Just a little update on our family.
Zach turned 10 months and is now crawling. HURRAY! He is also standing on his own, and wanting to walk with assistance everywhere. (It's tough being tall sometimes - my back is killing me.)
He is eating like a champ - loves baby food of all sorts, yogurt, pasta, blueberries, DILL PICKLES and SAUERKRAUT (?!?!). I am thinking he definitely is showing his Polish genes. He is taking a bottle real well now (finally) and holds it by himself for the most part.
He is saying dada, and mama, and baba, and this, but I think he is only getting the Mama part for now.
Don't ask about the sleeping - it aint been pretty.
As for Ms. Sophie - she is 3 and officially potty trained. We aren't at 100% yet - but we are getting there. Unfortunately, Sophie was running a 104.5 degree temperature on her actual birthday so we had to cancel her official kid party - but alas we were able to share her Uncle Robby's party and her Babcia Morphet was able to attend all the way up from N. Carolina. As for what she is up to: She knows her letters pretty well, can spell STOP and SOPHIA 50% of the time, and is a total musician - great pitch and interest. She's been counting for awhile and recognizes numbers 1-11. She knows her numbers in Spanish too. (Thank you Dora) She loves Elmo, Dora, Nemo, Veggie Tales (especially Larry Boy). We are getting into some Leap Frog products right now and she really enjoys them.
So if you are wondering why this email is so late - well, Zach and Sophie have both been ill recently (3 solid weeks of high temps and nausea). And we are about to put our home on the market (for sale by owner - I know, I know - are we nuts - but check out the website http://infotube.net/180909) and the good news - we are moving in September! We purchased a house out in Camillus and should be closing in early September. YEAH! Housewarming party/ Zach's first birthday party is expected to be at the new residence October 7 - so mark it on your calendars.
Zach has been so sick that I have few pictures to share. I'll attach a few and lets hope I can get him feeling better and back to his old smiley self.
