Mariana jumped out of the swing in full flight this weekend. She spent the weekend hopping and limping, barely able to put weight on or move her foot, and it was swollen. We thought surely it was broken, but when we took her in this morning nothing showed up on the x-ray. So it is either a bad sprain/twist or hairline fracture. Either way, she has to be on crutches for a week!

Stephen's question of the day

"Daddy, why did you decide to marry Mommy instead of being a saint?"

We all laughed for several minutes afterward, and he was so confused as to why we thought that was funny!

7 months old!

Our Sebastian is 7 months old today. He is rolling all over the place, scooting backwards (which frustrates him because he intends to move forward), and starting to sit up better. He sleeps from around 8pm to 6/6:30 am most nights and still takes 3 naps of around an hour. He is babbling a lot but prefers to switch up syllables a lot...ah, wah, bah, dah, mah, much so that I really don't know which one he said first! He has two teeth and is working hard on some more.

And a "selfie"

Last Ice Skating

Our two ice skating girls had their last lesson on Tuesday with tests. They both passed their levels, so Gloria moves on to Level 2 and Mariana to Level 4. They were very excited! We will pick back up with their lessons in January, once soccer and the holidays have passed!

Soccer Boy

Stephen is doing great in soccer and loving it, of course. He was so proud to wear his Mario character shirt that Daddy found for him...especially since Daddy was out of town for several days!

Butterfly migration

Austin was home this morning preparing for an out of town trip. He and the children discovered Monarch Butterfly Migration happening right over our back yard. We counted 130 butterflies before we gave up counting!

Tia Becky visit

We had a little visit with Tia Becky on Saturday since she was in town for the game. She managed to squeeze in some Sebastian snuggles!
