7 months and March of Dimes / 7 meses y "March of Dimes"

Tobias has mastered his siting skills / Tobias ya se sienta solito como un grandulon

Tobias turned 7 months yesterday!. I know I always say this, but really, time just flies.
He had his well-being check up and immunizations a week ago and he did really good. He is not quite on the growth curve for weight, but he is getting there. He weighted 14lb, 11oz. On the other hand he is tall and smart! He is on the 50th percentile for height (26 3/4 in) and 60th percentile for head circumference. His pediatrician kept saying and saying "He is just perfect"!!!

Tobias cumplio 7 meses ayer!. Yo se que siempre digo esto, pero de verdad, el tiempo no corre sino que vuela. La semana pasada Tobias tuvo cita con el pediatra para el chequeo de los 6 meses y vacunas. Le fue super bien. Todavia no esta en la curva de crecimiento para el peso, pero ya casi. Esta pesando 14lb, 11oz. Sin embargo, es alto e inteligente!. De altura esta en el percentil 50, midiendo 26 pulgadas y 3/4 y la circunferencia de la cabeza esta en el percentil 60. El pediatra no paraba de decir "Es que es perfecto!!"

He loves to cross his leg when siting to eat / Le encanta cruzar la pierna cuando lo sentamos a comer

See?. By the way, his shirt says "Warning, I bite". And he really does, he loves to chew on everything, but he also started to bite me while breast feeding. No cool!/ Ven? Por cierto, en su camiseta dice "Cuidado, Yo muerdo" y es verdad, no solo le encanta comerse todo lo que se le atraviesa, sino que tambien ahora le ha dado por morderme mientras le estoy dando pecho! No muy chevere que digamos!

What are these??. Shoes??. I'm wonder if they taste as good as they look? / Que son estos? Zapatos??. Me pregunto si sabran rico, porque se ven divinos!

As the weather warms up we are spending more time outside and he loves it (we all do, actually). I started working part time, so now I get to spend two days a week + weekends with the kids, and I love it!. I have always been a very career oriented person, but I am really enjoying this new stage of my life.

Since I have no time to work out, I got a double jogger stroller and it is awesome. I have already used it to go for a couple of jogs, and the kids really love it.

It is comfy!

Today, our team O-babies walked on the March for babies. I am very proud to say that with your help we raised $545 to support the March of Dimes. Thank you so much to all the people that supported our team by donating or walking with us or both! I would also like to thank Mark and Sally (John's parents), my mom, and Margarita, Alex and David (our good friends from San Antonio) who couldn't be here but walked with us from their hearts!

Lets walk!!. March of dimes

Our family is walking in March for Babies on April 30. We are proud to be helping the March of Dimes by walking together for stronger, healthier babies.

Our team (O-babies) is walking in celebration of the health and successful recovery of Tobias, who was born with a birth defect called an Omphalocele. We are also walking in honor of all other O-babies and in memory of those O-angels that are no longer with us.

The March of Dimes works to understand and prevent the problems that threaten our babies and supports local programs that help women have full term pregnancies and healthy babies.

We want to help, and that’s why we are walking. I would love if you can join us!. Please visit our team page at http://www.marchforbabies.org/team/t1563489 to join our team or make a donation. For all of you in Fort Collins, I would love if you can join our team and walk with us and for all of you that are not in Fort Collins, please consider joining our group online and help us reach our fundraising goal. Also if you know somebody that would like to join please spread the word.
