Food Please

Abuelita getting Zach ready for his first foods. He was so happy to be sitting up in this high chair. We don't have one like this at our house.

Jase and Abuelito eating dinner.
My mother boiled some carrots and pureed them for Zach.

He was so excited and and couldn't wait to get his hands on that food.

After taking his first bite, he just sat there like this for about 10 or so seconds. I guess he had to process the flavor and texture.

Needless to say, he loved it!

Since we started him earlier than Jase, he didn't quite know what to do with the food but he got the hang of it enough to get food in his belly.

Thank you Abuelita!

He just loves to swing and watch Jase and Jason do their thing in the yard.

Jase loves to have Zach around and has even started to give Zach his pacifier back to him when he drops it in the car. I saw him put his finger inside it and give it to Zach until Zach latched on to it. There have been a couple of times that I have also caught Jase holding onto Zach's hand in the backseat. Although he loves his brother, he is still not willing to share his own toys but will give him the baby toys.

He just loves it when Jase pushes him in the swing. Check out his face

Zach is still waking me up every 2-3 hours but after the second night of eating he did sleep a six hour stretch after waking up every hour for three hours. Let's see what he does tonight after eating some more green beans. Crossing my fingers! Zach shed his first tear on Sunday. He was hungry in the car and by the time I was able to pull over there it was the single tear streaming down the side of his face. sniff sniff.

I see some cute little piggys!


Jase's favorite thing to say right now is "Hey, What doin'?" He says this to me and Jason and Zach and anyone he sees. Again this is something that I must say to him on a regular basis. He is wearing a 3T and mostly 4T clothes now. They make size 7 Pampers which I can only find at Babies R Us and those fit the best although many times we still have him in the size 6. His shoes are size 9 1/2 and 10. He weighed 42 and 1/2 pounds at doctor last week. Everyone thinks he is either 3 or 4 but definitely acts like a 2 year old. He is back to loving Thomas the Tank Engine and Little Einsteins and Blue's Clues. He is our little parrot so be careful what you say!

Zach is grabbing and reaching for anything and everything. Even things that are far away from him.

If you are happy and you know it...clap your hands! Look at those big paws.

Some other phrases he likes to say.... "Yeah, We did it!"..."I'm so happy"..."I'm coming!!!"..."Hip hip hooray!"..."Don't hurt mommy"..."Whoa whoa be careful, don't fall and bonk bonk your head"
Zach gets upset in the car sometime when he is real hungry so I wanted to try and see if he could drink out of a bottle if I gave him one. We tried one when he was just a couple months old but not since. I put mostly water and a splash of juice to see what he would do. Give me a break, he was holding it to his mouth. He didn't drink much but at least I know that I may be able to pacify him if needed, now I just need to remember to bring a bottle with me.

Glad to hear that Zach may be sleeping longer hours because of the solid food he's now eating. Nice pictures. Give the boyz a big hug from abuelito.
