It's as if Santino is saying, "Whoohoo! I'm so ready for my 1st birthday next week, so I don't have to pose for these 'weekly photos' anymore!!!" haha
The biggest news is last week we started transitioning Santino to Maximus' room. Maximus now sleeps in his toddler bed, while Santino sleeps in M's old crib. And for the most part, it's going really well. Maximus loves having his little brother in there and in the mornings, M will sometimes greet Santino by saying, "Hi buddy." He also refers to S as "bambino" since Rob and I call him that a lot.
Santino has another tooth coming in, his 7th tooth. It's on the lower left, next to the center front tooth. It really seems to be bothering him, poor guy. And it appears that the other side will be poking through any day as well.
Santino continues to practice his walking. Sometimes he takes a series of steps and other times he only does one or two. He's also getting much better with balance and can stand for longer periods without holding onto anything.
He tries to imitate his brother in so many ways. And he also likes to tease and play with Maximus. Santino will grab and pull at Maximus' hair. He does it when they are sitting next to each other.
