Since the last time I had written, Vinny seemed to go into a developmental hyper-growth. This has been an amazing time to observe monumental and amazing changes. In the past 3 months, he's gone from being non-verbal (ok, not really non-verbal) to speaking in 3 and sometimes 4 word sentences! We were actually so concerned we met with the specialist at the doctor's office. How sweet she was to not laugh at us first time parents. I don't remember his exact stats, but his 93 percentile head size sticks out. His height and weight were somewhere in the middle, but you'd never know when you pick him up...he feels like a ton of bricks! Good thing he'd prefer to run that be carried!
Gone is my name Mama. He began calling me Ma for a short bit, and then all of the sudden, it became Mommy. And every word or phrase is punctuated with "Mommy" or "Daddy." He parrots everything we say, and one of my favorites might be let's see whenever we are making a choice. Or in between singing a few favorite songs like Itsy Bitsy Spider, Twinkle Twinkle, or Pattycake, he throws out a long and drawn out "how 'bout" much like I would say while killin' time in the bath tub. Speaking of names, he finally figured out Gramma and Babci's names, so we can add them to the list. He can also squeak out Uncle Tom for both Ant's brother and my Godfather. He's almost got Dziadiu, and who can blame him for taking a little bit longer on that one! But just like walking, he went from zero to 100 overnight! It's so fun to carry on a conversation with this little guy these days!
Move over Mickey Mouse, make room for Lightnin' McQueen and Woody! But fret not Mickey, you'll always be numero uno. He still requests episode after episode of "Gickey" but it's nice to wind down at the end of the day with a movie. We're hoping he gets as excited as we are about going to see Cars 2 in the movie theatre this summer.
Well, I sure hope I got everything up to date. I know how much our family loves to keep tabs on Vinny, but really I hope one day to print out this blog like a journal. There are so many things I want to remember forever and everyone says "write it down." It's true, if you don't do it right away, the moments slip right by you. The next time I write, we'll be in California, starting yet another adventure to document!
