Late Christmas post

7 months 2 weeks

Sorry everyone, a little late on the Christmas post! As you can imagine, it was crazy!! Brock was so spoiled and got more toys than we know what to do with or have room for! LOL! He's one lucky boy!!

He get the 2nd half of his flu shot last week and at the appointment, we discovered a 2nd tooth! He know has both his bottom teeth coming in. He doesn't let you look at them much because he usually covers them up with his tongue when you try to catch a peak!!

Christmas weekend was insanely hectic and flew by! Friday night (Christmas Eve Eve) we went over to Drew/Erin's for the first annual Barbosa Egg Nogg-Off...the boys drank egg nogg, the girls drank wine. Brock just played like a little angel with his toys!

Christmas Eve was dinner with Grammie and Mia at our house. He had his first bite of mashed potatoes! He didn't mind it, but didn't love it. Christmas day was morning with Mia and Grammie again, lunch at Grandma and Grandpa  Barbosa's, then dessert/presents at Great Grandma Elsie's. He got to play with his cousin Joey at lunch and it was so cute! He was sharing all his toys with Joey and they were having fun together. Next year, I'm sure they'll be chasing each other all over the house! He got lots and lots of toys and we had a full car from both Gary/Judy's and Elsies!

The day after Christmas we mostly relaxed at home. We all needed some rest after the crazy Christmas weekend! It was hard to come back to work after those few days off!!

Ok, now with that out of the way, here are some fun things Brock is up to right now.
- Shaking his head like he's saying 'no' - I don't think he's trying to say 'no', but he likes to shake his head like that
- Talking in all different voices - he'll be really high pitched sometimes and it's so funny
- Not eating - he's getting a little better now, but he went through a phase where we had to force him to eat food - well, food like his cereal and veggies - still loves his bottles!
- Doesn't like: peas, green beans
- Loves: squash, zucchini, sweet potatoes
- This week he has carrots and he's sort of on the fence about them
- He loves to drink water out of a sippy cup - we don't give him much, but he likes to chew on it and feels like a big boy when he can get water out
- He's full on in 9 month clothes and sometimes even 12 month stuff
- He's going thru major separation anxiety - if Nick or I leave the room (sometimes even when the other one is holding him), he starts fussing and crying. It's hard not to rush right back in, but everything I've read says to try and be strong and not encourage it!
- He's favoring Nick a little more than Mommy right now and it's not easy on's not all the time, but when it happens, it rips my heart out!

I can't believe 2011 is going to be over tomorrow! It has by far been the best year of my life! I have had so much fun and am a little torn about 2012. I'm so sad to see 2011 go, but there are so many exciting things coming up next year that I'm looking forward to what it will bring for the Barbosas!
