLE.

Marco’s eating habits are still good; the only change is he won’t try meat. I’ve given him chicken (he’ll sometimes eat if I put in a quesadilla), turkey (no), fish (no). We’re thinking it might be because he’s never seen me eat it – I don’t know if that’s something he’s picked up on, and thinks that it’s bad. If we put meat or fish on his plate, he eats everything around the meat. My vegetarian boy, I guess! His favorite foods right now are:

Grapes
Bananas
Grilled cheese – we’ve started using a new recipe, from Deceptively Delicious; the grilled cheese with Butternut Squash puree is so good! Marco is enjoying the change!
Whole wheat crust mini pizzas
Soy nuggets
Pears
Olives
Coco Pop popcakes from Whole Foods – super tasty organic whole wheat, corn and rice cakes
Edamame
Avocado
Oranges
Tomatoes! He’s been so happy with our tomato plants in the garden; he loves to pick tomatoes and snack when we play outside.
Pasta

During our trip to Disneyland, we stopped off at a CPK for dinner – he ate the entire plate of pasta shown above! LOL

He’s wearing a size 18 months in regular clothes, but his pajamas are all 2T or 24 months; his shoe size is 6.

Our little guy has all of his teeth now, with the exception of his 2nd molars. Evidently those will show up by the time he’s 3. I’m pretty impressed with his chompers!

I’ll be posting a few videos soon, so stay tuned.
