|Vincent was a pumpkin for Halloween|
6 weeks old
The past few weeks have been really fun and busy. Of course things are busy with a little one, but we also took a little trip to the Piedmont last weekend and stayed in Moncalvo again for the truffle festival. Between that and wrapping up things after my dad and Deb left, it's been a busy couple of weeks.

The truffle festival was great! We went to Alba to the truffle market during a rainy day, and enjoyed the atmosphere of wine, yummy snacks (salame and cheese) and trufffles. The entire tent just smelled of truffle- it's so potent! We bought some white and black truffles and had fun in the process. To buy, you look at the shape (it should be round), and also the smell is a big part of it. They all smell a little different- some earthy, some woody, some like nuts... I never imagined it would be so interesting. We made some pasta last week with the white truffle and it was delicious!!

He was too cold!

Last week Vincent had his two month check up and he is very healthy. He does have some cradle cap though, so we are debating what to do about that. We can keep up with the recommended method of just washing his hair and using a soft brush or comb to get up the pieces, or we can go to the pharmacy and pick something up for it. It seems to be getting worse, so I think I'll be opting for the pharmacy. The doctor also recommended some massage therapy for him to start using the left side of his body more- the bump from the birth had him always turning to the right. He can hold up his head though! Still a bit of a bobble head... but he can do it. Here are some new stats for you:
|2 month photo shoot!|
Weight: 6.350 kg, 90-97% (13.99 lbs!)
Height: 62 cm, 97% (24.5 inches)
Head circumference: 41 cm, 75-90% (16 inches)
(they measure the head circumference- not sure if they do that back home??)
At two months he is only a pound away from doubling his birth weight, and my shoulders are starting to feel it! Man, bouncing him to sleep at night is not as easy as it use to be. Now I sit on a big exercise ball to put him to sleep. It saves the shoulders!!
|I just love his sweet face!|
That's all for now. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!! We'll have some fun stuff for you after that since it's Vincent's first Thanksgiving and our second annual Italian Thanksgiving. Turkey has been ordered, and we are preparing- I'm so excited!!
