Sorry Internet Friends!

It has been quite a while! Spencer is growing in leaps and bounds, and I can't believe that he is almost a year old! This also means that we will be heading to Disney World soon! He isn't crawling, yet, and honestly we don't think he will ever be crawling. Spencer has a new walker that he is loving, and as of 2 days ago, he is weighing in at 22lbs and just about 30 inches. Spencer had his first trip to the beach (also his 9 month photo shoot), his first plane ride, his first trip to Philly for his GG's surprise birthday party, and we know that he is saying 'Dada', but we swear there is a 'Mom' and a 'I did it' in there now. Here are some pictures; I promise to post more often (at least once a week)! All photos courtesy of our wonderful friends at http://www.yaporiginals.com/!

Happy Birthday America!

Today was supposed to be Spencer's 1st 4th of July; instead, it was Spencer's 1st ear infection...actually a double ear infection. My poor baby. He was miserable for the past few days; we thought it was just teething.


This was supposed to be his outfit for today:

Instead, this was the 4th outfit of the day (G-d bless Dreft Stain remover!):
This was actually the only time he was happy today.
Instead of seeing fireworks for the first time tonight, he'll have to wait until we take him to Disney for the first time. My poor little guy....here's hoping tomorrow is a better day!

Swimming Lessons!

The Spence-man has turned into quite a swimmer! He's supposed to have 2 lessons a week, but because of the rain we've only had a handful. However, he's loving the water and I've learned not to freak out when the coach puts him under the water! On another note, I can't believe my baby is 7 months old! It seems like just yesterday he was born, and someone mentioned to me the other day that we need to book a place now for his 1st birthday in November. Seriously? It's only June?!?! Enjoy the pics and videos below!

Bottle Time!

I give my baby so much credit! He is trying so hard to hold his bottle on his own! So I bought a bottle that has handles on it, so far he can hold it to his mouth...it's the lifting part that is giving him issues. He can also do a sippy cup now too...pics to follow!

6 month update!

I can't believe my baby is 6 months old already! Everyday Spencer is doing something new! He is eating more fruits & vegetables; trying to sit up on his own; has discovered his voice (babbling, screaming, screeching, etc)! At his 6 month check-up, he weighed in at 17lbs 12.5 oz (50th %tile), and 28 inches (90th %tile). However, a week later when we took him back for a cold, he was weighing in at 18lbs 3oz. The pedi said that it's expected for a baby to gain about a 1oz a day for the first year.

I love my naps!

Who doesn't love a picture of a baby (and daddy) napping?

It's hard working being a baby!

We're eating solids!

At the 4 month check-up, we were told to begin solids (cereal). Little did the pediatrician know, we started them a few days earlier. The cereal tasted like, what I would imagine, wallpaper paste to taste like; therefore, we jumped the gun a little sooner to add in fruit. We already knew that Spencer was OK with prune juice and apple juice, so we stared with adding in prunes or applesauce. It was a tough start, but we eventually caught onto it! Also, I learned to love exersaucer!

Happy Passover/Easter

So, I was thinking....In all honestly, what does the Easter 'Bunny' really have to do with Easter? Exactly! So, why can't he also be the Passover Bunny? Spencer and I had few rare minutes to spare, so I took him to meet the Passover Bunny. You'll notice his bib reads 'My first Passover'.
While his grandfather was recuperating nicely from a quadruple bypass, Spencer celebrated his first Passover. Although he wasn't able to eat the Matzah, he enjoyed playing with it! Next year, he is all about finding the Afikoman (and there better be a big prize)!

Unfortunately, we also had to say goodbye to our dear friend, Robin Leibovitz. Our thoughts are with the Leibovitz and Shapiro family; we know your pain, and how much it just simply sucks! We'll be sure to tell your beautiful grandsons, Noah & Logan, about all the good times!

XOXOXO to all!
