Firstly, I want to congratulate Manny's sister & brother in law, Lisette and Nick, on their beautiful baby boy, Giovanni, who was born over a month ago now! It's hard to believe that it's already been a month! He is such a sweetheart and totally adorable! When I held him for the first time, it was so hard to believe my babies were that small and it made me really see why my mother-in-law always commented on how little their faces were...to me, I couldn't grasp how tiny they were because I had nothing to compare them with. But going from holding a 7 month old, to holding a newborn, I definitely understood then about their "caritas," little faces. I love my newest little nephew and I love going to visit him (even though Victor doesn't allow me to hold him for long whenever I get the chance). Congrats again Lisette and Nick, you guys are doing an awesome job and have really been great parents from the start! He is certainly a lucky little boy!
I also want to congratulate my sister Tiffany and brother-in-law Eric on their wedding! I wish you both many happy years together! So glad we got to spend time together and can't wait to see you again!
Since my last post, we celebrated Adrian's THIRD birthday! He is such a smart, happy, funny, (and sometimes bratty) little boy. He is looking more and more grown up each day, and it makes me a bit sad (but also very proud) that he'll be off to pre-school next year! I'm sure he'll do great, but it'll be hard sending him off "on his own" since we spend so much time together now. He went for a check-up on his birthday and he is 37" tall, 32lbs, and healthy as can be! He didn't really appreciate getting a shot, but he didn't cry too long :)
Victor is 8 months old, as of Monday, and is still growing like crazy :) He weighs around 20 lbs now and has been in size 9-12 month clothing for at least a month and half. He has also got FOUR more teeth in in 18 DAYS! He was not a happy camper when we went to Oregon (first plane ride!), and I will usually try natural remedies first before medicine, but even I know that there is a time when Tylenol is a necessity. Poor little guy was very serious when we were there and not his normal, smiley self, but he seems to be feeling much better (even with the 4th tooth popping in last Friday, 6 days ago).
