feet grabbing

Diego has been grabbing his little feet. It is super cute to watch him explore. He can just stare at something for so long, trying to work it out. He likes to stare at the pages of his little cloth book.

don't know what happened

I don't know what happened with that last post. It looked good yesterday and now it is all weird. Just copy and paste the web address for the photobucket album. My kodak got updates that ruined the program. Now it won't work right and when I try to upload pics, it gives me a stupid error message that doesn't make any sense to me. I have some really cute pics to upload so this is my solution... photobucket.

videos of Diego on YouTube

I am now uploading videos of little Diego on YouTube. To make it easier on some of you less web-saavy folks, I put a customized video player at the bottom of this page so you don't have to go to the to see the videos. They will play right here on this page if you click play. Check them out, we got some cute ones.

I am still trying to get him on video as he rolls over but I haven't gotten it yet. So far he rolls over too quick - almost as soon as I put him down before I get the camera on him... or not at all. I will have to find my tripod soon.

He's napping in his swing now. Looking really cute in his "I love Daddy" jumper.

roll over

Diego rolled over during tummy time on Thursday. I went out to the living room in the morning so Jay could sleep in a little on his day off. I usually do tummy time first thing in the morning because Diego is in a good mood when he first wakes up. Also because it wears him out so he'll go down for a nap so I can cook some breakfast. Well, as soon as I put him down, he rolled over pretty much immediately. None of that grunting and struggling he usually does. It was as if it was no big deal. He was happy as a clam. Later on in the day when I tried it again, he couldn't figure out how to go over. And he hasn't done it since. He tries so hard and gets so frustrated that it takes me awhile to soothe him once I pick him up. He sticks his little booty in the air and rubs his little face on the blanket and tries so hard to go over.

sisters - cousins

Just look at these gorgeous little girls. Diego's little cousins, Abigail and Emily. Our littles nieces. I can't wait to meet them.

in the market for infant toys

diego is ready for some toys i think. i think he would like some kind of activity mat. i have been letting him work out his abs by laying him down on the floor on his back. i dangle a toy over his head to stimulate him a little. he likes to lift his legs a lot and his muscles are getting stronger and stronger. it would be nice to find a good mat that could dangle toys over him and keep him entertained so i could cook dinner or do the dishes instead of hold a toy over his face. anyone have a good one that worked for their baby? there are too many to choose from, my mnd boggles and some are really expensive for what they are. this one looks good but i don't really know.

we got him this chair from and he is just starting to tug on the toys. seeing him do that just about blew my mind. when we first got it he wasn't interested at all. now he can sit entertained for at least 15 to 30 minutes and that really makes for a happy momma. it is hard to keep a baby entertained all day long.

heads up

Diego has been holding his head up very steadily for probably over a week now. He likes to be pulled up into a sit gently by his arms. If you count it out he anticipates it and helps pull himself up. He's such a strong boy. He is still enjoying standing and he even tries to bounce himself up and down. He's not that good at it yet.

Tummy time is still a struggle. He grunts and sort of whimpers but when I pick him up, he cries. It is as if he wasn't done yet. If I wait too long, he'll cry. If I pick him up too soon, he'll cry. The doc said he is almost ready to roll over so I am waiting for that magic moment.

I have been showing him this little cloth baby book. He loves it. He'll stare at it for a really long time.
