Steelers played on Sunday while the kids were awake...so we had to all don our jerseys and make time for pics. Dom is wearing a 3T jersey that Vince wore last year and Vince is wearing the jersey we bought (with Zatelli on the back) before he was born and had framed....it was harder than I thought to rob the frame and take the jersey out....mostly because it cost a small fortune to have framed.

As I typed the title, I realized that some of these aren't instagrammed....oh well, you get the idea.
Every once in awhile it works out that I get about 1 hour of Vince time (just the 2 of us) on Friday mornings before school while Tony takes Dom to my moms. I LOVE IT! We usually go grab breakfast and chat. Last Friday morning he picked donuts so we went to Daylight Donuts and pigged out on a chocolate glazed donut and chocolate milk.....then I sent him off to school and let his teacher's deal with his energy! haha!
Yep, that's right....Dom's got a case of beer in the back of his truck....
Hopefully as Dom gets older and more independent we can do more of these activities...I've pinned a ton on Pinterest, gotta put them to use sometime soon!
This is a little late but Dominic had his 1 year check up last week. He weighed in at 23lb 14oz (try convincing my arms of that....I thought for sure he was pushing 26-27lbs) and measured 30 1/8 inches. Poor guy had to get a finger stick and a shot in both arms and both legs. What a trooper! We got the ok to eat all foods except nuts/peanuts. I thought for sure we started Vince on peanut butter at 1 year...has that changed in the last 3 years? We've started to wean the bottle (he really only gets a few ounces a day...in the morning, before naps, and at bedtime) but he has no interest in real milk yet. He knows how to use a sippy cup but he doesn't care for it to have milk in it. Guess we'll just keep trying!
Vince and Nathan had their first Tball game on Saturday....coached by Uncle Patrick. They all did a great job (and Uncle Patrick has the patience of a Saint to teach 8 kids how to play a sport most had never been exposed to)! We can't wait till the next game.

We started Dom's birthday with homemade chocolate chip pancakes....why not start the sugar rush early! Nom nom nom....
Goofballs....I have no idea what Vince is doing...
