Is That Britney Spears & Baby Sean?

Nope! That's Coleen Balent and Baby Currier!

Antonio & Bina

Antonio and Bina are helping me master this walking thing. I love spending time at their house. They take me for walks, they feed me fresh pasta, they let me watch Italian cartoons, and they play with me in their garden. Antonio and Bina can't pronounce my name "Currier" so they just call me "Curioso", which means curious in Italian.

Just Wait!

My mom thinks it's funny to sneak into my room and take photos of me napping in funny poses. What she doesn't know is that when she is old and feeble I will take photos of her while she is napping and I can guarantee the pictures of her won't be as cute as mine!

Do You Think It's Time For A New Car Seat?!

There are two stipulations before changing an infant from a rear-facing car seat to a forward-facing car seat—1. The child must weigh more than 20lbs= CHECK! 2. The child must be at least one year of age= ONLY 25 DAYS UNTIL I GET A BIG BOY CAR SEAT!
Can you believe this is me in the same car seat on the day my parents brought me home from the hospital?

Funny Story

Last night my Mom was hugging and kissing me and she asked, "Who in this world do you love more than your Mama?" Before she could demand, "No one!" I said, "Dada"! I don't know what I said that was so funny, but my Dad almost fell out of his chair laughing.

Sitting On The Dock Of The Bay

In the afternoons when I'm supposed to be napping, my mom checks in to find me lounging with my legs hanging out of my crib. I'm practicing my relaxing poolside poses for the summer!

Eleven Months Old Today... April 19th 2007

This month was monumental! I learned how to walk and then I learned how to crawl in the traditional way rather than on my belly. I know! I did things a little backwards. Now that I’m fully mobile, my parents are on 24 hour alert. I move lickety split and I am attracted to all things that are dangerous or fragile. Our guest room is quickly filling up with all those “things”, so if you plan to visit we hope you can find the bed! My babysitter, Bina, says that I am molto l'independent and my parents can’t argue with that. I do not like to be spoon fed baby food, so Mom and Dad chop big people food into tiny bite size pieces and I am happy feeding myself (and the dogs!). I tap my feet or bounce up and down when I hear music. I clap when I’m excited. I squeal in delight when I see kids. I smile at strangers. I flirt with pretty women. I crack up laughing over the most random things… sneezes, the word “zoom”, and dogs howling. I’m growing up so fast that my mom keeps asking, “Where did my little baby go?!”

My Television Debut

Dad and I were interviewed at the Easter Egg Hunt and it made the AFN (Armed Forces Network) News...

I Scream. Dawson Screams. We All Scream For Gelato!

There is a Tavola Calda (literally translates "hot table") at the end of my street that serves all sorts of warm yummies such as panini (sandwiches) and arancini (fried rice balls filled with meat sauce, mozzarella and peas). This particular Tavola Calda also serves biscotti (cookies) and gelato (like ice cream only better!).
After a long walk up and down the hills of Motta Sant'Anastasia, Dawson and I stopped at the Tavola Calda to cool off from the warm Sicilian afternoon by sharing a gelato and eating biscotti.

Life is good!

Easter Hike

After playing with my new toys from the Easter bunny, we went on a hike in the countryside of Motta Sant’Anastasia with our friends Meagan and Jack to try out our new Kelty Adventure Kid Carrier. This piece of equipment is the bomb and my dad highly recommends it.

Easter Morning

Paolo, Bruco and I woke up this morning to find Easter baskets filled with goodies from the Easter bunny. My Mimi and Papi also sent me a special monkey basket filled with summer attire... Grazie per tutti!

Sicilian Easter Egg Cookie

My babysitter, Bina, made me this cookie for Easter. She said that this is a traditional Sicilian Easter cookie. Bina taught me that "Buona Pasqua" means "Happy Easter" in Italian. BUONA PASQUA!

Easter Egg Hunt & The Easter Bunny

This morning I went to my first Easter egg hunt. And I met the Easter bunny.
It was egg-cellent!

Mom and Dad had a good laugh watching me!
