The innocence is fading and a little monster is emerging!

Today marks the day where our little boy has revealed an inner being, a being that is no longer the perpetual smiling young baby that we have grown used to. The waterfall drooling indicates that his mouth is in transition and that formations are working their way through his soft gum tissue. He has taken to biting everything in sight! Along with this, he has learned to vocalize frustrations. Something as simple as turning off the music on his Mozart cube resulted in cries of disappointment and demand to turn it back on which, when done, flipped the switch and the cries immediately stopped. Mozart cube fell on the floor and again, “pick that up!”

Karaoke singing + Mozart cube + cries of disappointment = chaos

It’s beginning to look a lot like?

Holiday Baby!

Grayson did what?!

10 weeks old and Grayson is able to flip himself over! Way to go my boy!

Home Sweet Home Rocco!

Well it took us a really long time and it was literally down to the wire because the hospital was just waiting for us to turn in all of our documentation, but we finally took the last step and chose an official name for Rocco. It was months and months of deliberation and we thought we had landed on the name Marcus because it was a strong worthy name with an admirable meaning of “war-like” or “hammer”. When it came down to the final hour, Misty finally admitted that “meh, I don’t love it”.
I said, “what do you mean you don’t love it?”
Misty said “it’s ok. If you like it then we’ll go with Marcus.”
And I was dumbfounded! How could we give our child a name that would make Misty cringe a little every time she would say his name? So we went back through names and talked some more. We sought council from Felicia who also thought Marcus was a strong name (although she never admitted that she actually LIKED the name). Finally, after much discussion and after staring at Rocco pictures and saying names out loud, we finally landed on a name and I think it fits. Welcome home Grayson James Chiu!

Discharge Day

Today is the day! Rocco will get to see his new home and will get a new official name!
