Okay, I'm putting this all out here and catching you up to speed on our little guy.
Working on his smile - he's a handsome little guy. June 1, 2009Dominick met his newest cousin, Chester. Chester is only a few weeks old and Dominick already the jokester is practicing the art of silly faces. Frank and I trekked out to Brooklyn to meet our newest nephew - the son of my brother St. John and his wife Linden. June 4, 2009. Doing some tummy time - which he doesn't necessarily hate. June 6, 2009This is one of my absolute favorite pictures. Here are my two boys, sitting back watching the Yankees. You cannot deny who this boy looks like! He's practically a "mini-me" of his daddy. June 10, 2009.
Be ware of stopping this baby mid-bottle to for a burp. This is what you'll get... almost every time. The tear just kills me. He's sooo pissed! June 10, 2009.
First time in a pool - he didn't hate it. But he doesn't look like he loved it either. He's holding on for dear life. July 6, 2009.Snoozing poolside with his cousin Christopher. Christopher is three weeks older then Dominick. We're sure they'll be best of friends or they'll never get along. We're hoping for the first option. July 5, 2009.
We had Dominick baptised on July 19, 2009 at Saint Helena's in Edison. A wonderful ceremony and my brother Mike and Frank's sister Kristen were the God parents. A lovely lunch followed for friends and family at a near by restaurant.
With an outfit this cute - you have to have a little fun! He looked adorable. July 19, 2009.
He was SOUND asleep when Father Anthony baptised him. He started screaming! Poor guy. July 19, 2009.
He was all smiles for our little photo shoot a few days after the event. July 25, 2009.
First bite of rice cereal. He wasn't too sure at first. He warmed up to it real fast and there's no stopping him! It's like feeding a little baby bird - mouth wide open, ready for each bite. If we don't go fast enough, he definitely lets us know. August 8, 2009.
Dominick and Hastings hanging out on the kitchen table. Hastings looks HUGE compared to Dominick. Here, they probably weigh the same, 14/15 pounds give or take. Hastings is so patient with the little guy. Dominick holds out his hand and Hastings will come up underneath wanting to be scratched. When Dominick grabs hold, and wont let go, Hastings just sits there and waits him out. Not sure how long this happy relationship will last. Oh, wait, yes I do, up until Dominick can play "chase the kitty" then Hastings will run for the hills! August 7, 2009.
Yep - we're teething. Can I fit this whole thing in my mouth! Dominick sprouted is first two teeth at the end of July - just when he turned four months old. That's pretty young. He now has his two top teeth too! We've had the occasional late night, and Tylenol usually helps. August 7, 2009.
Check out my Chuck Taylors! Now, I've always thought putting shoes on infants was just ridiculous... until Frank put these puppies on Dominick. He looks so cute! August 26, 2009.
Papa John came to spend a weekend with us and had the opportunity to volunteer at a PGA golf tournament at the Barklay's in Jersey City. Papa had a great time getting to know Dominick and rubbing elbows with Tiger. August 28, 2009.
Angry face. Not sure why. But it's so darn cute! August 28, 2009.
Just playin'. Check out all his hair! It's really filled in after he lost most of it. August 30, 2009.
That's it! Finally all caught up. I will be posting more frequently about all sorts of things. Check back soon.
