Swim meet

Allia had a swim meet this past weekend. She swam both days thanks to some friends of ours bringing her Sunday. She hasn't done that in a while because Austin decided he cannot give up his whole weekend...too hard to make it through the next week. I think Allia decided the same thing after this meet. She was so exhausted Sunday and didn't swim nearly as well as Saturday.
Here is one of her Saturday events, 50 Freestyle. (She dropped time in all 3 events that day!) She is in the bright green suit with pink cap.

Leaps and bounds

Cecilia is growing fast. She now has 4 teeth and is taking up to 7 steps, usually from somebody to me! I really need to try and get a video...

11 Months Old and a 3rd tooth!

Amidst a busy week of celebrations, mass, etc., Cecilia cut her 3rd tooth (first top one). And she turned 11 months old. I cannot believe we only have one more month until our baby turns 1. We all agree that time is going by way too quickly! She is balancing really well, cruising around and can even take one or two steps between objects/people.
She was having so much fun shaking this balloon like crazy!

Halloween and All Saints' Day

For the first time ever, Austin went with a friend of ours and our oldest kiddos to trick or treat after the vigil mass. They were supposed to only go on our street but ended up going a lot farther!

Then we had a lovely All Saints' party the next morning at which I completely forgot to take any photos. :/ So sad! I guess this just brings home the reason we don't usually participate in makes things too busy and distracts from the real feast day!!! :p And did I mention that we now have way.too.much.candy.?

Sharing and sleeping

We have been doing a lot of sharing with Cecilia lately. She likes almost anything but eggs, especially if it comes off of one of our plates!
 And a sweet sleeping girl

Cold weather!

We had a snap of refreshingly cold weather the last few days. It was so fun to go to the park in jackets and hats. It was gorgeous weather!
Gloria was so sweet swinging Cecilia and playing this little spinning peekaboo game with her.
