3 Steps!

Sebastian took 3 steps by himself today! We couldn't get it on video, but we managed to catch him balancing on his own.



And a few others for fun









Last Ice Skating

The two ice skating girls finished up last night just in time for soccer to start up. They both passed to the next level, but we will take the next session off from skating as soccer takes over again!

Birthday Dinner

We had my nephew, Jared, over for a birthday dinner last night (his birthday was Saturday). It was so great to see him. He has been at A&M for the last few years, but we hardly ever see him. Crazy! And Sebastian took to him really well as you can see by the big smile!

We usually fast from desserts/treats for Lent as a family, so the children welcomed the opportunity to have a birthday dessert with him, too!

Sleeping beauty

It is not very often that I get a peek at this girl sleeping, as she does not seem to need as much sleep as the rest of the world. But I got a peek the other day and decided to snap a picture.

Outside time

We had lovely weather this last week, and spent as much time outside as possible. Sebastian is really getting around now and loves finding something to use as a walker!

Lito and Lita Visit

We had a wonderful visit with Lito and Lita this last weekend. We went to Saturday evening mass together, and Lito surprised the children with a trip to the carnival after a quick dinner. They were thrilled, as they have been wanting to go for years!!!

Three girls on the hang glider (they said it felt like flying)

 Riding the bumble bee
 And the spinning tea cup
 SO MUCH FUN! They were up very late, but it was worth it for sure.

Lita fed Sebastian while I was teaching RE Sunday morning. The quickest way to a boy's heart, you know. ;)

And of course, some reading time with Lito!
We really enjoyed seeing them!

Piano and a portrait

Gloria started piano lessons this week. So exciting!

And this just made such a cute little portrait of a boy admiring himself, I couldn't resist.
