School time!

We started school yesterday, but it got trumped by Sebastian's 5 month birthday. :) It was quite a morning, but we finished all of our work by 2:30pm, and nobody went crazy, so that was good!

I spent my "free" time this summer helping to build the atrium for our Catechesis of the Good Shepherd program at church. In the process I discovered this little table, unfinished and in our shed. So I finished it, and it turns out to be the perfect little work/snack space for the younger crowd. We really need a bigger school room!

5 Months Old

Sebastian is 5 months old today! I love this marker because it is typically downhill from here...more cute baby fun, less sleeplessness, etc. And they are just so stinkin' cute!

He is still a very happy, content boy most of the time. Although he has begun the long process of teething, chewing and drooling a lot and is sometimes a little fussy with that. He is down to 4 naps of 30 minutes to an hour each and stays awake about an hour and a half in between. One is in the moby and the other 3 in the swing. I am hoping to transition him from the swing to the crib in the next month or so, but we need to get school going strong before I tackle that! He had two nights last week that he slept 10 hours, which was amazing! Looking forward to another month with our guy!

Random stuff

As I was getting photos off mine and Austin's phone,

Austin took Mariana on a special date to a painting class
 Sebastian hangs out with Fr. Curtis at a wedding earlier this month
 Anastasia in her Bucees shirt from Manah and Pawpaw
 The girls receive dresses from Manah (minus Gloria in CC) and Anastasia sports her new Cheetah skirt

Weekend moments

Lito and Lita made a multi-purpose trip. They returned Gloria, Lito met Sebastian for the first time, and they celebrated Julian's first birthday. Fun weekend!

Gloria's Trip, the rest

Some photos were on Austin's phone, so here is what I was missing (the beginning and end of her trip)...

On their way there, they stopped at McDonald's for lunch. :)

Gloria's trip part 1

Lita has been doing a good job keeping us updated on "princess Gloria" as I have started calling her. She is definitely getting the royal treatment for her week with Lita! And thanks to the Iphone (texts and face time), we have been keeping abreast of all her goings on...sometimes a little to our detriment (wishing we were all having so much fun too!). ;)

Plenty of treats of course
With her new American Girl, Kit (she has a gift to open each day and received several mini dolls before this one!)

 After a trip to the beach
 The first half of the week was at the beachhouse in Port Aransas. Today they are at the house in Corpus Christi...
At the Aquarium

We sure miss this girl but are glad she is having such a great time!

Gloria's trip

Gloria was off with Lita Saturday morning for her 6 year old "week at Lito and Litas" trip! They headed to the new beachhouse first for a few days and then will go to the house in CC. What a big girl! We sure will miss her this week. And she sure will miss Sebastian, so she had to get some last minute baby snuggles in before she left. :)
