top left tooth

His fourth tooth came in this week. I can't remember which day. I am kicking myself for not writing it down. But it was early this week. Like maybe Tuesday. He is crawling perfectly now and is unstoppable. He is so fast that you can't take your eyes off him. He is even standing on his feet and using whatever he can to push across the floor so he can walk. I guess he needs a push toy now.

We got his high chair last night. It is going to work out pretty well, I think.

Standing up

Diego pulled himself up to a stand today. He has been working on it pretty hard for the past few days. He would get himself to a point that he couldn't get out of and start wailing for help. Today, I was lying on the floor with him and Lucy was behind us on the couch. Diego was babbling at Lucy and he pull himself up to stand using my shirt to hold onto. He stood for a long time steadying himself by holding onto my shirt. His motivation was to get closer to Lucy. That really helped motivate him to crawl too. I am sure that it will provide motivation to walk! So he can chase the dogs! They are in for it.

Top Right Tooth

Also, I saw on the Rachael Ray show, Rockabye Baby! Lullabye renditions of....

They have everybody! I want like every single cd they have. They only carry Coldplay, Tool and Smashing Pumpkins at the Library. Dang it! I really want The Pixies but it isn't out yet. Coming soon! So cool... They even have Bjork and Led Zeppelin.

Diego is practically crawling now. He does sort of a slither hop wriggle crawl. Point is that he can get wherever he wants to go now and wherever I don't want him to go! He is even starting to pull himself up to a standing position. He is trying to do that, I should say. He isn't quite there yet.

6 month checkup

Diego weighs 15.7lbs (20%) and is 27 1/4 inches (75%). The doctor said he was advanced because he can sit up on his own. She said he is doing well and we will be going back in three months.

He seems to like his doc. We like her. The only problem is that the office always seems over booked and we end up waiting for an hour.Our next appointment is in May and I made sure we got the first one of the day so we won't be stuck waiting forever.

Oh and I forgot to mention that we went out to lunch after his appointment and he sat in a high chair at the end of the table. He was so interested in everything. He did so well. The waitress brought him a sliced banana for us to put in his mesh feeder and he loved it. I even mashed up a little and fed him some. I got to eat my Boca burger and we had a great time!

Diego's 2nd tooth

I noticed Diego's second tooth broke through on Saturday. 2/2/08. He is doing well with eating solids. It has changed his patterns a bit. For example, yesterday, he didn't have a poop all day. That worries me a bit, but I know they say it is normal. He went first thing this morning so I know he's okay.

The thing I don't understand is, if they know rice cereal is so binding, why do they recommend that you start with that instead of something like oatmeal? Diego is having his checkup on Wednesday so I will get to bombard the doc with lots of Questions.

He has a lot of bumps on his thighs and his sides. They aren't red or anything but I can feel them. They feel scratchy or coarse. I have been putting lotion on him to try to help it go away and they feel better but not gone.

Jay took him to Mark and Leslie's yesterday to watch the Superbowl, while I cooked for Kim and Smokey. I guess he was a bit of a fussy boy so he ended up coming back after a couple of hours. I think Diego really likes to be at home. He fusses whenever we go over there.

Sitting up

Diego figured out how to get himself into a seated position. He's been trying so hard to do it and I guess last night, he did it while I was in the other room. Jay was with him and didn't see him do it. But he saw that he wasn't sitting and then he was all of a sudden. Jay suspected that he used the activity mat's arches to help himself get there because of the way he was hugging them.

Well, today I saw him do it. And now he does it over and over again. So cool!
