Hi again! Sorry we have been MIA but Ryan and I seemed to have broken our cameras within one week of each other and we have been cameraless, I know, it's horrible! So I will update you with words this time and post pictures later.
Remi is doing great and his personality seems to shine more and more each day. He is saying a ton of words now (provoked only when we say, "Remi say car...His response..."cah") He can say keys, car, truck, phone..he pronounces phone like this ..."pour"...it's close enough. mama, dada, doggie...pretty much one syllable words at this point but it is adorable. he points to everything that fancies him and when he gets angry or frustrated he can throw a tantrum with the best of them. When he gets really frustrated he clenches his fists together, screams, and throws himself face first onto the floor, it's quite a site and sometimes i have to laugh at his effort, other times, I want to join in his tantrum. He tries desperately to climb onto the couch from his little chair and when he makes it to the couch, he runs around on it and then goes head first onto his chair and....it's a mess, he usually ends up in tears but the satisfaction on his face when he reaches the couch is priceless. This is when I decided to put him in a gymboree class. He loves it and gets an hour a week to climb to his heart's content. We are also joining a swim class this week, more for fun than lessons, but we figure he likes the bath so much and the pool time we have had so far.
He is growing like a weed, still tall with big hands and feet...we are giving his old shoes away to his 20 month old friend (my child has huge feet, it's a little weird)...remember my child is only 14 1/2 months old! He also has more hair then I would ever know what to do with. Ryan threatened to give him a mohawk tomorrow...scary! He still only has his lonesome 5 teeth but we can see a bunch more trying to make there way through the gum line...so at this point we should buy stock in motrin. We think he has been going through a growth spurt because there are many wonderful nights where we will put him to bed at 7 pm and he will wake up at 9 or 10 am.....it's magical. All in all I think we got pretty lucky with this one, he is a very happy child who loves to laugh and play hide and seek from daddy and I look at him everyday and just think how perfect and beautiful he is.
One more funny thing...he has found his penis...and he loves it! when we change his diaper he finds it and plays with it and laughs..and then he flicks it and twist it, which makes ryan cringe, but his little face when he finds it...he lights up....I am so not looking forward to his teenage years!
And now for the big news, which you all already know....I'M PREGNANT! yes, I'm sure everyone knows but I am 14 weeks pregnant and starting to feel somewhat normal again, still exhausted but the morning sickness has subsided which is all i asked for. We will find out in 4 weeks if it is a boy or girl ( I'm sure it's a boy) So I will let everyone know. My due date is December 15! I already look pretty big in the belly and so when I rub the belly i say "baby" to remi and he smiles and pats mama's tummy...then tries to steal my belly button. Talk to you all soon!
