3 Years Gone

Wow. Silas at 9 Months was my last entry way back in 2009. Wow. Time is a fast running challenger. Seems to get faster all the time. No matter how hard I train, I will never be able to out run him.

Tomorrow is Silas' 4th birthday party. F.O.U.R.T.H. Four years is a long way from 9 months! Holy moly! My baby is such an amazing young boy. I knew back at 9 months that he was super special, but as I've come to know him over the past 3 years and 3 months since I've been amazed time and again by his sense of empathy. His ability to read the emotion of a situation and either diffuse it or ignite it, depending on his mood (and how much sleep he's had). His wit and understanding of abstract ideas. Happy Birthday Baby Silas!! Thank you for being my little monkey. I love you so very much.

Silas 9 Months Old

Yes. 9 Months. Wow. Now I've been on the outside as long as I was on the inside! Woo hoo!

I can go up the stairs - all of them. Daddy likes to make me do it. Mommy won't watch. But I crawl up slowly. I think it is fun!

I still like to cruise around on my feet holding onto things. Sometimes I let go for a few seconds before I realize it an gracefully fall to my butt.

My brothers and I play "baby chase" every day. Daddy sets me up near the TV and I start to crawl - FAST - and try to catch my brothers. So far they are faster than I am, but I am gaining every day.

I like to empty the toy box. All of my brother's toys right on the floor. They don't like it when I do it, but I think it's fun! I also like to sit in the swing outside and swing while Vladimir and Waylon play in the dirt or whatever it is they do outside.

I still love food. I like turkey meatballs and avocado. Maybe those are my two favorite things. I also like pancakes. Mommy makes them with rice milk since I am allergic to cow's milk. Yum, yum! I like chicken too. Mommy bakes it and cuts it up for me.

I have 4 teeth now. Two top and two bottom. More are coming because boy oh boy do I drool! I am always wet and I like to slobber on everyone, calling it a "kiss". hehehe...

I like to stand up in the bathtub. It drives mommy nuts! I just have too many things to explore, like the spicket, the drain, the is very exciting.

I went to the doctor last week. She said I am "long and lean"! Very unlike my brothers were at my age. They were fat - round, even. Not me! I am tall, 3o inches, in the 75%, but skinny. I only weight 19lbs and that put me in the 25%. Doctor says it is because I spend so much time trying to chase my brothers.

Mommy isn't home right now. She had to go to Texas for work. She should be home tomorrow. Gaga Adzentoivich is staying with us. She has been here for about 2 weeks. I am having so much fun with her. I love her!!!

Silas Seven Months Old

At a restaurant after my bed time for Uncle Bryan and Aunt Sam's wedding rehearsal dinner - December 2008
Time flies. 7 months already. Wow. Mommy has been very bad about posting for me. I will forgive her someday, but not sure when.

Let's see. What have I been up to lately? Well, I can sit myself up onto my butt. I can roll any which way I chose. I can get onto my knees and kneel. I also have pulled myself up to standing in my play yard and on the stairs and on toys. I have cruised around dad's room while holding onto the couch. Yes! I can't wait to play with my big brothers!!

Look! I can sit up by myself!!

I like to eat food. Not baby food. Not a bottle. I barely take 20 ounces a day from the bottle. Mommy doesn't nurse me anymore. She stopped about two weeks ago once I began to bite her. I have two sharp bottom teeth on the bottom. But that's it. Just two. I drool a lot so I guess the others are on their way soon.

Me and my favorite sippy cup

So, back to eating. Yes. I like teething cookies. I like Cheerios. I also have a taste for those Gerber finger foods. I tried a piece of banana today and also a few pieces of avocado. Not mashed up, but in pieces. I did a pretty good job getting it all into my mouth. Mommy gave me #3 baby food for dinner with chunks of veggies in it. Yum. I don't really like to eat the baby cereal anymore. Just so much mush.

I like to laugh. A lot! I also like to talk. I say "ba-ba" for bottle. I say "baa" for bath. Gaga Wood says that I say "papa" but mommy hasn't heard that yet. I like to babble too. Make up my own sounds for stuff. Soon I will be talking with my big brothers!

Hangin with Waylon and Vladimir

I like to watch Waylon and Vladimir. They are so cool. Way cool. Wicked cool. As far as I am concerned. I watch them like a hawk every chance I get! I like to reach out and touch them and they say "no baby!" and move away. Sometimes they give me a hug and kiss but usually mommy or daddy asks them to first. When I cry they say "shhh baby" and if I make noise when they are watching TV they say "shhh baby". They tell me I can't eat food because I have "no teeth baby". I love them!

I am so easy going. I like to take naps. Two per day. I like to sleep through the night too. Mommy and daddy are so happy about that! I nap in my crib with no problem. Mommy or daddy just put me up there and I talk to myself until I fall asleep with my blankie.

I spent the night at Gaga and Papa Wood's house last week. It was my first night away from home and without my brothers. Mommy was traveling for work so it was much easier for daddy without me in the house. I had a blast! I think gaga and papa like it too.

At the farm with Mommy, Waylon and Vladimir

A few weeks ago I went to the farm in Pennsylvania with mommy, daddy, Waylon and Vladimir. What a fun time! We went to a restaurant, Perkins, for lunch. We hiked into the farm. I got to ride in mommy's backpack for the first time and I loved it. There was so much snow. It was really pretty. Then we had dinner at Uncle Tony's house before the long ride home. I slept in the van and went to bed as soon as we got home. I like to ride in the van because I get to look at my brothers the entire time!

My Christening with Uncle Bryan and Aunt Deanne

Back in December I was Christened at Church and I also went to my Uncle Bryan and Aunt Samantha's wedding. It was so fun. I stayed up past my bed time! My God parents are Uncle Bryan and Aunt Deanne.

With my new Aunt Samantha!

Well, mommy needs to post some pictures here. She will upload some videos this week too - or so she tells me anyway.

First Christmas - dorky suit, thanks Mom...

Oh yeah, one last thing. I like to kiss all the time too. Not contact kisses but air kisses. Just a smack of the lips. Over and over again. >kiss<
