I have been dreaming of the day that I could put Valentina on the swings. I’m not sure why but I was really looking forward to it. A few month ago, Carlo and I took a walk to the park and luckily the swings were available! It was still cold so she was all bundled … More On the swing..
Before Valentina was born, Carlo and I often talked about what kind of baby she would be but more importantly, how girly girl she will be. We thought about the fact that Carlo’s sister is a tomboy and we really hoped that Valentina would take after mom… and thankfully she has. She love accessories. Shoes, … More Girly Girl.. sometimes
We started the New Year on a good note. We had moved Valentina out of our bed and into her crib. (post here) She was sleeping great and would wake up for a feeding or just to be reassured that we were still around. Things were going great until it got cold. Here’s the thing … More She’s BAAAACK!!
Now that Valentina is completely off the baby food, except for some fruits/snacks, I have sometime to reflect on her experience… or should I say MY experience with Italian baby food. I never actually noticed baby food until V was nearing 4 months. Since I was nursing her, I only worried about diapers, wipes and … More Baby food… Italian Style
I feel like this month has had the biggest changes yet, there are only a few minor things to report. This past month, V learned how to drink from a straw. We’ve been searching for replacement no-leak/spill proof sippy cups since she keeps playing with them.. and thus no longer spill proof. I found one … More 11 months… 1 more to go!
At 10 months, I do realize that V can chew and eat quite well. After eating pizza, bananas, oranges, bread, prosciutto and potatoes I feel better knowing she ate and didn’t choke. More importantly, she has decided she’s had enough of baby food… PERIOD. While she had (in the past) happily eaten her food, it … More On the path to self feeding
My sweet monkey is now 10 months (as of Feb. 22). I feel like these past few weeks have just flown by much faster because she seems to be getting bigger every day and changing in every way. She’s constantly on her feet. She refuses to sit and watch TV, she has to stand and … More 10 months… & 2 more until the big day!
I don’t understand how this time is flying by SO fast! I can’t believe that Valentina is 9 months old. Nothing much to report. No doctors visits this month so for now, we’ll just say that she’s happy, healthy and Oh SO MUCH FUN! ♥ She is now bottle fed when she wakes … More 9 months and changing…
This week we went for our 8 month check up. This one was special because Carlo was able to come too! She asked how she was doing after the fever last month. She got weight, measured, had her eyes checked and also her teeth got checked. This was a quick visit considering that there’s not … More 8 months and getting chubbier!
This year, Christmas was very special.. for obvious reasons. We celebrated Valentina’s First Christmas! Before I get into the actual day, let me recap what happened a few days earlier. We had planned to go to the MIL’s house for Christmas Eve dinner and Christmas Day lunch. On Thursday, Carlo came home to tell me … More Baby’s First Christmas
