April has been a busy month. We celebrated Nicholas 1a. (due date) birthday on April 11th. Then, we visited cousin Max, Uncle Cory and Aunt Carissa in Nashville, TN. Nicholas loved checking out the music capital as well as getting to know his cousin Max. We all had a great time and can't wait to get back down there. We helped Mommy M. celebrate her birthday on the 21st by meeting up with Aunt Dianna, Aunt Darlene, Uncle Jay along with cousins Andrew and Kaitlynn in Chicago. We all had a great time doing some shopping on Michigan Ave and dining at some nice restaurants.
Nicholas finally got his haircut last Friday. It was definitely time and we are happy with the cut. We didn't go short boy at first, we'll get there gradually. He did great with the help of a sucker. We were all sticky after that as he doesn't realize you need to swallow the juices that result from sucking on the sucker :)!. He loves finger food and is demanding to be more independent every day. He loves pulling up on everything, especially the cupboards where he finds all kinds of goodies to pull out. He is starting to furniture walk and we're working with physical therapy every other week on ways to get him walking. With Nicholas it's all about motivation. He has to have a reason to want to walk, otherwise, crawling suffices.
We hope you are all doing well and no one was impacted by the crazy weather they have been having in the Southeast. Take care and summer is right around the corner.
Denise, Denise, and Nicholas
