trying new things...

this has been the recent theme at our house over the last few days...

Especially with Vinny! I have been bolder with pushing him with trying new things with feeding and his physical activities...

I have been giving Vinny a sippi cup with all of his oral feedings. He loves to chew on the rubber spout (especially since he has a top tooth coming in). With my assistance, we tip the cup up and he will occassionally suck from it in between the biting...

Practice, practice, practice, and more practice!

Vinny's team and I feel that we should up his PT and really get him going on his physical mobility skills. Here he is working with his wonderful PT on sitting up! He is progressively getting better with this. He is now feeling more comfortable to lift his hands during sitting and reach out for toys! I am so proud of him!

Today was Leo's first day at his new preschool. He will be attending the "High 5'ers" program. He was so excited and had himself ready by 8:30 even though school doesn't start till 12:30.

My sweet sweet boy.

Leo was so excited (even though it doesn't look like it) to hold Vinny for a quick shot.

Frankie starts preschool tomorrow, so more pictures to come!


  1. Is high 5ers like a pre K program? That is what we are doing this year is PreK because we don't meet the Kindergarten cutoff age.

    Looks like things are moving a long!

  2. Go Vinny! He's looking great! that sippy cup is a great idea, i think i'll try it ... not that she's doing much this week anyway, but it's all about the ups and downs, right?

    all of your boys are so freakin adorable!
