Beach Day

After having been back and forth to the hospital for several days in a row visiting Scott's father and mother - Scott, Rocco, and I took a much needed break and headed out to the beach condo for a couple of hours.

First, we took a dip in the pool. Rocco loved hanging out in his whale floaty! (Warning: photo overload)

Afterwards, we headed down to the beach where Rocco promptly fell asleep in the beach tent.

Rocking Out

Rocco is just jamming out to some old school tunes - like 'Baby Beluga'. ;)

Just kidding! I thought it would be funny to put Scott's noise cancelling headphones on him since they went well with the onesie he is wearing (which says 'Old School' at the bottom, but it's hard to read in this photo).

Lake Lily

After having lunch at Antonio's, we took an impromptu walk over to Lake Lily since the weather was so nice. I'm so glad we happened to have this blanket and my camera in the car.

Bottle Holder

I've been meaning to take a photo of this for a while now. Rocco's daycare taught him to hold his own bottle! We don't normally give bottles to Rocco at home, so when we happened to do so today, I had to make sure I got a photo of it.

Crawling, maybe?

Rocco is not crawling yet, but he's thinking about it! So maybe soon?

9 Months Old!

In the past month Rocco:

- learned to hold his own bottle
- said 'da-da' for the first time (for the record, I won since he said 'ma-ma' first the month before!)
- learned to clap his hands
- still has no teeth and basically no hair

Here are his 9 month stats from his pediatrician appointment:
Weight - 18 pounds 14.5 ounces (24th percentile)
Height  - 28.5 inches (60th percentile)


Today Rocco had his 9 month pediatrician appointment. His doctor was concerned that his legs are very flexible, which could potentially be a result of hip dysplasia, so he he ordered x-rays to make sure his hip joints are developing correctly.

At the hospital Rocco got the fun barcode sticker he's sporting in this photo and then he was off to radiology. He didn't cry or fuss during the procedure, like a good boy!

Update 7/20/12: We're happy to report that his results finally came back today and his hips joints are normal. He just apparently has a future career as a performer for Cirque du Soleil ;)

After taking a bath, Rocco loves to lay in bed playing peekaboo by popping his head out from underneath his towel with a huge smile on his face whenever we say "Where's Rocco?".

Casey loves to photobomb whenever he can.

Puppy Pal

Rocco met Nala today. Nala was born only a couple of weeks after Rocco, so they are very close in age. However this photo is very deceiving - Rocco didn't like her very much. Mainly because she kept kissing him in the face and he generally hates anything wet touching his face, period.

4th of July

To celebrate our country's Independence Day, we went to New Smyrna Beach to relax and enjoy the day. The weather was perfect! Rocco enjoyed hanging by the beach and in the pool.

He really loves floating and kicking in the pool, just check out this video:

We were sad when we had to head back home since we had to go to work the next day. But before we went to bed, we had some fun with sparklers spelling out Rocco's name.

We hope everyone else had a wonderful 4th of July!
