Gio is 10 1/2 months!

Yes indeed, Giovanni is 6 weeks away from turning 1! Oh my, how the last month has flown by. It hasn't been a typical month, with the holidays and our trip to Florida, and thankfully, Giovanni just goes with the flow. He's not one that has melt downs if he misses a nap or two, which has been a blessing this month.

It's funny, when I found out I was pregnant with another boy, I thought they were going to be so much alike. And while they have several common traits, they are so different. Dominic is loud and very active and Giovanni is quiet and just goes with the flow. Dominic at this age was not only walking, but running. (He walked at 8 months)  Dom was a "toddler" before he his age, and Giovanni is still very much baby. So it's been a different experience this time around, and I'm soaking up every last bit of this baby stage! It's so fun to see them each grow into their little personalities. And despite their differences they are the best buddies.

I don't have a clue on how much he weighs or how tall he is, but he is definitely getting longer!  He's still in 6/9 month clothes and will be for a while yet. He has the smallest waist, which proves to be difficult getting pants to stay on. They are the right length but they fall right off all the time.

-Blows kisses!

Oh boy, does our little man like to eat! And not that baby food stuff either. Ewww. He wants what we're having and he wants seconds! Maybe a chef in his future? ;) We're still nursing around 5 times a day. I haven't thought about weaning yet. Our goal is one year, I guess we will decided then. He also had juice for the first time when we were on vacation, and enjoyed it.

Now for my favorite thing, pictures..
