Two

Marco has turned 2!! Mommy decided to have a photo shoot with the gorgeous boy, and the pictures turned out beautiful…

Special thanks to Pooh bear for participating!

Christmas Tree farm

This year, Marco was able to fully enjoy the Christmas Tree farm (last year he was a wee thing) – and boy howdy! He loved it! We went with our neighbors, and the Gomers. It was great with all the happy kids running around in the outdoors. Here’s a few fun snaps from the adventure:

new pics!

Marco loves this book!

😛

Marco enjoys watching ‘The Daily Show’ and ‘The Colbert Report’ with Mom and Dad 🙂

WALKING PROOF!

Finally, video proof of our beautiful boy’s skills! 😀 He walks like he’s had too many margaritas, but it looks cuter on him than it does on me. LOL

Eating habits

Marco loves food. He will eat anything put in front of him, which makes his parents very happy! We try to keep Marco on a healthy, organic diet whenever possible (which it isn’t always – sometimes a peach is just a peach).

It appears my plate is empty, Mom.

BREAKFAST FOODS (always accompanied with 8 oz of organic, unsweetened soy milk)

organic mini waffles (he loves these for breakfast)
sliced bananas, plain whole wheat toast
scrambled eggs (organic hormone-free cage-free brown eggs)

LUNCH FOODS (accompanied by 8 oz water or 100% carrot juice) and DINNER FOODS (accompanied by 8 oz organic, unsweetened soy milk)

grilled cheese on whole wheat
organic, unsweetened peanut butter and raw honey on whole wheat

PB & Honey!

Inching closer

Marco rediscovered his giraffe, Sophie, and at the same time, decided to walk with only one hand pushing his toy! He’s now comfortable only holding one of our hands, instead of both. SOOOO close to walking by himself!!!!

A bit late, but worth the wait!

Pictures from the past month 🙂

First tooth

Marco’s first tooth finally pushed its way through!

This picture was taken 2 weeks ago. As of now, he has three additional teeth coming out! You can see the white nubs ready to poke through his gums. 🙂

8 MONTHS!!

Measurements

Height: 28 3/4″ (85th Percentile)
Weight: 18 lbs 2 oz (25th Percentile)

No teeth (4 months of teething and drooling, but nothing to show for it!), and no crawling. He has absolutely no interest in crawling. He loves to pull himself up to standing, but if he’s on his tummy he’ll just roll around until he can get himself into a sitting position. He gabbles to himself and practices his screeching abilities; he’s becoming quite loud, LOL. He loves to play with finger paints, and chews socks. WEIRD.

Marco’s starting to wave at people. He smiles and laughs all the time, and gives his Mama and Papa hugs and kisses; he wraps his little arms around our necks and opens his mouth wide for drooly kisses.

He’s eating EVERYTHING! Thank goodness he’s not a picky eater. His palate has approved of all of the following (most of it homemade, using the Beaba – we don’t buy jar food):

Chicken mixed with peas, avocado, or tomatoes
Turkey
Sweet potatoes
Butternut squash
Bananas with strawberries or blueberries
Pears
Carrots
Unsweetened applesauce (organic from Whole Foods) that I mix with blueberries, strawberries, or bananas
YoBaby Peach or Blueberry yogurt
Whole grain oatmeal
Cooked macaroni
Peas
Happy Baby yogurtmelts
Cheerios
Organic veggie puffs
Rice rusks

Finally, here are the pictures you’ve been waiting for 😉

Can I check my email on this?

OMG ROUX!!

Hugs!
