The Boys' Update!

Height: 35in

Weight: 21 lbs 3 oz
Height: 30ins

The boys are growing and getting so big!  Each are growing into their own little personalities. Dominic our fast paced little boy and Giovanni our go with the flow climber.

Dominic at 2 1/2 Years Old

Dominic's a little sponge, soaking in all this information! He still knows his letters, animals, numbers, colors, the difference between genders, and he can count. He's not a big fan on coloring, but he loves to paint. He's fascinated with emotions and loves to study people to figure theirs out. He's big into super heroes, especially Batman, but he still loves Toy Story and Curious George. His imagination is amazing, and the "conversations" with his action figures have are hilarious!

It's so cool to see how much he's changed since the last update. We can have full conversations with him, and he has become a great negotiator. Ha. He's also like his daddy and is totally interested in how things work. He's healthy and in the 25% for weight and height. He wears size 24/2T and size 6/7 shoe. The biggest milestones he's hit are potty training and sleeping in a toddler bed! I did posts earlier on these.  
Giovanni at 15 Months Old

Giovanni's vocabulary is growing leaps and bounds just in the last week! He says; "mama, dada, me, paw-paw, maw-maw, Jamie, Trixie, now, let's go, bye-bye, quack, belly, nose, NO, baby, more, that, this, bro, hand me that, let go please, Thank You." I'm sure there's more, but that's all I can remember right now. It's like his jabbering just click one day and turned into words. It's been so much fun to watch and discover his speech growing.

He's also been walking everywhere now, for about a month. And no sooner did he learn to walk, did he start to climb on EVERYTHING! This boy is half monkey! We can turn our heads for two seconds, and he's on top of something!

Right now we are working on learning his body parts and animal sounds. He can point out nose, belly, ears, eyes(well my eyes). He knows some animals, but mainly ducks and dogs! Every animal either quacks or barks to him. Hehe. He's just at a very cute and fun age. He loves books, and he loves to color and finger paint! He's a little artist for sure.  

We are still breastfeeding! However, I think our breastfeeding days are dwindling. Some days he'll breastfeed 3 times a day, and sometimes once. Just depends on the days activities. Usually, morning and night. I am torn. I'm so ready to be done, but at the same time, it's like saying goodbye to his baby days. So, I'm just leaving it up to him. If he wants to nurse he can, if not, that's fine too. He's a healthy growing boy. He wears 12 months and size 4 shoe.
