Baby Book Entry: Dez.

*At the ripe age of 13+ months, Dez popped two teeth out! We've been on baby food since he was 4 months old so this is AMAZING NEWS! I might have painted my face Braveheart style, run into the street, threw my arms in the air and yelled "FREEDOM!".

*In unrelated news, our neighbors just moved out.

*Dez also started walking at 12 months, thanks to a need/desire/passion to kick the soccer ball. Click here for the vid.

*He's signing "more", "all done" and "please" regularly. Yes, he's brilliant. nbd.

*At his 12 month appt the doctor was less than impressed with Dez's height progress so we may look into some testing stuff at his 15mos appt next month. Meanwhile, I'm stuffing him full of as much food as he'll eat.

*In unrelated news, Dez really enjoys hanging by his ankles.

*Dez is already quite skilled in the art of sword fighting. Eliot has named him Ninja Baby.

*He's definitely a pistol around here. He's as silly as he is feisty. Gonna have to pull out a different kind of parenting on this one.

*Good thing he's ridiculously cute...

i don't comment often but i read frequently. we have a guat tot who was born in 10/06, and 5 years later in 11/11, our baby bear was born (another transracial adoption). bear's hair looks so much like dez's. i mostly co-wash, use a good leave-in conditioner, and coconut oil. could i trouble you for some hair tips... if you have any? we have no plans to cut it in the foreseeable future.
