Enjoying the Weather..

March 18, 2009. Wow, the weather has just been unbelievable lately. We have really been enjoying it. We took the kids on a nature walk over the weekend. Nicco just loves to look and explore, he really loves to be outside. I think we have seen almost all the good parks here in the last week, it has been a lot of fun.
It is almost time for our sleep center appointment. We have been logging Nicco's sleep now for a week. I can't wait to go and get some answers on his wild movement at night. His little legs are always moving. I was reading some stories on a forum the other day from parents who can't get their kids to sleep without help from them. You just wouldn't believe some of the things these people do! Their stories will really crack you up. Working with the sleep center has been the best decision we ever made. I am so glad we have such a great pediatrician who talked us into going. Nicco has been sleeping on his own since a month after he came home thanks to the clinic, and it only took 3 days to get there. I am hoping his leg movements, which he has had since birth, are just part of his growing process. I am really hoping this is not restless leg syndrome. We will pray for the best and hopefully have some answers soon.

Developing my style...

March 13, 2009. Nicco went shopping at old navy with me the other day. While we were strolling the boys department he spotted these sun glasses. I never thought in a million years he would wear sun glasses. I have often seen those and thought "whose kid will wear those?". I humored him and tried them on, well, I wasn't getting those sun glasses back. I bought them and he continued to wear them everywhere all day and night! He is such the ham and is already developing his own sense of style. Nicco suave, I love you.
We have been enjoying all the wonderful weather we have been blessed with lately. We love going to the park and feeding the ducks. We love to go down the slide at the playgrounds. We have joined several playgroups in our area and have been venturing out everyday and having a good time.
Nicco is starting to talk more and more. It is all about when and if he wants to talk to you. He still responds to Spanish better than English though, especially with body parts. Today Nicco repeated his ABC's all the way through to Z and even knew when the letter Y was coming next. I was so proud of him. Getting him to talk has been a challenge even though we know he can, it must be on his terms, lol.
He has been in the new gymnastics class for 3 weeks now and can almost do the Chinese splits! He loves this class. Last week they taught him to pose when he completes his moves with arms raised in the air. It is so cute as he lands and poses and states "ta da". So proud of himself, as he should be.
